Battle Reviews

Not doable on hard and barely passable on medium. You are outnumbered 7 to 1, all the Y-Wings have advanced torpedoes (8 of them attack your frigate and each wave spawns in warhead range of it, meaning you have to pick them off right away. You cannot get too close to the base or it will melt you, and the T/A will destroy the disabled ones) and you only get one craft wave.

Another good mission for the War Mule, aka the GUN. Simple and quick, you take on a R&D asteroid and some cruisers docked nearby. The mission itself is perfectly crafted, with some opposition being launched at your fragile FRG command ship, so it has some dogfighting and a lot of assaulting in the venerable Gunboat. Worth a try and an honest work's FCHG point.

A barely enjoyable, uninspired destroy mission.
