None of these hold good memories for Vader but I'd vote for Mustafar as we have not seen him involved in an air battle there.

I am probably putting too much thought into it, but I was trying to envision how the battle began so I could better envision the location. I too am going to go with:

Mustafar

Battle of the Summer 2016

Setting: Mustafar



Combatant One: Darth Vader in TIE Fighter



Storyline: Planning to establish a new base of operations, Darth Vader revisits Mustafar, a planet he is all too familiar with. Before parting, the Sith Lord gathers his best and most battle hardened TIE Fighter Pilots:



Upon arriving on Mustafar, Lord Vader senses a disturbance. He focuses his mind on what it could be, but within seconds it appears in front of him:



A lone X-Wing.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Though Vader has never seen one like this before, he realizes it is only but one obstacle he has to overcome.


Just before Vader gives the command to fire, however, he is blindsided by a laser cannon that narrowly misses his TIE fighter.

Vader looks around to see backup has arrived:



_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Before Vader can act, his communications are intercepted and a voice is heard:

"Vader, the only way you're getting through here is over my dead body!"

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Combatant Two: Black Squadron led by Poe Dameron



______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

A dog fight ensues for the control/ prevention of Darth Vader's new base on Mustafar.



The only question is.. WHO WINS?

*NOTES:

- Darth Vader has brought 5 of his best TIE Fighter Pilots (though the picture only shows two of them being escorted)

- Black Squadron consists of 6 people total.

Vader may get battered and bruised, he will likely lose all his wing men, but he will come out of it alive.  Maybe not triumphant, but alive.

I love that image of Vader in his TIE. I'd like to get Prowse to sign that.

I haven't forgotten this. Been pretty busy and this runs through July so it kind of went backburner for me, but I will get to it. In the meantime if anyone has a dogfight ready to read throw it out here.

Completly forgot about this. Man old age sucks, but cause I remember thinking of an end scenario and how I was going to end the fight, but forgot to write the dang thing.

Dang, as if I didn't feel bad enough.

Very quick and very sloppy but here is my imagining:

Nearing Mustafar vader is surprised by bolts of lazers from behind his tie fighter. He quickly scrambles as he sees one of the 5 ties escorting him explode into a fireball. He only had time to put out a brief “kill them all” command as the fight ensues and he can see his squadron taking on the rest of black squadron. Vader being the most skilled and knowing Poe Dameron is the leader and most skilled rival on the field he begins his search for the odd xwing that had surprised him earlier as he knows that will be the leader he desires. He turns his tie just in time to see Poe shooting some laser blasts his way and just maanages to dodge them as he returns fire. Even as skilled a pilot as he is, vader knows he must gain an advantage in some way. Having been to mustafar before he knows he can get close to the surface and use not only the terrain as a way to help shield him but also use the lava blasts as a weapon. He quickly shoots more blasts in Poe's direction and then makes a quick descent towards the planet surface. He sees via his radar that Poe has taken the bait and is following.

Down near the surface Vader is fast dodging the mountain and hills of mustafar all the while looking for a large cliffside where he can do a drastic drop and hopefully be able to then do a loop to go over the top of his foe. A large rist in the surface becomes visable and vader sees his chance. He slows to let Poe get closer and then at the last minute he drops out of sight. Poe didnt see him in time and continued straight and just as he was about to turn to go back to the canyon he sees vader pop up from below the ground level and realizes vader has just oyut smarted him. With vader now behind him this fight just got a lot worse for him. As Poe increases in speed and makes every attempt to outrun vader he soon realizes this is a lost cause. Alarms begin going off telling Poe that vader is using a lockon device in orde to shoot him out of the sky.

Just as the loudest alarm triggers to say a lock has been made poe sees blasts of light come from above. He looks up to see that one of the other members of his squadron has now come to help. The other squad member hits vaders tie repeatedly from above and vader looks on the radar to see that the xwing is fast approaching his tie fighter. He knows what this manuever is and he braces fro impact just as the other xwing rams him and both his ship and the other squadron x wing explode into a ball of fire. The wreckage slams into the surface of mustafar with pieces of the debris flying into the molten lava and melting away any sign that it had existed.

Poe returns to the wreck area and scans the surface but is unable to detect any life signs. He says a quick thank you for his fallen comrade and he returns to space to continue the fight. As he flies off vader watches from a nearby hilltop where he was thown. Vader knows this Poe Dameron and he will cross paths again someday as he curses Poe and begins to make the long hot walk on this insufferable planet to try to find some way for rescue.

I would of thought for sure you'd go the Vader route, but I like the scenario in which they both survive and live to meet each other in another dog fight.

That's really cool. Nice explanation as well and it wasn't sloppy! pirat

I'm going to give it another few days and then I plan to open up some voting for the newest battle. cheers
