For the sake of variety, I've been running the two popular variations of the Rebel Convoy;
2 Outer Rim Smugglers
2 Golds w/ Ion Turrets
2 Outer Rim Smugglers w/ Anti-Pursuit Lasers
2 Rebel Operatives w/ Ion Turrets
Does anyone have any opinions or advice on which of these two lists ultimately fairs better in the current state of the game (pre-Wave 4)?
I know you can mess with it by swapping in Rookie Pilots and other things, but I'm more interested in looking at the ORS/Ion Turret shooting spree variant, and how viable they are, or aren't.
The dilemma for me comes down to the extra hit points on the Y-Wing build versus the potential damage from the APL/Hawk build.
Instinctively, I feel that the Y-Wing build is just a safer bet, as I've never been confidant in the HWK's ability to not die a fiery death if your opponent wants it gone.
The Y can also put out more damage with the Primary Weapon if you get the chance, and has the K-Turn if you have to swing back in a hurry.
Basically, all I see from the HWK is that it gives you points to slap APL's on the Smugglers, which is only potential damage.
Am I missing some other crucial bit of wisdom that would lead one to hands-down take the HWK build over the Y-Wing build?
