Operation "nerf herder"

Hello I will be guiding you through your mission...Operation "nerf herder"

The Empire has set up a garrison on a planet that lies along one of our most crucial trading routes. This garrison has set up a small defense net consisting of space mines, turboiods (astroids with turbolasers set up for defense), and even two defense platforms. They have an unknown number of TIEs and reportedly there is even a squadron of TIE interceptors. We must clear the trade route by taking out these defenses and penitrating their garrison on the ground and destroying it.

You have been chosen for this mission not because you were the best pilots but because you were the only 2 squadrons we could take from the front lines. You have been given 2 complete squadrons of X-Wings to pilot. All are outfitted with a full complement of torpedos to use against the space defenses.

Once you have taken out the space defenses you will dock with the Frigate Big Bertha and she will take you down to the ground to take on the garrison. Now go to your ships because you are scheduled to launch in t minus twelve minutes.

May the force be with you all!!!

X-wings launch from the Big Bertha meeting no resistance until the reach the asteroid belt...then TIE fighters sping upon them...thankfully the X-Wings had modified shieldsthat could even withstand a medium class ateroid crash...

As the 3 squadrons of TIEs rush to close the gape between them and the X-wings three are hit by nearly invisible asteroids. 2 blow up because of critical hits and 1 is badly wrecked...


*side note*
The Big Bertha is a Nebulan B frigate which was stolen from the Imperial Navy. Her captian, Hans Ullrich (me...I may as well participate in this), has modified her to cary more weapons and fighters. Now she is nearly a match for a Mk. II Victory Star Destroyer...

"Scythe Leader, this is Green Leader. I just lost 2 and 7 and 8 is damaged. Two flight is down to only 2 ships. I could use some back up over here!!!"

*i swerve hard right to miss an oncoming astroid. I then role around to pick up two ties tailing my wingman, Green 2.*

"I got you 2! Break hard to port on my signal. Now!"

*As 2 turns the ties overshoot and one crashes into an astroid. I bring the other into my sights and when the hud turns green i press the triiger unleasing a burst of energy that hits the tie right in the cockpit. The ship immediately burts into flames and explodes. I turn to see another tie explode under the fire of 3 flight.*

"Nice shot 6! Keep it up, we've got a ways to go."

Green Squadron continues to dogfight through the TIEs. I, Green 9, fry a TIE just as it is about to take out the Green Leader. "Got your back, chief!" I yell to him.


God Bless America

When pursuing X-wings down trenches, check your mirrors.

Never buy a Sierra game. They don't care about the customer.

WEll, I guess it's only me and my men. Eta Squadron, hold positions. Time to unleash a little secret.

A star destroyer appears, unleashing 20 escort transports, and 5 legions worth of Tie defenders and interceptors. The escort transports start dropping mines, special mines designed to look on rebel ship exhaust signatures.

All troops, move in to attack.Eta Squadron, follow my lead.

The squadron flies by tiger squadron, taking out a fighter, watching it hit a asteroid, exploding it into a thousand pieces.

Sorry Tie Guy is right...you can't add any ships that large...we want to make it at least a bit posible for the 2 squadrons of X-Wings and Big Bertha to win...I'll add any ships if needed...Thank You

You can't do that! Only fergie can add more ships to the game. Besides, thats not fair. Anyways, fighters aren't measured in legions, they are measured in wings (72 ships)

So, i advise you to edit your post accordingly

BTW Hanibalscipio. Fergie said that there were only 2 squadrons, and it has already been said that they are Scythe and Green squadrons. So, you may need to edit your post two. You can be one of my wingman. I'll give you 3 flight if you want it. You can be Green 9.

I took care of it Tie Guy -darthfergie

On board the Big Berth Captain Ullrich watches the battle from a little ways out side the asteroid field...

"Lieutenant, Have you found out where those turboids are?"

"Sir we have located 12 in the ateroid field right now. We are certain that more are hidden the ateroids."

"Fine then blast them"

"You would have us come within their turboid range sir?"

