2 things to inform you about:
1-I followed Macfie's recent suggestion and while the performance of the Ares (Rho wing) might be something to look into like I suggested, I did see that they at least 'looked' like they were supposed to (2014 version).
2-I did a little bit better in this campaign than I have in previous tries (at the end it said I got 80% bonus). I did a couple things I hadn't done in previous runthroughs of the campaign (getting 20 turrets on the Saturn, destroying some escaping escape pods, and getting the whole convoy in mission 5, for example).
Neither of these will likely affect what you're about to do...just thought I'd share.
