Just me, but I would trade an SF for Scorch, use the remaining points to put Fanatical on Blackout. I'd then run Scorch separate from the other tie block to force my opponent to commit to one or the other. If they turn on Scorch, he will most likely die, but not before doing some damage and putting your opponent out of position. This same strategy won't work with an SF, since a lone SF is largely ignorable for the first few rounds, but Scorch poses a significant threat.

If you do keep the list as is, spread out your SFs. They will lose any straight joust, so force your opponent to commit to one Tie who can then turn away and use the butt arc.

If the sfs With optics aren’t ideal in hyperspace, how about something like this:

(57) Major Vonreg [TIE/ba Interceptor]
Points: 57

(76) Kylo Ren [TIE/vn Silencer]
(3) Brilliant Evasion
Points: 79

(33) "Scorch" [TIE/fo Fighter]
(2) Fanatical
Points: 35

(27) Lieutenant Rivas [TIE/fo Fighter]
Points: 27

Total points: 198

Might have a hard time pushing damage through against jedis/5A/focho/boba fenn/4 fangs

Against Boba, yes.

But keep in mind that you can mitigate Fearless and Concordia with the rear arc of an SF. :)

The only suggestion I'd make is possibly swapping in Von Reg and Scorch for Blackout and the Epsilon, respectively. 

It's a similar flight strategy, though.

SFs with optics are still very good in hyperspace. For me, I think the main issue with the prior squad is that Ace + Mini swarm is tough to fit into the First Order, especially with a Silencer. Another option would be to drop Blackout down to Holo, at which point you can upgrade the Epsilon to a 4th Optics SF.

I've toyed a bit myself with Kylo, Vonreg, and 2 ties, though I haven't put it in the table yet. Be careful with Vonreg; he can be surprisingly predictable and can't dodge arcs as well as Kylo. If  I were your opponent, he would probably be my first target, unless Scorch/Rivas made themselves obviously vulnerable
