VT-49 Decimator

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 and others looking to fly a heavily armed “transport.” While several of the galaxy’s more talented pilots, were already able to wrench their large-base starships through barrel rolls thanks to the elite pilot talent, Expert Handling, the YT-2400 makes the action available to all its pilots. Accordingly, the YT-2400 Freighter Expansion Pack introduces the game’s first official rules for using the barrel roll manoeuvre with large-base ships. Its tremendous manoeuverability and its ability to fire a Heavy Laser Cannon in a 360-degree arc can make the YT-2400 a valuable addition to any Rebel squadron.

The VT-49 Decimator is not a subtle starship. It’s the largest of the starships introduced thus far to standard play, and even though it shares the same size base as the YT-2400, it dwarfs that light freighter, towering above it, just as its top-down silhouette nearly swallows every portion of its base. In battle, the Decimator is a blunt weapon.
The warship’s turret weapon allows it to fire at any enemy that gets within range, but its design abandons agility entirely, relying instead upon the strength of its shields and heavily reinforced hull to withstand enemy fire. Even its actions are entirely attack-oriented. It with the focus and target lock actions, but since it has no agility dice to roll on defense, its focus tokens will normally offer rerolls only on your attacks. While the fact that the starship employs a turret weapon means that its pilots can fly past enemy fighters and fire at them from outside their arcs, the Decimator is not a nimble ship. Its maneuver dial consists mostly of straight manoeuvres and banks. It can perform hard turns only at “2” and “3” speeds, and it has no Koiogran-turn whatsoever.
