    Nice battle. The plotline starts a bit slowly but intensifies as soon as you are deployed. The missions are challenging yet very much completable, and it will see a good bunch of different roles, protection, capture operations and the usual dogfighting. Worth a try for some straightforward campaign, action-packed and with a nice story behind it.

    I thought this mission was well designed. The ship choices made sense, the storyline was obvious, and it was a decent balance of dogfighting, defending, and attacking capitals. Overall, a solid mission.

    The battle was very straighforward and enjoyable, and Mission 3 was the first DB mission I can remember that actually used bombers and warheads on a mission to take out enemy cap ships. That was all forgotten in the last mission, unfortunately, when you have to take out an asteroid base in a TIE/IN without warheads.

    Great battle from start to finish.

    GN Anahorn Dempsey


    M1: ATR Vengeance 2 doesn't fly home (looking for craft to board). M2: the PLT gets disabled again after its captured'. M3: CUV Mentor attempts to dock with a hostile T/I. M4: while you launch from the VSD (your command ship) you can not enter its hangar, you must return to the STRKC Dark Blood

    COL Rau Aznable


    If you play the first mission on Hard, there's a group of Gunboats at the start of the mission that goes after the friendly Strike Cruiser and the rest of the convoy. If you destroy any of them, you get the "you have destroyed a friendly craft" warning and lose points.
