Mission Overview

Since protecting the Corvette is you primary objective, always make sure that you return to it once you've taken out the fighters. That way you are always on time to intercept the next wing of enemy fighters.

First you'll get a wing of Astaroths and Maras to hold off. This shouldn't be too hard.

The next time the Asuras an 2 fighter escorts will jump in. First take out the fighters (Astaroths and Basilisks), since they pose the biggest threat to you (although I wouldn't call a Basilisk a big threat). The Asuras isn't a big to the Corvettes in the beginning (unless it takes you 1 hour to take out the fighters). Once the fighters are goners, fire some hornets at the Asuras, taking it down shouldn't take too long.

The next wings contain of Maras and SB Seraphims, needless to say that the Seraphims, should be engaged first. They are extremely dangerous for the Corvettes, so try to take them out before they can launch their bombs. Proceed with the Maras.

Now the Iblis will jump in, together with a Mara wing. Same procedure as with the Asuras.

Suddenly an unknown ship will appear on radar. Upon investigation you come to the conclusion that it's a destroyer and it will cream the Corvettes no matter what you do. Jump out of the system, once you are told to do so.

Mission 12 - Slaying Ravana

Objectives

Primary objectives:

Secondary Objectives:

Ship and loadout

Default:

Ship:GTB Boanerges
Guns:GTW-5a Prometheus (R) Cannon
Missiles:GTM-4 Hornet Swarm Missile
GTM-12 Cyclops (2x)


Possibilities:

Ships:GTB Medusa
GTB Ursa
Guns:GTW Subach HL-7
GTW Akheton SDG
Missiles:GTM MX-6 Tempest Missile


Mission Overview

I didn't fly this mission with the Boanerges, but with the Medusa. Mainly because of the maneuverability (the boanerges can't even follow a ship if it flew past him at 1 mps - making it a terrible ship for dogfights).

Although your job is to take out the Ravana, don't forget about the fighters either. If you let them alive too long, all of your wingmates will be dead and they will all come after you - so this is a definite no, no. Before heading for the Ravana take out the Basilisks (they are closer than the Ravana).

Now head for the Ravana and launch your Cyclops missiles at close range (eg. 0.5 km - it takes a while to acquire a lock. If you launch from too far, the Cyclops can be destroyed before impact. If you launch too close, you'll get hit by the blast radius.) I tend to target the sensors or weapons systems, first (whatever the bombs can hit from my current fly path).

Once the cyclops' have been launched (dual fire mode) occupy yourself with the fighters again. It's wise to engage the fighters away from the Ravana (if it starts shooting it's flak guns, your shields and hull might get creamed), but this isn't always possible. If you retreat to engage the fighters, head for the Kehnmu (Corvette), since it'll help to destroy the fighters. This is also a good place to rearm yourself, because of the protection the Corvette gives. Once you've taken out the fighters that were bugging you, head back for the Ravana. This will avoid getting a bunch of fighters behind your tail while paying enough attention to crippling the Ravana.

Repeat until the mission is finished.

PS. If you want to fire the Cyclops 2x you have to keep in mind that it needs a reload time of 20 seconds. If you have 2 banks with Cyclops missiles, just change the bank you are firing from to speed things up.

Mission 14 - The Sixth Wonder

Objectives

Primary objectives:

Secondary Objectives:

Ship and loadout

Default:

Ship:GTF Perseus
Guns:GTW Subach HL-7
GTW-5a Prometheus (R) Cannon
Missiles:GTM-4 Hornet Swarm Missile
GTM MX-6 Tempest Missile


Possibilities:

Ships:None
Guns:GTW Akheton SDG
Missiles:GTM MX-64 Rockeye
GTM-43a Stiletto II
GTM-19 Harpoon


Mission Overview

First take out the GTF Hercules', followed by the Cato. Once the bombers jump (GTB Zeus) in redirect yourself to these and let the Cato alone for a while. Since you have to protect the station, you have to act swiftly. Intercept the bombers as fast as you can, if they are able to launch missiles take them out first and afterwards the bombers. Once the first wing of bombers is destroyed, go back and finish off the Cato.

By that time a second wing of bombers will fly in, followed shortly by the Hawkwood. Concentrate on the bombers (and bombs) for now, only if there are no more bombers left, go back to take on the Hawkwood. Don't just fire to do damage, try to destroy weaponry or subsystems. The same rule applies here, once more bombers fly in, divert your attention. Eventually the GTVA Colossus will jump in to finish the Hawkwood (that's why it's important to take on it's weapons and subsystems - so it can only do minimal damage to the station/transports - the Colossus will destroy it for you)

Mission 15 - Into the Maelstrom

Objectives

Primary objectives:

Secondary Objectives:

Bonus objectives:

Ship and loadout

Default:

Ship:GTF Perseus
Guns:GTW Subach HL-7
GTW-5a Prometheus (R) Cannon
Missiles:GTM-4 Hornet Swarm Missile
GTM-19 Harpoon


Possibilities:

Ships:GTF Loki
GTF Ulysses
Guns:None
Missiles:GTM MX-64 Rockeye
GTM MX-6 Tempest Missile


Mission Overview

Head for the flashing red dots in the radar and take out a few sentry guns. Don't keep on destroying sentry guns, since there are bombers flying towards the convoy. It's more important to intercept them. Once the bombers (and bombs) are destroyed, take on the fighters and then concentrate your fire on the remaining sentry guns.

Nothing will happen for quite a long time now. Suddenly some fighters and the Maelstrom will jump in ... first try to take out the beam weapon of the Maelstrom, it does a lot of damage to the convoy if you don't take it out. This is one of the crucial factors to complete the primary objective. Once that's done, kill the fighters (if any are left) and make scrap out of the Maelstrom (with the help of the Deimos and the remaining fighters).
