Battle Reviews

CPT Colo Delste



As a Tempest pilot, I thought this would be a no-brainer to fly. Quick and easy FCHG point, but High Score hunting is a real challenge here. Solid, no frills "kill a Rebel FRG" type mission. Even the apparent curve ball of being in unshielded craft didn't make it difficult to complete.

AD Phoenix Berkana



Another free that's probably a bit on the easy side, with the only goal being to kill off a frigate using two flights of torpedo armed TIE Bombers. The only caveat being can you do it with the first wave or do you need the second?




I can't really give it anything less than a two, because it's playable, it doesn't have you flying rebel crafts, and you get to enjoy the Bomber a little. Not much fun here, but if you need some quick tournament points, or would just like to unwind with an easy battle, this is an excellent pick.

One Frigate, lots of bombers and rockets. We blew this Frigate to all kinds of small pieces. That's all there is to this mission and it is fast as hell. Reading this literally takes longer than playing it. Easy four points for RTF.

CPT Solohan50



I played on Easy. There's not much to this level in the main objectives. You have to kill a Frigate and you have unlimited torpedoes and an ISD that's attacking it. This mission ended extremely quickly. Maybe there's more if you look at secondary objectives?

COL Genie



The prospect of flying in a TIE bomber always intrigues me. Unfortunately, this one falls flat on its face. Do it for completion points.

COL Phalk Sturm



Fast and furious. Fly an unshielded T/B against some FRG. Being myself from Tempest and flying a Spectre Advance Missile Boat, makes me look at those unshielded flying ball bombs of T/Bs with a tear of nostalgia. Worth a try, for us nostalgics.

COL Rau Aznable



Another classic with unshielded fighters, just like in the old days. A fair fight between a platform and a frigate, both with appropriate fighters.

Name: Tempest Tango
Creator: CMDR/COL Locke Setzer/Tempest/Wing X/ISD Challenge
Game Platform: XvT

Plot: Tempest Squadron has been given the task of defending a small platform on the corner 
of EH space from any and all forces that come into the area. Sounds easy, right? 
Not quite. EH Transportation has sent the fighters of Tempest Squadron to the wrong 
platform! So Tempest Squadron will have to use two classic fighters, the TIE Interceptor 
and the TIE Bomber, to prevent the Rebels from gaining a hold on EH space!

Installation Instructions:

1] Double click the .EHM file, the EH Battle Launcher will install the battle.
2] Check the Misc folder in your BoP one for additional material like patches, sounds etc.
3] Press the X-wing Vs. TIE Fighter button to start XvT and fly the battle.
