Wing Commander III Playstation Japanese Version Manuals

I bought a box of Playstation Japanese version WC3. The CD box is broken but the manuals and CDs are nearly perfect.

Could I scan them and upload the pictures? Thanks!
There are two booklets (and a one-page advertisement). One is exploration guidance and the other is combat guidance.

Edit: OK! Since there are limited number of attachments in a single floor, the images of the booklets are posted in multiple floors.

Box Covers and CD prints:

(At the moment, only the CD1 print. )

Newtron Gun... (in Longbow description).

In contemporary Japanese texts I've seen a lot of borrowing from English and other 'western' languages, I'm always fascinated by the mix of Japanese and Latin characters. It could just be a typo... but it could also be that 'Newtron' is easier for a Japanese reader than Neutron.

It'd definitely be easier because it's two fairly well used English words put together (well tron isn't really a word but crops up combined with other words in lots of popculture stuff with mechs and robots). I could see Neutron getting pronounced as Ne(as in Ned)-oooh-tron

I see what you're referring to in the ship stats portion. Interestingly enough, it still seems to be Neutron in the game interface.
