    Because you can't perform an action twice in a round the answer is no. It doesn't matter where the extra actions come from you still can't perform the same action twice.

    Mara Jade, Lone wolf. Pass all the stress around and get some help on your attack with lone wolf. Obviously if you're running him with a mini swarm find something different for lone wolf.

    Played against a list like this in a tournament and tired it later in some friendly matches.
     
    Vessery with adrenaline rush or vi depending on meta or taste (36)
    Carnor Jax with PTL and either hull upgrade or stealth device (32)
    2 scimitars (32)
     
    For the points, I find the scimitar (16) to better target lock mook than an academy with tc (14) when you spend the fighter's action to TL you're foregoing the focus or evade which means that the fighter's extra agility won't help you near as much as 3 extra hull.
     
    If you set it up right, you can created a nasty furball that your opponents can't focus or evade in. Some people don't like the bomber's dial but that 5 k turn can get you out of the furball and you can make a new one next turn all over again.

    That's a BIG if.  Even TIEs who take an Evade action can get one-shotted, and if your opponent focus fires they'll likely not get a chance to take that second evade action, let alone the third.  Bombers might get focused down, but they sure aren't getting one-shotted.
     
    Plus of course, if you're taking the Evade action, you're not taking a Target Lock, which is kind of the entire point of flying Academies with Targeting Computer alongside Vessery in the first place.

    barabelsftw reacted to Osoroshii in IG-2000 Title - Does it work when you've lost a ship?   
    Along with covering that they will have to cover the Injuried Pilot damage card as well. There is a gray area in these interactions and I would not be so quick to say I know how FFG will rule on these. Does the injured Pilot card take the ability from both IG-88s? does the ship with the damage card retain the other ability from the title?

    I like using them as target lock goons with Vessery. I have played against a list with 2 scimitars, Vessery, and Carnor with some upgrades splashed around on Vess and Jax. It makes for a nasty furball if properly set up.

    Sure, a year ago. Probably wouldn't happen at a big tournament today. (Haven't you heard that the X-Wing is the worst ship in the game now? =P)

    I keep thinking "IG-88 can take 2 canons. I bet it can fire both at once."
    If I'm right, I can see fitting one out with an ion and a flechette canon for all kinds of control shenanigans.

    The Phantom Menace

    Four Sigmas
    No upgrades

    16 attack die at range 2 - 3
    20 attack die at range 1
     
    Tight formation and cloak as first action and then never cloak again. Pick a priority target you want deleted such as a large 360 turret as an example.
    Decloak for two forward. Reveal dial, move four forward (effectively seven forward due to ship base in total), focus.

    Weather the storm of fire, which is either going to be a three or four die attack from the turret, if you are lucky, nothing else will be pointing at you. Return fire and remove the large ship and a potential 50 - 60 points from his list. You will either have three ships to do this or four (one being held together by duck tape) to get the job done.

    Then start turning and focus firing the rest. You will lose a ship or two in the knife fight but hey, remember the simultaneous fire rule and you will be fine.

    Obviously timing is everything in this kind of list as your alpha strike MUST remove the biggest threat or remove enough enemy ships to be able to handle the return fire. If you don't, you will be picked apart and crumple.
     
    I have witnessed this list clean house in three turns against Dash and Farlander, take out a Decimator in one turn of shooting and also take out four TIES in a seven TIE swarm in one exchange of shooting for zero loses. Obviously this kind of thing relies heavily on the red die Gods but it has the potential to do it, which is scary.
     
    Just forget the cloak action after the first turn.

    With phantoms, fat dashes, and exposed ei'ed decimators, being able to dish out stress is awesome. I think Kath with a rebel captive and a mangler cannon will be a good ship to fly.
