    I don't want to go too hard on this battle because I played on easy and I'm confident it would be a lot more difficult if played on hard. The mission briefing is very clear, it's nicely laid out and really puts you in-universe, which is very nice, it's very professional which you don't get a lot from earlier free battles. As for mechanics, the flight briefing makes it seem like you're in for a tough fight, and again I'm sure you are outside of easy, but if you do play on easy expect to get what you're asking for. Not bad.

    A bit on the too easy side. Fly it for completion points or to enjoy the T/D Maybe this can be an interesting challenge for a high score chase though.

    Fast and furious, the mission involves some gritty dogfighting and also capship bombing, depending on which craft you happen to choose. T/A or T/D. Whatever the choice, the mission gives a bunch of few good minutes and it's worth a try, besides the easy point of FCHG

    Solid mission to practice your dogfighting. Unfortunately, the mission is a tad too easy on Medium. Quick FCHG point.

    AUTHOR'S NOTE: 
    This battle is intended to be easy on easy level, but it can be hell on hard. So don't cry and become a better player. Remember. XvT increases AI of all ships by 2 on hard, so it will not be easy. I'm not even sure if it's possible to complete all missions on hard. Well, I'm just kidding but don't try hard if you are rookie.
    
    Also, in this mission you will face full wing of fighters, so it won't be a short one (assuming you fly on hard level).
