After every battle, you are given a rating such as silver, gold, platnium. Does this affect anything in game?

I believe the Platinum medals unlock boss type enemies (like the big Heidong 3, in Nanjing with 40 medals) on the Real Battle setting for most simulators. Not sure about the others. Platinums are easy to get. –  Krazer Dec 13 '12 at 21:12
    
@krazer is there any way of going back to earn some or am I SOL if I missed any –  z ' Dec 13 '12 at 22:15
    
It's been a while since I picked this game up. I remember that if you save the game as soon as you start a battle, you can reload and try again if you don't get the desired results (and skip the cut scenes). I think you can replay again in New Game+ while retaining you battle skills. I don't think you can go back and select specific battle. –  Krazer Dec 14 '12 at 0:06

At a certain point in the storyline, when you get at least 30 (I don't remember exactly) platinum medals, you get access to a secret Wanzer. However, that Wanzer is also accessible by other means. So basically platinum medals serve no purpose other than giving you bragging rights.
