GN Silwar Naiilo



A fun battle pitting a pair of E-Wings against a variety of different fighter craft. It would be reductionist to call this a simple "training mission" though - the amount of effort put into the briefing, combat logs, and the wav pack (which you should absolutely install) pushes this mission into one of the more well-polished in our archives. It is a long mission, but it's certainly not boring, and the twist at the end was fun and could make this an interesting competition mission.

As for the E-Wing: wings are a little too wide, the triangle lasers are weird, but the high energy recharge rate makes it comfortable to fly. 7/10 craft.




This one is a fun gauntlet! A bit of a long mission but exciting the whole way through plus a few surprises. I felt like I had earned an E-Wing Gold Combat Medallion by the end of it.

Colonel Locke Setzer and General La’an are ardent believers that the E-Wing is a far superior craft to any
that the Rebels are currently using. They chalk this up to an overly powerful X-Wing lobby. They wish to show
the rest of Typhoon Squadron, and others in Battlegroup III, the merits of this forgotten craft and have,
with the blessing of Admiral Stryker, arranged a demonstration of the E-Wing’s formidable capabilities. Their
hope is that by showing the E-Wings superiority, it may become a more widely used craft in the Infiltration
Wing of the Emperor’s Hammer. Although how effective that would be as the New Republic does not widely use
the craft is not important in this operation.
