Fighter squadron: 82nd Nighthawks

Description: Our hero must scan the subsystems of the Hades in a desperate attempt to find a weakness.



You have Alpha and Beta wings of your own choosing (already deployed), along with Delta and Epsilon as backup.

You're going to have to scan a lot of subsystems for the most objectives possible. At the minimum, you need the Sensors (the nose), Communications, Weapons (on the tower), and Navigation. For the most objectives, you need to scan only one engine (behind the tower) and the fighterbay (on the underside). Be prepared to take on a lot of Lokis.

Then you will have the order to return to the Herschel (it's cloaked so the Hades cannot shoot it, so a Pharos buoy comes in its place). Defend it when you get the order, and after that's through, the Hope will come in and suicide-ram the Hades, knocking out its engines. The Hades escapes through the Deneb jump node. You will get clearance to return to base.


  • The GTSC Herschel was added specifically so that its coming under attack would draw the player into an ideal spot to watch the PVD Hope.
  • Remember a Monster in the Mist? This mission is the same sort of idea.
