This article must've been a victim of the meteors, too. It's in desperate need of cleanup!

Lin's Gambit is the 21st mission in Advanced Wars: Days of Ruin.


The Creeper virus has begun to spread rapidly among the NRA because the infected refuse to reveal themselves, for fear of execution. Greyfield himself has also contracted the virus, and demands a cure, something Caulder claims he is hours away from acquiring. Intent on destroying the 12th Battalion, Greyfield is introduced to Caulder's weapon of mass destruction, the Caulder Missiles. However, the meteors have damaged the launching systems, requiring 40 days for repairs to be complete.

With the defeat of Waylon and his forces, the 12th Battalion proceeds to face Greyfield and his army. Taking command, Lin leads the rebels in a race against time to ensure that Greyfield will not be able to activate this horrible weapon.

Securing the sea is a must. Build a defensive blockcade in the east and focus on sea power and destorying Greyfield's Navy. Once this goal is accomplished, build Battleships and Carriers/Seaplanes to pound units on land. Land units behind Greyfield's to create a distraction and push hard in the east. Capture the central factory to allow for an easy push to Greyfields HQ.
