Lt. Tentrala allows his squadron to be activated in place of a ship, adding to total activations. His ability requires that he spend, (flip to red if green, or remove if red, a defense token.) I know all the keywords are a bit much, but it reflects the Skipray as depicted. If I were to change anything, without som playtesting, it would be to add an additional keyword. Independent: This unit cannot be activated with a squadron command.or: This unit counts as 2 squadrons, for purposes of Squadron activation.

Honestly, I'm not entirely sure how I feel about all those keywords. Heavy makes total sense, as does Grit and Bomber. I think Rogue is a bit overkill, even though I understand the rationale (I think).On the flip side, LT Tentrala doesn't have enough to set it apart. Their special ability reduces the defense token count to be the same as a generic GAT-12. I would say remove Rogue on this guy and remove Grit on LT Tentrala - thus giving them so difference and making the sacrifice of the defense token worthwhile, because of Rogue, compared to the generic GAT-12.I hope this makes sense, it is quarter after midnight, my time.

I went back to the original role these played for the Empire, before being deemed not TIE shaped enough. I completely guessed on the points. I look forward to what you come up with.

Don't worry, I didn't actually edit anything (despite what it says) - all I did was reset the publish date so that it would show up in the 'recently created' list.

This is a concept I would like to further develop Cynan.
