Fantasy Flight Games gives us another look inside the Scum and Villainy faction for X-Wing with a preview of the M3-A Interceptor. Not exactly the most iconic ship in the Star Wars universe (in fact, I can’t say I remember hearing about it, but it’s been a long time since I read any of the extended universe stuff), the M3-A is sort of a middle point between the big, heavy hitter of an X-Wing and a light, nimble TIE-Fighter. There is a “heavy” version you can create as well with the expansion cards in order to sort of fit into the Y-Wing role as well.
From the post:
Thus, as we continue to explore what the Scum and Villainy faction will soon bring to X-Wing and its explosive space battles, we turn our attention toward another starfighter with much lower production costs, the M3-A “Scyk” interceptor. Like the StarViper-class attack platform, the Scyk was produced by MandalMotors, but it was the product of a very different design philosophy.
