Battle Reviews

Admittedly, not in love with this one. The orders for the transport that captures the CARG are such that it can capture the wrong one, giving you a soft lock for mission completion (an automatic point deduction for me). The political references are, unfortunately, quite out of date at this point. And, truthfully, I just don't enjoy dogfighting Missile Boats, T/As, and Assault Transports in a Gunboat. That may just be a personal failing on my part...

I didn't enjoy this very much. Not much for a briefing. It's overly complicated (10 objectives!) and too dependent on the ability of your wingmen to do their jobs which they often don't because they crash into enemy transports on attack runs. The reference to the Florida election recount in 2000 is now obscure because it was almost 25 years ago. And I really dislike missions where the debrieding officer's only comment is "You suck"

A very involved and complicated mission. Overall not bad.

Solid mission! I encountered no bugs and it was challenging and fun to play. Great free mission entry.

Fun mission with a lot of moving parts. In my play throughs it seems success or failure was down to if the wingmen can stay alive and take out the T/As

Outstanding mission. It really squeezes out the player and the full power of the War Mule, aka the Assault Gunboat. With proper equipment, a crew of skilled pilots with GUNs can tame down a whole convoy of armed CTNRs, CARGs and CNVYRs, plus a M/CRV and a DREAD, with their security detachments of and Missile Boats and T/As packing missiles. Word of advice, use Torps. This mission has it all, and will become addictive until you manage to complete it. One of the best I've flown for the venerable Mule, which may be old, but can kick anyone -as its sobriquet suggests- into dust in the void. Do not miss this golden classic.

This is a good free mission, Action packed not much waiting time and a Nice plot, In my view it gets 4.5 but I think I give to many 5s as I only rate the good missions/battles.

Includeds a funny reference to the USA's presidential election last year. That's kind of old news now, though. Too bad the TAC didn't approve it months ago. Oh well, still gets a laugh. Very complex and well put together. All the ships interacting and having the correct orders--quite beefy! Humorous story with serious battle setup. Great fun avoiding missiles while trying to disable the targets before they escape. An excellent mission. Fly it!

4] Create a new pilot and fly the first battle



     Grand Admiral Ronin has created a new division known as the Marauder
Division. This division is solely dedicated to entering into non-EH space
and capturing craft of potential use for the EH. Pretty much, the goal
of this division is to steal enemy or neutral craft. The division is
specially outfitted with ESC Assured and a few smaller CRVs all of which
were 'borrowed' from neighboring Imperial lands. Now that the division
is outfitted, it will begin its missions.

     You are a young Commander who was recently designated as leader of
a new squadron specifically designed for the Marauder Division. This
new squadron is called Raid Squadron. A crude name but correct nonetheless.
The ESC Assured has entered another part of Imperial Space. It has already
carried out several successful missions using the two other squadrons in
the division: Thief Squadron and Maraude Squadron. Your squadron is to
carry out its first mission. 

     The ESC Assured has exited hyperspace near two standard traffic
navigation and communication satellites. It is standing stationary and
waiting for some trading vessels expected to arrive. There shouldn't be
any problems attacking and taking these vessels. Normally, we would go
for war ships, but GA Ronin has specifically directed the attack on these
ships as they are carrying ballots from Palm Beach and Miami-Dade Counties.
He wants to end the election now. With the importance of this cargo,
we expect Pirate interference from the famed Pirate: Bob Dole. We have
no interest in any of his outclassed older ships. We also expect police
interference. We are not sure of their size but we would like you to do
your best in capturing or disabling any large vessels. You will have an
Assault Gunboat because of reasons you will find in the game. You will
only be out with flight 1 of your Squadron which is still undermanned.
Good luck and be sure to follow instructions in the briefing and in

Hey! Just a little background insight. You know why this mission is called
Midnight Raid? Because I finished building it at midnight...hehe.
