    This is a great mission to go grab lunch on after you destroy the capital ships. I ended up blowing the three ships out of the water fairly quickly with my full complement of torpedoes and the support of my wingmen. After that I warmed up the oven and threw a pizza in there. Still had time to put my feet up as I waited for the Mon Cal to finish up.

    I liked it. The Genko Industries are starting to grow on me. :) This was an excellent mission but with a couple of major blemishes that stain the experience. The forced waiting time at the end is too long. Perhaps the mission creator underestimated the performance of the players. You end up having to wait an additional 7mins+ for the Corvette to finish and for the Calamari to go home.

    Nice challenging mission. Unfortunately your MIS is ,as it happens often, loaded with underperforming warheads. This will add effort to the mission goals that provide you sink an ISD, a VSD and an INT, while fighting their complement of TIE starfighters. However, long and slightly wearisome, this mission is well-structured and allows to express the full capabilities of the mighty Überbomber, even if it was loaded with budget warheads. With greater choice of warheads and that pointless waiting for the CRS to hyper out, this mission could have been so much better.

    - This is a little more complicated. Go to the patch archive of the Science Office at
    http://www.scienceoffice.net/patch/view_cat.php?id=1 and download the Missileboat and 
    TIE Defender patches. Read the installation instructions of both and install them
    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.
    - 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.
    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 Squadron join together against a common foe.
    Story Line
    Eagle Squadron, 110th TIE Corps Squadron, of Wing XVI is based upon the ISDII Predator and 
    its objective is Assault. Assault Squadrons assault and assist in capture of heavily 
    defended objectives.
    With the militairy conversion the Rebellion made of the Calamari "Cruisers" we'd almost 
    forget that these ships were originally designed and built as cruise ships - and there are 
    still quite a few in service as such.
    We got reminded of this fact by a distress call from one of these Cruise Liners, carrying 
    over 1000 tourists. It has run upon an asteroid because of a slight navigation error and 
    this disabled the main power generator. Out of control, it's floating deeper and deeper into
    the asteroid field - which will most definitely be the end of them.
    A support CRV of the ISDII Vanguard has been sent in to help the Cruise Ship out, Eagle 
    Squadron will be flying escort.
    You need XvT (or at least all the ships involved there) AND the SCO Patches for the
    TIE Defender and Missileboat.
