** In the mission immediately after the above, two of the tiles are removed off the board to create an artificial chokepoint so you cannot outmaneuver the tanks, and so Sergeant Garheim can teach you about retreating.

** In the mission immediately after the above, two three of the tiles are removed off the board to create an artificial chokepoint so you cannot outmaneuver the tanks, and so Sergeant Garheim can teach you about retreating.


** In the first attack on central command, you lose three of your mercenaries and are forced to abort. Chances are you attacked the bottom right camp, three tanks rolled up to you, you returned fire, and [[CurbstompBattle promptly get steamrolled by the three tanks]]. If you successfully retreat/evade the from the tanks, the tanks will, in complete defiance of what the AI usually does (that is to say look around in place for a bit before returning to their original positions), the tanks stay right next to the camp, so if you attack it at all, you will get caught in the tanks' line of fire. The other camp and central command have tanks directly next to them already, so you can't attack those either. You have no mercenary with 'Tank Buster' nor 'Tank Sniper', and you don't have any anti tank rockets, so you can't destroy the tanks. And most egregiously of all, if you wisely decide to sit in a single spot and let the time limit run out, it'll loop back to 2:00:00 once the time limit reaches 1:00:00, so there's no way out of the mission except by suffering casualties.

Added DiffLines:

* ButThouMust: The tutorial war is evidently scripted to teach the player the mechanics of the game, but if you play the tutorial a second time you'll realise just how heavily the game is railroading you.

* DevelopersForesight: If an operative dies in combat, you don't have enough operatives to form at least one five-man fireteam, AND you blew all your money so you can't afford any more mercs, your secretary will point out you don't have enough money to hire more mercs, [[WhatTheHellHero bemusedly ask you what you're doing]], and then she'll tell you that you she's found a few mercs who are willing to work pro bono, meaning that the hire screen will offer you exactly enough $0 mercs to form a single five-man fireteam.
