Battle Reviews

VA Locke Setzer



I enjoy the incorporation of some squadron history, which helps elevate a bit what is otherwise just a destroy-the-convoy mission in a somewhat fragile T/A

CM Jagged Fell III



Quick, but that was a lot of ships to destroy. Super easy with cheats on for a fast FCHG point though.

CM LQC-75-3



A pretty fun destroy the convoy mission, which is a bit challenging due to being placed in a T/A. Since the T/A's shields aren't too strong, it's not the ideal fighter to be attacking enemy ships protected with turrets. The fighters are mostly useless since your wingmen deal with them.

COL Phalk Sturm



Mediocre battle. Although well crafted and it sees some significant numbers of fighters, and more importantly, capital ships, which turn the whole operation circling mindless bombing or dogfighting until ending enemy birds. Overall, a bit tedious, and not very much fun besides the usual FCHG point for abnegate EH pilots.

RA Genie



You fly as a T/A with a fair bit of action. Having to destroy lots of medium capo ships and fighters. Take rockets with you if you are in a hurry. Straight shooter. Nothing extraordinary. Just mind your flying as those freighters and cap ships are closely packed together.

CPT Marc Kendoran



Its a good designed mission. Great thing to see all FLights fighting together side by side! HF Python! Go for it!!

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
The New Republic has been convinced, if only for the moment, to give up their interests in the Genko 
System and are in the process of getting their material and men out of the region. The INT Artemis of 
the Vanguard support will pull a convoy of theirs out of hyperspace in the neighbourhood of Genko after 
which you will have to destroy it.

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