Battle Reviews

Keep an eye on some T/As being transferred while a whole lot of B-Wings & co. fire on anything and everything.

This has fair plot development and level complexity, but it is too easy even though you fly a gunboat. Also, the use of B-wings was way excessive.

It's just a bit modified mission from original TIE. Check "secondary mission goal complete" message and try to find "Protector" mentioned in it on mission map.

Well, it was a bit too easy, even on the hard difficulty. The plotline is a recreation of a single-player mission in XvT. Even then, it was fun to play.

Fun mission with a nice briefing. Not very challenging (though I only played it on normal difficulty), but fun nonetheless. A little more variety in the enemies would be nice. (There are only X-wings, B-wings, mines, and a couple of CRVs.)

Mission Brief:

Plotline for the mission "Colossus: Wing VIII Starfighter Overhaul"

One of our Carrier's the Eliminator will ferry in some fighters in which will replace 
our current supply: some TIE Advanced. Yeah baby, these craft are sleek and fast, the 
NR thought their A-W was bad. Anyway once we do the transfer then well start manning 
the squadrons with them. This way we can send our current craft to the maintenance 
department and get them checked before they break down and not work.

Your job will be to fly an Assault Gunboat and help protect these craft while coming 
aboard. Otherwise all may be lost. We must get our craft checked out by the maintenance 
department, and this is the only way to do it at the moment.

One thing to keep in mind is that the Colossus has been parked seriously close to a 
Rebel mine field. So be careful!
