Wheres Jyn? What about external racks? That profudity doesnt seem that scary.

 

But we don’t have a fancy card for racks like we do for Rapid Reload. He wants it to be pretty. 

Though I do think that Jyn on Garel’s Honor (which I assume is tucked into Profundity) would make for an awesome first activation. Put Hondo on a Flotilla so that you can give it a squad token for the boarding party while also taking a CF dial for maximum effort

edit: and Contested Outpost would be much superior to PIC, imo, particularly because of Raddus’ ability. Once they have committed to the OP, you can deploy to catch them off guard, while simultaneously doubling your Command dial count on the Outpost. 

Opening Salvo isn’t a terrible choice, unless you’re facing Corvette MSU. Then it sucks, big time. But for the same reason as CO being a good choice, Station Assault wouldn’t be terrible either. Get them to overcommit to destroying the stations, then deploy in a flanking fashion. 

Solar Corona is good, but I think the Corona could easily back fire, depending on how you want to bring in the big ship. No real suggestions here. I’ve struggled to come up with a Blue objective that I like for my Raddus Fleets

Downgrade Rapid reload to external racks (twice). Now you have a decent bid and 5 activations plus the option on the Strategic adviser.

I would probably go for most wanted on the red objective.

Without accuracy generation, I think the MC75s really want Intel Officers to make the most of their black dice. Strategic adviser looks great, but IO is hard to pass up, especially with two in the list. Any thoughts on that?

I was thinking about IO on the profundity and I do like the idea of Hondo with Jyn on the Hammerhead. I will have to play around and re write the list. 

 

As for objectives it is supposed to be most wanted not opening salvo. I'll make some edits later in the day and repost the list with those changes.

If you get a moment, watch one of JJ's log files from the world cup with his Raddus MC75. It's truly been terrifying, as he has demonstrated (via two resounding wins over quality opponents) that the Raddus drop can be a game changer.

 

I think an effective Raddus MC75 wants to burst to destroy something quick. Your MC75 looks more like my Sato 75 that wants to knife fight for multiple rounds with as many targets as it can goad into a fight.

Also, I am truly thinking that the MC75 might be the ship that Assault Concussion Missiles was built for. Because of it's limited accuracy generation and desire to fight big ships (often with ECM), reducing the effectiveness of the redirects is huge.

You cannot equip two of the same upgrade to the same ship.
