4 Lamprey
Wave 2
2 Red Manta
5 Moray
3 Stingray
Wave 3
3 Manta
9 Moray
4 Red Manta
3 Lamprey

Notes

  • Defending the station is easy enough. Just don't stray too far from Cerberus. The third wave will be from the jump point that Cerberus has just come through and those bugs will head straight for it. By the time the Cerberus calls for help, it may have sustained heavy damage so watch your radar. When you see new ships appear, check your NAV map. If the new bugs are near Cerberus, go help it straight away.
  • Don't forget, you are in one of those lovely Wasps. Boost as soon as you can towards the station, load up the Swarmers and let rip on the bombers.

    Outcome

    Success / Failure go to Krieger 2.

    Krieger 2 : Tactical Reposition

    Primary Objectives Escort and defend the Cerberus
    Secondary Objectives Defend friendly bombers
    Bonus Objectives None
    Your Ship "Black" Vampire
    Wingmen Amazon, Spyder
    Other Friendly Ships Bravo wing (Devastators) : Stiletto (wing leader), Zero, Maestro
    Briefing Friendly forces in this system report an immense blockade presence leading up to the Proxima jump point. We will eliminate the alien capital ships one by one. Our first step is a tactical repositioning for Cerberus. Escort the cruiser along this route and defend against any hostiles.

    NAV 3
    2 Ray

    2 Devil Ray

    Notes

  • There are a hell of a lot of bugs on this mission. Be sure to use your missiles to best effect, but try not to find yourself running out when you need them most. It's a careful balance.
  • The bombers will do their bit destroying the capships. You just do your bit and keep the fighters and turrets off their backs.

    Outcome

    Success / Failure go to Krieger 3.

    Krieger 3 : Carrier Assault One

    Primary Objectives Eliminate all alien carrier gun turrets
    Eliminate all alien carrier missile turrets
    Secondary Objectives None
    Bonus Objectives Eliminate 75% of alien fighters
    Your Ship "Black" Vampire
    Wingmen Amazon, Zero
    Other Friendly Ships Bravo wing (Vampires) : Spyder (wing leader), Stiletto, Maestro
    Briefing Alien fighter presence in this system is extremely heavy. Sweep this NAV route of all alien fighters. You will come across the alien carrier during this patrol. Eliminate the carrier's turret defenses in anticipation of a subsequent bomber strike.
    NAV 1
    Wave 1
    4 Manta
    6 Moray
    Wave 2
    6 Manta
    8 Moray
    NAV 2
    2 Triton

    5 Moray
    Three waves of Squid, Manta, Moray unless carrier is destroyed.
    Between NAV 2 and Cerberus
    3 Manta
    4 Moray
    1 Devil Ray

    Notes

  • Don't forget the primary objective is to destroy all of the carrier's turrets. If the autopilot light comes on before you have done this, try not to hit the autopilot until the job is done. It will make the next mission a lot easier.

    Outcome

    Success / Failure go to Krieger 4.

    Krieger 4 : Carrier Erasure

    Primary Objectives Eliminate Carrier
    Secondary Objectives Engage and destroy fighters
    Eliminate alien transports
    Bonus Objectives Eliminate 50% of alien fighters
    Your Ship "Black" Devastator
    Wingmen Amazon, Zero
    Other Friendly Ships Bravo wing (Vampires) : Spyder (wing leader), Stiletto, Maestro
    3 Piranhas, 6 Excaliburs at NAV 1
    Briefing There is no briefing before this mission. It is a scramble.
    NAV 1
    Wave 1
    1 Leviathan
    2 Triton
    5 Squid
    5 Moray
    5 Lamprey
    Wave 2
    3 Manta
    3 Lamprey
    3 Squid
    Plus waves of Lamprey and Manta until the carrier is destroyed
    NAV 2
    2 Orca
    2 Triton
    4 Barracuda
    5 Lamprey
    5 Manta
    Waves of Lamprey, Stingray, and Moray until capships are destroyed.

