Gunboat is one of my favourite starfighters, and any battle involving them, immediately has my attention. This battle was solidly made, with a high level of technical skill and a decent plotline, however it fails to deliver since it has GUNs always under-powered when it comes to the loadout screen, like if the EH could not afford Rockets or Advanced Torps, and what's worse, the inventories are half-loaded most of the time. The author does not help the player by buffing up the shields of capital ships to 200%, so there is going to be a lot of laser time in order to sink most caps. Especially in last mission, where you have to destroy a rebel fleet of a CRS, 2 CRVs and a FRG, with barely 12 standard torps. This was tedious, and ruined this otherwise excellent battle.

Another well made battle. MB always produces a straight forward professional battle. 1 small detail, either mission 3 or 4 a craft that is involved with the SCO transaction was destroyed. The mission was not automatically failed and just went on. I flew it 2nd time on easy and the transaction went smoothly. 4.5

Well put together set of missions. You'll need to pick your targets very carefully.


Battle Bug Reports

Mission 1: INT G'Neeznow only attacks Genkoan starships when its first set of waypoints is complete.

Mission 2: Both sides' starships only attack each other when their first set of waypoints are complete.

Mission 3: The briefing indicates Pyr squadron are flying cover, but they aren't launched till all of TRN Zulu are space dust. Both sides' starships only attack each other when their first set of waypoints are complete.

Mission 4: With the exception of the ISDII Kawolski, all TC starships do not attack enemy starships until their second or sometimes even third order. Apart from the CRS Peace Maker, the NR starships also seem to ignore the TC starships.

Throughout: The battle could use far less restrictive targeting orders for starships (obviously excluding craft that need to be disabled).

Description
-----------
This battle has been made to introduce the Squadrons of Wing XXI aboard the Kawolski and
to advertise and test the use of the Luggage patches for XvT. It is part of a series of
battles about varied TC units and their squadron objectives. Additionally it was made
according to storyline instructions from the TAC for his Missions Combat Competition.

Story Line
----------
1. Zlatan Squadron, 138th TIE Corps Squadron, of Wing XXI is based upon the ISDII Kawolski 
and its objective is Interdiction. Interdiction Squadrons eliminate a target's capability 
to flee, in any manner possible, up to and including destruction of the target.(The only 
good rebel is a dead one!). It might also be necessary to inspect an unknown (but suspect) 
flight group to determine which, if any, targets should be prepped for capture/disablement 
(ALWAYS preferable to destruction).
In this mission you will be doing exactly that; together with the Interdictor G'Neeznow 
you'll be conducting a routine customs check along the Aurora Prime border. Check passing 
freighters for illegal or black market goods and disable those that are smuggling goods.
Because Aurora Prime is the heartland of the Emperor's Hammer, you do not have to expect 
a lot of trouble - most passers by will be aligned to our fleet.

2. About everything that could go wrong went wrong on that last mission; besides the 
unexpected disaster with the tourist cruise liner which cost 1000s of lives, we also got 
our Interdictor shut down and the Science Officer was kidnapped from in front of our eyes. 
These events will make the Corps look in on the procedure of these random customs checks to 
avoid such in the future for sure.
Meanwhile we have the problem of the SCO being kidnapped by what seemed to be Genkoans and 
us having to go after them immediately as not to loose the track of their hyperspace 
vectors. The FRG Venom has been able to make very precise observations on these hyperspace 
vectors of the enemy force and we best use these to our advantage and hope we can rescue 
the SCO before the Security Officer closes down the whole operation on account of us 
messing up completely....

3. Apparently we followed the wrong part of the force that kidnapped our Science Officer. 
This did however clear up a lot of matters that were still pretty vague: Apparently the
Genkoans were hired by the New Republic to kidnap the SCO - and what we witnessed just 
now was the transfer of payment... which got quite expensive for all parties.
The G'Neeznow and Venom were able to pinpoint the routes of the escaping New Republic 
craft very clearly, so currently we're going after them as we hope they will take us to 
where they are keeping the Science Officer captive.
With what we found at the last meeting point we could determine however what this is all
about: Pyr Squadron had an unexpected run in with these same NR forces last week in which 
these rebels were trying to steal large amounts of substances like printing ink, copper 
wire, fertilizer and paper. The same materials the Genkoans were delivering just now...

4. We found the Science Officer's rusty old freighter back, but it didn't contain the man 
we were trying to save anymore... Which makes sense as the Emperor's Hammer just received 
the demands from the kidnappers: They will return the Science Officer if we return to them, 
unharmed, the Scientists Pyr captured last week. As you can imagine, our Command Staff is 
very displeased and the Security Officer has started an investigation into our actions....
But our luck hasn't run out yet: By chance we were exactly in the middle of the transmission
beam that sent the demands, and we can be at the location it originated from in mere 
minutes. This will most likely be the last shot we get at liberating the SCO and saving our 
own necks in the process.

NOTE 
-------------------
You need XvT (or at least all the ships involved there) AND the Luggage Patch.
