That is a lot of eggs in one basket. There is a very good chance that Ibtisam will get to use only one of those secondary weapons before she disappears in a massive fireball, so you're probably better off shaving some of those upgrades for another ship.

That B-Wing will get focused down so horribly fast it isn't funny.  Basically they just have to destroy that one whip which given your other offensive firepower and it's lack of agility isn't hard.  Then the game is pretty much over.

My favorite Ibti setup is:

 

Ibtisam + Advanced Sensors + Engine Upgrade (35)

 

Throw a cannon on her if you wish or a Expert Upgrade, but that's the core of it. Sure, no cool secondary weapons, but she becomes hyper mobile, able to put herself almost anywhere nearby.

1st: Lose the missiles. You have a Laser-slot if you ever need a secondary weapon. Considering the B-Wing is an incredible knife-fighter with an easy time at staying at Range 1, you don't really need a damage increase.

2nd: Drop VI in favor of an ability that gives her stress, to activate her ability on command.

3rd: Advanced Sensors is astonishing on a B-Wing, particularly when paired with an Engine Upgrade

4th: Consider swapping the A-Wings out for a different ship.

I don't like it.  With 5-8 TIE in opposition, I would focus fire on the Bwing, take it out right away and mop up the little Awings with their poor firepower.  All you ability lays on 1 ship, big target.

I'm glad I started advertising the hypermobile B-Wing a while back. I'm also glad that you like my build, considering how many of yours I think are insane :D

What would you recommend loosing/picking up?

It's a personal choice, but I'd probably take off all of them. Advanced Sensors and Heavy Laser Cannon are, independently, the two most ubiquitous upgrades on B-Wings, and I don't think you need to look much further than them to make one effective. For Ibtisam herself, you could also go with Push the Limit or Opportunist.

How about dropping the both the torps on Ibtisam, and dropping the vet. then changing to advanced sensors. and adding shield upgrades to the a-wings?

Reminds me a lot of Han Shoots First but without the Falcon.  Ibtisam may be several points cheaper than your typical HSF Falcon but you aren't as durable, have to line up your shot without the benefit of the 360 arc, and you don't get the rerolls that HSF is notorious for especially if a Gunner is involved.

I ran this earlier today:

 

Horton + Proton x2

Ibit + PTL + Advanced sensors + Advanced Proton

Dagger Squad + Advanced Sensors

 

Pretty nasty alpha strike, Horton is a tank and his own reroll applies to his primary too.  Beat a 6 tie swarm with it... It was down to Horton with all hull vs. Dark Curse with 1hp left.

This list works very well together. There is no one obvious target. It hits hard and is highly adaptable to other squads it might face.
