Battle Reviews

Story behind it is worth playing it. Fly a variety of rebel fighters since you get infiltrated into a rogue organization even fly an ATR, though it had the real turbolasers it would really rock!. The final missions are well balanced and show again that a capable T/D can wipe out almost an entire fleet, given the pilot has the patience and perseverance. The only hard mission is the ATR related one, but overall a fun battle worth flying.

I like the idea behind this battle. In it, you get to infiltrate enemy forces and have the opportunity to fly non-traditional craft (X-wing, A-wing, and ATR). This dynamic is somewhat unique and kept things interesting. The mission objectives are straightforward once you wrap your head around the seemingly conflicting objectives resulting from being a plant. For me, small things kept this from reaching a higher score. While the plot was creative, some elements in the missions didn’t make the most sense (e.g., trading a collection of CRVs for a relatively small win against the Wilken forces). Some small tweaks could have really improved the plotline. There were also a couple of small (documented) bugs, most notably the Cargo Facility 2 hitbox issue. Strictly speaking, this is a problem with the patch and not the mission/battle, but the hitbox/disappearing box made the mission clunkier than it needed to be. Overall, worth a fly.

Battle Bug Reports

FA Conker Blackwood


attempting to launch this battle with EHBL results in an error message 'error reading the source mission' followed by another error 'no missions copied'

HA Anahorn Dempsey


in M5 the msg "all enemy fighters destroyed" appears mistimed. I couldn't enter ISD hangarbay.

The CF/2 patch doesn't work very well, with torpedoes going through most of the craft. Also, pressing Fast Forward in mission 3's briefing caused a crash. I use TIE95 on an XP machine.

You are inserted into the fleet of Warlord Wilken in an attempt to bring him down and destroy 
his forces. Fly missions for Wilken while at the same time making sure he will lose the battle.

Known issues:
* During several playtests, it turned out that depending on where your torpedoes or lasers hit the 
  Cargo Facility, they will fly straight through and not impact. Also, when close to it, from time to 
  time it disappears.
* In the last missions, it seems to be not possible to get a warhead lock onto the ISD's warhead 
  launcher. Dumb fire at close range without the ISD targeted.