    Notes

  • Since you are flying a Devastator, you don't need to worry about wasting torpedoes so much. You can always use your Plasma gun to destroy capships, which is just as well considering the number of capships in this mission.
  • Perhaps the enemy forces at NAV 2 make up for the easy NAV 1. Or perhaps those bugs are waiting to get their asses kicked. Either way, go get them. Go straight for the capships and you'll have less fighters to face. Shooting fighters won't get the job done.

    Outcome

    Success / Failure go to Krieger 5.

    Krieger 5 : Reposition Battery

    Primary Objectives Escort and defend the Cerberus
    Secondary Objectives Eliminate alien bombers
    Eliminate alien fighters
    Bonus Objectives Eliminate 50% of alien fighters
    Eliminate 75% of alien bombers
    Your Ship "Black" Devastator
    Wingmen Amazon, Spyder
    Other Friendly Ships Bravo wing (Vampires) : Stiletto (wing leader), Zero, Maestro
    Briefing Multi-stage assault tactics have proven effective against the alien blockade. We are going to attempt another multi-stage strike on a second alien star-ship in this system. The enemy vessel is positioned to block our path into Proxima and is most likely guarding more capital ships in and around a nearby jump point. In order to punch through this obstacle, Cerberus will need to be repositioned. Provide cover for Cerberus along this NAV route.
    NAV 1
    Wave 1
    1 Comm Facility
    4 Ray
    3 Red Manta
    7 Squid
    Wave 2
    3 Moray
    3 Squid
    Wave 3
    1 Red Manta
    4 Skate
    4 Moray
    Wave 4
    5 Moray
    NAV 2
    Wave 1
    2 Triton
    1 Red Manta
    3 Moray
    5 Lamprey
    Wave 2
    1 Red Manta
    6 Moray
    Wave 3
    4 Manta
    4 Stingray
    NAV 3
    Wave 1
    3 Moray
    2 Red Manta
    5 Stingray
    Wave 2
    2 Devil Ray
    4 Moray

    Notes

  • Ever wondered how the bugs knock where you're going and when? The answer is at NAV 1. A nice comm facility. Put it out of business. The best place to attack it from is above the large curves part, destroying each antenna in turn.
  • And while you're putting the bugs out of business, you might as well deprive them of a few supplies by destroying the Tritons at NAV 2 with your remaining torpedoes, using your Plasma gun if you run out (which you probably will unless you eliminate the turrets).

    Outcome

    Success / Failure go to Krieger 6.

    Krieger 6 : Turrets Swipe

    Primary Objectives Eliminate all carrier gun turrets
    Eliminate all carrier missile turrets
    Secondary Objectives None
    Bonus Objectives Eliminate 50% of alien fighters
    Your Ship "Black" Vampire
    Wingmen Amazon, Zero
    Other Friendly Ships Bravo wing (Vampires) : Spyder (wing leader), Stiletto, Maestro
    Briefing There is no briefing before this mission. It is a scramble.
    NAV 1
    Wave 1
    1 Leviathan
    4 Barracuda
    5 Moray
    5 Manta
    Wave 2
    4 Manta
    4 Lamprey
    Wave 3
    4 Squid
    4 Moray
    Wave 4
    4 Squid
    4 Moray

    Notes

  • This mission isn't particularly difficult. It would probably help if you destroyed all of the fighters first, then went for the carrier's turrets.
  • Take out everything on the carrier except the bridge, engine and launchers which you can't take out anyway. If you have to eject before taking out everything, you will have a lot more to contend with when it comes to destroying the carrier.

    Outcome

    Success / Failure go to Krieger 7.

