    COL Highlander



    A fairly fun battle even though the missions were over fairly fast, gotta admit I'm not a huge fan of flying missle boats but overall it was very enjoyable

    LC Gytheran



    I flew this as part of Raise the Flag competition 2021. Overall, the battle seemed straightforward with no major hang-ups. There is not much to say about it. It was fun but the battle did not contain any elements that makes it stand out from nearly every other battle you have ever flown.

    MAJ TheBlackxRanger



    pretty good missions, easy and quick. i used unlimited waves to play this one and had a good time. there was a little resistance fighting the giant ships on my own but i was able to manage it eventually

    MAJ Jaxx Nassin



    The story is fairly straight forward, and having the option to choose your role in the battles is a nice way to break up what could be an otherwise all too familiar 'kill all starfighters' type of battle. One mission in particular, you have to stay on your toes to keep the Vanguard from getting blown up

    CPT Xye



    Not good, not bad, just middle of the road pew pew missions. In the mission where you have to destroy the shuttle Escape, make sure you don't destroy the cruiser before it has a chance to launch or the mission will fail.

    Just a run of the mill mission set. Didn't give me too much trouble once I figured out that I needed the EH ship patch for it. Be sure to download it because it doesn't say it anywhere specific from what I could gather.

    I played on Easy. If you're just going after the main objectives, this battle is incredibly quick and simple. The AI is so overpowered in a lot of the missions that half your work is done for you before you even know it. I don't have much else to say, blink and you'll miss this one.

    A pleasure to get to fly the MIS in this battle, although as mentioned by a few I'm unsure why the loads were reduced and there was some strange default loadouts using space bombs when attacking fighters and ATR's which made little to no sense! Generally speaking though a reasonable battle to play.

    The only good thing about this battle is getting the chance to fly the Missile Boat. If you enjoy shooting a barrage of missiles then this battle is for you (and sometimes I do). Not sure why the missile loads were halved btw, it's not as if you will run out of missiles on this particular one as you got 'teammates' to jump into.

    COL Phalk Sturm



    A decent, easy and straightforward battle. If you like the MIS then this is your thing. All 4 missions unfold in a variety of roles for the Überbomber, and yes, you have beams on the fighter, finally. Alternatively, player can choose some T/D or T/A in some missions, but this could spoil the pleasure that is to fly and grind everybody with your fuming war tubes. Good to fly.

    LC randyrumrnr



    The missions were fun and enjoyable. While the grammar in the briefings and the story line were a bit..odd, I still recommend flying!

    LC SkyShadow



    A simple 4 mission battle based around the plot of assassinating a Rebel Admiral and then making the treacherous journey back to the ISD Vanguard. The description text and mission briefings are well laid out and advance the plot well.
    I found the missions all to be very frustrating with the victory conditions put at the absolute limit of being achievable. Mission 1 in particular was bad and I frequently found the shuttle escaping with ease with my ship being at least 12km away.
    The difficulty does not seemed balanced and I was frequently alternating between Medium and Hard to complete this battle.

    COL TK-7764



    I thought this mission was alright. And a way around the "stupid AI of the M/B" (which isn't this mission creators fault or anything) is to fly as the M/B!

    CM TK-9780



    An ok set missions, only let down by the stupid way the AI controls the 'Missile-Boats'.

    Mission 4: X-Wing Mas and A-Wing Eagle leave the Rebel Escort Carrier too quickly, causing them to clip through it briefly and arrive ~6km from the carrier's initial point.
