I don’t see the “K”. I see 4 red maneuvers at speed 3, presumably the two turns and the 2 sloop/trolls, but not a spare red to be a k-turn. 

You are absolutely right. I was switching back and forth between tabs on my tablet when jotting down the dial. Must have lost count between flips.

Could also mean access to secondary weapon slots, but 3 attack is more likely. 

Possibly, though I’m not seeing mention of it having missiles or torps in the lore.

I'm expecting it to be the E-wing/TIE Defender of the Separatists. A heavily shielded/armoured heavy hitting triple Cannon potentially bombing type ship. 

The only card I can see is Grievous's and it looks like:

"When you perform a  *something* you may *do that something again*" double tap? Double coordinate? Double Evade?

 

Thinking stat line of:

3, 2, 6, 3 with target lock, but then the question is focus or calculate? And force points?

Yep, lasers only. Probably going to be a central coordination programming (IE Kracken) carrier in addition to a 3 attack primary. Not that just having a 3 attack primary is an issue, it really simplifies things. :)

I think more like a Bugatti. Roll's tend to be a more conservative design. 

I was about to disagree, thinking of modern cars.  But pulling up some vintage cars, totally correct.  It does look a lot like a vintage Rolls or Bentley, but Bugatti of the same era just matches more.  It all makes sense, though, that it's super-vintage.  The Prequels are a George Lucas homage to 30s camp sci-fi, for good or ill (mostly ill, IMHO).

Most likely will have 2 shields as only 2 shield tokens shown in kit, and vultures have none.

Maybe fewer, if there's a Shield Upgrade in there.  The kit comes with 48 upgrade cards, and it'd kind of make sense for there to be a few mod slot upgrades in there.

6 seems like an awful lot of hull for something with... not much hull area.

And I think the coordinate or focus question was referring to Grevious. He should get the focus, but I wouldn’t be shocked if they gave him a double calculate instead, especially if his card appears to have the appropriate wording for doubling the effect of calc.

I think the suggestion of it being similar to a Defender or E-wing is probably on the money. As all other CIS starfighters were less bulky and seen in greater numbers. Its also going to carry Grievous, and with a main character like that as its ace, you'd imagine it'll be fairly strong.

Maybe a statline of 3/3/4/2 - @Redblock stated there is 2 shields in the pack so its safe to assume it has 2 shields. There could also be a 'Soulless One' title giving the base model a little more beef, similar to what they did with the Delta-7b config/title.

No ordnance though, maybe a cannon slot at a stretch.

I don't think it's going to be a super-fighter, in fact I wouldn't be surprised if the Confederacy didn't get one at all (I don't think the Republic will either). I would say it's going to be a cross between an X-wing and a Y-wing in terms of role. X-wing stat line 3/2/4/2 and actions with a device slot, and maybe Boost instead of Barrel Roll, but no access to both.

Maybe he can double boost, Grevious' whole thing was running away when things started to look bad.

Maybe not the Belbullab as a super fighter, the Rogues are a distinct possibility though. Especially Xanadu Blood. :)
