Battle Reviews

An enjoyable mission - and despite what the reviews say, it really pays to ready through the briefing - but keep an eye on the various target of the enemy ships, and you will be fine :)

Hey red five, are we the good guys or the bad guys? So in this mission you're helping the bad guys, aka the rebels, but don't worry you're still fighting the good fight! You're just waiting around for a meeting to take place (sound familiar?), but there is a dog fighting component. It's not the most difficult, but don't sleep on it either. They give you plenty of missiles if you pick right, I'll tell you that much.

Quick dogfighting mission. I did not really pay attention as I was reading the memes Discord and next thing you know this mission is complete. I think all I had to do is shoot down a fight starfighters. Oh well, gimme some RTF points please.

Interesting setup. I almost started shooting at the green targets! Making a note to come back and try this on hard as well. Decent dogfight, which I imagine is part of a bigger plotline.

Another good mission from Ender. Fast action throughout the assignment, while flying a T/A or T/I player will be found in some thick but well-balanced dogfighting. Worth a try.

This mission is easy to complete, but it's challenging to "clean house". Fly it on hard for some great interception and dogfighting.

Nice a quick, very enjoyable all around.

- 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"

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
A high NR Official wants to make a deal about giving us information and he has arranged a meeting 
on neutral ground with one of his adjudants. Both parties will go to the Genko System, each taking
an DREAD and transport. The transports will dock and further arrangements will be made. Vortex will
fly cover for the operation.

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