Mangler Dash With Escorts

Recommended Posts

How does this sound?

 

Dash Rendar (36)

  • "Mangler" Cannon (4)
  • Outrider Title (5)
  • Veteran Instincts (1)

Dagger Squadron Pilot (24)

  • Fire-Control System (2)

Dagger Squadron Pilot (24)

  • Fire-Control System (2)

Squad Total = 98 Points

What I'm thinking here is that VI Dash with the "Mangler" Cannon will be able to hunt Phantoms, all three ships can be used to focus-fire a Decimator or Fat Han build, the B-Wings stay out of Predator territory, and Autoceptors will have to contend with beefier Dash escorts than say, three Tala Squadron Pilots.

What do you guys think? Workable at all? Need to scrap it and try something a bit more standard? Input and constructive criticism welcome.

Seems fairly solid to me, for all the reasons you listed.  You will need to be careful with Dash against control lists, since you cant to the super dash barrel roll/boost "I do what I want!" silliness.

I flew against a mangler dash at a store championship with my 4Bwing squad.  I can tell you that I absolutely hated that mangler cannon, as all of the hull damage cards he landed were crits, including a direct hit to take one out early.  Mangler is proving to be quite strong against low agility ships.
