Battle Reviews

COL Phalk Sturm



Solid battle. You get to fly almost all the alphabet fighters. The plotline is not bad, and the missions are laid out decently. The difficulty is more than adequate, and though not a walk in the park, it's very straightforward and far from impossible. In addition, you can benefit from flying the B-Wing and its massive triple ion cannon. It certainly proved more useful than its useless asymmetric triple lasers which can't hit anything smaller than a Star Destroyer. I recommend this one for a quick hour of carefree fun and to truly feel what it's like for our fellow brethren in the IW.

I flew this battle a while ago now, but I have fond memories of it being one of my first BoP battles. I don't know why some love it and some hate it, it's not perfect but certainly deserves a higher rating than it's getting!

I'm sure the Geneva Convention has outlawed battles of this quality.

Good fun battle with a nice plot. Also, it is a BoP, but there is nothing wrong with that. It is great.

SL Kitten-claw



The technical aspect of the missions would benefit from some refinement.

AD Adren Silvori



Good Battle i would really recomend this one

COL Woobee



Aside from one or two strange capship orders, this was a bug free, well crafted battle with interesting missions and a coherent, relevent storyline. An enjoyable battle, and a pleasant surprise for an Infiltrator Wing battle. I reccommend it.

For all who will fly this battle in the future i just wanna say that this is not XvT battle it is BoP battle.

COL Kermee



quite fun, a bit on the easy side in places.. and theres a jammin/Rein mix-up with the last mission. Overall its fun to play, but not super challenging (on harder dificulty levels)

After the recent recruitings of the IW, we need lots more starfighters to equip the new recruits. 
Until such time that we get new cap-ships, we will capture an Escort carrier and fill it with captured
Rebel starfighters. However, in the meantime things got a little more complicated. 

Mission 1: Capturing the ESC
INTEL has been monitoring the Minos Cluster region to find a suitable ship for IW's needs. Rebel ESC 
Inividuum has been located and will be captured.

Mission 2: Orders have come to hold position until MC80b Saratoga arrives. 
the Rebels attempt to liberate the ESC. Black and Enforcer squdaron must hold position until 
MC80b Saratoga arrives. 

Mission 3: Now with the firepower of the Saratoga and the rest of it's squadrons we will wait for 
           MC90 Bismarck to arrive and transfer the recruits to the captured ESC Individuum
Rebels are attempting once again to liberate or destroy the ESC and the Saratoga. They appear to 
have some extra starfighters on their hands.

Mission 4: Training
Now that the recruits are safely in their starfighters we will launch a series of recon missions in 
the surrounding territories, partially to test the new recruits and partially to find the source of 
this recent Rebel attacks. INTEL reports that rebels have too many X-Wing class starfighters in this 
area and they propably have a manufacturing facility somewhere.

Mission 5: Assault on the X-wing manufacturing facility.
An attack on the rebel manufacturing facility will be performed by MC80b Saratoga and the ESC 
Individuum and their squadrons.

Mission 6: Epilogue.
War Marshal Von Reinthaler is inspecting the new recruits.
