In the fifth wave of X-Wing expansions, the Rebellion gains access to a new large-base starship, the YT-2400. This fast and resilient light freighter comes with thirteen standard weapon emplacement points, making it an extremely customizable vessel, and an attractive option for smugglers, mercenaries, and others looking to fly a heavily armed “transport.”
In our earlier previews of the YT-2400 Freighter Expansion Pack, we’ve looked at two of its upgrades, Stay on Target and Dash Rendar. Designed by the 2013 and 2012 World Champions, respectively, these upgrades grant your starships greater freedom to race across the battlefield and unleash fire upon enemy ships from advantageous positions.
In addition to these upgrades and the Dash Rendar ship card, which also permits novel movement in the Activation phase, the YT-2400 comes with the barrel roll action, making it the first large ship able to perform this action without an upgrade. Accordingly, in today’s preview, as we take a closer look at this versatile and resilient light freighter, we will focus on what its manoeuvrability may soon add to your games of X-Wing.
