Anybody know what happened to Invasion, while we're here?
Battlecry is love, but it always bugged me you can't use the Super VF or Armored Battaloid on land...unless you cheat.
There's at least one mission, Stormy Friendship, you can skip. Do so. Get access to the space-only thingie of your choice. Complete the game...EXCEPT for Stormy Friendship. Then, go play the escorting the Cat's Eye through the debris and the attack on the ARMD missions using your favorite space-only thingie.
You ought to arrive at Stormy Friendship...still in your souped-up space gear. Aww yeah.
Super VF-1S was the only way I ever managed to beat that one anyways.
