Possibly the easiest Legendary mission! You will be constantly assaulted, however can finish the mission very fast anyway.

My strategy for Mission 12: Repairs

The overall focus in order of importance:
1. Spam Cyclops(from the 2 close build locations)!
2. Intercept incoming Covenant ground troops with your troops.
3. Heal the Core really really fast!

My general walkthrough steps:
1. Spam Cyclops, and continue to Spam Cyclops through this mission although get 350 resources if you can use the Leader Heal Power on the Core, use it, then spam more Cyclops.
2. Station your Hawks just North of the raised deck area where you can build 4 Turrets.
3. Station your Spartan's at the South side or the center of the raised area.
4. Station your Wolverines in the South middle.
5. Station other ground troops in between the other groups.
6. Global Rally point next to the Power Core.
7. Use the Heal Power as often as you can.
8. Build a couple more Hawks if possible, or even a few Marines.
9. Your goal is to block the Covenant from getting down the South stairs to the Power Core.
10. When the Power Core is almost repaired, at least one Covenant dropship will drop troops to the right of the Core. Possibly send a Hawk or Forge and Marines to deal with them.
11. Basically, you can usually finish this way under Par Time, by just spamming Cyclops and protecting them and the Core.

There will be Covenant Drop Ships all over dropping off Covenant. You just have to beat the Covenant wave. Usually, when the Core is finally healed, the whole deck is a ridiculous firefight. There might be 15-20 Cyclops all repairing at that point.
Hawks are great for taking out the Covenant troops, Marines are great for blocking the pathways so the Covenant can't get to the Core.
