Mission 3: The Rebel Fleet


Mission 3 starts with our favorite squadron still hunting for the Dominus.  Vargas (flying the RED WIDOW if you notice), Copperhead, and YOU catch up with the Dominus.  In this mission (as you can see in the dialog below) you find that the Dominus has not actually been captured but Captain Nyman of the Dominus has defected (gasp!). 


Phase 1:  Taking on Fighters & 2 destroyers:
First phase of this mission is to work your way thru a squadron of fighters and 2 destroyers.  You will find that this is the first mission where the opposing jets are actually a bit of competition.  They are able to evade your missiles and also can inflict some damage with their own missiles on you.  You will have to work a little harder than in Missions 1 & 2, but they should go down easy enough as long as you aren’t careless.  Once you knock them off, you will proceed to the more dramatic phase 2 of this mission.

Mission 3 will test your skill against ships

Taking him down in a blaze of glory

Phase 2 of Mission:  Confronting the Dominus & her escort fleet:
As we approach the Dominus, you will see that it is escorted by 4 destroyers.  You will have to do double duty in this phase.  You will have to take out the destroyers and in parallel, shoot down any ship-to-ship missiles that the Dominus lobs at your fleet

Missile Away!
