A good mission, though sometimes your GUNs will sink the STRKC not giving the SHU the chance to launch and failing the mission. I tried not to sink the DREAD right off the start, and it worked. This is a problem of poor planning. Put that aside, the mission is engaging and fun to fly, since there is both bombing and dogfighting against some thick opposition. Worth a try

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, ASFCMBM4.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 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 Squadrons join together against a common foe. In storyline these
happen after the larger Wing Battles.

Story Line
----------
The New Republic's effort to bring the war between the Jeh'Ree System and the Genko System 
to an end is starting to pay off: Both systems have agreed to a meeting in neutral space 
under NR Spine Security Force protection.

Shuttles carrying Ambassadors from either system will each travel to the starship of the 
opposing force at the same time to prevent treasonous practices by either while fighters 
from the NR-SSF secure the area from opposing forces...

...Which is where the Emperor's Hammer comes in. The same leak that told them about the 
last meeting between the NR-SSF and the Genkoans now informed them where this meeting will 
take place. The EH is mostly interested in disrupting the procedings but might try for 
something more spectacular.

NOTES
-------------------
COMBAT NOTE: For this mission to work in MP, all players must have it installed on the same mission 
number, in this case "129". 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 2vs2.

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.
