EH Ship Patch for XvT

Battle Reviews

Decent mission. I liked it. Has a nice twist in it as well, forcing you to reconsider your 'plan'. It won't win any Oscars, but I recommend flying it.

Interesting mission about inspection and seizure of special CNVYR, and additional total destruction of a rebel fleet. The MIS is always the überbomber that can take almost on anything and everything if properly loaded. There is the chance to fly the Space Cadillac, aka the T/D to provide cover to the bombers. Either way, an entertaining and well done mission.

Great mission with very challenging combat. No bugs, no problems and a lot of thinking. Total overkill :D

While I thought the battle itself was good, I was really annoyed at all the troubles I had installing the EHSP patch. I had to uninstall and then do a full install of XvT and then a typical install of BoP before finally adding in the patch. It worked, but it took me several days to figure it out!

Shin, this is a awesome mission, extemly challenging & hard to accomplish on hard, easy like stealing cookies on easy & medium - tons of rebels to shoot for. This one actually needs a "6"

yeah yeah now this is how a convoy mission should be, hardly any waiting, fun & enjoyable with plenty of stuff to keep ya busy. This is also shinobi's first mission, looking forward to more

One word : wow. Not only was this a good FCHG point, but just a great mission, the kind I DON'T delete after I'm done with it. Great job, Shin!

You've done me proud, Shinobi. This is a fast paced and fun classic convoy mission. There's plenty to kill, and not a lot of waiting time. Kudos to you!

Cheth Squadron was ordered to intercept NR convoy. What was odd about a small convoy? It's covered by 2 CRS and lots of fighters! Cheth has to inspect the convoy and if they are carying something special, they are to make sure this cargo is seized.

This mission is a prologue to the battle I'm going to make
