Cracken Hit and Run

Recommended Posts

I haven't used General Cracken yet, so I'm thinking of trying him out with this list. My main concern is how it will do against bomber heavy lists. I expect to be going speed 3 much of the time, naturally, and use navigate commands liberally. I would appreciate any thoughts and suggestions for improving it.

I like it; I run very similar lists frequently.

You really want H9's on the MC30's here. You're not going to get many shots with them, particularly with Cracken pushing you toward speed 3, so each one really needs to count. I'd drop TF to pay for one--your squadrons are there to block, not to kill, exactly, so you're getting less out of her here than you would in other lists. The H9 will also turn the 30 into an efficient, effective, and reliable flotilla and corvette popper.

I'd probably swap Tycho and the YT-2400 for three more A-wings. Getting that ninth deployment is a big deal in out-deploying bombers, especially rebels who rarely have more than 8 deployments in carrier lists. Because you really want the 30's lined up to cut off their target, hat extra deployment is going to give you more mileage than the YT-2400's rogue. Losing Tycho's scatter and slippery wiles will hurt more, but you just have to play them a little more conservatively. Best part is you can still push them all in one turn if you need to, if you just take squadron tokens on Turn 1.

Finally, if you drop the two flotilla titles, you'll be at 391 by my napkin math, giving you the points for the second H9. Otherwise, if you want a bid, leave the H9 off of Admonition.
