Balance of Power Tactical Operations Briefing: Rebel
Balance of Power Combat Engagement: Two on Two - Alliance CRLs
vs. Imperial STRKCs.
Skill level: Hard
Duty Roster: Slot 1, X-wing Rogue
Armament: Heavy Rockets
The T/As seem to give you a lot less trouble when flying in the
Rogue slot rather than the Green slot, so pick slot one and go with
a B-wing. Lock and fire eight rockets against STRKC Asp, and jump
to your second ship. Fire another eight rockets and hyper out of
the combat area with each of your first two ships.
In your new wave, fire just four rockets to finish off the Asp,
then find and fire your remaining four rockets at the second STRKC,
Eel. Jump to your wingman's B-wing, and unload your full rocket
load at the Eel. Drop some flares if enemy fighters start harassing
you before you've released your rockets. Again, hyper those two
craft out of the area to bring in your third wave.
Finish off the Eel with four more rockets. Once the second STRKC
blows, you've successfully completed the mission, and the hard part
is over. The T/As hyper away, and you're left with gunboats targeting
your CRLs, and a few others targeting you. Take out the gunboats,
concentrating on the ones attacking the CRL Re, which usually gets
beat up pretty bad. You should have some rockets left; use them
on the GUNs if you like, but you probably won't need to. You'll
typically have no more than one GUN targeting you at a time.
If you stick around to take out the gunboats, these tactics will
net you somewhere in the neighborhood of 58,000 points, good enough
for a Top Performance ribbons.
