    alright battle but not very well balanced...................

    This is what the IW was supposed to be created for, wreaking havoc and confusion behind enemy lines. The battle is very well deigned and it follows it by the book. Perhaps the difficulty is a bit high since you'll find yourself dodging missiles all along. Very good plot, very good development and a bit too hard.

    Three out of five for me; the story is interesting, and fits what Infiltrator Wing SHOULD be: conducting false flag operations against the NR's would-be allies rather than against the NR itself. I wish there weren't so many missile-spamming enemies, though!

    Bug-free, interesting plot. Oh, and a quality briefing... "We cannot continue to operate with the pirates in our ass". Thanks Reese, that made me grin all evening >:-)

    This is an example of what a good IW battle can be and the plotline was provided by the COO himself so it's worth a try in the sim & it's always fun vaping some rebels;p.

    Mission 2 is impossible to complete. MC90 never arrives and therefore the 2nd VIP shuttle condition can't be met.


    GN Stryker

    Mission 2: MC-90 fails to turn up, making mission impossible to complete!

    Mission 2 (I think it was mission 2?) - The last VIP ship does not show up and I cannot escort it to safety. It is nowhere to be found.

    Patches: Battle requires MC-90 patch but this is not mentioned in the compendium or the readme file.

    Mission 1: The third FG of cargo tug craft is missing - its arrival conditions have not been set correctly.

    Mission 3: Redundant '1' at the end of SSD Avenger's name.

    Mission 5: FG number labelling on the White Guard ships is inconsistent.
