Battle Reviews

CM Jagged Fell III



A decent free battle with a story to justify the dogfight and cap capture.

COL Phalk Sturm



Poor mission. Even in the T/Pr it feels totally unrealistic. After you manage to disable all CRVs and destroy the SHPYD, it comes to mind that those tiny capsules were actually the boarding parties to take the CRVs. Nonsensical, at best. Can the EH afford proper boarding craft? A humble TRN would suffice. A total mess. Boring and illogical. Don't fly it is my suggestion.

LCM Marek Ny`Irfa



This is overall a mediocre battle that's overly difficult as it has been noted. TIE Praetor is an interesting craft to fly. Patching the modern releases of XWA is a nightmare though. VM + original game yields better results.

COL Rau Aznable



I really loved this mission! It's a bit impossible on hard, but it's really fun on medium. Always a pleasure to fly the Tie Praetor. The idea of using the E-pods for capture operations is also original.

MAJ Erryc Lasitter



...the only saving grace of this mission is the storyline... Impossible on hard... WAY too difficult on Medium... Still too hard for an Easy setting... Sorry, didn't like it...maybe adjust the difficulty levels.

We have discovered that a nearby shipyard is building a group of six corvettes. It has been decided to "obtain"
these ships. Because the shipyard is so heavily defended, we need to pull off some of its defences. Ranger
Squadron has flown ahead and staged an attack. They will then flee back into hyperspace with most of the 
shipyard's fighter force following. You and your wingmen have joined up with the VSD Nemisis and the
M/FRG Hero to ambush those fighters. When you have finished, proceed to the shipyard and cover Ranger 
Squadron as they disable the corvettes. If Ranger Squadron is destroyed, it will be up to you to disable
the corvettes. The Immortal will join you to take out any capital ships there.When the corvettes have been
disabled, stormtroopers will sneak aboard the ships in E-POD's. This should get them through the fighting 
unharmed. When all the corvettes have been captured, destroy the station.
