Amazing work, looks fantastic from start to finish with TFTC drastically improving the XWA version. Sullust Station was fantastic and looked almost alive. Eos and the low orbit locations including Aurora and Courscant look particularly amazing.
The skins, voices, video, email and other custom additions make it extra special. Even includes a fun YT2000 and XW mission. Fly it now. PAR!

As Frodo said, PAR!

I think this battle is great. It is definitely a challenge on some missions but not an insurmountable one, at least on Medium. Be sure to check out the Wraith Squadron battles that follow from this one.

Introduction
-------------
The Expanded Universe has held a special place in many of our hearts and minds, me especially. One of my favorite 
book series was the X-Wing Series by Michael A Stackpole and Aaron Allston. It was these stories that motivated me 
to pick up X-Wing Alliance back in the early 2000's. I previously released versions of this battle as two separate 
XWA battles XWA-TC 72 and XWA-TC 73. Here I am setting out to make an upgraded version of this campaign using the 
assets of the TFTC/XWAU mod. The baseline missions are the same between this battle and the previous two but this
battle makes use of the better visuals of TFTC/XWAU and the ability to have larger fleet battles and adds a mission.

This battle is based upon the story laid out in the books X-Wing: The Krytos Trap and X-Wing: The Bacta War by
Michael A Stackpole. The events of the books have necessarily changed due to the Emperor's Hammer's involvement
during the first two books, see my previous Battle.

From our first Battle with them, Rogue Squadron's attempt to take Borleias to be a staging point for their
attack on Coruscant failed due to the TIE Corps timely intervention. And things were looking like they would
continue with the Emperor's Hammer's, and by extension the Empire's, continued dominance over the New Republic.

But the New Republic deceived the Empire's Intelligence Division and our forces were drawn into two feint
attacks, allowing the bulk of the New Republic's forces to attack and capture Coruscant. We have rightly been
humbled by this turn of events and are now searching for a way to support Isard's Empire in its effort to topple
the New Republic and retake Coruscant.
