Thius was a fun six missions, with a compelling storyline and in most missions, a choice of craft to fly. Unfortunately the parts where you are with Praetorian are lacklustre due to the Praetor patch not functioning, meaning you have to let BoP assign you to a PES to finish - a real shame that prevents a 5/5.

Outstanding battle. The animated briefings are by far the best I've been able to see in BoP. Additionally, the plotline is remarkable and impeccably well-written. Then, the missions. Flying the TIE Praetor is perhaps one of the best experiences for the regular TIE Corps pilot like any of us. We are not used to such fine and perfectly crafted space fighters. It even excels my all-time favourite, the TIE Defender. The red cockpit was nothing but appealing to the sinister vampiresque style of this übermonster of a fighter. Besides the superlative flying experience, the missions are very challenging, yet completable and solid. You will face intense dogfights, capital ship bombing while in an immersive and elegantly curated atmosphere. The in-flight messages, the pre-briefings. Everything was perfect in this one. A golden classic by my book

I think that this was a really great battle. It has alot more to it than solely flying; it has drama, history, as well as intrigue and the promise of more to come later on. Also, the TIE Preator was a joy to fly... even tho the entire screen is RED :P It is fast tho... :D

It’s very hard to give a dire report when someone has worked so hard. The flying element of the battle wasn’t to the designer’s normal very high standards. Missions 3,4, and 5 just seemed to combine together and I found after a while I was wondering if I was re-flying a mission that I’d just completed. The only saving grace of this battle was the rather good storyline.

A great FCHG battle by Kate with a decent plot and features the IW Black squadron, Praetorian, and the DB & rDB:p.

Mission 2 Tie Praetors prioritize destroying rebel craft despite the fact that there are many more other enemy craft nearby. Mission 5 and 6 the starfighter destroyed counter does not track properly and can go over 100%.

Mission 3: INT Orthanc withdrawing prompts mission failure, despite it being a mission objective.
