There is no briefing. This mission is a scramble
- Verdun Nav
- Wave 1
- 9 Sartha
- Wave 1
As you jump into Warsaw, the battle has already begun. TCS Verdun is being attacked and your job is to defend it from further harm. You fly a Rapier in this mission. It has much better shields than anything you’ve flown before as well as being maneuverable and fast. If you rescued Sparrow in the Prologue your wingmen are Sparrow and Longshot, if not, Spoons and Sparrow.
Fifteen seconds after you arrive at the Verdun the action begins. The first wave consists of nine Sartha and nine Drakhri. Neither of these fighters carry torpedoes so you should let the other friendly fighters take care of them.
It is recommended to stick close to the Verdun so that when torpedo bombers do appear you can place yourself between them and the Verdun quickly.
Seventy-five seconds after arrival, six Krants and three Grikath appear at the edge of the nav point. The Grikaths target is the Verdun. They should be your primary targets.
One minute after the previous wave, three Kamekhs and six Jalkehi appear. The Kamekhs target is the Verdun, they now should be your primary targets.
You must save either the Verdun or the Sao Paolo (in Episode 3 - Winning Mission 4 - Destroyer Rescue) to stay on the winning path in Episode 4.
