    we definitely need more ships to fill out fleets, so makes perfect sense to remove all need for HT in rebel fleets.

  • If the shield disruption is meant to counter HT, I hope it's not dispellable.

  • Nice, in the ideal rebel squad it would probably replace bistan
  • Oh this looks good, not just to counter HT but also to deal with the segment of Unending Loyalty that gives so much Protection Up. Now you can just AoE nuke Anakin right after Unending Loyalty has been nuked

    I love it. Simple yet very effective.
  • Cool a new ship. Is it what we all want no but that's fine.

    Wow.

    In an ENTIRE MOVIE, you guys decided we really wanted a ship that showed up for a max 10 seconds at the very end of the movie.

    Way to have a good read on the playerbase CG. FFS.

    So is this because of the 40th anniversary or just a random ship entering the game? Can we expect more? Hhmmm....seems like a road ahead would answer these questions.

    Cool ship though.
  • Where's our road ahead?!

    Why on earth does this ship not have a pilot? Why are you continuing with this? :(

    please nobody spend on this until road ahead comes out. it’ll be in shop for the usual 29 days so no rush.. just wait to see if road ahead is the end of the game or not first in case they’re just pushing packs before they say seeya later to us

    Urgh another crewless ship?
    Stop it!
    And why do you introduce another rebel ship?
    Please fill the other fleets first, Empire, FO, Resistance, BHs and Separatists all still need ships.
    It's nice to get a new rebel ship but not before the other fleets have enough ships to run them.

    Wait... I thought Episode V was called the Empire strikes back...

    Unless this ship is needed for a new Death Star raid then I’m confused...

    Not having to relic 7 a pilot to get a strong tank to replace hounds tooth is exactly what the rebel fleet needed to combat Malevolence and Negotiator, if and only if it is fast enough.

    It remains to be seen how fast she is. Biggs is quick for a tank and may be hard to replace for those of us with Bistan, but the ion torpedoes look fantastic versus galactic republic, no doubt.

    Thanks for keeping ships on your radar. Some of us really love them, though I do wish we could choose our own reinforcement order under ai. This ship could be really bad if it's not fast enough, or it's not durable enough. The base stats to complement the kit will tell the real story.

    Actually they do..... Y-wings are one of the most iconic ships in the SW universe. The Rebel Y-wings were in a New Hope, Empire, ROTJ, Rogue One, Rise of Skywalker and the Rebels show.

    Add to that it's been on the splash screen for a while and people keep asking about it.

    Hounds tooth counter, another taunting ship tank, no pilot required - what's not to love about this iconic ship? So when do we get a A and B wing?

    My G12 Gar Saxon and Imperial Super Commando would like to have a word with you. I'd take those resources back in a heartbeat if I could get a maxed Gauntlet Starfighter without them.

  • SRP is pretty bad too. I'll never forget the 1 random crafted gear piece for ISC to go from G11 to G12 that needed 100 pieces of premium gear and he is the only character IN THE ENTIRE GAME that uses that specific created gear. I'm not still salty or anything.

    Bonus, that piece gives +special damage which ISC doesn't use
