    Hantheman got a reaction from Engine25 in The dorsal turret should be limited only to the rear firing arc.   
    Nope "dorsal" means back - that is correct - but it does not mean rear-wards. Rather it refers to the back as a part of your anatomy.
    In the case of an aircraft it means the top of the fuslage. This is a reference to how when fish swim and how birds fly, their spinal portion (ie their back) is facing upwards.

    Hantheman got a reaction from Punning Pundit in Tie Avenger as the Imperial Starviper   
    Seriously doubt any Rebel or Imp ship will have the SV's dial - FFG seems to have the idea that scum need to be maneuverable a low speeds (almost full set of 1s) while Rebel/Imps are maneuverable at high speeds  (almost full set of 3s). This is aside from the Z-95 and Y-Wing of course.
     
    The SV's main problem is that the pilots don't really show what the ship can do - the non-uniques are generally poor for points, both nameds are dangerous vs low to mid-PS but not so good vs high PS without tuning (My meta is filled with high PS). The SV could really use some new high PS pilots - it's interesting but just hard to play in my current meta.

    Hantheman got a reaction from dewbie420 in Wave 9 Speculation : S&V Shadowcaster?   
    It has 3 unique pilot/co-pilots so its very likely it'll appear in a future wave. But it still doesn't have a class name or any background - until LSG gets that straightened out I doubt it'll be making an appearance.

    Hantheman got a reaction from Warpman in Scum ace style pack?   
    If that happens, it would most likely be a Most Wanted II where ships from the other 2 factions are used in S&V. Since 1 Large Imp and 3 Small Rebels were used previously, if a second set does get produced, ! Large Rebel and 3 Small Imps is not out of the question. The TIE Bomber, TIE Defender are both excellent contenders - both are ships that are poorly represented in tournaments, and in old EU lore were used by the Gand, the Nami, the Zann Consortium and even Rogue Squadron. The basic TIE Fighter also was also used by some pirates and the Zann Consortium but it's role is already filled by the Z-95 in the Scum list. The last could be a totally new non-TIE ship with association with both the Empire and Scum such as the Alpha-class Xg-1 or an old Clone Wars era ship, mostly decommed by the Empire and used by Scum such as the Alpha-3 Nimbus, V-19 Torrent, Belbullab-22, Eta-2 Actis.
     
    There is possibility a new TFA Falcon in the works, it's possible to be a multi faction.
     
    Aces are fixes for ships that don't see enough tournament play. The Scyk, StarViper and maybe the Kihraxz could use a popularity boost.

    What a great story and a little tribute in X-wing would be a nice touch. She's canon now too!

    Given the current infatuation with original Ralph McQuarrie designs in the new canon (Rebels and the T70 in TFA), I would not be surprised if more of his unused concepts do get made.
