Fighter squadron: 70th Blue Lions

Description: The Blue Lions must defend the GTD Bastion as it makes its way to destroy the Epsilon Pegasi-Capella jump node.


With the Bastion's protective task force almost completely destroyed, Allied Command orders the 70th to defend the Bastion as it makes its way to destroy the Epsilon Pegasi jump node to Capella.


A recommended loadout is the GTF Ares or GTF Hercules Mark II armed with the GTW UD-8 Kayser, a bank of Harpoons and a bank of Trebuchets.

Standard procedure in this mission is to use the loadout above, then park next to one of the Aeolus cruisers and blast bombers at long range. This is an effective and tried and true tactic. On higher difficulties, however, the Shivan bombers, especially the Nephilims and Seraphims, will survive several dual Trebuchet hits dead on. For that reason, it may also be advisable to fly intercept in an Erinyes with a UD-8 Kayser and a GTW Subach HL-7.

The Shivan bombers will go after the cruisers first, so assign one protection wing for each cruiser if you want. Some of those cruisers will come back in the last mission, if they survive. Also, do not give loadouts to Beta 2 & Beta 3. They will have a reactor core breach at the beginning of the mission, blowing up in the process.


  • Apparently, if Beta 2 and 3 are removed from the loadout (i.e. they are not given a ship to fly in), they will be brought over to the next mission, flying Ulysses fighters with over 100% hull integrity.
  • Also, the health of the Bastion, Ertanax, Malta, and Templar can change each time you attempt this mission. The Bastion tends to be around 30-40% hull strength, while the three Aeolus cruisers rank around 11-24% hull strength. If you see that at the beginning of the mission that the hull stats for the cruisers or the Bastion is too low, then you can restart the moment you attempt this mission.
