ACT 2, MISSION 7

Fighter squadron: 203rd Scorpions

Description: The 203rd and Tatenen destroy a Shivan gas-mining operation.


Background

The Psamtik deploys the Tatenen, a Sobek-class corvette, and multiple wings from the 203rd to destroy a Shivan gas mining operation.

Walkthrough

A recommended loadout is the GVF Serapis armed with the GTW Maxim, GTW Prometheus S and two banks of GTM Tornados.

You have to cruise the nebula searching for Rahu-class miners and Shivan sentry guns. Destroying the miners is your primary objective. The nebula will severely limit your sight and sensor range, so you have to find the miners on your own. When you encounter any hostiles, use the GTW Maxim against the miners and the GTM Harpoons against the fighters. You can achieve a secondary goal by destroying the sentries.

The Junit, a Setekh-class AWACS can provide you long-range sensors. You can take advantage of this and destroy the miners. After you accomplish the primary goal, the Tatenen comes under attack by Shivan bombers. Rush back to get some kills and when a large Shivan vessel jumps in, hit your thrusters and get out of its firing range. You have no chance to defend the Tatenen. Jump out after the Vasudan corvette goes down.

Tips

  • You can order the Tatenen to attack the miners. Order all wings to defend the corvette and the mission is a breeze.
  • Your wingmen will die very fast flying Serapis fighters. Put them in something sturdier, like a Tauret or even a Horus, if you want to get real work out of them.
  • You can also order the Junit to attack the miners. However, the weak firepower provided by the Junit isn't much of a boon.
