So... is this mission bugged or is there a trick to killing the tank? This thing is OP and if you try to back off and LoS fight it, it spawns hard mobs at you. *** knowledge bomb on this..

Clear the area where the tank lands.
Use your healing companion.
When the tank lands, stand on the right side of it (when facing the tank from the console).
Do not stand too close to the tank because it has a "static shield" that will damage you.
Kill the 2 "strong" droids that it will spawn every now and then as soon as possible.
When you see a red circle appear under you, move out of it (tank drops a mortar on the location).

That should do it. Good luck.
If you seek answers, you must always ask questions. - Master Vandar Tokare.

No, that doesn't help. The problem is that I can't get a "lock" on the hovertank, so I can't hit it.

Cracked it! I had to jump onto the tank to attack it from inside. With that done, I aced it solo--didn't die once, and didn't need my heroic moment.

I'm 55. The problem was getting a "lock" on the target. Initially I was waving my lightsaber and nothing was happening.

i soloed this with my sentinel the first week makeb was released. killed the stuff around it.. then took out the tank by standing on it.. it was a rough fight, but not as rough as what happened after.. the tank spawned quick cuz someone else triggered it.. and i was stuck inside of the tank until the other guy killed it.. fun times

I am wondering if anyone is still having problems with this objective because I certainly am. Either the hovertank doesn't spawn or the mission doesn't register as complete when the hovertank is destroyed.

Help me understand what you mean by lock. Are you having trouble targeting the tank?

I have solo'ed it with my Sent and my Shadow/tank.

-Clear area first and call the tank.
-Use tab targeting to target tank and hop on the fuselage and go to work.
-Be wary of knock back. Interrupt what you can. Don't lose LOS of your heals.

That was it.
