Part of Green Knight's Infinities, my "What if" Vassal SW: Armada extension.CHANGESI wanted to love the YV, but couldn't quite. The Heavy keyword was a limitation, but mixing it with some non-Heavy squads fixed that. Speed was another issue, solvable using FCT. But then it has a single blue non-bomber vs ships AND a high cost to boot, turning the final verdict into a "nay" - or best case "niche".Speed: Increased by 1 to 3. Because speed 2 is lame.[bAnti-ship:[/b] Swap blue for black. No reason for it to be less of a threat to ships than the YT-2400, for example.Cost: Unchanged at 15 pts. It's comparable to a 16 pt defender, but is much slower, lacks bomber, and has heavy. The YV has a hefty 7 hp though, and rogue.Infinities YV is the same as the old one, except with greater speed and the ability to reliably do damage vs ships. It still hits like a truck vs squads, and with those two boosts it should be a really appealing pick, despite the Heavy keyword.Version: 2.2
