Battle Reviews

The obtuse goals didn't really work for me on this one. I get the concept, just didn't love it in practice

Can be done VERY quickly, as an assassination mission should be able to be done.

Average mission and scratching the boring quote, as it is the usual kill'em all layout, but in this case, failed to deliver some solid fun. For personal preferences I chose the Space Cadillac in this one, and that provided that extra ingredient to keep an interest on the mission until the end, otherwise, it's the usual concept seen a zillion times. Worth a point FCHG of replication.

You get a choice between flying as a Missile Boat or a TIE Defender. The Missille Boat was buggy but I will not hold that against the mission creator. The briefing was fine, but the mission itself was lacklustre. If you see me award less than 3 it means it is not worth your time and you should only play this mission if it's part of some competition or a high score chase.

Standard mission. Get in, destroy fighters, destroy ships and platforms, end of story.

Battle Bug Reports

CPT Matu Vonnegut


Missile Boat only allows loading of one ordinance bay, flies incredibly sluggish as if it were a much larger ship and the lasers do not fire. Options to load primary ordinance in the hanger only allows you to select your ship type. When selecting missile boat in this menu it says ordinance unloaded. Selecting TIE Defender says ordinance loaded, but there is none other than what is selected as secondary ordinance.

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
We have found out the probable location of the NR-SSF COO, Gen. Ratah, and Wasp will be sent in to 
take him out at the NR Base he's visiting in orbit around Bav III.
Be sure to first take out his communication lines so he doesn't receive more help then at the Base 
already and then check if our intel is correct and that actually is their COO, not some other simple 

You need the XWA (or at least all the ships involved there), you need the xwasfoil.exe patch to
get rid of your s-foils problems (if occuring) but also your secondary warheads, your SLAMS etc
I'm afraid:\
