V-Wings were fun. Other than that - nothing really special.

This was an entertaining battle. It's fun to fly the V-Wing as well. Nicely balanced craft. When flying this battle, make sure you have the latest EHSP and latest V-Wing patch installed. I flew first with EHSP 2.0 and the craft appeared in the tech library, but was swapped with a T/A during the battles.

This is a good remake of an old tie battle by FA mBinder, a fun set of missions to fly as well;p.

Story Line
----------

[View Plotline.txt for the debriefings and mission hints.]

Mission 1: 
After a major power surge, many of the ISDII Relentless' critical systems have gone offline. This 
places the ISDII Relentless in a very bad position so the M/FRG Fogger is on its way to repair it. 
You are to protect both the ISDII Relentless and the M/FRG Fogger during this operation.
In other news, we have gained information that Rebels have made an advanced, spacegoing, version of 
their V-Wing airspeeders. Be on the lookout for any of these.

Mission 2: 
As Intel had suspected, the new V-Wing version was used in the assault on the ISDII Relentless. This 
new craft looks just like the old V-Wing, and our scanners will pick it up as such. They have new 
"V-class" engines, and are also shielded. Be alerted!
The Science Office would very much like to take a closer look at these new craft, so you are to scout 
the sector for any rebel V-wings, and if any are encountered, to capture them. Especially the 
Infiltrator Wing could do very well using them.


Mission 3: 
Tracing the hyperspace lines of the Rebels in the previous mission, we think we have located the source
of the recent rebel incursions: A Rebel Dreadnaught hiding in a small asteroid field near by. This 
Dreadnaught Master and its two escorting Carrack Cruisers from flightgroup Disser must be destroyed.
Using standard V-Wings, the Science Office has been able to whip up some of these new V-Wings and this 
assault would be a good chance to  check them out. In case these protypes fail in some way we have M
issile Boats and TIE Advanced  flying along.


Mission 4:
The Science Office research on the V-Wings is complete. While still not particulary well armed, it is 
quite fast and well protected. However the shield generator and hyperdrive are both quite complicated 
and expensive. We suspect that the production version will lack these features.
It also appears that they have an extremely long range hyperdrive, and we have decided to make good 
use of this unexpected ability. Using this special hyperdrive, you will attack a rebel training 
platform deep inside New Republic space, and completely destroy it.

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

Other Information
-----------------
When I was doing Project Shield part of the work was removing unneeded and/or outdated patches,
but TIE-TC#39 came with one I had never seen before: the V-Wing. As the battle was released in 1996,
that made it the earliest reference to this craft ever. However, the patch had been disabled
by an earlier TAC project (Probably because it only worked on the TIECD version and had only very 
limited changes to the craft it replaced) so I removed it from the battle and stored it for future 
reference.

A year later I completed the V-Wing OPT (and cockpits) and rebuilt the patch for both TIECD and TIE95
using the original stats by Micck Emrys (almost, i removed the standard shields and hyperdrive.) so 
I wanted to re-enable the patch in TIE-TC#39 (by just changing the craft type really.)

It was then that I actually first laid eyes on the battle - and was shocked to see how much had changed
in missioncreation since 1996: It had virtually no radiomessages, waypoints or briefings and even still 
included parts of text from the original TIE Fighter mission it was based upon.

At this point I asked permission from the Tactical Office to upgrade the battle completely to
current standards while re-adding the patch. Because I was working on it anyway I decided I may
as well port it to XvT while I was at it. :)

This conversion was made using more then just "tie2xvt", about every aspect except the
actual texts was changed to get better results in XvT - however great care was taken to
retain the same atmosphere as the TIE version had.
