Battle Reviews

COL Phalk Sturm



Nice and quick mission about protecting a convoy against the elusive Cyciliac Fighter and other regular TIEs. It's fast and brutal, since most of the freighters in the convoy are already in bad shape. Additional missile-wielding ISD Blackrain will make things a little harder, but overall well balanced and fun to play. Worth a try and also yields 1 single enigmatic FCHG point.

Battle Bug Reports

CM Vanguard88


Freighter Gheras is assigned to the incorrect global group, it should be assigned to global group 1, not global group 0.

Opening mission text incorrectly designates Inferno squadron instead of Cyclone squadron.

Tie interceptor alpha starts off on the incorrect number, it should start on #1, not #13.

GN Dunta Polo


Z-95 Tarmen don't engage the enemy starfighters.
