This is a very fun mission. A fun story that made sense and it was tough enough to be challenging but no impossible goals.
I ended up really liking this one after a few frustrating attempts on Hard and Medium. I'd definitely suggest trying to beat it on Easy first, and once you know the general plan, try it on harder difficulties. This one would be a good candidate for a 1-month competition: very possible to win in a reasonable amount of time on Easy, plus a lot of room to shoot for a high score. This one will test your multi-tasking and situational awareness skills. The hints after a failed mission were very helpful.
Pretty standard and quick free mission; Rebel caps with starfighters ambush Imperial caps with starfighters. Looks like room to play for high-score chasers. 3 bumped up to a 4 because it has good briefings and a little history lesson at the end.
There are currently no open bug reports for this battle.
