Battle Reviews

CM Jagged Fell III



Didn't really stand out for me, but it also didn't have anything that angered me either

COL Phalk Sturm



This battle is very hard and not for the faint-hearted. It will require not only attuned piloting skills and good aim, but the correct tactical approach in order to win through some of the toughest yet challenging and very much completable missions. It has a wide spectrum of roles, and lets you enjoy the battle on the T/D. The only reason I am not giving it a full 5 is because first mission requires some tinkering in order to be easier to accomplish. Fly it if you look for a challenge. But I warn again, it will be a real pain to finish it
