 I did notice that one of the Falcon pilots have a 1 Pilot Skill Value.  Leia maybe?

 

 

So what are you trying to say?

 

 

Just assuming that Leia is not a good pilot.  Or maybe its C-3PO.

 BTW, I updated the spreadsheet with all the information I could find.

 

Looks like the A-wing picture was changed and corrected.  No Barrel Roll for A-wings.

Looking at the Falcon, I think the two lowest pilots are different YT-1300s.  A base model for the lowest skill and another smuggler for the next lowest skill.  I think that Neib and Chewie are gunners or co-pilots, but I did not see them on cards.

The Intercepter second highest rated pilot appears to start with a T, which to me makes him Turr.  3rd higest is something with the 181st I think.

Anyone figure anything else out, I will update the spreadsheet.

 

Thanks,

Duncan

 In addition to Concussion Missiles and Cluster Missiles the A-wing appears to have Homing Missiles. Anybody want to second that? If it's true it would be pretty sweet!

EDIT: And I believe the other upgrade reads "Push Through" but it's impossible to know for sure at this point.

EDIT 2: And do my eyes deceive me or does the Slave I come with seismic charges? Danger!

It could also be "Push Throttle".

 Good call on the Homing Missile.  Both Slave I and the A-wing seem to have it.  That would match what we saw in Episode II from Slave I.

I also agree that looks like the wonderful seismic charge.  Based on that, I suspect that upgrade icon is for Mines.

Once I get enough stuff, I will post the spreadsheet again.  Hopefully next Friday we will get a proper preview with card images.

 

Thanks,

Duncan

 Dude!  I just totally noticed that the right most upper row upgrade card is Luke Skywalker.  This picture is Luke in the gun turret from ANH.

The next card appears to be Nieb Numb, the picture is him in a red suit, you can just see the edge of his face and the title looks like his name.  

After that is Chewbacca.  The picture may be an arm, and the name appears to start CHE.  So I think that is where we will see the "co-pilots" and "gunners".

Thanks,

Duncan

OOpps, Sorry Raven Blade. In my own fanboy rage, I missed the fact it was a Super Star Destroyer.  Thanks for pointing that out! haha

In regards to the A-wing, i'm sure I read in the rogue squadron series that A-wings could move their guns 180 degrees so they could fire vertically aswell as horizontally.

Also, in the A-Wing's description I call foul saying the A-Wing had a affect on a Star Destroyer. The pilot got hit, slammed into the star destroyer's command bay when their shields were down. Bad call FFG! Love the game though.

 

 

 

Prior to the A-wing crashing in RoTJ 2 A-Wings took out the bridge deflector shield on the Executor, which allowed other A-wing to slam into the bridge otherwise A-wing would have hit the bridge deflector shield and blown up probably taking the shields out but leaving the Bridge intact.  So all in all it took 3 A-wings to take down one of most deadly captial ships of it's time, so maybe not a Star destroyer but a super star destroyer yes.

Actually the A wing Guns have a 360 degree firing arc because the would flip them back and shoot the pursuing crafts making them a nasty fighter interceptor.