*glares at the lieutenant*
"I gave you an order, carry it out or I will!!!"

"Yes Sir"

*The Big Bertha's sublight drives engage to come into range. It fires several blasts into the known turboids blowing them apart. But it also attracted the attention of other turboids and the ship started taking hits...for now they were just reflecting on the shields*

"Commander to Squadrons. I want Scythe Squadron to take on the TIEs that are in range (so far only a little over a squadron is seen by Rebels) Green see if you can take out some turboids for me. Take the the plan B route through the asteriiods. Standard search and destroy."

*BTW, there is no plan B route for those of you wondering...but it just sounds good *

"Ok, Green group follow me, we're taking out those turboids. 3 flight take the left side, 2 flight take the right, i'll run right up the middle. Use your topedos, try to get under their fire. I'm sending you the targeting info now."

*i turn off in a new heading and switch my weapons over to torps. I see that the turboid are busy firing at the Big Bertha so i have a cleanshot. I line up the astroid and pull the trigger. A bright blue streak travels towards the target.*

"Torpedos away! Fire your torps and go in for strafing runs!"

*I switch back to lasers and link my fire. I fire off several shots at a nearby turboid and it explodes into flames. I see that almost everyone hit their target*

"Good shooting guys, lets get these last turrets."

Green squadron sucessfully eleminates 9 turboids. Then almost similtaniously 14 hidden turboid batteries open up on the aproching Green Squadron. Green squadron sucessfully dodges the first volley...

"All fighters break port now! We've got enemy turboids right in front of us! We can hide in the atroids while we set up for a run. Big Bertha, we could use some cover! I'll take 1 flight in first and we'll fire a torp each. 2 and 3 flights come in after me and clean up the rest with lasers. Pull off after the first pass."

*As i turn my fighter around to set up for a pass i see the rest of the squadron doing likewise. *

"Ok, one flight, follow my lead. Here we go."

* i switch back to torps and as soon as i come around i find a target, lock on, and fire. I see 3 more blue streaks fly past my viewport. I switch to lasers and find an open target. I give off several quick bursts before i pull out and underneath the astroids coming out on their rear. I quickly look back to see several red shafts of light and multiple explosions*

"Good work guys, but we still have a few turboids left."

meanwhile it looks as though the interceptor squadron has spoted the battle going on and are rushing to the scene...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
*The Big Bertha starts to concentrate more fire on the Turboids hidden in the asteroid field*

*A few are hit but many more still remain firing leathal lasers at the X-Wings and the Big Bertha*

Eta squadron, let's do a pass on green squadron. Unleash an attack on that squadron in 5....4...3...2...1.. fire!


**************************************************
don't I get a little advantage? there are 3 rebel squardons vs one imperial interceptor squadron. That is why I called in reinforcements. Also note I called them at the beginning of this.


oh, and sorry, didn't realize there were only 2 squads. Attacking an imperial area like that needs usually more ships.
**************************************************
You have several squadrons don't worry...I'm not hanging you out to dry...And Rebs...I'm not hanging you out either...this battle is up in the air -darthfergie

**************
What? TIEs don't have any secret missles or any of that.

As for needing them, there are many TIE Squadrons, only 1 Int sqaudron, so the X-wings are outnumbered, not the TIEs.

This is also why everyone in these things should play on the same side. That way, no one has to die and pulling off strange stunts doesn't cause huge arguements over who died and so on...
**************

"We got TIEs coming in at 3 o'clock!!! 2 flight stay on the turboids, 1 and 3 flights follow me verse the ties. Blast it, where is Scythe squadron!!!"

Avery: Almost there...Gotcha!

*Avery fires his lasers, turning a Tie into a ball of flame...*

in the game x-wing vs tie fighter, the imps had advanced concussion missiles. WE'll go down to normal conc missiles to please you though.

