This final level isn't all that bad, but there are a couple of things to note about it before both starting it as well as getting frustrated at the final battle sequence if you cannot master it right off the bat.

First of all proceed through the level as you normally would, taking your time and making sure to put your ships in the best position possible for success. On the ship note, there are a few things I recommend:
-Have the Missouri sit somewhere around the right hand side of that red 2x2 square (it represents the Enemy Flagship). The reason behind this is that you will need the Missouri to pound the flagship, and will only be allowed to use it to tackle the final scene as the other ships cannot harm it.
-Have your sub and cruiser stick with the Reagan as protectors which will essentially go from the right hand side of the map, to the bottom of the island, to above the island as you progress through the mission.
-Equip your sub with torpedoes and missiles and be sure to upgrade them. Your sub will ravage any and all ships that come for the Reagan, and does considerably better damage than the cruiser. Also remember to equip the Missouri with the torpedoes, missiles, armor, and leadership to make it a juggernaut.

As far as the final battle goes I have just a few additional tips to help you ensure victory:
-When you begin the final battle make sure to stay back and use either the railgun or the carbine to take enemies out from afar. After you eliminate the first wave of enemies already in place, you will only have to deal with regular units and rolling mines.
-Only run into the center area to pick up key wild cards that WILL benefit you greatly. The most pivotal of them all is the control ship card as you can generally destroy an entire ship in one 20 second burst.
-The Reagan will attempt to stop to the left of the top support square, so while you are weakening the shields on the flagship have the Missouri one square to the left of it, and have the sub and cruiser in front of the Reagan. This set up allows you to have your Missouri in the best position to attack the flagship, and allows covering fire from the sub and cruiser.

You may not take the flagship down in one 20 second sequence, so if you do in fact fail that attempt do the following:
-Leave the Missouri in place to destroy the shields.
-Allow the sub and cruiser to target the most deadly of the 4-5 ships that will spawn and attack the Reagan.
-Once the key ships are destroyed allow your other 2 ships to come back and support the Missouri.
-Remember to stay back to survey the field just in case a mine or an enemy unit slips through and begins to cause problems.
