Today at the GAMA trade show in Las Vegas, FFG showed a quick preview of the incoming GR-75 and Gozanti models for Armada. No real details were given, but they are supposed to be available this summer.
The first thing that stands out is that these come 2 ships to a stand. That actually makes a ton of sense to me. Individually, they would be weak and therefore cheap. In order to prevent people from simply spamming them for activations, the 2 to a base allows them to be a more appropriate cost. I would be surprised if they cost much less than CR-90b.
What will they do? Maybe they will come with new objectives. That would be fun. Otherwise, they could provide cheap squadron commands like they do in X-Wing. I am sure we will see a preview article soon.
Who has a guess on what these might do in the game?
And now we have the real preview article.
The fleet support sounds interesting and the flotilla rule is a great way to keep a ramming swarm from being a problem. They are still ships though and will work with Admiral abilities.