On rebel com channel: this song is played:
It starts with one thing
I don't know why
It doesn't even matter how hard you try
keep that in mind
I designed this rhyme
To explain in due time
All I know
Time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
Watch it count down to the end of the day
The clock ticks life away
It's so unreal
Didn't look out below
Watch the time go right out the window
Trying to hold on, but didn't even know
Wasted it all just to watch you go
I kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when

I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

One thing, I don't know why
It doesn't even matter how hard you try
keep that in mind
I designed this rhyme, to remind myself how
I tried so hard
In spite of the way you were mocking me
Acting like I was part of your property
Remembering all the times you fought with me
I'm surprised it got so (far)
Things aren't the way they were before
You wouldn't even recognize me anymore
Not that you knew me back then
But it all comes back to me (in the end)
You kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when I

I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
They are all distracted listening to the song...
haha!

While the Rebels are distracted a large asteroid blows up near Green Squadron and out comes a Squadron of modified TIE Fighters...(these have shields with slightly reduced speed)
*************
"This is the Big Bertha to Green I'll start peeling those turboids off you and I'll assign a few laser turrets to those Interceptors that have REALLy been pestering you.

"Finaly we are within range...FIRE ALL BATTERIES!!!"
*Large streaks of light speed toward the asteroid belt, immediatly blowing several asteroids to itty bitty pieces*
**************

*two squadrons of regular TIE fighters lift off from the garrison on the planet*

"We should be there in 12 minutes. So sit tight and hold on."

"Ok, Greens, all remaining craft enage those advanced TIEs! It'll take more shots to take them down, but they aren't as manuverable or fast anymore."

*I move to attack the oncoming TIEs amnd see that my squadron has done likewise*

"Hold your fire till my mark.........mark!!!"

*The deadly scarlet shafts of light fly towards the TIEs. They overwhelm the first wave of the attack, but the second and third still come*

"Nice shooting, now take your targets and go!"

*I pick up the first TIE in my area. I line up the TIE in my target and fire several shots. Two hit but don't penetrate the shields. I pull around in a loop manuver to bring me back onto the TIE. I let off rapid bursts as i come around and a few happen to hit and penetrate the shields, but they only clipped the solar panel. The TIE flew off in an uncontrolled spin and crashed into a turboid, damaging it. Just then i pick up a new signal*

"Green and Scythe squdrons, i read reinforcements coming from the garrison. I have two eyball squads on my scopes. But they shouldn't be here for another 12 minutes or so. Do you think we can preapre a little welcome for them?"

*In the advanced TIE squadron*
"I've found Green leader...he had a bit to much com traffic and my comp was able to decypt the frequency..."
*sends all imperials the code and frequency*
*multiple com clicks indicate their affirmation*
"I'm on the leader and his wings...2, 4 come with me"
*they stik on the tail of Green ans his wingmen...all of the sudden the fighters execute a blindingly fast manuever that brings them in the kill zone of Green Leader, but also destroys on of Greens wingmen*

"What, how did they get back there?!? Scythes, i could really use some help back here!!! I can't shake 'em!"

*I try to preform shake the TIEs by doing a quick turn then a deceleration and start up, and one of the TIEs flies by, but the other one stay on me. I see two more form up on me. I decide to head into the deep areas of the astroid field. I doubt that these TIEs have heavy particle shielding, so i head for the thickest part. I swoop in and out, avoiding the deadly chunks of Rocks. My ship shakes as i am hit with a small astroid. I see that my three pursuers' numbers have dropped down to 2 as one is hit by a nearly invisible astroid coming out from behind a bigger one. I push up my speed up and try simply to stay on my highest attention and use my quickest reflexes. When i manage to successfully come out of the otehr side and then around to where the fleet is, i see that one TIE managed to follow me all the way through. I wipe the sweat off of my face and prepare for a manuver when i see Green 12 rce through the space directly behind me and and the TIE that was there erupt into flames*

"Thanks for the assist, 12!"

"Thanks Big Bertha. 3 flight, can i get some help over here, these guys seem to have shunted their shields, you can take 'em out easy"

*as i see the two x-wings pull up behind me i see the TIE start to shoot. the first few bolts miss, and i dive hard and port*

"Now 2 flight!!!"

