Battle Reviews

Excellent battle. Solid, well developed and better laid out. Outstanding briefings and maps, the plotline is good and there will be dozens of different combinations for the player to choose from. You can literally fly every squadron in the mighty Wing X. Also, missions would range from classic dogfighting, to kidnapping and capship bombing. A true classic.

Good battle, which can be rather hard at times. Although still a battle that any XvT combat jockey will utterly enjoy *

Good and challenging battle, thats all you need to know :o)

Excellent battle overall, one of the best I've played in a while, challenging!

I really liked mission two ;) Its a neet battle to say the least. Good solid creation aswell as a decent plotline.

Battle Bug Reports

CM Vanguard88


Should add that the bug above is for mission 4

CM Vanguard88


If the primary target is disabled too quickly shuttle monsoon will crash into the ISD Challenge and die when it goes to enter its hangar, failing the mission. The Tie defenders that disable the E/S patrol for craft to attack but do not attack anything except the Assault transports that attack the Challenge.

Part two of a three part series about Wing VIII, Wing X and Wing XII taking on a large
New Republic Spine Security Force campaign. 

Note that this battle is supposed to be a challenge:
It may be hard for some pilots. Check the plotline.txt (in /Misc) for hints if you need them.

Story Line

Mission 1: 
Interrogation of the crew of the FRG Aurelius captured by Wing VIII has revealed that the 
Flight Officer of the New Republic Spine Security Force, VA Suleima, has taken control of 
the operation against the EH personally. 
VA Suleima is one of the few Calamari that has a military background on Calamari itself, 
first being a part of that planet's defense force. She is highly experienced in the acts 
of war and commanded her own, smaller, fleet not long ago.
Our own Tactical Officer has decided upon a strategy that should prevent the NR operation 
from reaching the EH territories at all. The plan is to keep the resources the rebels need 
for their campaign from ever reaching them; If we destroy enough of her crucial supplies 
then VA Suleima will not be able to actually attack us.

Mission 2: 
Our Tactical Officer has decided that we can easily disrupt Spine Security Force operations 
even more by disabling their Communications Systems. 
Usually such systems depend on large amounts of spread out duplicate connections so as to 
make it so that the destruction of a single satellite does not take out the entire net. But 
the totalitarian leaders of the NR-SSF however want to be able to control all communications
within their fleet and have made a critical error in their designs to do so.
Tornado Squadron is going to take the entire NR-SSF network out in a single hit: The main 
communications array near the Bav System. This should severely disrupt the Rebel operation 
that apparently is being set up against us.
To give Tornado a better chance at taking out the array, Thunder Squadron will distract any 
Rebel forces in the area by trying to pass through a convoy with "Crucial" supplies.

Mission 3: 
With the Spine Security Force's communications disabled we have the chance to raid their 
outposts without those being able to call in for help. They will probably be able to 
reroute their communications quickly but in that period we want to do as much damage to 
their operations as possible.
A New Republic Supply Base has been on our eviction list for quite a while. These bases 
resupply and deploy the Spine Security force all along the Corellian Trade Spine and can 
usually depend on fast response back ups.
Typhoon and Cyclone Squadrons are ordered to take out this particular base and any freighter
craft around it. Intel has it that VA Suleima is on her way to this particular base however,
so be quick about it.

Mission 4:
Our last few actions must have already inflicted serious damage on NR-SSF operations, but 
the arrival of VA Suleima at the scene of the New Republic Supply Base Typhoon and Cyclone 
destroyed can perhaps lead to the final blow: We will attempt to kidnap her. Taking their 
Flight Officer will surely disrupt their operations against the Emperor's Hammer beyond 
For this mission we have reordered several of our flights in two temporary squadrons: One 
of TIE Defenders and one of Missile Boats. This will look like a standard Imperial attack 
strategy, where the T/Ds escort the MIS in a destructive strike on capital ships... This 
might prompt top staff in those capital ships to try to escape.
At that point the real set up of the mission will become clear: The MIS will actually be 
escorting the T/Ds on a mission to disable any escaping shuttles and transports.

Mission 5:
Our plan did not work; VA Suleima had apparently suspected something and had a decoy double 
take her place. However we were able to capture several of her top ranking officers. After 
some persuasion they affirmed our own assessment: We have disrupted their operation against 
us considerably and they are having problems replacing their losses.
We suffered some losses ourselves as well however, and those have been costly enough. 
Luckily, the Science Officer has been able to get us a whole new squadron of TIE Defenders 
to replace these losses. They will be delivered to the Challenge by the ESC Suppresser at a 
rendezvous point not far from here.
Thunder and Tempest Squadron will be on patrol during the transfer. We have strayed quite 
far from our home bases, so trouble can probably be expected.

You need XvT (or at least all the ships involved there) AND the EH Ship Patch for XvT. 
To fly as a team all players need the same version, make sure you all have the 
update by lucasarts installed.
