A heavy fighter used by the Republic, the ARC-170 had a lot going on. Both forward and rear-facing acs of fire, potential to carry some heavy munitions, and a whole army of clone pilots to take them into battle. In this preview for X-Wing, we get a look at what they'll be like out on the battlefield.
From the post:
The threat posed by the Separatist Alliance is growing, threatening the entire Star Wars galaxy. With the Jedi and their Delta-7 Aethersprite starfighters spread thin, brave clone pilots fill in the gaps, serving as the last line of defense against Separatist assaults. While many fly into battle in the V-19 Torrent, others prefer a heavier option.
Designed as a dominating heavy escort fighter, the ARC-170 starfighter features powerful front and rear lasers, heavy ordnance, and an astromech for navigation. Squadrons of these mighty ships bolster the Republic Navy’s presence at any battle, and soon you can bring your own complement of ARC-170s to the battles of X-Wing™ with the ARC-170 Starfighter Expansion Pack.
This expansion contains everything you need to add the Republic’s mainstay heavy starfighter to your squadrons, including one beautifully painted ARC-170 starfighter miniature and six clone pilots ready to fly into any battle. In addition to the unique abilities that these pilots bring to your squadrons, fourteen upgrade cards invite you to customize your ARC-170 with additional crew, astromech droids, gunners and more. Join us today as we take a look at everything contained in the ARC-170 Starfighter Expansion Pack!
