Tactical Operations Briefing: Imperial
XvT Single Player Exercise, Gunnery Training
Skill Level : Hard
Ship : Tie Advanced (T/A)
# of craft : 1
# of waves : 1
Armament : none
Beam : none
Now, this is the easiest mission to successfully complete in the
whole of XvT missions, even on Hard. But if you want to get a Top
Performance, you'll have to sweat a little.
When you start, set your ELS to 100/100 and blast the container
in front of you. Remain at 0 mglt. Now swerve a little to the right
and blast the second container. Kill the rest of the containers
while remaining at 0% throttle.
Once all of the containers have been killed, keep your ELS at
100/100 and head down towards the platform. Stay at a distance of
at least 1.5km in front of the platform so that when the first Z-95
comes out, it will be heading strait at you or at a very slight
Kill the five first Z-95s in succession, as they will come out
slowly and not target you.
Next, five single Z's will come out and will target you. Once
these five Z's are destroyed, a pair of Headhunter's will emerge.
After this, a trio of Z's will emerge. And after that a quad group
of Z's will come out. Eventually, you will reach the point where
a full squadron will emerge from the hangar and soon after that
( without you killing them), one more squadron will exit the platform.
When these two squadron are dead, two squadron's of X-wing will
emerge in rapid succession. When these fighters exit the hangar
you will have about 8 or so seconds to kill then while they are
in the "Exit Hangar" mode.
At any point during this mission where you feel you are about
to be overwhelmed, turn tail and head away from the fighters with
your ELS at 0/0. Use the rabbit technique to kill the fighters following
you. (Run away until you are 10 km away, turn around, recharge.
Kill one or two fighters and then run away. Repeat.)
Usually, you will hit the 50,000 points when you have killed the
second full squadron of Z-95s, which is a Top Performance.
You can continue using the rabbit technique to kill the X-wing
squadrons, which will total your points to around 60,000 points.
