Upsilon-class Shuttle Expansion Pack

Recommended Posts

So a couple of things.

 

First, if the PS 6 ship is 34 points, there is a really good chance that the Ps2 Generic is under 33 points. Possibly 30 points, that means we could run 3 of them with some modifications. If the dial is ok, and look at the Shadowcaster.. who knows! 36 damage behind 12 attack dice is pretty good.  Now to wonder if the Ps2 ship will get an EPT.

 

My question is what is the other action symbol on the generic?

I'm loving the idea of running this with emperor and whisper, plus whatever else.

Let whisper have free a action, she evades, then focus or barrel roll, plus kallus. Oh the joy

Hell even a firespray with recon specialist. Gets fre evade action, double focus, pop counter measures.

I want see more imperial firesprays

Elite seems to be Ren only

Ps 4 doesn't have it

 

Yea, so the Elite lets guess is 29 points, (4) (1) (6) (6), focus, target lock, Coordinate. With System, Crew, Crew, Tech, Tech. You could Recon Specialist it to get Double Focus, for 32 points. Thats not a bad attack/defense profile

Upsilon wont just replace Lambdas role because its more expensive i doubt you can easily fit 2 aces and Palpatine into a list with it.

 

I agree. 2 Budget Aces, maybe, like Inquisitor and Omega Leader, but then the Upsilon is the majority of your damage output.

There are only 3 Tech right now, Sensor Cluster, Weapons Guidance, and Com Relay. Not a lot of choice there.

 

Looks like it is coming with two entirely new 'tech' upgrades (2 of each)*, which the Quadjumper shares one of.

 

So...5 types of tech upgrades for it to pick from?

 

* Well, at least two new ones, we can't see the upgrade types on the top row of the fan, of course...

Thant's not even what I intend. I've never run a Lambda/Palp for that matter. I just think the Upsilon is dead sexy looking, and I like its base attack pool.

 

I've never played much with my Lamda, but I can see myself playing the Upsilon just for sheer cool factor.

I'm so happy about this.  

 

4 attack die, more expensive.  Won't replace the beloved original shuttle.  Fills a different role.  Has coordinate.  Has more health.  Looks good and fearsome. 

 

Lol. Finally expert handling shuttle.  And Imperial firesprays.  

 

Ohh. Maybe even PTL upsi.

Btw, guys, lets call it the upsi, because if someone gets lazy and types "ups" in lower case its too easy to be hard to read.  

That, or you have to capitalize UPS, and paint your ship brown.

Sensor Cluster, Weapons Guidance, 2 recon specs, and Reinforced Deflectors for sub-50 points. x2

 

 

vs triple Uboat with no obstructions: green die is modified to an evade for all 3 shots, then the ship regens a shield after the torpedo hits for 3. It takes all 6 torpedos to kill one, assuming a torpedo doesnt botch. Then the other laughs at 2 die turrets the rest of the game

 

Vs Dengaru- DNGAF about Zuckuss crew, ignores half (rounded down) of dengar's damage, and more than half of manaru's.

 

Vs 8 tie swarm- on average, green die + focus tokens ignores 6 damage (of 8  possible) a round.

 

Vs Imperial Aces: Weapons Guidance'd 4 die attacks, beef to shrug off 3 and 4 die attacks.

It still probably only flies forward though.  With limited mobility.  

 

I start to get really queasy about flying an expensive ship I can't get to fire.  (Although I do really well with the Lambda)

 Besides the unknown ones on the upper row, there is at least one in the Heroes of the Resistance expansion. So what is known there should be six, but maybe more.
