Well in fact the B-Wing also has an autoblaster with it, a short ranged, shotgun-like weapon as i suppose. It is possible that this weapon is rather meant for other ships that can have cannons but there is no real candidate for it as the shuttle will be probably the least manoeuvrable ship there is and the slave is not exactly a real dogfighter either with its huge base… I guess it could well be the B-Wing it is intended for.

I mean it is pretty clear the B-Wing will not have an interceptor-like dial but i bet it will have more possibilities (even if some will be red manoeuvers) than a Y-Wing. Also i don't know if a fighter at that price without a turret option is really okay if he has a bad manoeuver dial. For what would we pay all those points if the ship gets shut down hard by anything manoeuvrable hugging it, while it is defenseless for it's dial. If it was somewhat cheaper i would agree with you that it would be rather sluggish, but like this it might be a competent albeit slow dogfighter…

Set up your B-wings like Blue Squadron in the Battle of Endor: they do they heavy hitting while A-wings provide fighter support.
