    The other guide is correct but I wanted to create a more gamplay oriented guide to help everyone.

    This is the deployment I used for all 38 of the missions (8 Tutorial and 30 Main):

    C X X X X X X X X D - C = Carrier
    C X X X X X X X X D - B = Battleship
    C X X X X X X X X D - D = Destroyer
    C X X X X X X X X X - S = Submarine
    C X X X X X X X P X - P = Patrol Boat
    X X X X X X X X P X
    X B X X X X X X X X
    X B X X X X X X X S
    X B X X X X X X X S
    X B X X X X X X X S

    I used almost exclusively the Carriers White attack and the Submarines Red attack, these are the two attacks around detecting entire lines of the board, the red will usually do two lines but stop when it finds a hit. Alternate between vertical and horizontal and every other line, as follows:
    | X X X X X X X X X X
    > X X X X X X X X X X
    | X X X X X X X X X X
    > X X X X X X X X X X
    | X X X X X X X X X X
    > X X X X X X X X X X
    | X X X X X X X X X X
    > X X X X X X X X X X
    | X X X X X X X X X X
    > X X X X X X X X X X

    Once you have detected 3-5 boats then save up and use the Carriers Red attack which will always get you a better deal on Red shots, Try to never use the single Red attacks on guessing where a boat is. Also use common sense one when to change direction of the Red lines if there is a boat at the top for example and is ending the Red lines early.

    Using this approach I completed each level (except level 24) in 1-2 tries, usually 1. The early 20s are the only difficult levels, levels 25-30 are the same difficulty of 1-20.

    Level 24:
    For this level you are going to need to get lucky, getting half the resources of the other team makes it very difficult, my only advice is that if the Carrier or Sub gets taken out early then just restart, you are going to need their attacks, and also try to use the Carriers Red attack as soon as you know about a couple of ships as resources are the main issue. For me it took about 6 goes but as I said, a lot of luck involved.

    I hope this helps, If any of this is unclear, please say in the comments and I will try to explain better.

    Good luck!

    TheIVIuffinLevel 7 is ludicrous. Limited resources and even following the guide I've lost 17 times in a row. I can't even deploy what the guide says to use without bypassing my turn 3 times.

    Hi All,

    not really a guide, just a heads up to others, in case they run into the same issue:

    I have finished my last 3 campaign mission today, received the final congratulation screen and the achievement stayed at 92% completion rate. I have even replayed the last training scenario, nothing. Then later today noticed, that the achievement have popped an hour later, when the game wasnt even on...

    So dont get scared if the same happens.

    Lets add some guide related parts as well, not that the game needs it... There are 8 training and 30 campaign scenarios, unlocking one after other with completing the previous ones. Some in the early 20's can be a bit more difficult, but dont get scared, the last 2-3 will be very easy with plenty of resources and a weak AI. Place your ships always to the 4 side rows / columns, use airplane carriers / torpedoes to recon, mines / carriers / single shots to destroy afterwards and you will win 90% of time. Placement to the sides is the key, cant remember losing a single battle since I started to do it.

    If that includes mission 24 then I don't believe you.

    I have the same problem as most others here on mission 24. AI destroys 2-3 ships in the first 2-3 rounds. I have tried every strat multiple times with the same (sad) result. I don't think this game will be a completion for me :(

    Guile132Lol, yeah I definitely don't believe that you never lost on mission 24.

    MizerisMoneyI got lucky and beat mission 24 on my 2nd try. Just keep your ships to the left and right sides, and i put my patrol boat in the bottom middle. Try to save as much resources as you can, and use the line attacks. Dont guess with your missiles. Only use them if you are 100% sure of a hit. Keep in mind what ships the cpu has remaining and plan your shots strategically so you cover the most amount of grid.
