Tour of Duty One - Mission 5
Recover Imperial Probe
X-Wing Alliance Strategy Guide

Score: 3783

Bonus: 506

Your Sister needs you to obtain a rogue imperial probe droid that is far from imperial space.

 Strategy:  

This can be either very easy or very difficult depending on how you play.

In the probe area, set the Muurian transport to one preset and head towards it, using defend fire to keep the R-41s off your back. Its the greatest threat to the probe - after you finish it off, the other ships should be easy work.

In the checkpoint area, you have two options - dump all shield and laser energy to engines and make a run for it, or release the probe and help out the platform.

If you decide for the latter, head towards the Y-Wing group targeting you and use a combination of defend fire, forward lasers, and the (i) key to target missiles. This should get you close to the pirate fighters and leave them ripe for the picking with auto-fire.

Keep dealing with the Y-Wing squadrons that are focused on you, and then turn your attention to the twin Marauder corvettes. Constant circling with auto fire should be enough to do them in, but remember you also have an ion cannon if you can't stand the turbo laser fire.
