Battle Reviews




Not bad, but for whatever reason it takes forever for your guys to dock and board their last objective. Also be careful there are some sneaky Y-Wings that will come up on your ISD if you're not watching it. After it takes however long, maybe 3 minutes or so, for the boarding operation to complete, a new cap ship and some X/A-Wings pop out also with some ATRs to really wreck your fun. On easy the objective was able to complete before this was a problem - at higher difficulties this might be frustrating if you've waited for the dock to complete only to be surprised by a final wave.

This mission you have a choice to either fight off fighters or to help disable a Cruiser. I chose the Cruiser option because I find that AI isn't always that efficient at it. After disabling the Cruiser you help mop up any fighters and then you get stuck in the slow crawl wait for the transport to dock. Vader never would've allowed people to hyper in too far or too close.

COL Genie



This mission feels well-crafted. I am interested to give it another on hard. I feel it has a few more things to offer. The payload of the Guns is a bit of an overkill and there will be some waiting time come the end of the mission.

COL Phalk Sturm



At least some mission with decent payload for your GUNs. This engagement is straightforward but challenging as well. Disable a CRS while fending off its complement of rebel fighters. Worth a try

Filename:        wxiv1copperhead.zip

The Imperial.lst and Mission.lst replace your original files, so back those up!

1] Double click the .EHM file, the EH Battle Launcher will install the battle.
2] Check the Misc folder in your XvT one for additional material like patches, sounds etc.
3] Press the X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter button to start XvT and fly the battle.
- Create a new pilot for the mission based on your name or PIN and the mission number. 
For example, SL Stele playing Free Mission 80 would make a new pilot file named "StelFM80." 
or a Pilot with PIN 2883 playing Free Mission 69 would make a new pilot file named "2883fm69" 
- Begin flying the first training mission.

This mission is part of a series of free missions about each of the squadrons in the ASF doing 
missions following their squadron objective in their assigned craft. Each mission tries to give
a feel and a bit of history of each of the Squadrons. All the storylines of the missions are
interconnected and have the ASF Squadron join together against a common foe.

Story Line
Intelligence tells us that there is a lone Calamari Cruiser waiting for resupplies hanging around 
somewhere near Pyrath. Since Intel would love to check it out and the IW can always use a new CRS, 
we're going to try and capture it using an ATR from Turtle Squadron.
Copperhead will need to give the ATR protection and help in taking out the CRS shields and systems. 
Realize that this CRS might be alone,  but this still means you'll be up against a wing of fighters.

You need the XvT (or at least all the ships involved there), as far as i know
no other patches are needed.
