X-Wing: Rise of the Assist February 27, 2018

Maybe this article should be named “Revenge of the Assist”.

In all fairness Rebels in particular have a strong need for ships that done necessarily provide combat prowess, but provide mods to other ships in your fleet.

More and more we are seeing the Sheathipede-class shuttle or the Auzituck Gunship being included in lists, not necessarily because they can provide good fire power (the Sheathipede is below average for fire power, while the Auzituck can definitely deliver a pounding to an unwary opponent), but because they provide excellent defensive or offensive bonuses to other ships taken.

Lets talk the Sheathipede (aka Phantom II), the co-ordinate action allows players to get another action off on already moved ships or ships that havent moved yet. This is pretty solid, especially on Ezra and Fenn. In fact, Fenn is arguably one of the best support ships in the game due to his special ability.

As for the Auzituck, it mostly sees flight with Lowhhrick due to his pilot ability to use his re-inforce token for another friendly vessel to give said vessel one evade result.

A lot of builds are using these ships to become more action efficient or more effective in combat.
