=== Preamble ===

Welcome to Session XVI. This month we've got another new XWA mission, this time from BGN Adam Mieter: Routine Patrol. Give it a fly and let us know what you think! For the XvT fans we've got the next retro mission in the current series, Attack on Exort Base. Be sure to get those reports in ASAP - we've gotta start breaking the usual tradition of flying at the last minute!

Still looking for someone to fill the Platform XO position. Details are in the Call for Help section.

If you find a bug, please contact me immediately so that it can be fixed! Anyone with suggestions or comments for the newsletter (or platforms) may feel free to contact me via the RS site's private message system or through e-mail. Addresses and links can be found on my profile page.

=== X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter ===

XvT 316: Attack on Exort Base (RgF 204) - due June 30th
Created by Wes Belden

= Mission Overview =

Following your last patrol, and the ships found to be carrying illegal weapons as cargo, we managed to gain some information by interrogating the crew. It seems they were hired by a large smuggling and pirating ring. Intel are now looking into this organization. We obtained the loction of one of their hidden bases, from which the ships we caught picked up their cargo.

We are now going to capture this base. It will hopefully have some useful information within either its crew or its computers.

= Mission Details =

This is a normal mission; fly with the usual rules. Multiplayer not available.

You get an X-Wing with a half-load of Proton Torpedoes. No countermeasures or beam systems.

Full mission details can be found in the in-game briefing.

=== X-Wing Alliance ===

XWA: Routine Patrol - due June 30th
Built by BGN Adam Mieter

= Mission Overview =

This will be a routine patrol mission. We don't expect any hostile activities in the sector, but stay alert.

No unnecessary chit-chat on the comms, and don't leave your patrol area, no matter what. We can't be lured into a trap and risk losing the Nest.

After the 15 minute mark, return to the Redemption and write your report. But you know the drill by now.


= Mission Details =

You fly an X-Wing, but Adam gives you plenty of choices for customization in this one. You get a standard load of Advanced Missiles, Heavy Rockets, Proton Torpedoes, or Advanced Torpedoes. Chaff or Flares are available for countermeasures, and any beam system but Tractor can be chosen.

Full mission details can be found in the in-game briefing.

=== The Future ===

In Session XVII we'll have a new XvT mission from none other than ADM Licah Fox while XWA returns to the retro runs. If anyone has a new XWA mission burning a hole in their hard drive they'd like to share with the RS, let me know!

=== Call for Help ===

I'm in need of someone to take over the Assistant Platform Coordinator slot for XvT and XWA.

Duties include the approval of mission reports for the two platforms, building and/or testing new missions, helping assemble the regular platform newsletters, updating the platform pages on the wiki (this is nearly done), and filling in for me if I'm ever on leave or otherwise unavailable. Don't worry, it's much simpler than it may sound.

Those interested should shoot me an email or private message. Addresses and links can be found on my profile page.

=== Closing ===

That's all for this month's newsletter. Due date for ye olde mission reports is June 30th.

XvT & XWA Platform Coordinator
