Battle Reviews

CM Benji Tandor



A fairly enjoyable battle with some diversity in the missions it offers.

My seventy-second battle in the TIE Corps.

LT Malcolm Howard



That is the first really acceptable IW battle I flew. Not bad designed without bugs, nice variety of ships and a good storyline. But whatfor the IW was sent to that battle, this is still a bit out of my understanding. My negative points are the difficulties of mission 3 and 4. I can recommend that one, but there are better battles around.

CM TK-9780



The mission’s are designed well and combat sequences are never boring. On down side there are a few errors, not major, but they can course real problems to the player at times.

LCM Leon Mehoff



fun easy.......it was ok

VA Bond



Looking forward to the diversity offered by non-imperial battles, I was dissappointed by the fact the battle did not work. There were numerous bugs, making it impossable to complete some missions. I do appreiciate the effort put into the story line, excelent thought and details. But the battle does not work. Hats off to the designers effort, but maby the IW could step up and test thier battles. :p

CM Jan Schneider



Nice Battle!

COL Kermee



fun, with a reasonable dificulty and balancing, not the most original storyline, but the missions aren't all "fly, kill, return" not too bad

Battle Bug Reports

GN Dunta Polo


Mission 1: Briefing is very barebones. IW fighters do not attack the Mechanoid R-41s. Mission 4: Disable objective should specify individual targets (it overlaps with the "destroy 50% of the enemy platforms" objective). Mission 6: CRV Harlow, CRS Bismarck, ISD Avenger and ISD Sovereign have no orders.

Minos Outlaws Campaign Series, Battle 3:
 DarTelis Expansion  Exterminate the Mechanoids
Medal: Crest of Silicon

Battle created by IWTAC/EM Proton (proton2001@hotmail.com) October 1998

BATTLE NOTES: This six-mission X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter battle was created for the use of the Infiltrator Wing of the Emperors Hammer. It is the third of three battles in the Minos Outlaws series by IWTAC/EM Proton. All Imperial pilots are encouraged to fly this battle. All missions have a choice of two to four IW craft to fly; the Rebel side is flyable also, but this was a secondary concern during the construction, and the Rebel side has no goals. Perhaps the Rebel side of the battle will be developed later, but it is not being done yet because the primary focus is to get the battle out where IW and other EH pilots can use it. The battle could be used for online competitions as well. For full appreciation of the Minos Outlaws story, pilots are urged to fly the first two battles as well (for the X-Wing and the TIE Fighter games, respectively).

BATTLE SUMMARY: Emperors Hammer high command has determined there can be no further reluctance to eliminate the DarTelis outlaw threat with maximum application of force. For decades, Imperial convoys and small military expeditions have been ravaged by the hit-and-run predations of Tyrranian mechanoid pirates. Their zealous defense of their cruel, isolationist society must not continue. Because of its successes in the Lyccos system, Infiltrator Wing has been dispatched to DarTelis to terminate the threat to Emperors Hammer hegemony in the region and exterminate the persistent spacefaring elements of the mechanoids.

Mission 1  Three freighters detected in DarTelis space controlled by the Tyrranian Mechanoid pirates must be inspected. The IWCS is trying to find out what shipments and materiel buildups the Mechanoids are conducting, so full assaults in the system can be planned. Rebel fighters have been detected in the area. X-wing Silver is the lead craft in this mission.

Mission 2  X-wing Silver and Y-wing Thunder are hypering into a DarTelis location where several Mechanoid cargo craft are expected to arrive momentarily. Thunder must destroy all incoming Mechanoid craft while Silver flies escort and assists in the destruction. Unfortunately, Rebel starfighters have just entered the system as well and they must be swept aside so we can complete this important mission.

Mission 3  Data collected by our starfighters astronavigation and sensor equipment from the Tyrranian cargo ships in the previous mission has given us a major opportunity. It has led us to the location of a vast array of Mechanoid platforms. These platforms are used as a major Mechanoid communications and command installation, plus military materiel shipping and logistics, as well as troop barracks and weaponry research and development. In short, we believe we have uncovered the biggest Tyrranian space base. If we can eliminate it, our objectives will be nearly completed in the the vital DarTelis system. The Tyrranian Mechanoids will be cowed into unimportance if we can conquer this vast depot. The first step is to inspect the installation and certain primary defense craft. Y-wing Thunder has been ordered to lead this mission. A-wing Intruder and X-wing Knight will fly cover.

Mission 4  Its time to start taking out the installations key components. The hangar, troop and weapons platforms are first. Any cargo or shuttle craft in the vicinity or trying to get away also must be obliterated. Numerous Infiltrator Wing starfighter groups will participate in this strike, flying from the Saratoga and the Bismarck. The Ark Royal is en route with reinforcements.

Mission 5  The rest of the installation will be annihilated in this engagement. Tyrranian reinforcements and Rebel troublemakers will be major obstacles in this mission. We must be quick and efficient or our forces, as numerous as they are, could be overwhelmed. We must not fail!

Mission 6  Our capital ships are preparing to align themselves in all the key locations to launch ground strikes against the Tyrranian Mechanoids. This operation will complete the Infiltrator Wings objective, to eliminate all Mechanoid designs to expand beyond their planetary havens and cause trouble for the Emperors Hammer and its overall goals in the Minos Cluster. Our victories to date have been so impressive that the SSSD Sovereign and the SSD Avenger will arrive to observe the IW fleet operations. We still may expect a last-ditch desperation assault from the cunning Mechanoids. Intelligence is certain that a few remote space outposts remain in control of the pirates, and they still may possess substantial forces. Furthermore, Rebel traffic in this region of space has picked up again within the last two hours. Be alert, all IW starfighter forces.
