Tour of Duty Three - Mission 3
Recon Imperial Research Facility
X-Wing Alliance Strategy Guide
Score: 2146 Bonus: 1000
Thanks to a mysterious imperial tip-off, the Alliance needs your squadron to investigate and destroy an Imperial Research Facility in the Kuat System.



"Flying casual" can really come in handy for this mission.  Head for the small satellites, but feel free to do a few loops and destroy a gunboat or TIE that is on your tail.

Once you deal with the sats and inspect the base, the order will go through to destroy it.  Keep dog fighting to get some of the ships off your back, and then focus on the base. 

The reinforcements in this mission can be particularly useful, but be careful, as the Juggernaut and Liberty will clash when they reach about 5-6km.

When shields hit 0%, you will be informed that by destroying the hatch (a component in the CMD), you can fly inside and destroy the reactor with a single torpedo blast. Enter at 1/3rd, fire the torps when you have a lock, and start to turn around before the torps hit the reactor.  Crank the speed up to 100% and you should make it out easily.
