Previous Mission Campaign Walkthrough Next Mission


Fighter squadron:


At roughly 1400 hours a large convoy carrying one of our newly developed shield prototypes was deployed. It was expected that the Shivans would attack the convoy.

The Shivans destroyed the convoy. What the Shivans do not know is that the convoy was a decoy. There were a total of 4 working prototypes, only one of which was destroyed.

You are to take two wings of fighters to escort the three remaining shield prototypes. The Shivans should just think you are just another shipment headed for Beta Cygni. This is not the direct route to Earth, which should divert the Shivans from our true intent.

You are to accompany the freighters until the Vasudans arrive to escort them on the second leg. Do not leave the freighters until they have jumped to the Beta Cygni system.

The Shivans have hit everything sent from this installation. Expect resistance. Many pilots lost their lives today that the chances for success on this mission would be greater. You will succeed. Dismissed.


Let me tell you now, this is a hard mission. First all will be quiet. Then two wings of two Basilisks (Arjuna wing) will jump in. After that the Andromeda, Omega 1-3, and Rho will jump in. The Andromeda will call for assistance as Hammer of Light forces have already damaged it down to the mid thirties. Order Rho to protect Cargo Gamma and ignore the Andromeda's pleas. If you save it you do not receive anything, and it is extremely tough to do anyway. Just let the two wings of Hammer of Light ships toy around with it and then they won't hurt you. Quite soon after the Andromeda is attacked, Krishna wing will arrive. It will attack the cargo. Destroy them quickly. Next will be Rama wing. Destroy them quickly also. Lastly will be in succession two wings of Basilisks. After you dispatch them your Vasudan reinforcements will arrive. They will chat but don't waste time. Target one of the Seth fighters and shoot it. Trust me. Target the other Seth and shoot it too. Ignore Command yelling at you. Shoot the Anubis's if you have time. Omicron 1 will jump in and tell you that the reinforcements are really the Hammer of Light. That is why you should have shot the reinforcements. They will be easy to kill now. After you destroy the Hammer of Light ships stay by the cargo and wait until they reach the jump node and jump out. Then proceed to do the same.
