This mission is supposedly to be deep strike assignment, where a PLT is the target. You are packing heavy warheads, but what it actually is a mess of a zillion fighters crammed together, and besides the humorous start, it turned out to be a bit tedious. Just for those hard-hands pilots who wouldn't mind to spend wave after wave before actually reaching their primary objective.
A humorous premise, which made me laugh. Also a sign of just how old the TC is, the battles, and us pilots too. The mission only has a single objective, and is quite easy. There's not much to say about the combat. There's a lot of craft to fight, but they're not much of a threat. If you want an easy mission with lots of targets, this is it. Scoring is a bit on the lengthy side, but tolerable. There's a lot of optional craft to fight, particularly in the second phase of the mission. Actually there's a bit too many, as the craft limit will be reached if you don't clear away the fighters in the first phase, and it will prevent some of the second phase from arriving. There really isn't any need to stuff so many craft into play at once, considering most of them won't do anything. Aside from the craft limit issue, everything is functional. Not bad, but not really good either. To fly the mission as efficiently as possible, I'd recommend helping to keep your wingmen alive until the objective has been achieved.
Very simple and boring mission. A stab at some humour, but it doesn't quite land. There is only once nice element, which I won't spoil, in that you make some 'fans' angry. At least, this is what I got from the mission. The FGs though have some weird pathing, needing to fly quite far before they come back to attack you. Also, all the craft are equipped with MagPulse, so you never truly feel unsafe at any point. It could have been a lot better and ... funnier with a bit more effort. If you are aiming for a high score, it will take around 30 minutes. The main mission can be accomplished within 12-15 minutes. Bonus tips for those still reading this: The platform type chosen for this mission is inherently blind. As in, one of its sides (top side) is entirely blind-spotted and you can fire your lasers with impunity. At the end, the only craft you need to worry about are the ETRs. Don't crash into them just keep at high speed and keep making runs at them or save your missiles for the end
Another great mission, fly around, shoot some rebels, get home and get drunk!!!
Standard "go-destroy-the-Rebels-because-they-produce-the-TV-show-friends" scenario. Not exciting at all; just endless waves of enemys.
