Battle Reviews

CM Jagged Fell III



I played on easy: I really enjoyed this battle. Even though you are in T/I without shields or a.missiles it never felt unfair and all the action was manageable and fun. Had a decent story and the briefings were good.

COL Phalk Sturm



A simple, but effective and solid battle. It features de K-W and E-W which are somehow a novelty, while the player will have to engage into mostly dogfights and protection missions, which will be challenging and long to endure, but never boring or tedious. A warning, though. This is for unshielded hardcore fans since the only available craft will be the always-delivering rugged Space Shoe, aka the T/I with old warheads. Thankfully some decoy beams will be available from time to time. A battle worth playing

This battle has been made to introduce the Squadrons of Wing XXI aboard the Kawolski and
to advertise and test the combined use of the E-Wing and K-Wing patches for XvT in use 
as an additional enemy craft. It is part of a series of battles about varied TC units and 
their squadron objectives.

Story Line
1. Pyr Squadron, 139th TIE Corps Squadron, of Wing XXI is based upon the ISDII Kawolski and 
its objective is Fighter Suppression. Fighter Suppression Squadrons assist other squadrons 
in the completion of their goals, by drawing enemy fire and providing precise counterfire 
AND provide fighter defences for Emperor's Hammer ships and installations. 
In this mission you will be deployed in exactly that, Fighter Suppression: The VSD 
Retribution, of the ISDII Kawolski Battlegroup, has gone to the "Imperial Broadcasting 
Corporation" base in the Phare System to pick up supplies and today's newspaper for the 
Since the IBC has been harrassed by aggressive competitors lately Pyr Squadron will fly 
cover for the operation.

2. The attackers at the IBC base might have been Rebel, but they were part of the new 
republic fleet run by the Duke of Perlemian, who also owns the media corporation that's 
the direct competitor of IBC in this region of the Galaxy. Strangely, they were going for 
the printing ink and printing equipment - which might mean the Duke is having financial 
problems. But, since the TIE Corps has received no official call for help from the 
Corporate Division at this time, we are not getting involved.
We'll be transfering part of the cargo we picked up at the base from the VSD Retribution 
to the Frigate Venom, which is currently escorting a small convoy of similar goods on 
route to the Sovereign. Pyr Squadron will be deployed for to provide cover to the 
Stay on your toes, our captain was surpriced by the use of high-tech craft by the 
rebels - and our TIE Interceptors aren't really a match for those according to official 

3. The New Republic forces that attacked us during the cargo transfer were of the same 
fleet that attacked the IBC base before - which means we won't wait for an official 
request from the Corporate Division anymore to deal with them.
Since the rebels seem to be after our most basic supplies, even printing ink and 
newspapers, our Commodore assumes that they are trying to supply their own media 
corporation without having to spend hard cash on it.
We're going to deal with that in the most direct way: We're sending a small attack force
to the base of their media corporation and destroy it completely... solving the problems 
of both sides in this conflict. Pyr Squadron will fly cover for the attacking craft.

4. Apparently the base we destroyed wasn't working on newspapers and saterday morning 
cartoons after all... but on some kind of weapons development. Our staff has contacted 
the Science Office on the matter - but they also don't know how paper, printing ink, 
copper wire and fertilizer can be of any importance.
To find out the ISDII Kawolski has been sent to the IBC base we were first attacked at to 
collect some of these goods. The few captures we were able to make at the New Republic 
base might still crack under interrogation after which the Science Office will try to 
duplicate their work.
The ISDII Kawolski will launch an Assault Transport to pick up the goods. These will take 
a few minutes to get loaded on board at the station so Pyr Squadron will be deployed to 
secure the area.

You need XvT (or at least all the ships involved there) AND the E-Wing and K-Wing Patches. 
To fly as a team all players need the same version, make sure you all have the update by 
lucasarts installed.
