PC | Submitted by Charizard88Covering Ground Fast
If you need to cover some ground very fast, have a beam device installed to your vessel (this option is available when reflying the missions or in a later stage of the game).
By redirecting the energy of the beam device (either tractor, jamming or decoy beam) to your engine, you gain approx 1/3 is speed. Not too shabby, especially if you fly the A-Wing crafts.

In the first mission of battle 4, 0nce the marauder corvette is destroyed, destroy all the remaining fighters. Remember, set your turrets to autofire by pressing the "F" key. Do not travel to the Vergesso Asteroids until your shields are fully recharged. While you are waiting, you can destroy the supply depot to get some juicy bonus points. Once your shields are recharged head for the asteroids. You will encounter only four Supa Fighters. Your laser turrets set to autofire will take out all opposition. Just remenber not to fly in a straight line for too long.
