Nah Scum will be getting a Corona class Frigate with Scum Han & Lando  cards and slave II..

 

 

So Scum's corvette will be a New Republic frigate. Yeeeah, that makes sense.

 

Personally, I would love the Crusader (with the Protectorate Fighter), but we are probably going to get some trash ship that appears in Solo. Slave II (PES) would be a good addition to the game, but not in a $100 pack.

Very torn right now. Didn't know what that first one was until now, and I love the look. Even better if it's Mandalorian. I know what that first second is, and I like it. Plus Grakkus.

Still have to say, from visual appeal, that first one might be the winner. It's so cool, I might buy two just to have an extra one to paint!

@Kieransi Jabba's yacht is somewhat unlikely bc it would disappointing to release since Jabba came with the C-Roc, and if they released Jabba with both that would be kinda stupid.

The only competitor I see is the Wild Karrde and while it fits the Scum aesthetic I would prefer if they went with the Mandalorian Corvette as I would prefer our large epic ship to be a actual combat ship and not a refitted transport.

Interesting, I think that would pair well with a protectorate starfighter.  Maybe the boost could be immunity to TLT's. 

Would be a good one, also could make it Zann Consortium version. 

 

Or just Hondo Ohnaka's pirate cruiser and small disc-shaped pirate fighters

I think Hondo's ship would be a very different base and I just don't see them adding a ship that hasn't been released yet as the small companion ship.

If we are going with what ships needs a buff, what springs to mind for me is the Z-95 or the G-1A. 

Like @Odanan pointed out, getting the Wild Karrde with Mara Jade in a Z-95 would be thematic and awesome. This is the one that I'm hoping for the most.

if we go with something like Star Jewel, I think the G-1A would be a good companion piece.

I'm all for more  Mandalorians.

Star Jewel has 6 Z95s as its on board escort, so a Z95 model with (ideally 6) "star jewel Guard" titles would be awesome, and makes waaay more sense with Star Jewel than Mandalorean Corvette(since z95s arent mandal motors)

Z95 weirdo ace lists are an delightful possibility, maybe a support ability goon or ace could ring back swarms too

I don’t get the love for the Star Jewel or Wild Karrde.  Only Disney can dream up uglier ships.  Give me the Crusader Corvette any day over those two space turds.  It’s even frickin’ MANDALORIAN!  Like others have said, I’d like my Sum corvette to be military grade, thank you.  Nobody does military grade better than Mandalorians.  It’s what they do.

The story of Forces of Corruption was among the worst of Legends because of how much of a Gary Stu Tiber Zann was, it probably makes them not want to include FoC characters with the FoC ship (Crusader). But then again, the way Disney writes...

 

We all know it will just be two Gozantis glued tail end to tail end.

Well, to be fair, it's not the look that makes me want the Wild Karrde. The characters it would bring with it like Talon Karrde, Mara Jade, and Ghent are ones I enjoy and I think could bring something good to the game. 

Now that said, I'm not gonna be disappointed if something like the Crusader Corvette comes out instead, bringing more Mandalorians with it. But I think I still pull more for the ships that'll bring me characters I'm feeling more nostalgic for.

the wilde karrde is a friggin dust buster, ugliest stupid ship design in Star Wars next to the Tie bottle rocket(sorry, "skipray blastboat").

Star Jewel is one of my favorites, but you dont need to worry about seeing it in game, since its wider than an Arquitens Class SD and near as long. at CR90 scale it'd be over foot wide

I guess if we get the Wild Karrde I dont need to get a bag to transport my ships....

Just hollow it out.....maybe reinforce the "HANDLE"

I mean this paint job makes it a lot less ugly but Mandalorians > flying briefcase.

this is actually a really good job heres some more pictures

The Wild Karrde looks like a hand vacuum cleaner, in space.

The Star Jewel looks like Jabba's sail barge... in space.

The mandalorian corvette they have posted above, I had never seen before, but it looks much more original, plausible and good looking than any of the others.
It does look like a corvette-class ship, without being a copy of something else "... in space".

Star jewel looks like a Klingon Star Destroyer got sold at police auction, lol. 

other than an arrowhead-esque prow, the lines arent even close to the sail barge

Yea z95s don't need any help. More pilots wouldnt hurt though at some point.

The G1 is by far the worst scum ship currently, much as I'd like a buff for the firespray.

More Z-95 pilots would be a big help. You don't see too many of them anymore.

Also we get that sweet paint job.

But yeah the g1-a is the ship in most need of help though.

Hoping for the Mandalorian Corvette since 2 years ago.

Wild Karde has the nice StarWars used look, but would once again be modified civilian craft suddenly beating military grade cruisers. And that vaccum cleaner resemblance just kills it for many people.

Star Jewel is just not practical scale wise, FFG would have to shrink it a lot, and even then the spines would have to be made retractable. We also have Jabba in the game, would be strange to release his ride w/o him (or useless double) almost as an afterthought. And Jewel is bland.

Plus, Scum is also mercenaries! A dedicated military cruiser type opens up a lot more scenario possibilities than a transport or a yacht (mostly just escort or ambush type scenarios - we have already the huge GR75 and the C-roc as well as many small freighters for these).

 

Edit: should read corvettes instead of cruisers (albeit SW is a mess regarding ship type names), thanks @SEApocalypse

Not really. We have a civilian cruiser, build to specs  for the imperial navy form of the C-ROC and no military cruisers at all in the game. Both CR90 and Imperial Raider are just corvettes, not cruisers. And the imperial assault cruiser is basically the older version of the C-ROC. 

The issue with the Wild Karrde is that the ship itself is so heavily modified that it can indeed deal with imperial military ships, but that's just the specific ship, while normal freighters of that class are nothing like the Wild Karrde.
