takahagi base

New guy here. Am playing SP and have gotten to the attack on Takahagi's
base. Can't seem to get any further. Been killed at least ten times
trying to destroy generators. Have been using starkiller torps, moonstalker
missiles and 5 guns on a Barracuda HF. Any suggestions?

Mods, please move this to the spoilers ASAP!

*Spoilers below*

This is one of the tougher missions in the game. Despite having played FL for over two years now I never have flown the barracuda, and had best luck with this mission in the hawk. Don't rely on torps too much as they can get you killed if you spend too much time launching and not enough evading. Don't worry about the battleship, its not neccessary to kill it. If you want to go for the kill, fly straight toward it in cruise, then engine kill about 15-17 k away from it and launch torps like mad... they'll cover the distance with the extra speed and destroy it. When going for the shield generators themselves use the big shield to block you from some of the turrets, don't hover in one place but rather thrust around a lot. Dock quickly and enjoy the cutscene. Also, ignore the advice about flying in through the bottom of the asteroid. It may be cool, but its pointless.

I actually like flying up through the bottom of the station, it allows you to avoid turrets and fighters , so you can launch missles like mad

Was this actually moved?

Was it answered with any more detail than robbio kindly supplied anywhere else?

Just conscious of the delicate line between not introducing spoilers in the wrong forum and being polite to a new comer with valid questions.

BTW: As we cannot discuss this openly here might I just say that there is often nothing wrong with your ship or your load out and the missions can be complete with a lesser ships than we have, which I am sure you already know from other games. Listen to robbio and examine your tactics. Generally in the game if you fly in formation with the other ships on the mission it will lead you in the right direction.

On the subject of tactics have you ever played MechWarrior? The last mission in the Black Knight (4) expansion was too much for me to go through using the usual blend of brute force, speed, skill, and out ritght insanity. I selected long range energy weps and hid in the mountains away from enemy fire with my engines killed while calmly picking-off enemy Mechs one shot at a time. Tactics and the right weps can often be the answer. *Thinks about going home to load up Mech Warrior again---reconsiders---Santa is due to stirke some F.E.A.R. into the Druid house hold this year *

Oh yeh, EDIT, no insult intended to JD here but

It may be cool, but its pointless.
Remember, we all have our own opinions based on our own experiences with the game and our own style of play so it might wise to take the advice you are given with gratitude but still form your own opinion. Trial and error helps.
