Definitely not the best of the Cyclone saga. This is one was somehow repetitive and a bit tedious. Mission objectives become confusing at times, especially in last mission, and some missions have long waiting times and unrealistic depictions such as a ISD tugging another ISD. Play this battle only if you want to finish the Cyclone saga, otherwise there is much else out there to play before this.

Grrr. I personally was horrified by this battle. Plotline seemed sketchy at best and the missions' goals were virtually unknown to the pilots. Mission 4 in particular... after wasting 45 minutes on *that* gem, I figured out I needed to let myself get killed or hyper out in all 4 of my craft. Wonderful planning. I love it. The rest... are just as mysterious to the pilot, with very little in the briefings to explain the missions' objectives.

Battle requires EHSP-XvT but this is not mentioned on the compendium.

Mission 1: CRVs Royal Guard attack each other after the Rebel opposition is eliminated.

Mission 3: IW A-Wings attack IW X-Wings.

Mission 4: Objectives (eg GUN Cyclone must come and go, ISD Colossus must arrive) are misleading - the actual goal is to allow yourself to be disabled and captured.
