So the players in my bounty hunting campaign are looking for a new ship, and this one appears to offer just about everything that they want.*

*OK, so the Consumables are a bit low, but that's not too big of a deal really.

 

However, a few questions about this ship have come up:

 

1. Does any art for this ship exist? If so, can anyone provide any links?

 

2. The ship incorporates a Stinger Assault Boarding Tube. This can be found as an Attachment on page 61. The one on the 4R3 can cut through a hull in 3 turns while the Attachment takes 5 turns but allows up to four Mods that reduce the time by 1 turn each. Can the one on the 4R3 benefit from (a maximum of two) such Mods even though it's not an Attachment?

I couldn't find it. Wookipedia does have this though: http://starwars.wiki...sault_transport

So maybe it looks like that... but lighter?

1. I couldent find any.

 

2. I dont see why not. One could argue that considering the boarding tube is part of the ship that it would be faster than an attachment. Personally I would say that the boarding tube take 3 turns to attach, and three turnes to cut, BUT any mods you want to do will come at a cost of the HP of the ship.

There is no art... which is really annoying in my opinion.

Yeah. Which is why I really only want to stick with ships from the books or versions of the ships. I am a visual player.

1. I think the picture on page 38, is the 4R3. It is meant to look like an unarmed freighter.

 

2. I'd allow it although, i'd assume it was already modded twice for difficulty purposes.

The freighter on page 38 is the YZ-775.

Could it be the ship chasing the Preybird on page 66?

I sent a question to the art department.  See if we get an answer.

I'm pretty sure that's a Suronian Conqueror-Class Assault Ship

There's a way to ask the art department questions?

Yah, just use the menu on the front for customer service and select the department.  I asked for the artist's name that did the portrait of the Klatooinian and they emailed me back and let me know.

Got the answer today.

 

Hi xxxxxx,

 
Thanks for your e-mail.  I’m afraid there is no art in the book to represent that vehicle.
 
All the best,

In Dangerous Covenants was there any piece of art included in the book that was intended to represent the 4R3 Light Assault Transport detailed on p.67.

So the 4R3 is a invisible ship, similar to Wonder Woman's invisible Jet :D
