Operation Final Fury is.... annoying
Hokay, protect the convoy. No sweat, my Skiron is a death machine. Next up: protect the convoy. OK, no biggie. Next up - protect the convoy. I can see a pattern.

And next mission - you guessed it.

Except that this time, oooooooooh, this time, the convoy pilots instead of flying to Argon Sector M148 fly to Nathan's voyage. Oh yes, because, apparently, they are idiots.

And the Kh'aak corvettes keep spamming next to them.

No biggie, my Skiron can take a corvette by killing its shields and crashing into it, and I also jumped in my Tiger with flak arrays and IBL's and HEPTs.

But.... but the convoy ships fly towards that gate, then circle it, fly back, you know why - they are waiting for the inevitable Kh'aak corvette and cluster spam.

No biggie, but I would appreciate it if the convoy pilots were not suicidal and actually made an effort to fly to their destination while dodging enemy fire and fighting back.

This game is making me miss Xwing, Tie Fighter and Xwing: Alliance (best of the bunch) for the AI behaviour - in those games, your allies were GOOD, they fought well and the convoy made best speed to its destination.

Also, shield management - it's missing in this game.

All in all, this game is starting to annoy me.

Restart the mission an then see what happens i think it is a bug. I had no problem with the plot Final fury.

Nope, it is correct. Fighting the Kh'aak gives you random missions, it just so happens majority of them for me are convoy missions.

I also got similar prob, just brought in all my big ships, positioned them around gate. Then flew through the gate then back again. This started the convoy to fly to sector M148 and finished mission. Yes was fustrating.
