Interesting battle in that you get to destroy then watch a factory get disabled, but where it gets a little challenging are the endless waves of Y/T-Wings with 200% shielding and heavy ordinance going straight for your mission critical craft. This was on easy. I still didn't find it particularly hard, but you might if you crank that up at all.

Flawed. It has issues and feels disjointed. Somewhere deep in there, there is a good idea. One of Ender's misses. He starts with interesting ideas but somehow more often than not the final product lacks the execution.

Tedious and boring. The first part of the assignment looked promising and action-paced, but then it turns into a poorly planned mission where the GUNs are underperforming with their available loadouts, and overall a not-so-fun gaming experience. Fly something else

Another mission that doesn't manage to hit the line between challenging and frustrating.

Flying in a TIE-I your only job - in an environment with dozens of fighters - is to protect your cap ship from proton torpedo barrage after proton torpedo barrage. And of course it's not only the Y-wings that are proton torpedo armed, and within firing range seconds after spawn...

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, ASFCMBM6.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
----------
Although their main System produce is olive oil, the Genkoans have always fancied themselves
quite the weapons developers: they even competed with Incom and SFS when the Empire needed 
new equipment. However the bulky internally cooled ionengines that are the Genkoan trademark
in craft design never caught on with the larger fleets in the Galaxy.

This is why recently they have been working mostly on warhead development and production - 
something they've always found more customers for then for their fighters and cruisers. Its 
highly probable that many of the warheads you ever fired were made in the Genko System.

Intel has discovered that the Genkoans are working on a new type of warhead that will blast 
away any form of shield - even planetary ones - in one salvo. This would destabilise the 
whole Galaxy and will certainly mean victory for whoever got their hands on it first.

NOTES
-------------------
COMBAT NOTE: For this mission to work in MP, all players must have it installed on the same mission 
number, in this case "131". 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.