*Their red lasers penetrate 2 of the TIES, killing one and incapicitating the other. The 2 remaining TIEs break and the X-eings criss-cross as they stay on the tail of each of the remaining TIEs, letting loose deadly red bolts of energy*

"Thanks for the assist guys. We don't have long before those two TIE squads come in from the base. 1 flight form up on me, we are going after the squints chasing the Scythes. 2 and 3 flights keep on these 4 remaing TIEs."

*I see the squints flying in formation, but with several holes. Then i see one x-wing explode. I target the squint who fired the shots and let off my lasers continuously. One shot, by chance perhaps, caught him in the rear on his pod. A small explosion occurred and when it cleared i saw that the int was dead in space, i must have hit is ion drives. Another two of my bolts fried off half of his starboard solar panel, and he was slowly dirfting back towards the garrison. My wingman had fired their shots too, and since we had the suprise element, and the fact that the squints were flying in formation, they each managed to knock off a TIE, and their numbers were down by a half.*

"Great shooting guys, now take your targets and go!."

*i pull around behind one of the scattering squints and fire my shots, but they all miss right. The pilot pulls into a large climb, but i put my engines on 2/3 power and get ahead of him in the climb, though behind him in distance. I line it up, and release my deadly bolts of energy, they impact square into the pod, and the int explodes and vanishes instantly. I notice that green 3 and 4 also got their targets as well, that left only one, and Scythe Leader was closing in on it.*

"Greens, report in."

Green 9: We took care of those TIEs for ya boss

"Thanks, now, lets form up and prepare to meet those TIEs from the garrison. They'll be here in 2 minutes. We are going to try to overwhelm them. I want 5 and 6 you target the leader, fire a continuous stream. The rest of you take a target. Wait for my mark to fire. Got it?"

missing man formation... execute NOW!!!!!

One TIE pulls a strafing run on green squadron, with only half its original squadron. Eta Squadron has lost half its TIEs, if only those advanced would get here soon...

THey're going for the reinforcements, get there before them!

***********
Didn't you read my post? Because you were flying in that formation, my squadron destroyed all but 1 of your Ints, and that was all of the ints. You only had one squadron. All they have left now are those reinforcements and maybe some turboids.

Also, your dead in space, you can't move, or fire, or anything, just drift.

"Greens...Scythes...We have three assault platforms lauching behind those TIEs...looks like they are armed with fast fire lasers (anti-fighter defense) and two turbolasers...they are lightly shielded to if we can put enough shot in 'em we can take them down.."
***************
*in the aseroids field the last of the turboids starts to fire at the Greens that accidentally wandered back into range unknowingly...Green lasers streak from the turboids and catch an X-Wing blasting it to oblivion...*

"Greens back off from those turboids they have done enough damage as it is"

*Big Bertha concentrates fire on the turboids. Three of the hulking cannons explode with only two remaining. But they were out of place and could do nothing to stop the oncoming Rebels*

Scythe- 7 X-Wings
Green- 8 X-Wings

sorry, let me rewrite my previous posts:

Missing man, execute! Hey wait! no one to execute! Guess I had better do it myself! in one pass, half of green squadron is decimated. Eta 1 is still prime!
uh oh, won't start!

lemme try again! angangangangangangang (sound of a bad engine starting)

wow, it started...

Better stop them before they get the reinforcements... It may be the end.....
******************************
here come the CHISS!!!! (just kidding!)

(good cliffhanger eh?)

are the reinforcements phantom fighters (rebel assault 2?)
no just regular TIEs with expert pilots...

