Battle Reviews

LCM Vanguard88



One of the best battles out there for sure. Wildly entertaining, not too challenging even on hard and it all comes together very nicely in the end. Avoid the capital ships as much as you can due to the squishiness of the fighters and you will have a great time.

Do you fancy a battle where you fly undercover disguised as a pirate?. This is the one, then. The battle is very well written and the story behind it was great. The missions themselves were very challenging since you will be in R41s or Z95s, the lowest scum in the Galaxy. You will feel like a space buccaneer while based on the STRKC Capone. A note of mention for final battle. It was very realistic, and you will find yourself in the middle of a feud between Rebels and Pirates, and you'd probably wait for them to kill each other, or even not engaging at all unless attacked. Loved this rare gem of a battle. Good job, Dempsey.

EH Space is plagued by many a pirate band. Most of the time, they stay clear of our military
installations though, and focus on the civilian groups. As long as they do, we don't seek out
the confrontation. We simply don't have the equipment and personnel to effectively destroy 
them all.

GN Angel, Wing Commander of the ISD-II Challenge has come up with a plan though to get rid
of one of the pirate groups that according to him will soon resort to directly attacking our
installations and bases. The Flight Office has denied the request made by him and the Challenge
Commodore for a full scale attack, and so he has had to find other ways. And a very daring 
plan it is indeed. Unwillingly, we will employ the New Republic in our task. We will have them 
do our dirty work for us!
