    Battle Reviews

    COL Phalk Sturm



    Interesting though long and fatiguing. This mission sees you flying any of the exotic heavy fighters, such as the Skipray Blastboat, the Toscan or the Razor. My personal favourite is the Skipray. Although entertaining, the mission was excessively long and at times, confusing about what to destroy. For FCHG needs only.

    These not really a new craft, just new paintjobs. It's recommended to be used only for 
    missions that involve only Supas or Toscans of the Emperor's Hammer and not any of opposing forces.
    If you want to do so you have to install it via a patch as a new craft.
    - Place the OPTfiles in your FLIGHTMODELS folder.
    - rename SUPAFIGHTER.OPT to SUPAFIGHTERbk.OPT or something like that.
    - rename TOSCANFIGHTER.OPT to TOSCANFIGHTERbk.OPT or something like that.
    - to change your Supa's and Toscans back, reverse procedure.
    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
    Recon by Scorpion Squadron has pointed out that there is a large New Republic force gathering at Genko, 
    a CRS plus its full task force it seems. The Emperor's Hammer is definitely not pleased about this - so 
    we'll sent to deliver the Rebels a message.
    Hyper to the Genko System and take out the main capital ship of the taskforce there, the Calamari 
    Cruiser Cavalry. That should make it very clear that the EH is drawing a line here. If you want and can 
    you are then allowed to take more of the Rebel ships out.
    Other Information
    This is the First release. Bugs could arrise - please
    mail me if they do - also if you have hints, death threats,
    questions or apraisals.
