Battle Reviews

This is a good one! Daring to use the T/F and in a proper manner! Nice little skirmish and the T/F forces you to be less gungho.


Nice mission about protecting your flotilla while flying in an unshielded T/F. A good choice is the Magpulse warhead that allows to incapacitate any of the rebel cruisers for some time. Worth a try and good for a quick, yet engaging, 1 point of FCHG coin.


A good take on a defend mission, with some entertaining dialogue.


Great Tie Fighter mission.


As usual Kate gives us a magnificent mission. I would have given it a 4 or a 3.5, but I LOVE TIE fighters as well. Except Kate hasn't caught on that its even cooler when the player has to die too...The inflight messages were pure gold, I got caught up with them so I failed the mission the first time I flew it, but its not difficult at all if you know how to fly a T/F.(for once Kate's difficulties were good ;P).

Plotline:

The ISD Challenge was recently ambushed and badly damaged by Rebel ships, along with the majority of her fighter
compliment.  The Challenge has to take on supplies and get repaired now, but the only fighters left to defend her
are the Challenge's rickety old TIE Fighters!  Vice Admiral Locke, being the cruel bastard that he is, dispatched Typhoon
in the TIEs as Rebel starfighters began their attack run..

____________
Hints:

# 1. Work with your wingmen to take out the Y-wings and x-wings.  The CRV Rain is in no real danger, but you are in your
little TIE Fighter.  When Rain 1 finishes docking, the CRL Renegade will arrive to try and cut off TRN Gust and SHU
Monsoon.  Use your Mag Pulse torps to good effect!  The Y-wings will also target the TRNs and SHUs, so ignore them at
your own peril.  If you are playing on Hard mode, watch out for enemy A-wings!  They are packing missiles and heading 
right for you!
