Tactical Operations Briefing: Rebel
Single Player Exercise: Corvette Alley V2
Skill Level: Hard
Duty Roster: Slot 1, X-wing Rogue
Craft: B-wing (BoP), or Y-wing (stock XvT)
Armament: Heavy Rockets (8)
Note: This mission requires a lot of skill, time, and patience.
Begin the mission as B-wing Green 4. Set ELS to 0/0 and link lasers, ions, and heavy rockets. Get your wingmen to target Zeta 1 while you target Zeta 2. Redirect ELS to your preference when you are in range of Zeta 2. Fire until its shields are out, then disable. Next, do the same for Zeta 1 - though you should now tell your wingmen to ignore it. They will attack Gideon 1 while you disable the T/A.
As soon as Gideon 1 is destroyed, a Strike Cruiser will hyper in. Immediately target it and order your wingmen (and subsequent waves) to attack it. If you are lucky, it will not fire a missile at you. Fire all your heavy rockets at it, then hyper out.
In your second B-wing set ELS at 0/0 and destroy Zeta 2 on the way by. Re-order your wingmen to target the Strike Cruiser. With any luck it should go down while you race to attack the corvettes. If you are near it and it happens to have 3-5% hull strength, dump shields to lasers and finish it off. Depending on how things are faring you could split your choice two ways: go after Gideon 2, 4, 6, and 8 OR 3, 5, 7, and 9. Your wingmen will now be free to assist you to destroy a few corvettes and will do so with moderate success. Gideons 10 and 11 should also be kept in mind if they are within easy range. By this point you may have picked up a few T/As from Omega and will need to use flares accordingly. Either lead them away in a merry chase or risk a jump to hyperspace.
Enter with your last B-wing. Again, ELS should be 0/0. Race after the remaining corvettes and destroy them with your rockets. It is entirely possible at this point that you will have every fighter on your tail and Green 12 as your last remaining wingman on the map. Lead every fighter away and order 12 to destroy the last corvette. If you have scored high enough for points, then it should push you over 50,000.
Great shot, kid! That Top Performance was one in a million!
