Toscan Fighter (EH)


This battle includes an extra EH-style OPT for the Supa Fighter to be used in
missions featuring EH only Supas. Read the readme.txt.

Extra EH-style OPT for the Toscan Fighter is also included but using the official patch from the Science Office is recommended instead.

Battle Reviews

It at least can be very fast if you only want the FCHG point, destroy one cap and then leave

Interesting though long and fatiguing. This mission sees you flying any of the exotic heavy fighters, such as the Skipray Blastboat, the Toscan or the Razor. My personal favourite is the Skipray. Although entertaining, the mission was excessively long and at times, confusing about what to destroy. For FCHG needs only.

Installation of Mission:
The EMAIL.TXT 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 XWA for additional material like patches, emails or sounds. 
3] In EHBL, create a new "EH Pilot" in the Game Menu (Check "Prepare for EH Battle").
4] Press the X-Wing Alliance button to start XWA and fly the battle.

Installation of OPTs:
These not really a new craft, just new paintjobs. It's recommended to be used only for 
missions that involve only Supas or Toscans of the Emperor's Hammer and not any of opposing forces.
If you want to do so you have to install it via a patch as a new craft.

- Place the OPTfiles in your FLIGHTMODELS folder.
- rename SUPAFIGHTER.OPT to SUPAFIGHTERbk.OPT or something like that.
- rename TOSCANFIGHTER.OPT to TOSCANFIGHTERbk.OPT or something like that.
- to change your Supa's and Toscans back, reverse procedure.

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
Recon by Scorpion Squadron has pointed out that there is a large New Republic force gathering at Genko, 
a CRS plus its full task force it seems. The Emperor's Hammer is definitely not pleased about this - so 
we'll sent to deliver the Rebels a message.
Hyper to the Genko System and take out the main capital ship of the taskforce there, the Calamari 
Cruiser Cavalry. That should make it very clear that the EH is drawing a line here. If you want and can 
you are then allowed to take more of the Rebel ships out.
