Battle Reviews

An enjoyable, is quiet simple mission - concentrate your fire on the two cap ship (which you should ID first) and then mop up the fighters. Make sure you don't forget the comsat as well!

Not bad, not great, but not bad either.
Reasonable comp mission.

It's a Missile Boat mission of the standard variety - a particular mission type I personally do not care for. You fly around and blow up the big ships while more or less being ignored by the other starfighters. Fairly simple to complete on its own, but there's a few little bits and pieces that made it an interesting free for competition purposes.

Quick and fun Missile Boat mission. Kill'em all. That's all there is to say about it.

A solid and well-built Missile Boat mission with solid target variety.

Fun mission! Not too difficult, but you do have to keep your eye on some of the enemy ships so the Bongo doesn't break!

This was a fun mission that involved taking out both fighters and capital ships, though only the capital ships will give you any trouble, and if you know how to take them on then the mission itself is pretty easy to pass. Though, I feel like when I do well I am still only getting half the high score that other pilots are getting, so there's obviously lots of room for the ceiling of your abilities to show off!

Not a bad mission, but nothing special to make it stand out. I like that it was a mix of dogfighting and capital ship attack. There was a little bit of tension with the STRCK being attacked by the Rebel Lt. Cruiser, but besides that the mission was pretty easy. Nothing major to mention as far as plot or story is concerned. Not much else to report on this one.

This was a fun mission. I always like a mission where you get to fly a missile boat.

A decent mission, though neither the plot, nor the gameplay itself excel.

As always any missions is a good mission!!! Thanks for taking time to make it!!! AAAA++++++++++

A bit diffrent. Two problems 1.Shin flight 1 are TIE Defenders this FM has them as Missile Boats 2. You don't need to put the ships class in the name (VSD: VSD BUE)

Ra Squadron, receiving a funny signal coming from deep space while on patrol, reported it 
in to Wing Commander Brian of Wing VI onboard the SSSD Sovereign. 

Relaying the report up to the Commodore, the Wing Commander received permission to check 
out this anomaly. 
Sending his recon squadron first, and holding back a deep strike squadron back as a 
reserve, his caution proved wise when Ra Squadron's Flight I reported two independant 
Imperial capital ships under attack.

Sending in his deep strike squadron, Shin, he gave orders to save the Imperial capital ships.

You are the Flight Leader for Flight I of Shin Squadron, outfitted with Missile Boats. 
Shin Flight II are escorting you in TIE Defenders. Your mission: Destroy the any enemy 
ships attempting to destroy the Victory-Class Star Destroyer Blue and the Strike Cruiser 
Bongo. Ra Squadron reports that the Imperial ships have deployed their own fighters to 
fight off the interlopers, but have met heavy resistance. Ra Squadron Flight I of TIE 
Defenders is on hand to provide some cover. 
Ra Squadron also reports the presence of a Light Calamari Cruiser and a Modified 
Nebulon-B Frigate, with fighter escort. 
Do not expect reinforcements, as they would take too long to reach the battle. Good luck!!!
