The Sabre Corvette mission also gave me a headache.
Worst thing was when I finaly managed to get the Sabres to stay alive, they kill both Corvettes I was just going "Yah I did it" and then a missile and a few salvos just missed me and killed the Sabres.
That was depressing!

Anyways I finished the mission, even with the Sabres lost and continued. Also didn't managed to take out all the missiles at Vega. 2 missiles got past me but I keep playing.
Still the Vega missions is just great.

Yes, good point. You don't HAVE to win all these missions you know. You might miss out on a medal or two but as long as the game lets you continue in the campaign you'll be just fine. There is no losing branch so don't worry so much about failing here and there.

What, no Scimitar missions to defend the Earth? I AM DISAPPOINT! :D


So, is the mission tree completely linear or does it actually branch off from time to time? If so, is there an overview about the mission tree available somewhere?

Linear. You will never fly a completely different mission, however a few missions become more difficult if you fail the ones before.

The Freespace2 engine this game is built on really doesn't like branching (i.e. non-linear) mission progression. It would have required an awful lot of work to try to add something like this; it's a fundamental limitation of everything anyone has done with the FS2 engine.

Fun fact: Cats get obsessed with the hunt unless it contradicts their direct orders. Those fleabags aren't very good at viewing situations abstractly. In fact, they're terrible at it; it's in their genetics. So if your buddy has a feline infestation, his problem is your opportunity, because that mangy fuzzball on his 6 will NEVER see you coming.

Pro Tip #1: If you hit F3, you can assign individual vehicles or groups of vehicles to the targeting hotkeys F5 through F12. In that particular mission, I assigned our ISS pals to F6.

Pro Tip #2: If you have a friendly targeted and strike G, your targeting system will automatically snap to a unit that is currently attacking that friendly target.

Alright, now let's put this all together, Lieutenant:
1. ISS friendly potentially in danger, hit F6 to select him.
2. Hit G to see who's attacking him.
3. Administer hot plasma euthanasia right up Mr. Whiskers' tailpipe.

Mm-mm! Smell that? Somebody must'a ordered some Feline Barbecue.

I also cannot get past this mission. I cannot get by the part where I am supposed to cover for the 2 ISS pilots. They always eject even if the fighters are all killed off quickly, then you are left with under equipped ships to destroy the large enemy vessels. I made it past this part one time somehow, but had 5% hull integrity, no fuel, and no missiles. Needless to say I got wiped out quickly by the ace and his fighters. If I cannot get past this soon, I am just going to put the game on easy (I am on medium difficulty now) and try my luck. The game also gets rather boring when you have to play a level over and over again!

Well, I lost both Sabres. Finished the mission nonetheless. Went on.

You can take capital ships out with guns only, because now you know that missiles need to be spared. ;)

After trying this 3 more times on medium, and failing, I put in on easy! Those ISS pilots are wimps!!;p). They were ejecting on one try after I had just quickly killed 2 fighters. After putting the game on easy, I got by this part with no problem, with both ISS pilots, but I could not kill Fireclaw, or whatever the ace's name is! I even hit him with 4 missiles, and was pounding him with lasers, but he just runs off. I have a feeling he cannot be killed at this point in the game, and we will meet him again somewhere down the line!!
