You know, I didn't mind this mission, but I didn't love it. Like a lot of XvT missions you're sent to destroy two capital ships, and you're given a good amount of wingmates to do it with. Also like a lot of XvT free missions it's a little light on story so if you only play it for the story, either fly it as part of the group of battles like it, or avoid it except for easy points.

I played on Easy. You kill a couple of capital ships in this one. For once, your Gunboats aren't overwhelmingly powerful, but they definitely have more than enough Rockets to make short work of this mission. It was decent enough.


This could be one of those cookie cutter mold type of missions. Take a gunboat squad and go destroy some capital ships with no fighter resistance to deal with. Short, sweet but I feel like I've done this a million times already. I'll take my RTF points and leave.

Enjoyable mission, if not that difficult. Its easy to complete (on easy admittedly) and fairly quick if you don't hang around. Another one of his decent missions - recommended if you want a quick one.

Decent and promising. Will return to retry it on hard for a potential high score escapade.

Another good example of an entertaining mission from Ender. This time, bombing a CRS and a DREAD, and either assume the dogfighting and escorting, or the bombing yourself. GUNs are well armed and more than suitable for the task. Fast and simple. Worth a try

I've seen reviews like CrazyR2's many many times before, but generally ppl rate a bugless "enjoyable" mission or battle 3 or higher...

I've seen this sort of plotline before many, many times. But still, it's somewhat enjoyable.

Installation 
------------
note: the original .lst files in your train and combat files will be overwritten, you will not loose 
access to your exsisting Combat missions but because of EHTAC regulations the Training missions are 
replaced. 

IMPORTANT! ONLY USE THE SINGLE PLAYER MISSIONS (TRAINING MISSIONS) FOR HIGH SCORE SUBMISSION.

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.
- Place these files into your /Combat directory: IMPERIAL.LST, MISSION.LST, REBEL.LST, ASFVANMP.TIE
- 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, fly on till you've finished training mission #1

Description
-----------
This mission is part of an XWA Battle about the History of the Vanguard.

Story Line
----------
ViB Historical Missions: "Classic Conflict"

When the ISD Vanguard was assigned to the battle group of the (then) Vice Admiral Thrawn, their primary
concern at the time were the traitor admirals Harkov and Zaarin But that didn't mean they didn't
see anything of the actual Civil War of that time... the so called "Classic Conflict" between Empire
and the Alliance guerrillas.

This mission is about a simple interdict and destroy operation that got out of hand when the
Interdictor Artemis, assigned to the Vanguard at the time, pulled out of hyperspace more
then the actual Light Calamari Cruiser with Z95 escorts they were aiming for. 
Within moments the pilots of Wing XV were confronted with a sizable force of Rebels and
it was only because the GUNs Thrawn had assigned to them that you can still use
these simulators onboard the Vanguard today.

Try if you can do as well as they did in the day.


NOTE 
-------------------
COMBAT NOTE: For this mission to work in MP, all players must have it installed on the same mission 
number, in this case "120". Preferably do not change this number.
FCHG NOTE: TAC won't let you fly Combat Missions or XWA Skirmishes for FCHG Points, use the Single 
player mission for all TC flying outside of combat competitions. 
GENERAL: You need XvT (or at least all the ships involved there), as far as i know no other patches are 
needed. To fly in Combat all players need the same version, make sure you all have the update by 
lucasarts installed. 
SINGLE PLAYER: This mission was made as a Combat Mission, its goal is to be fair to both sides so it 
can be played instead of a regular melee. 
MULTI PLAYER: For multiplayer this mission supports 3vs3.  Randomize on (not allowed in 
SP) will give you all the same variations in craft, like the CRS.

Other Information
-----------------

This is the first release of a very quickly made and hardly tested mission. 
Bugs could arrise - please mail me if they do - also if you have hints, death threats,
questions or apraisals.
