Battle Reviews

GN Triji Boliv



This was a fun battle. A-wing is a good change from flying TIEs all the time. Mission 2 where you have to clear 2 mine fields and kill a CRV solo had some challenging elements but wasn't too difficult. All in all, I recommend, fun battle!

COL NiksaVel



I flew this on medium for the Remob4 competiotion without any extra effort. Manage to finish all the missions on first try, they were decent and fun. No grinding! The storyline is okay, but it has the IW as a special force team doing the regular Navy frontal assault missions which is so often the case with our missions but it's really against the infiltration doctrine.

RA Genie



I liked this one very much. It looks and feels polished. It was a joy to play it, I highly recommend giving it a try. Might return and try it on hard!

COL Phalk Sturm



An average, short battle. The plotline is not bad and the briefings are simple yet well made. You get the chance to fly the B-W which is a plus in my book. Some missions though would be much better with reload craft, and also last mission looks suspiciously identical to the precedent one in the same battle. If it had a little more effort put into it, it could be a very good one. Unfortunately, this is one the many examples of good intentions but not enough work that come up with an average almost mediocre results. Worth the 4 FCHG but nothing more unless you want to fly in the B-W.

GN Abel Malik



This battle certainly does not deserve such a low mark & was well worth the download.

LC Linkan



The fact it doesn't contain any bugs, and that it was constructed in two days, it doesn't suck that hard. It could be worse.

SL Kitten-claw



This is one of worst battles I've ever flown. Why do they release such stuff?

AD Adren Silvori



Good battle with a good fluid action No waiting around the flight groups do there JOB and its has no bugs to speak of good stuff

Mission 1: Capture M/SC Hammer
M/SC Hammer is on its way to a Rebel planet in order to meet with the planets 
Governor. This Governor claims that his scientists have created a new and 
improved ion-engine, and wants to test it on M/SC Hammer.

What they don't know, is that squadrons from the Infiltrator Wing has managed 
to get into this sector with orders to disable and capture M/SC Hammer.

If the operation is successfull, M/SC Hammer will be brought back to Imperial 
space, where it will be equipped with Imperial personell, before going back to 
the planet to steal this new invention!

Mission 2: Clear the Path
We have picked up signals of a large number of Rebel reinforcements heading 
for this sector. Time is short and we must act fast if we want to get hold of 
the new ion engine!

Instead of using M/SC Hammer as cover in order to infiltrate the planet 
surface, we will launch MC90 Renegade with a strike team, and aquire the ion 
engine by force!

Before we can launch MC90 Renegade, we must get rid of the planet's defence 
perimeter consisting of two mine fields!

Mission 3: Strike Team
We will send three ATR's with storm troopers to the planet surface in order to 
obtain the ion engine.

While the strike team is away, you will patrol the area around MC90 Renegade 
and make sure nothing happens to it. 

Mission 4: Ion Engine
MC90 Renegade is still orbiting above the planet and more Rebel reinforcements 
are on the way.

While we wait for the ATR's to come back, you must patrol the area once again 
and make sure that MC90 Renegade survives.
