Hi there, I am having a whale of trouble with the mission to protect the Armageddon, with the secondary objective of making sure that none of her battlegroup dies. In Standoff, I could just press ctrl-n and then have a view of what bombers were targeting what ship, and I could go after those particular bombers. It is MUCH MUCH harder to target the correct ship in Saga -- how exactly am I supposed to correctly protect the entire battlegroup, then, to succeed on the secondary objective? Is there a trick to this mission? Is it stay close to the group and target only missiles or something? Thanks, I need a bunch of help...

I think I read somewhere that the 'target closest bomber' actually targets the bomber nearest to the reticule or something (?!?!)?

And cycling through the escort ships and trying to target the closest attacker to those ships doesn't seem to work...?

Wait, I figured out an exploit... never engage your autopilot, and afterburner-glide ahead...

Gliding ahead mixed up the script. I went with auto pilot. Just do it!

well i did it (took me an hour) and its just as you said its an exploit i had to engage auto once take out the orbital base but this trick allowed be to by pass the ground to space missiles and engage all fighters and bombers well before they reached the battle group if i didn't kill them then my wing mates did and if they made it to the battle group the combined firepower of the cap ships finished them off. i stand by with what i said about its not the end as long as the Armageddon survives but for those who are so ocd about saving all the capships its a good trick

Well, my suggestion is:

1. Put difficulty Level to "Very Easy".
2. Use "Glide" (Alt-G) as much as you can....
2a. Put Gunpower 1 step higher (lowering Shield/Energy)
3. If you manage to survive the second bomber wave without one Escort Shipt hit...you should get through it..otherwise restart right there..
4. It is possible to get through this without ONE SCRATCH on the Escort Ships...(speaking about my own experience) so dont give up. BUT the Carrier got HIT several times...^^
