There is no difficulty trophies in the game so you can play on the lowest setting. If you have any experience with RTS games, this will be very easy for you. Even with no experience, you should still get through this game with relative ease. There are only 2 trophies you need to concentrate on because the rest will come with time and that is 10 Heroic Victories and finishing the last campaign with no deaths.
Everything should easily be done in 1 playthrough. I also listed my stats for Heroic Victories to give you an idea on who I used and how fast and accurately I finished. Remember, you might be able to do worse than my stats.
Here is a list of my army. Snipers and Bazookas should be your priority early on since they are extremely useful. Getting the Anti-Tank and Artillery should be your next goal.
1 Destroyer Tank (Has Anti-Tank Skill to fuck up other tanks)
2 Commandos ***
1 Medic ( Not necessary but nice to have when you have the 10 Heroic Victories and speed is not an issue)
*** - Only needed for the 15 kills trophy. Once you get it you can reload a save and get your 40000 prestige back if you desire.
Update - Evilspacecow suggested I use the Artillery on the stacking versions and WOW it is awesome. This think is deadly and can take out a ton of troops in one shot. It costs 20 fuel though, so it can only be used on the 30 fuel missions.
I discovered that you can actually "cheat the system" by using the red reticule to find tanks on the map that haven't spawned yet into your field of view. If you just hover around the area where you think a tank may spawn (typically the dirt roads you see on the map), you'll notice that the red reticule separates from the target on the ground, effectively showing an invisible tank that hasn't spawned yet. One direct shot from the artillery on that spot and your tank problems are gone before they even started.
I will list the skills in the order I believe you should get them. Tactical is extremely important to give your tanks and snipers more shots per turn while logistics helps them carry more ammo so they do not run out.
If you want you can swap 2 or 3 or work on both at the same time.
1) Tactical - Increases number of shots. Maxed out will give your Snipers 2 Shots
2) Logistics - Increases amount of ammo your troops have
3) Offensive - Increases your damage
4) Defensive - Increases your health
5) Charisma - Prestige Per Mission
6) Experience - Better starting experience for new recruits
If you fail at reaching Heroic Victory you can replay missions. When you get back to the main screen, there will be an option to load with . When you press it you can go back and replay any previous missions. Say you are on Mission 5 and you want to replay Mission 4. You hit Load and select mission 4 and the game will assume what you did missions 1-3 and let you replay 4.
BE WARNED: Do not go back farther than you need because your game resets to that point in time. So if you are on mission 9 and you replay mission 2, you will lose all your progress from 2-8.
