I like:

Black Squadron Scout, Predator, Ailerons, LWF, 25 points.

Sienar Specialist, Ion Cannon Turret, either UGR or LWF, 24 points.

Ion may help buy time for your Gunboats to turn around and reload.

Looking forward: generic TIE Reaper with Ailerons, Systems Officer and TIE MkII - green banks on both Ailerons and dial means you can activate Systems Officer twice.

Reaper get "Advanced" Ailerons, not "Adaptive" and the text shown so far is different than the Adaptive ones for the Striker, so unlikely to work as you suspect. It appears to have something to do like make a red maneuver (like their hard 2) white if you are not stressed.

But the bottom half seems to be verbatim of adaptive ailerons

You know what I completely forgot about, now that it's too late, but have no idea if someone else remembered...?

The goddamn TAP. The Sienar test pilot with Tie/v1 and protons and gchips was a cute little 20 point filler

 

Wait, there are other pilots for the TAP other than the Inquisitor?

I suggested a Baron of the Empire with Title and Juke on page 2.  For my cookie prize, I'll take chocolate chip.  But don't try to fool me with oatmeal raisin!

I went with

Zeta Specialist. Tie S/F.
Special Ops Training. Lightweight Frame
 

It was a small event 10 participants. I got 4-0 and won the tournament. The Zeta Specialist was beefy enough to survive in most games

Told ya to consider the zeta ? now where is my cookie?

TAPs with Prockets have really poor synergy though. On the turn at which they're at range 1, they can't target lock, which means no evade token either.

Bombers with Prockets and LWF are 1 point more, have way better durability and can afford to focus when at R1.
