Currently mission 2 is flawed, having been swapped with that of XW-TC 6. BSFs for this battle will not be approved until this error is remedied. File remains available for members to compare to any backups so we may restore the battle without rewriting the affected mission.

Battle Reviews

Missions 1-3 were straightforward. Then you get to mission 4 and it throws you for a loop and it requires you to actually defend your wing mates or face losing the mission. I rate this battle a little higher than otherwise would have due to the increased difficulty with the final mission.

LCM Marek Ny`Irfa



That's the first battle in XW-TC series that puts you in something else than an X-Wing! You get to fly an A-Wing and B-Wing for one mission each, cheers! Sadly this battle can be counted only to have three missions as stated four since one of them is duped from previous battle (see bug report). Otherwise the missions seem quite various and enjoyable to fly. Would probably give it a 5 if not for the mission 2 duplicate. Still quite worth it!

It appears a mistake was made when preparing this battle. Mission 2 is identical to that of XW-TC 6 battle. It features you in an X-Wing of Avenger squadron while this battle's plot is about Intruder.

X-Wing CD Installation: 
1. Download and install XCD from the SCO Site (http://sco.minos.net), files archive, the 
  editors section. (6k.) This will let you run custom missions. There is a full guide 
  available at the SCO site as well. 
2. Put the *.BRF and *.XWI files in your new "C:\Mission" folder and use XCD to start 
  X-Wing CD. Create a new pilot based on your pin and the battle's type and name. For 
  example: 2883tc01.plt if I were flying the first XW-TC battle. 
3. Fly the first 5 "Historical Combat" missions for the "X-Wing". 
X-Wing 95/Disk Installation: 
1. Run full install of the game so the mission files will be on your hard drive. The game 
  will take its mission information by preference from the hard disk, but might still give 
  a warning. In that case - Ignore. 
2. Locate your X-W Directory and open the folder labeled "Mission", or "Classic" in X-W95. 
  Copy the *.xwi, *.brf files of this custom battle into it. 
3. Create a new pilot based on your pin and the battle's type and name. For example: 
  2883tc01.plt if I were flying the first XW-TC battle. 
3. Fly the first 4 "Historical Combat" missions for the "X-Wing". 

1. You need X-W CD or '95, as far as i know no other patches are needed. I cannot assure 
  it will run on X-W disk as it might exceed its maximum craft amounts. You'd need the 
  B-Wing and Imperial Pursuit add-ons to play.

This battle is part of a series of free missions and now battles 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. In timeline this battle takes place just after the free missions.

Part 1 of a Trilogy about Intruder Squadron.

Story Line

MISSION 1: "[Intruder Squadron], 116th TIE Corps Squadron, of Wing XIX is based upon the 
[ISDII Hammer] and its objective is [Infiltration]. Infiltration Squadrons often operate 
well behind enemy lines, specializing in sabotage, espionage and surprise attacks. To 
launch surprise attacks DEEP in enemy held territory, Infiltration Squadrons would be able 
to perform these missions in small flight groups so large amounts of EH assets are not 
We have obtained reliable data on the course of a lightly defended [NR-Spine Security Force 
Convoy] and will attack it at a hyperspace point near a small asteroid field.
Flight 1, in B-Wings, will take care of the convoy, while the X-Wings of Flight 2 and the 
A-Wings of Flight 3 provide cover. The moment you have finished off the convoy, get out of 
there before more forces arrive."

MISSION 2: "The convoy we hit at that asteroid field was loaded up with warheads - warheads
which weren't produced by the NR-SSF themselves. Since we know from what base the convoy 
launched we are going to investigate it a bit further.
Inspect the base components quickly, so we know what parts to capture, then take care of 
the base defences and fighters so the transports can come in safely.
The New Republic Spine Security Force has several of these cache bases spread out along 
the Corellian Trade Spine to be able to resupply their ships along the whole route. Because 
of continued ASF attacks they lately have been developping a shortage of warheads.
This is why a convoy full of them attracted the attention of our Commodore, who wants to 
find out where these warheads came from and then take care of the factory they come from."

MISSION 3: "Research on the captured warheads pointed once again to the Genko System, one 
of the largest producers of torpedoes in the Galaxy and a loose ally to anyone, including 
the Emperor's Hammer. 
Our spies at their core system were able to trace the hyperspace vectors of an outgoing 
convoy of warheads - on their way to the NR-Spine Security Force for another delivery.
According to our sources the Genkoans have only added a light escort of Wishbones (Y-Wings)
to their convoy of freighters and shuttles. This is strange, as the Genkoans are known to 
have a preference for Imperial designs - when available.
The rendezvous point is a small nav-sat near the Genko - NR-SSF Border. Deal with the 
convoy quickly before the Rebels arrive for their goods."

MISSION 4: "From the black boxes of the freighters we destroyed in our last mission we were 
able to determine their destination: A weapons transfer with the NR-SSF near the Minos 
Cluster. They didn't tell us where the convoy came from though.
Because we want to know where the warheads come from we will need to capture some of the 
crews of the ships involved in the transfer. Intruder Flight 1 will as such try to disable 
the freighters, after which the transports from Wrench Squadron will board and capture."
