Basic Plan & Formation - Knowing that I plan to use Gallant Haven really sets this up. I will want an Assault Frigate and a good number of squadrons to swarm around it. Assault frigates lend themselves to firing some broadsides, so I may form a small battle line behind Gallant Haven. The range limitation of the title will mean that I will want to aggressively close with my opponent.
Core Ships - Well obviously, I will have an Assault Frigate Mk IIb as part of my fleet. I am thinking that I will back it up with an MC-80 Command Cruiser. It can act as an alternate carrier and also support the Gallant Haven with some Projector Experts.
Admiral - With an Assault Frigate and an MC-80 as the core of my fleet, Ackbar makes a lot of sense. Some tokens from Garm could also be helpful and save some points. Let's try it with Garm and switch it up if I decide that what I need is more firepower.
Support Ships - I know that I will want at least one more ship for activation purposes. I could bring a cheap CR-90, but they don't get much out of Garm. So, lets go with Neb-B.
Upgrades - Well, Gallant Haven is obvious and I think Adar Tallon could be a big boon on the Haven. I can give the Neb-B the Yavaris title for maximum squadron shenanigans. Projection Experts on the MC-80 will help the rest of the fleet out and I am going to give Defiance a try as I haven't used it yet.
Squadrons - Jan Ors + the Gallant Haven effect is awesome, so she needs to be in the fleet. I think some X-wings to escort her seems good. I haven't played with my Scurrg yet, so I will add that in as well. Dutch can come along as well to help shut down Rogues.
Objectives - Advanced Gunnery is an automatic choice with the MC-80. Superior Positions works great with my squadron compliment. For yellow, I think I will go with Contested Outpost and dare my opponent to come towards my squadrons.
Here's what I end up with:
Assault Frigate Mk IIb
- Gallant Haven
- Adar Tallon
- Garm Bel Iblis
- Projection Experts
Looks like fun. I will give it a try tonight and post a battle report tomorrow.
