I am kind of disappointed  that the Sabre squardron ship is now obsolete since it is the same cost as a Royal guard pilot.  Kind of a bummer.


8 Tie Fighter's, 2 Tie Advanced, 4 Tie Interceptor's, 4 Royal Guard Tie Interceptor's, 2 Firespray 31's, 2 Shuttle's, 5 Tie Bomber's, 1 Tie Defender, 1 Tie Phantom

7 X-Wing's, 2 Y-Wing's, 4 A-Wing's, 2 YT-1300's, 4 B-Wing's, 3 Hawk 290's, 1 Rebel Transport, 1 Corellian Corvette

and counting......

A sabre with vet ins is 22 a royal guard at ps 6 is 22 with an upgrade available.  So yes youre right, but who will run sabres anymore, really?

People who need to trade the Pilot skill for an upgrade?

Someone who doesn't need the PS 6 and thus wants to save the points.

I want to run a team of 4 royal guards with PTl, but I'll still run sabers in my MaulerVet/Howl/Backstabber/SaberPTL/SaberPTL build

The revised question isn't so much "why would you run a SSP over a RGP" but why would you ever run an SSP+VI over a RGP when you are trying to qualify for the Royal Guard title card and the extra upgrade.  I can't think of any real reason to spend 22 points on the SSP+VI when you can just take the RGP assuming you have the RGP which you should if you also have the title card.
