X-Wing: Evacuation of Hoth – Blockade Runner (Mission II)

As the invasion rages on below, the GR75 escapes into orbit and plunges headfirst into the imperial blockade.

 “Stand by, Ion Control…Fire.”
―Toryn Farr

Imperial forces scramble to intercept the transport before it passes beyond the range of the merciless salvo of turbolasers.With the help of Hoth’s planetary ion cannon, however, the Rebel forces may be able to punch through the blockade and make the jump to hyperspace.

 “As the Rebels fled, the 501st gathered around a burning bunker, and let out a cheer that shook the stars. The Rebellion was done.”
―Retired clone trooper

The Rebel starships must survive wave after wave of Imperial fighters that make their way from the blockading Star Destroyers to engage the Rebel forces. As the Rebels continue along their flight path, their battle with the Imperial ships is punctuated by shots from planetary ion cannons and nearby Star Destroyers raining down turbolaser and ion blasts.

Rebels won the first encounter.

Following the campaigns rules, all surviving rebel unique ships (Wedge Antilles and Aire Cracken) may be equipped with a free upgrade for free (up to 5pts).
Each rebel unique ships destroyed (Biggs and Lt Blount) should be replaced by non unique ships of the same type and lowest squad point cost. So a X-Wing Rookie Pilot and a Z-95 Bandit.
The GR75 foi was heavily damaged and will start the game with a “Minor Hull Breach” damage card.
The Rebels players may see the next mission Imperial squadron.

X-Wing: Red Vs Black

 “All wings report in. — Red Ten standing by. — Red Seven standing by. — Red Three standing by. — Red Six standing by. — Red Nine standing by. — Red Two standing by. — Red Eleven standing by. — Red Five standing by.”


RED SQUADRON

Red Squadron was an Alliance Starfighter Corps X-wing squadron active during the Galactic Civil War. The squadron most famously fought at the Battle of Yavin and Battle of Endor

Red Squadron was stationed aboard the Mon Calamari Star Cruiser Independence during the build up to the Battle of Yavin. Pilots who flew with the squadron included Lieutenant Hamo Blastwell, Keyan Farlander, Samuel Raider and Puck Naeco. Many members were transferred to Yavin Base and reassigned to different squadrons for the Death Star assault.

Red Squadron was cobbled together from pilots from the Dantooine Squadron, the Ecliptic Evaders, and the Tierfon Yellow Aces for the assault on the Death Star. During the battle, Red Squadron gained the distinction of being the unit that brought down the Death Star’s defenses as well as ultimately destroying the station itself. But the victory came at a price. Almost the entire squadron was destroyed, except for two X-wings flown by Luke Skywalker and Wedge Antilles.

Red Squadron Pilots:

Wedge Antilles — X-Wing

Luke Skywalker — X-Wing

Jek Porkins — X-Wing

Biggs Darklighter — X-Wing

Garven Dreis — X-Wing

Red Squadron Pilot — X-Wing

Red Squadron Pilot — X-Wing

Total: 180pts


BLACK SQUADRON

Stationed aboard the first Death Star during the Battle of Yavin, Black Squadron was the TIE unit which Vader led into battle against the attacking Rebel snubfighters—the only TIE unit to deploy against the Rebels during the battle. As Moff Tarkin and most of the rest of the Death Star’s chain of command refused to take the threat the Rebellion posed seriously, only the squadron that Vader personally commanded launched—fortunately for the Alliance, as the giant station carried several thousand TIEs that would have easily overwhelmed the few dozen snubfighters the Rebels managed to throw against it. An element of six TIEs attacked the X-wings providing top cover, while Vader himself and two wing guards engaged the ships making the trench run. It is not often appreciated these TIE pilots were significantly outnumbered during the battle, but the members of Black Squadron were among the finest the Empire had to offer: they fought hard, and were responsible for many of the Alliance casualties.

Black Squadron Pilots:

Darth Vader — TIE Advanced

“Mauler Mithel” — TIE Fighter

“Backstabber” — TIE Fighter

“Dark Curse” — TIE Fighter

Black Squadron 5 — TIE Fighter

Black Squadron 6— TIE Fighter

X-Wing: The Point of no Return – Refueling Ambush

The Rebels have emerged relatively unscathed from their initial encounter, but have provoked the ire of the Empire. While stopped at a refueling station, the CR90 is ambushed by the battered remnants of the original TIE patrol bolstered by an elite squadron led by Soontir Fel.

The situation looks bleak for the CR90’s crew until a group of Rebel fighters comes to their defense.

The Rebels won, once again.
