| An Imperial Nebulon-B Frigate
has been ambushed by Rebel Forces in the Airam Sector and is under threat
of being captured. Captain, shortly after your capture operation of the
Rebel Nebulon-B Frigate The Master, the Rebels managed to ambush
the Imperial Nebulon-B Frigate Lightning Bolt just as it came out
of hyperspace. The Nebulon-B Lighting Bolt has succumbed to the
Rebel ambush. The frigate lays disabled in the Rebel minefield and its
fighter complement is merely a debris field. You have been ordered to repel
the Rebel attackers and prevent the capture of the Nebulon-B Frigate Lightning
Bolt. As usual you will be operating from the VSDII Touch of Death.
You still retain command of Hammer (TIE Interceptors, specially equipped
with shields) and Anvil Squadrons (TIE Bombers specially equipped with
shields). Note that Hammer and Anvil Squadrons are veterans. The Spacetroopers
and ATRs under your command have been reassigned to another Imperial warship.
In their place you have been given 3 Stormtrooper Transports. The Rebels
have deployed a large Type B Minefield in the area. The Rebel ambush force
includes 4 CR90 Corellian Corvettes, 4 Corellian Gunships, 1 X-Wing, 1
Y-Wing and 1 A-Wing Squadrons. The Y-Wing and A-Wing Squadrons are veterans.
[A Veteran squadron is the equivalent 2 ordinary squadrons]
