Mission Overview

You'll never reach the ICENI in time, so don't bother. You'll be reassigned to stop any enemy ship that comes through the system.

First 2 freighters will enter the system, together with a fighter escort. Needless to say, take out the fighters (GTF Loki I believe) first followed by the freighters (which are an easy target).

Once this job is done a few warships jump in ... also with a fighter escort. Concentrate on the fighters first, once they are blown out of the sky, concentrate on the warships. They should have sustained quite a bit of damage by now (because of the Psamtik), so finishing them off should be easy by now.

Mission Overview

There's a lot to be done in this mission. Quite a lot of Shivan fighters and smaller warships have to be destroyed. Basically you have to take it as it comes. Take out the fighters first, but if you notice that a fighter is a few 1000m away and you're flying past a warship, try to take out the warship first.

Since the warships aren't that big, your hornets (if these are the missiles you picked) do quite a bit of damage (dual fire mode = 8 missiles). Combined with a good old fashioned energy weapon, it will be creamed in no time.

You'll meet 2 Shivan fighters: SF Mara and SF Astaroth. The Mara has good plating and speed but only a reasonable maneuverability. It's also quite big and therefore easy to hit. The Astaroth is more maneuverable and also has a higher speed, but it's fragile. You might miss it a few times, but once you hit it ... it'll be out of the sky in no time.

Ship and loadout

GTW-5a Prometheus (R) Cannon
Missiles:GTM MX-64 Rockeye
GTM MX-6 Tempest Missile


Possibilities:

Ships:None
Guns:None
Missiles:None


Mission Overview

At first everything is very quiet in this mission. All you have to do is follow Zeta 1 until you notice some enemies on your radar. Once that happens, move in to destroy them. You'll encounter some SF Manticores. A little bit later, you'll notice another wing of Manticores. Once they are taken out, continue your patrol.

You'll encounter the NTF Trinity, protect it and the repair team they send to recover it. Once the repair team has jumped in, more Shivan fighters will appear, including: SF Manticores, SF Basilisks and SF Dragons. Fight them off at your best ability, but once the Dragons jump in, the mission is over. The Trinity and the Discovery will be destroyed (they went from 96% health to 0% in a matter of seconds ... don't ask me how). GTVA command will announce that you have to return to base. Do so, or you'll have to deal with 2 wings of enemy Dragons and that usually isn't too healthy.
