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 jumpnode.


With the Bastion's protective taskforce 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.


Moniter's recommendations: GTF Ares, Trebutchet, Harpoon, UD-8 Kayser

Standard procedure in this mission is to load up with an Ares or Herc II filled up with Trebuchet long range anti-bomber missiles, and with a long range primary bank to take out bombs, 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 Nephilim and Seraphim varieties take several duel Trebuchet hits dead on. For that reason, I prefer to fly intercept in an Erinyes with a Kayser and an HL-7.
