Once I killed them, the game didn't crash. Also, the infantry guys can be in odd places. You know they're around when you hear your sensors beep, but no red dots are showing. Hope this helps.

To each powered-down mech are two infantry guys allocated as pilots.
The first wave is hidden in buildings relatively close to the mech. The second wave is the group of reserve pilots. Both waves are triggered at the same time (alarm).
This is why your first objective should be to eliminate the reserve pilots.
They run all over the map and some might get stuck in the terrain. The game does not crash if the pilots allocated to a mech are dead because it simply does not power up. The pilots can create trouble when the mech they are supposed to run towards is destroyed. This is what I fixed with the latest updates. :wistle

Infantry type units do not show on the radar as dots.

Igot thru this one except for Objective #1. It says I've destroyed all enemy units, but I can't seem to find anymore pilots anywhere on the map. I've walked mechs over every inch,can't seem to locate them but the objective still shows incomplete.

This looks to be where I'm tripped up currently. I have only just started the mission, but all of the reservist mechs have been take out, and I see no more pilots running around. I decided just to restart the mission and hope for better luck the second time around. We'll see....

hmm, I think I pushed the panic button too soon last time. I retried the mission and things happened the exact same way, so I decided to wait it out and give ole Wolfman the benefit of the doubt.

Well, sure enough, when I went to the south of the map where there are several resource buildings guarded by Panthers, a lone infantry unit appeared. Upon his death I received completion of the "Eliminate Reservist Pilots" objective. So far I'm bug free and crash free on this mission.

ok i know it crashes no matter what i tried but here is a bit of strategy that seemed to work and it did not crash.
take out the sensor control with air strike it make take 1 or 2 hits but it will take the whole network, and then approach from sout east corner bottom where 2 repair bays are at after that its just matter of mop up.

sorry i forgot to add this while you are at it taking out the control tower take out the barracks too
i tried replaying the miss with just taken out control tower and the game crashed but if you take the barracks too it seems ok.