    Krieger 7 : Final Blows

    Primary Objectives Eliminate carrier
    Destroy any other alien capships
    Secondary Objectives Eliminate fighters defending carrier
    Bonus Objectives Eliminate 50% of alien fighters
    Your Ship "Black" Devastator
    Wingmen Amazon, Stiletto
    Other Friendly Ships Bravo wing (Vampires) : Spyder (wing leader), Zero, Maestro
    Briefing There is no briefing before this mission. It is a scramble.
    NAV 1
    Wave 1
    1 Leviathan
    1 Hydra
    5 Moray
    5 Squid
    Wave 2
    2 Manta
    3 Lamprey
    1 Squid
    1 Devil Ray
    Wave 3
    1 Squid
    2 Moray
    3 Lamprey
    1 Manta

    Notes

  • The extra waves appear if the Hydra and Leviathan are still alive at the point which the waves would be spawned. Take out the capships quickly, and you won't have to deal with them.
  • Since the Hydra still has all of it's turrets, you may want to try knocking a load out with your Dragonfly missiles and may some Mosquito missiles as well. You have a large missile load, so use that to your advantage.

    Outcome

    Success / Failure go to Krieger 8.

    Krieger 8 : Path To Proxima

    Primary Objectives Escort and defend the Cerberus
    Secondary Objectives Engage and destroy fighters
    Bonus Objectives Eliminate 50% of alien fighters
    Your Ship "Black" Vampire
    Wingmen Zero, Maestro
    Other Friendly Ships Bravo wing (Devastators) : Spyder (wing leader), Stiletto, Amazon
    3 Vampires and 3 Shrikes at NAV 1.
    Briefing Intel believes that the aliens are using the binary star system of Proxima to fuel a new wormhole device. Confed Science Division has deduced that this second wormhole in Proxima, once opened, will remain open until the stars' energy has been depleted. We must reinforce the scattered Confed ships active in Proxima and eliminate the alien presence. Lead Cerberus along this NAV route to the Proxima jump point.
    NAV 1
    Wave 1
    1 Orca
    1 Hydra
    6 Manta
    Wave 2
    6 Stingray
    Wave 3
    4 Squid
    4 Manta
    Wave 4
    4 Barracuda
    Wave 5
    1 Leviathan
    3 Red Manta
    3 Stingray
    3 Manta
    Then infinite waves of 1 Devil Ray and 2 Manta until carrier is destroyed

    Notes

  • Lots of capships. Ltos of fighters. It's just as well someone sent some help your way. Defend everything Confed because you'll appreciate the extra firepower.
  • Once the Leviathan arrived, take out the Red Mantas and the Stingrays as quickly as possible otherwise they'll head straight for the Cerberus. After that, just defend the bombers long enough for them to destroy the carrier. When all is done, you're on your way to the final episode : Finishing Stroke.

    Outcome

    Success / Failure go to Proxima 1a.

    Comment on a mission

    Submitted by : jackthecoach
    Mission : reposition battery
    Comments : the info on this mission is rubbish. first, you are in a vampire not a devastator. second. what happened to the 4 barracuda that turn up in nav1 with a manta?


    Submitted by : JACKTHECOACH
    Mission : turrets swipe
    Comments : the info is wrong here too. the mission appears to be infinite waves of fighters, so, pick on a wave that is weak, ie morays and squid, send your wingman after them, go for the turrets yourself. get missile turrets first.

    Mission : Krieger 8: Path to Proxima
    Comments : Weird: pay attention to the allied Vampires. They have 4 tachyon cannons and 2 ion cannons.


    Submitted by : Ex-Commando
    Mission : All
    Comments : Wow. After many years I played WC1 to WCP all the way through and it got progressively harder and crazy all the way through. But this expansion pack really is rather insane! Missions have so many enemies. But then again its very challenging and lots of fun. Is it just me, or are many of the numbers of fighters and star ships in 40-50% of all these missions wrong?

    Mission : Krieger 6 : Turrets Swipe
    Comments : Forget the info on that mission, I believe none of the enemy numbers are correct. There will be infinite waves of fighters in miscellaneous configurations in this mission. Go for the turrets and missile launchers right away, break off only if a fighter picks on you. After all turrets are destroyed, destroy the remaining fighters and autopilot out.
