oh the lies! might be photoshopped! it is actually fairly close to the a wing though. think the a wing has a 5 k turn instead of the 4 and green 2 90 degree turns instead of the white here.


I see your schwartz is as big as mine. Let's see how you handle it!

Assuming that's legit, 'tis not bad. Basically an A-wing with less green, banks instead of turns at 1, and a 4 instead of 5 K-turn. Very solid, and if you stick an R2 on it becomes pretty ridiculous.

 

Bring it on.

The ID token numbers and the Target Lock letters look bogus too.

Well, that's a dissapointing dial... Not bad, but it doesn't offer anything great over the X-wing... A 3K-turn, while nice, is too easily blocked, and 5 forward is meh...

The numbers are correct. They are visible in earlier E-wing layouts.

so basically the same dial as the Firespray with exception of the additional 5 straight and slightly different greens.

 

Also it has the distinction of the only ship so far that can perform all 5 straight moves, all others are 1-3, 1-4 & 2-5.

 

Still wish it had 1 turns though, even if they were red it would have been OK

It looks ike this is legit, given the Tactician and Decoy cards. Some store must have gotten their Imdaar Alpah Kits and busted out the spoilers...

Yup, this is originally from a post on NOVA Squadron's facebook page.  One of their local store TOs opened the Imdar Alpha stuff and posted it.  Same with the Tactician and Decoy spoilers.

That E-Wing dial is kinda underwhelming. The five green maneuvers and the choice of a 3K or a 4K is kinda nice, though.

Just a note, that is more maneuvers than any other ship in the game I think. Regular fighters seem to have 15 maneuver options, the fast ships, a-wings and interceptors get 16, this one has 17. I think that may end up being pretty significant.

Thanks, Troy

I actually rather like this dial. Worth noting I think this is the only ship in the game with every single straight maneuver. It can't turn on a dime but other than that it's pretty nice.

The dial is very fitting of the ship.  The E-Wing is a crossbreed of a X-Wing and a A-Wing as is the dial.

Not having a green 2 turn or any 1 turn is a shame but understandable as it would make it a powerhouse. The lack of green bank 1 is disappointing.

I suppose you can't have everything though.

For 1 point R2 Astromech will solve that problem for you. The only downside is that it uses up a droid slot but its not a significant loss since the E-wing also has enough upgrade slots to make it a beast.

Dang, I was really hoping for a green hard 2. Still not bad and it still has plenty of green. Throw on some advanced sensors and get good with barrel roll and you may just have a meaner B-Wing. Awesome.
