The Rebel Alliance recovered, repaired, and retrofitted a handful of ARC-170 starfighters during the Galactic Civil War. Though somewhat antiquated, the ship is still a force to be reckoned with, featuring powerful cannons, heavy shielding, and a tail gunner. The ARC-170 Expansion Pack introduces this starfighter to X-Wing as a resilient vessel with two attack, an auxiliary firing arc, and both crew and astromech upgrade slots. Additionally, four ship cards introduce Poe Dameron’s mother Shara Bey and three other aces, while nine new upgrades permit a wide range of creative configurations.
Harri says: The other small-based ship that has access to a rear firing arc, the ARC-170 is the latest ship to come with no generic pilots. It also has yet another unique pairing of upgrades with the Astromech and Crew slots both being available to this ship. The title once again brings this ship up to 3 attack in its primary firing arc, add to this the 9 hits this ship has and it will be around long enough to put some serious damage into the enemy. The Pilot Skill 7 pilot, Norra Wexley, can also add a focus result to you attack at the cost of a target lock, so expect to see this ship put out a lot of hurt before it goes.
Please Note this is pre-order and is expected September 2016
