Scum and Villainy 50: A-pocalyspe

Recommended Posts

Next chance I get I'm going to try this out, aim is to get in some snapshots and hit hard with Swarm Leader

2x Green Squadron w/Snapshot, Juke, Title, Chardaan Refit (21 pts each)
Jess Pava w/Swarm Leader, R2-D6, Integrated Astromech (29 pts)
Braylen Stramm w/Operations Specialist, Title (28 pts)
99 total

Sadly there aren't points for stressbot on Braylen. I'm still debating what the best Operations Specialist carrier would be. Heff Tober/Blue Squadron Pathfinder with Jan or Tactician could be a candidate, but would be pretty hard to fly in formation, and the only other option is a HWK, which would be pretty easy to kill.

I sided with juke in the great crackshot/ juke wars of 2316. But if you drop to crackshot...

This is as close as I can get for an M9-G8, Weapons Engineer, AND Ops Spec out.

M9ed Snaps

The A-Wings are less survivable without Autothrusters, but very efficient output of damage though. Adding this to my list of Snap Shot A-Wing lists variations to try, although I think I still like my current variation with a Gray Stresshog since that helps restrict opposing ship's movements which creates easier Snap Shot setups.

Has anyone else tried M9-G8 and Weapons Engineer out with snap/crack A Wings?

I beat a tie swarm with it but haven't played it since.  

I think I had Norra with ptl in that list

I have. Snap does more damage for sure, you lose out on your primaries by losing ops specialist and a little control with r3-a2. It's not bad if you're looking for firepower, personally for big guns I prefer using Jess Pava.

I flew this at campaign against cancer and had a blast with it. My favorite part was EMPing a 7 TIE swarm then swooping in with my a wings and causing havoc.

I haven't flown the Tie variants yet. My biggest worry is lack of high damage, accurate shot like Nora or Jess Pava bring. Did that come up at all when you were flying this?

Yeah it's hard to push damage thru on high aglility ships with the TIE's without snap shot. Rex worked more as a mini Biggs since people got annoyed with him. 

I may drop Rex and add auto thrusters to all 3 A wings and a p-rocket to one of the a wings.

I haven't even tried procket versions. Sounds Terrifying though. Those A wings start to be expensive and not throwaways at that point though.

I'll try this out in the next couple days if I can get in some games and report back. I've been unsure about how good R3 -A2 will be without the ability to doublestress but there's enough stress-vulnerable stuff out there that it seems worth a shot.

Its not about the stress, its about making their movements predictable for Snap Shot.

Good point, will keep that in mind when choosing who to shoot with Braylen. My main worry with this (aside from positioning) are higher pilot skill ships wiping out an A-Wing or Jess before they can shoot, but I think the snaps with crack should be enough to limit those higher PS ships to one or two attacks.

I look at it this way, if you can get a snap before they get PS killed its ok. There's not much you can do to avoid PS kills other than an evade token and prayer.
