    This battle has a nicely paced little story, and I really enjoyed it even if the mechanics didn't quite live up to the hype. You get to fly a Phantom! What else can you want really? The banter between the Rebel pilots at the beginning is great - and even though I haven't flown any missions in this series, and I don't know any of these names, I could tell the TIE pilots all had different personalities and were likeable. This is rare for any battle, so for one it took me minutes to complete (on easy) I would say it's a fun one to try for anyone.


    Pretty cool mission where you get to play with using Psychological Warfare, which is my forte, and fly the TIE Phantom. At first you don't really have to do much, you just gotta sneak around and take out the containers, but once you do they send the fighters after you. I didn't realize how big my team was because we made short work of those guys and the mission was over. Fun idea and good execution.

    I played on Easy. This mission was more interesting than a lot that I've played here. It was also cool to play as a TIE Phantom. That said, the mission is very easy. Just kill a bunch of freighter-type ships and you're done.

    Enjoyable stealth strike mission. Part of Ender's bag of goods. This one was a hit. May return to attempt it on hard. Nice use also of the craft. WOuld have liked to see actual objects pop out of each craft you destroyed to match the expectation of the briefing as a form of 'fireworks' display. :)

    Quick and simple. This is a T/Ph mission to inspect and eliminate a convoy consisting of CNVYRs, CARGs and E/Ss. Beware of the missile-shooting platforms. Fast and fun to fly.

    Installation 
    ------------
    The Imperial.lst and Mission.lst replace your original files, so back those up!
    - Download the TIE Phantom patch for XvT from the SCO site 
    	(currently: http://sco.minos.net)
    - Install the TIE Phantom patch for XvT according to its own instructions.
    1] Double click the .EHM file, the EH Battle Launcher will install the battle.
    2] Check the Misc folder in your XvT one for additional material like patches, sounds etc.
    3] Press the X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter button to start XvT and fly the battle.
    - Create a new pilot for the mission based on your name or PIN and the mission number. 
    For example, SL Stele playing Free Mission 80 would make a new pilot file named "StelFM80." 
    or a Pilot with PIN 2883 playing Free Mission 69 would make a new pilot file named "2883fm69" 
    - Begin flying the first training mission.
    
    Description
    -----------
    This mission is part of a series of free missions about each of the squadrons in the ASF doing 
    missions following their squadron objective in their assigned craft. Each mission tries to give
    a feel and a bit of history of each of the Squadrons. All the storylines of the missions are
    interconnected and have the ASF Squadron join together against a common foe.
    
    Story Line
    ----------
    Asp Squadron, 86st TIE Corps Squadron, of Wing XIV is based upon the ISDII Intrepid and its 
    objective is Psychological Warfare. Psychological Warfare Squadrons create even more fear in 
    the hearts of Rebels. Making our enemies feel that absolutely NOWHERE is safe from the EH! 
    This squadron will give many sleepless nights to many a Rebel!
    
    Asp Squadron is currently in the capable hands of CM Chris Cox and earlier CMDRs were CPT Linoge, 
    CPT Erryc Lasitter, CM John Clark, LC Wil Striker (the current COM) CM Rekio Corsair, MAJ Astin, 
    MAJ Ace Armageddon and COL Plif. Asp is equipped with TIE Phantoms to make their objective easier.
    
    In this mission you will have to preform Asp Squadron's primary objective:  Psychological Warfare. 
    Asp will hit a weapons laboratory deep in New Republic Territory just before it receives an 
    inspection by its more moral Coruscant Authorities.
