Tactical Operations Briefing: Rebel
BoP Combat Engagement, Attack on Secret Imperial Base
Skill Level: Hard
Duty Roster: Slot 2, Rogue
# Craft: 1
# Waves : 6
Armament: Heavy Rockets
Note: While hypering out in this mission is good, time is of the essence. It may be faster for you to eject and return with a new craft. You may lose points but you can quickly regain them by inspecting the assault shuttles which offer around 500 points each.
As soon as you begin, hit Shift-S then Space to call for reinforcements. You will need every fighter you can get!
Hit 'E' and cycle through the four TIE Interceptors targeting you. Set your ELS to 75/50. You will soon get missile warnings. Disable these four squints and shoot down their missiles, lest you be destroyed. As soon as this is done, switch ELS to 0/0 and head for the Iron Mine asteroid base. Meanwhile, the shuttles carrying bioweapons (Flight Group 'No Show') will have begun to launch in waves. Green Squadron can easily take down this first set of flights. Dumb fire all your heavy rockets at the base, then hit 'V' and twist to the right to hyper out.
With your new craft, head towards the asteroid base once more with ELS at 0/0. By the time you see 'No Show' 5 through 8 launch, you will need to intervene with your wingmen. A single heavy rocket will destroy a shuttle, but you need to fire them at point blank range for an effective hit. Be careful when you do. More will begin to launch. Dumb fire your remaining rockets at the base and hyper out again.
*Note: during this section you may pick up some TIE Interceptors. If this is the case, use flares or disable them quickly.
With your third craft, you need to be incredibly careful. If any shuttles have slipped through, destroy them. Otherwise, your third (or possibly your fourth) B-wing will be sufficient to destroy the base. The sooner you destroy it, the easier the mission will be. Once this is done, and once the shuttles have been destroyed, mop up the remaining fighters. With any luck, you have over 50,000 points.
Congratulations! You have earned a Top Performance!
