Referencing my earlier post. This is definitely the best dual firespray list I've fielded (where it's dual firesprays only, no support ships).
Not only does it have a winning record at the moment, but when I lose it's usually very close. My earlier builds had more losses, and more bad losses as well.
The extra defense from dual hull upgrades and dual recon specialists was clearly the way to go. And my offense is still strong as well.
The two lists I've had most trouble with are 3 bounty hunters and rebel swarms, specifically BBBAA. The 3 bounty hunters is probably the worst matchup, as with only 2 ships shooting for me it makes it hard to take down a enemy ship right away like with any other list. Plus it's 3 guns shooting at you, and they all have 2 evade so they don't go down super easy. Dual falcon is much easier to beat with my build than 3 bh's.
As for BBAA, I have beaten it once, but overall it's a struggle. A lot of hit points, and a lot of attack dice coming against you. Not to mention all the potential action denial from 5 ships. A tie swarm is more favorable as they have to fly together, whereas the rebel swarm doesn't so they can cut you off everywhere.
