Battle Reviews

RA Genie



Solid mission, though Mr Gunboat Tacky spoils all the fun. Otherwise a decent mission, give it a try. :)

COL Phalk Sturm



Challenging and entertaining mission about protecting a convoy from a DREAD and a bunch of rebel fighters. The action was great and special note should be taken to M/GUN Tacky since he likes to die a lot. Also a small but hideous detail is that MISs can not load proper warheads, so it will be a double ordnance of advanced missiles, and sinking a DREAD on missiles is almost as tedious as doing with quad-lasers, but certainly less than with the single toothpick of a laser in the Missile Boat. Wort a try.

LT Michael



I really enjoyed that one, and that's not only because it concerns my squadron but because of its great dynamic. You need quite a skills to complete it on hard difficulty. It gets tricky to check your six on z-95 and a-wings and keeping Mike alive. Chaff installed on a-wings gives you extra challenge, cause it takes some time to finish them with single laser installed on missile boat. Don't worry if you get your convoy disabled, repair team will come and make you successful on this objective. I rate it 5, this mission really made me thinking.

This is a nice mission with a target rich environment- a DREAD, Z-95's, Y-wings, small transports, and CNVYR's. Basicaly pirates attack the 4 civilian CNVYR's in the area and Cyclone has to deal with the pirates (former TAC Mike hypers in too- so watch his 6- if he dies your mission fails). Bonus points are available for destroying the DREAD, all the Z-95's, Y-wings, and pirate transports. Don't waste your time ID'ing the CNVYR's- they're not worth any bonus points:P. My only complaint is Mike won't follow orders, but does he ever? :P.

Installation Instructions:
Install the files in your XvT directory:
mission1.tie and imperial.lst /TRAIN 

If you use EHBL just double click on the .ehm file :P

Note: This mission is intended to be easy on easy level, but it can be hell on hard. So don't cry and become better player. Remember. XvT increases AI of all ships by 2 on hard, so it will not be easy. I'm not even sure if it's possible to complete all missions on hard, we it is but you must be really good.
