Ok, I'm stuck. What's the best way to get past this level? I've cleared all the mines and got all 3 salvage ships to the ruins in one piece. But the 2 awaiting enemy APC's plus reinforcements that arrive a few seconds later end up slaughtering my Slavage ships in a few seconds. I can usually kill one APC and a few flying fighters but I just run out of time. Meaning the salvage craft die too soon. Another way I try is to clear one path of mines all the way to the ruins (salvage team one gets a clear path to the site). The game warns you not to abandon the teams but I ignore that and quickly destroy the 2 waiting APC's. In the remaining few seconds I can fly over the ridge, avoid getting shot at and clear the remaining path for Team 3. Basically I sacrifice team 2 to make time. Team 2 dies usually while I engage the first set off APC's. Now I have to fly back and wait for the reinforcements. Now you can't go and meet them halfway like in the protection level because the SAM sites try to shoot you down. You have to wait for them to be practically on top of you for the action to begin. But no matter how fast or set up I am, my salvage teams die in a matter of seconds in the firefight.
Anyone have any ideas?
