We are always looking for additional performance data on the Empire of the Rising Sun's pilot-assisted combat robots, for the sake of our own research. The Imperial Commander Kenji, one of the men responsible for the Empire's new generation of fighting forces, is training a recently-awakened platoon of Steel Ronin here. This is a rare opportunity to observe these strange battle suits in action. Supposedly the men inside the Steel Ronin are violent Imperial war criminals, sentenced to a sort of solitary confinement...
- Mission briefing

Symphony of Steel is the fifth main mission in Commander's Challenge.


With four technologies taken, the Futuretech Commander is told to go to Japan for the second time round because Kenji has a Steel Ronin for training in this alley named in honor of shoguns who served under both Emperor Yoshiro and Crown Prince Tatsu. Unfortunately, Kenji has three bases and the Commander must set up his force of units for the perfect showdown. He manages to smash the bases and defeat Kenji in one single stroke. The Futuretech Commander has the Steel Ronin in his arsenal and returns to Amsterdam for another mission briefing with his FutureTech CPO, Kelly Weaver.

Strategies and Notes

  • Kenji will only send Archer Maidens and Steel Ronin.
  • Steel Ronin are vulnerable to aircraft, the earliest aircraft that can be unlocked is the Striker/Chopper VX, so expect to play as the Empire for this mission.
