Imperial Fighter Squadrons II Expansion Pack
Meanwhile, the Empire's response to the continued spread of rebellion is the development of wildly advanced new fighters and the tactics their squadrons permit.
The Imperial Fighter Squadrons II Expansion Pack introduces eight new squadrons, two each of four different types – the highly Strategic Lambda-class Shuttle, the punishing VT-49 Decimator and TIE Defender Squadron, and the elusive TIE Phantom Squadron. Each of these new types of squadrons comes, in turn, with two cards, one unique and one non-unique.
What will you find among these squadrons? New stat lines and abilities that allow you to better tailor your fleet and squadrons to your overall strategy.
The Lambda-class Shuttle comes with the Relay ability, allowing it to communicate your squadron commands to fighters outside of your ship's command range, but within distance 1–3 of the shuttle. With its Rogue keyword, its eight hull, and a battery armament of three blue dice, the VT-49 Decimator is effectively a tiny capital ship that you can use to harass larger foes, and the TIE Phantom Squadron can Cloak in battle, moving up to distance 1, even if it is currently engaged.
