I'm tinkering with a TFA/STM build. I might snake that Draven loadout for the Pelta. My only hold up is Hondo is currently in the slot and points are a little too tight for me to feel comfortable with Phoenix Home. I might leave Hondo at home for a bit to see if I really need him. 3 anti-squad dice coming out of the Pelta is extremely tempting.

Early Warning System (EWS): https://armadaihaveyounow.blogspot.no/2018/02/wave-7-updages-early-warning-system.html

I go into some length, as this may well be the most important upgrade* in this wave.

* most important normal, non-meta alerting upgrade - Raddus, Pryce, Bail, maybe SAdv are all more important for the overall meta.

Good article! By the way, not a big deal but even though you mention the MC30 many times it's missing from the actual list of ships that can take EWS.

Today's wave 7 goodness is the Heavy Ion Emplacements: https://armadaihaveyounow.blogspot.no/2018/02/wave-7-upgrades-heavy-ion-emplacements.html

I think this is an important w7 upgrade, with several uses beyond the Raider-2 DCaps/HIE build.

Totally wasn't discussing using a B with HIE earlier today. Nope.

Commander: Commander Sato

Assault: Advanced Gunnery
Defense: Contested Outpost
Navigation: Solar Corona

MC75 Ordnance Cruiser (100)
• Commander Sato (32)
• Strategic Adviser (4)
• Ordnance Experts (4)
• Early Warning System (7)
• External Racks (3)
• Assault Concussion Missiles (7)
= 157 Points

Pelta Assault Ship (56)
• General Draven (3)
• Intensify Firepower! (6)
• Assault Proton Torpedoes (5)
= 70 Points

CR90 Corvette B (39)
• Heavy Ion Emplacements (9)
• Jaina's Light (2)
= 50 Points

GR-75 Medium Transports (18)
• Toryn Farr (7)

= 29 Points

Squadrons:
• 4 x Z-95 Headhunter Squadron (28)

If Sato: CR90A, so it can shoot blue at LONG range :D

Ok, too complicated, but fun!

CR90As have Turbolasers and the Bs have ions. 

I must say the MC-75 is definitely the go to Sato boat as it is just perfect for his ability. I have never thought that a ship would make me want to play a specific admiral like Sato.

You list ISD 2 and Kurt twice right after each other. Removing the redundant mention makes the number of rebs-Imp ships the same.

I just think that the rebels need a medium ship with offensive retrofits and ion cannons. But what kind of ship would it be I wonder....

Rather than going all in on antisquadrons, I see it as a better tool when you have spare points from a more normalized list, say 2 MC75s that both take it and just add up standard flack plus ord pod shots. I think building it up like in your examples is too large of an opportunity cost.

Something more like this:

I agree - and have written as much I the article, that some of the sample builds are a little over the top.
