Battle Reviews

Found this actually pretty enjoyable - playing the good old TIE Fighter was fun, and enjoyed the dogfighting in this one!

I just flew this mission, moments ago, and it's probably going to take me longer to write this review than it did to install and actually fly it. So, on easy at least, if that's something you're looking for I highly recommend it. However, if you want a challenge or even some idea of what you're doing, a sense of purpose, look elsewhere. However, Frodo does make a guest apparence, so that gets a bump in score from me.

I played on Easy. There's not much to this battle. You are more than equipped to kill the shieldless Calamari Cruiser. It's honestly a little unfair to the Rebels, this mission is so skewed in Imperial favor. I'm not sure how you could lose.

pretty simple mission on easy, i was attacking the capital ship and the missions seemed to finish itself after awhile. good one for a quick mission and if you want to practice shooting capital ships

Gunboat run if you are smart because the objective here is just to kill a Mon Cal Cruiser and that's easiest done in a Gunboat. Extremely quick mission and doesn't require a bunch of effort. Just unload your rockets and boom, down she goes. It helps that it doesn't have any shields either.

Another example of fire rockets, change to your wingman and then repeat. This is a very simplistic mission where the goal is to destroy a Mon Cal cruiser and its easily done in 2 min flat.

Waste of time. I am not sure why the missions are crafted in this manner. Fly it for completion otherwise don't bother. I will eventually double back on some of these for attempting them on hard.

Another nice mission for bombers, especially the GUN since it will be properly loaded. The dogfighting is against a rebel complement of usual alphabets with missiles. Nothing very sophisticated, but then again fun to fly and efficiently delivering some good times. Worth a try.

The Imperial.lst and Mission.lst replace your original files, so back those up!

1] Double click the .EHM file, the EH Battle Launcher will install the battle.
2] Check the Misc folder in your XvT one for additional material like patches, sounds etc.
3] Press the X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter button to start XvT and fly the battle.
- Create a new pilot for the mission based on your name or PIN and the mission number. 
For example, SL Stele playing Free Mission 80 would make a new pilot file named "StelFM80." 
or a Pilot with PIN 2883 playing Free Mission 69 would make a new pilot file named "2883fm69" 
- Begin flying the first training mission.

This mission is part of a series of free missions about each of the squadrons in the ASF doing 
missions following their squadron objective in their assigned craft. Each mission tries to give
a feel and a bit of history of each of the Squadrons. All the storylines of the missions are
interconnected and have the ASF Squadron join together against a common foe.

Story Line
In this mission you will have to preform Krayt Squadron's primary objective: Heavy Assault. After 
Copperhead captured a CRS, its taskforce hypered in and captured it right back. We now have been 
ordered to destroy it in return.

You need the XvT (or at least all the ships involved there), as far as i know
no other patches are needed.
