Poe Dameron's The Last Jedi X-Wing

Recommended Posts

According to the article "The X-Wing (an Incom-FreiTek T-70, to be precise) has, according to Rian Johnson, been specially modified by Resistance engineers, with a temporary accelerator pod affixed to the aft section. According to The Last Jedi director, the pod, when primed, increases Dameron's speed, allowing him to outrun First Order cannon emplacements. It's just a temporary boost and will burn out quickly but it's enough to get beyond the barrage of turbo laser fire from First Order Star Destroyers"

His ship has been fitted with "a temporary accelerator pod", so it looks as though this would just be an upgrade card if it made its way into the game.

Discardable SLAM upgrade as a modification, perhaps?

Of course, this would be tough on the modification-dependent X-wings.

Unless they had some sort of title that allowed broader customization options. Maybe a discount on their shiny toys, to help their jousting once again.

Burnout SLAM would fit.

Yeah, a Burnout SLAM modification sounds about right.

As it sounds like Poe uses the boost to outrun cannon fire, then maybe it could increase the ships agility as well. Maybe add a focus effect for all defense dice that round. I think that if it was a one use modification then it would need some other benefits to justify taking it.

A mod that is a sort of combo of Burnout SLAM and Countermeasures for T-70s could be interesting.

edit: minus the discarding of a TL part of Countermeasures. Better for pricing and they already have access to the Black One title.

No, that would be velocity.

Acceleration stops when there is no net force. All acceleration is temporary unless you want to throw out the second law of thermodynamics.

Well, can we say that all acceleration is temporary unless you have an infinite energy source providing the pushing force

i don't think he is literally going to be out running the shots.. more that it is meant to let him go from 'long' range to 'point blank' rapidly, minimizing the time they have to shoot at him.. then once he's up close, to let him fly faster than the turrets can turn to track him.

in effect, he will literally be arc dodging.

so the burnout SLAM would actually work well.. it would let you cross the play area rapidly, and re-position for a good shot.

A burnout SLAM analogue in a tech upgrade might be cool.

****, with Snap, it'd be downright terrifying - Speed 4 straight, free boost, speed 4 straight.....

Then you can't shoot soooooo... meh.

A Burnout SLAM Tech would be GREAT.  Especially when the First Order Bomber drops.

Poor Punisher though :(