Hey, look out! ITS BIG BETHA! NO no, not a woman! That big ship! That's it, it's mine! The interceptor goes full speed (or what is full speed) into the bridge of the frigate, It shakes and explosion rocks the ship... severe damage is caused... but it is hanging on by a thread... May my sacrifice be a good one... that is the end for me!

you can be a leader of the elites if you want heavyarms... -darthfergie

Ferg, i thought my squadron took out all of the Modified TIEs
Pm me the post about it and I'll modify the modified TIEs
********

"Thanks Big Bertha. Ok, all remaining fighters pull into attack position. On my mark i want everyone to fire continuously for 3 seconds at the TIEs and then pull break and engage your targets. I want all of 1 flight to target the lead TIE. Watch out, these guys are good, but they still don't have shields. Use your wingman and team up on them. Do not engage the assault gunboats if they come into range. Just worry about the fighters, let the Big Bertha take care of them. Got that Big Bertha, you've gotta cover us."

*i pull up straight in front of the oncoming TIEs and see both squdrons of fighters do likewise. I wait anxiously for them to come into range. I hear my Switch, my R2 unit, beep that they would be coming into range in five seconds. 5.....4....3.....2....1*

"FIRE!!!..........Now take your targets and go!"

*i see several explosions in the distance, and i noticed that of the 3 X-wings targeting the lead fighter, and single bolt strucj the TIE. As he swerved to avoid the fire he was hit with a stray shot that sent him spiraling into the astroid field where his ship exploded. I pulled down hard to engage a fighter flying by. Since we had an odd humber of ships left, i got stuck without a wingman. I pulled up out out of m turn behind the fighter, but i couldn't get a good shot at him. These guys are good*

"This is the Big Bertha I copy your request for cover...we'll try to but we just got his in the engines...our engineers are working to fix it as fast as they can...but until then fall back a little closer to our position so we can cover you properly"
****************
"This is Commander Garret of Garrison #11850034 we are requesting you to give up and surrender. You are out numbered."

*as this comes over Green leader's com system a targeting lock alarm rings in his cockpit...It seems in all the confusion of the battle 3 TIEs from the 85th have locked onto Green's tail...He immediatly jukes, but even as he does his fighter's shielding is hit...luckly the lasers were not able to blast through his shields, but that does not mean the 2nd and 3rd blast will be reflected by the shields...he had to think of something fast*

"Sir, We just can't shake these guys!!! WE NEED HELP!!!"

"Switch, all shields aft!!!!!!!"

*the second shot hit on the reingforced shields, but did not penetrate while the third shot missed wide. I had too think of something quick. Just while i was thinking that i saw Green 9 slash through the TIE formation, drilling right through a TIE with his lasers, and scattering the remaining two. One broke left, or right. He pulled around to engage the one of on the right, and i swung back to target the one on the left. As i pulled out of my turn and loop i saw the fighter in my sight just for a second and i fired two quick shots. Both missed wide. I turned to follow the TIE and i managed to get behind it. He feigned a climb and then dove sharply into a loop. I, meanwhile, pulled up into a loop that took me up, as i came out of the loop i fired off a continuous stream of shots, knowing he should be coming out of his loop in my line of fire. As i turned around i saw the TIE for the blink of an eye before it exploded and i flew through the remaining debris with a jolt.*

"9, report in"

Nine: Still here boss

"Thanks for the assist back there, but where's 10?"

Nine: We lost her

"Oh....well, form up on me then, your my wingmate now."

"LUEITENANT!!! HAVE WE FINISHED REPAIRING THE ENGINES YET?!?!?"

"ummm...no sir...the engineers are trying their hardest sir"

"I don't like taking one from Skywalker, but 'DO OR DO NOT THERE IS NO TRY' YOU NUMBSKULL!!!"

85th leader here, go with the 4 way crisscross now! the fighters go in a huge swinging x formation, confusing the x-wings.
X wing comm channel:

What are they doing?
How the hell should I know? keep on their tails!
one guy snaps: Oh my god, they are gonna kill us ! THey're gonna kill us!
NO they won't! Shut up and fly!
NOOOOO!!!!!!!
The pilot veers off from on he fighters' tails
Look out you fool!!!!!!
Green leader, we lost two, Sir Snapsalot died.
