Starfighter Assault on Other Maps

So, just like Galactic Assault, the objective-based scenarios of the Starfighter Assault mode will be unique to their specific maps. With Fondor, the planet featured in the Gamescom demo, this involves taking out a Star Destroyer at an Imperial docking station in orbit above the planet. The trailer also gives us glimpses of a ST battle above an unknown planet in the Unknown Regions, an OT battle in the Death Star debris above Endor, a PT battle above Ryloth, and a PT battle in the skies of Kamino.
The details of how the battles will unfold is, of course, unknown as are the details of exactly how many planets will feature in the Starfighter Assault mode. However, knowing that this will be a multi-stage mode is enough to start speculating/theorising how battles from the canon could play out in this mode. Having recently re-watched Rogue One, it would be great to see the Battle of Scarif feature in this mode, and here is how I could see it play out:
PHASE 1 - Clear a path for Blue Squadron
  • Rebels must target the turrets and cannons of the shield gate and destroy all of them within a set time limit in order to clear a path for Blue Squadron to enter Scarif through the shield gate safely, Imperials must prevent this.
PHASE 2 - Protect Admiral Raddus
  • The Rebels must defend Admiral Raddus' flagship, the Profundity, by destroying 2 Imperial Light Cruisers and a set number of Imperial stafighters within a set time limit, Imperials must destroy the Profundity.
PHASE 3 - Incapacitate the Star Destroyer Persecutor
  • Rebels must attack the Star Destroyer Persecutor and disable it in within a set time limit order to allow the Hammerhead Corvette Lightmaker to ram it into the shield gate, Imperials must prevent this.
So what do you guys think? What planets/battles would you like to see and how would you envision the 3 different phases of the mode playing out?

    Really excited to see what Starfighter assault is on other maps.

    I like your idea too but I think the shield gate should play a factor in to it more.
  • yes plz. i wonder how the battle of corauscant will run? phase 1 destroy shields of dreadnought, phase 2 escort jedi to ship, phase 3 destroy.

    I love the idea of having different scenarios for each planet
    442nd And 332nd are the BEST
  • It looks like the Ryloth scenario could be protecting the Venator rather than attacking the Lucrehulk, since we can see the light cruisers nearby
