That last mission, with the rebel fleet silhouetted against that giant red-orange star, was simply gorgeous. It's a moment that will stay with me.

COL Phalk Sturm



Well, if you don't like the T/B, then steer away from this one. If you do, you won't be disappointed. A variety of roles for the venerable bomber, from dogfighting to carpet bombing in the TIE Dragon, this battle was very much a lot of easy fun.

LC Gen Es'mith



Although it is very difficult to wield, the TIE Dragon does indeed make up for suffering with the TIE Bomber. I enjoyed this battle immensely..basically the Swansong of the TIE Bomber.

CPT Ibram Gaunt



A 5 from me, Because it's all about the Bomber! But yeah, the T/Dr does stink against fighters... Still, a jolly good battle.

LT Stryker



I liked it, though the T/Dr is really hard to kill fighters with...

GN Abel Malik



This is a decent battle with a good storyline/plotline- definately worth the time to fly.

COL Rei Ayanami



Though not the most difficult battle I have played, I thouroghly enjoyed it. I was most...delighted with the mission debriefings. It made the battle more of an educational experience than anything else for me.

Patches: Battle requires the TIE Dragon patch but this is not stated on the compendium.

Mission 1: Primary goal has a typo, it should state 'Rebel assault repelled' when completed.

Mission 4: First wave of X-Wing Blue leaves the area before the battle at the Rebel station begins. GUN Zlatan's third order is set as attacking friendly craft.
