I'm having a difficult time with the space combat mission Taspan Ambush. The ship i'm escorting is always destroyed before the end. My ship is fully upgraded but it still doesnt help.

Blow up the fighters and take out as many turrets on the cap ships as possible but focus on the fighters, they do the most damage.

some of the dmg is scripted, and unavoidable, that big chunk coming out of the minefield.

there's a set of cruisers, the second pair i believe they come back at the end and Frag you. Take out all the turrets on the cruisers, as early as you can, if you can wreck them at the beginning of the mission, then there's almost no fire on the shuttle. you can ignore the fighters in this first part. ir just blast them when you've got nothing better to shoot at, they won't do much to the shuttle.

If you're doing it right, you should have nearly full health on the escort when you go into the asteroids.

It'll take that big hit, but have like half left. from there it's all about picking the fighters off fast, i tended to use a lot of missiles there too.

You can start shooting the turrets on the very first ship before you can see them.

Blow your missiles on the cruiser turrets as fast as possible. Destroy every single one.
Ignore the fighters while killing the cruiser turrets.

There are a few points where you can see part of a cruiser just long enough in the corner of the screen to fire off a couple missiles.

Also, I think you can actually destroy the shuttle if you dont watch your fire
