Tour of Duty 2: Heavy Assault
Mission 2: "Mystery of the Trinity"
- Nebula; Near Subspace Portal
- Patrol Nebula with Zeta Wing.
- Destroy first two wings of Shivan fighters. (unrewarded)
- Protect NTF Trinity and damage control vessel Discovery (Primary 2/2 failed)
- Destroy first two flight groups attacking NTF Trinity
- Destroy Cancer and Libra Shivan Fighter Wings (bonus?)
This is a tough mission that puts you under tight pressure. Follow Zeta 1 (they should already be assigned to F5 or F6, if not, use E) and prepare for dog-fighting when scrambled red signals show up on your radarscope.
Eventually you should come across a pink signal - this is the NTF Trinity, a recently defected cruiser that appears to be in dire straights. A GTVA strike team vessel (Discovery) should warp in to perform repairs and arrest the crew - your goal is to stop the incoming Shivan fighters.
Set the Trinity to a preset and order all fighters to protect the vessel. You should soon face two flight groups of aggravated Shivan forces - they aren't too tough as long as you use your missiles to blow them away quickly. Good Pilots can keep Trinity damage under 20%.
Unfortunately, the hard work is all for not as six cancer's and four Libra's warp in and immediately launch anti-cruiser missiles. If you destroyed the previous fighters successfully, you won't be penalized when the Trinity is destroyed - just warp out. The Discovery will be destroyed as a result of the Trinity explosion, and your scattered fighter wing will immediately jump out on standing orders. That leaves you and 9-10 fully armed, aspect-seeking, Shivan fighters. I recommend leaving.
