    Excellent mission. Everything excels as I am repeating myself. The animated briefings are precise, coloured and professional. The texts is perfect and concise. Then the mission, oh the mission. Starts like if hell broke loose when something like 18 A-Ws and 12 Y-Ws attack in coordinated maneuvers a small convoy of 2 ships, and just a single flight of four imperials fighters to resist them. But you're flying perhaps the best thing man invented in the galaxy. Alas not my beloved T/D but something infinitely superior. The TIE Praetor. And after applying some sound tactics, you can and will succeed against the whole rebel fleet that hyperjumps in the battlezone. It would have seemed folly and impossible to accomplish, but not in the T/Prae. This mission has it all, tactics, dogfighting, missile dodging and torpedo shooting, capital ships bombing. And again, I repeat myself, in the unbeatable, the unparalleled, the unapproachable TIE Praetor. If you want a true mission where to test you, fly this one. Don't miss it.

    You get to fly as a TIE Praetorian. Than in itself makes it worthwhile trying this out. You got a ton of targets throughout the mission. Be warned it's a bit on the longer side (approx 20 mins). My cup of tea, but maybe not everyone's. There is a long wait time until the 'star' of the show hyperspace out, which you can use to destroy the capital ships. Given the Praetorian's speed and firepower it feels a bit less daunting. Almost as good as a TIE Defender. Possible good mission for high score chasing.
