What could have been a good battle if you had more AI to work with on hard. You often find yourself heavily outnumbered and the enemy has too many waves of starfighters for you to deal with. Enemy capital ships all seem to have advanced missile launchers while yours never have them.
A long battle, yet a very good one. High technical skill in mission creation. The plotline is very good and so are the briefings. Although some missions were not balanced to perfection, it still remains a solid campaign where length is not an issue. Player will fly in a variety of roles, from bombing to protecting shipyards, and adding the chance to fly both the Space Cadillac as well as the Überbomber, alas, this last one with no beams. What is the problem with creators? A MIS without a beam tractor is like running in a coal-fed sportscar. But aside from these minor issues, the battle is excellent and one of many good examples of Dempsey's great creations.
Mission 1: Bonus for destroying all starfighters is shown before reinforcing waves arrive.
Mission 2: Reinforcements never arrive on hard difficulty.
Mission 5: Starfighter Kill Bonus Goals are 0 points. Mission not doable on hard.
Mission 7: Reinforcement fighters from the VSD are mentioned as Tie Fighters but in game the VSD launches T/A.

Title : The Raptor's Secret Author : TAC-PROF/FA Dempsey/CS-6/VSDII Sinister (#12519) firstname.lastname@example.org Platform : X-wing vs TIE Fighter Number of missions : 9 Medal : none Required patches ----------------- * EHSP for XvT (http://sco.emperorshammer.net/patch/xvt/EHSP-XvT.zip) Installation instructions -------------------------- 1] Double click the .EHM file, the EH Battle Launcher will install the battle 2] Press the X-wing vs TIE Fighter button on the EHBL to start the game 3] Create a new pilot and fly the Imperial training missions Introduction ------------ This battle was constructed as part of The Karana Initiative. The Hammer's mission against the Void Raptors continues. What starts as a simple cargo transfer operation swiftly leads to the discovery of a threat that will endanger the entire mission... Mission Hints ------------- M1: Focus on staying alive, not on protecting the convoy freighters or containers. The way the mission is designed, odds are very slim of being successfull, so your best bet is to protect yourself. M2: Concentrate your attention on the bombers and only go after the X-wings when the platform is in no danger. The Assault Transports if you fly on hard are easier to defeat when you are flying with advanced proton torpedoes! M3: The PLT Aerilon will take the brunt of the enemy's attack, so it might be wise to focus on the B-wings attacking this one. Also, consider choosing advanced proton torpedoes as your warheads, they make it a lot easier to deal with the Assault Transports! M4: Concentrate your fire on the freighters and try to ignore the X-wings: 4 torpedoes for the Conveyors and Cargo Ferries, 2 torpedoes and lasers for the Container Transports. You should even have enough torpedoes left to do some serious damage to one of the cruisers! M5: You have 2 waves of Assault Gunboats. Use the first to take down one of the platforms by firing all your rockets at it. Then use the second wave to take down the second platform. M6: Fire you rockets at the MC90 Paradeen, you should have enough to take it out nice and clean. Let Gamme focus on taking out the refueling depot. M7: Focus your attention on Y-wing group olmos - they are carrying rockets. While you're busy, Y-wing group Bamber will do damage to the Hammer, but if you take care of group Olmos fast enough, you should be able to stop Bamber flight before they can do too much damage. M8: If at first you fail, remember which Corvette is your target and ignore the rest. Once identified, you can assist your wingmen with the TIE Advanced fighters. Note that you might have to distract the fire of the Corvettes away from the ATR once it gets too close... M9: Focus on the factory - the enemy cannot send more TIE Defenders at you when their factory has been destroyed!
