Mission repaired to fix bug allowing for ridiculously high scores (among other things). High score for previous version held by LC Tempest [493,444 (05/26/2014)].
CPT Talas was a solid pilot and a wonderful creator. Another good job from my former wingmate. The T/B is a pain to fly in a dogfighting mission, but also challenging to reach fleeing targets in this space turtle. It has it all, bombing, dogfighting, even burning down an A-W! That's got to hurt Rebel scum, being shot down by the bulkiest and slowest starfighter, which is technically not fit for fighting. Be prepared to dodge bullets and try to fit the hammerhead like shooting lasers of the venerable TIE Bomber. COL Beef should be proud.
TIE Bombers are not dogfighters, their laser placement is meant for finishing off large bombing targets. This mission would have been better in the TIE Fighter for just that reason.
It's easily winnable, but if you're sticking around for a high score prepare to dodge a bunch of missiles from the R-41s. The mission is very well made despite its flaws. It features lengthy briefing and debriefings, a fair amount of comm chatter, a lot going on for bonus goals, and even a few ships toss in just to make the scenario a bit more lively and believable.
This one has an interesting little design flaw that allows for ridiculously high scores. :) [Not anymore - TAC Sienar]
But it's really fun to play.
Nice use of a T/B tho you do more dogfighting than bombing.
Well-balanced battle. Easy to complete on all levels, but fun to fly.
Despite having to fly one of less well liked fighters in the game, the T/B, this mission is well balanced and not too difficult even on the HARD setting. A must play mission for people who like the T/B ;)
There are currently no open bug reports for this battle.
