While taking a transport into a dogfight might seem like taking a conversion van into a NASCAR race, there are definitely upsides to doing so. Namely, all the upgrades and crew you can generally put on them. In this case, we get a look at the Resistance Transport for X-Wing. It's versatile, because if you want to ditch the bottom 3/4 of the ship, you can do so and just fly around in the cockpit.
From the preview:
The Empire may be gone, but those who vigilantly defend the Star Wars galaxy from tyranny still find themselves in much the same position as the Rebels who came before them. Lacking critical supplies and the support of the New Republic, the Resistance must use its own means to procure the vehicles and equipment it needs to continue the fight against the First Order.
Many times, ingenious Resistance engineers take matters into their own hands, cobbling together completely new starships from parts borrowed from a variety of sources. The foremost example of their work is the Resistance Transport, a custom-built shuttle designed to ferry troops and important personnel across the stars. Not only can this ship act as both a transport and a gunship, the cockpit can be flown as an independent ship in its own combat operations.
Whether you’re carrying high-ranking Resistance officers or using it as a command shuttle, you’ll soon be able to add one of these versatile transports to your squadrons with the Resistance Transport Expansion Packfor X-Wing™. Within this expansion, you’ll find a beautifully painted Resistance Transport miniature with detachable Resistance Transport Pod that can also be added to your squadrons. Accompanying these miniatures is everything you need to fly them into battle, including 8 ship cards—4 for the Resistance Transport and 4 for the Resistance Transport Pod—as well as 16 upgrade cards featuring some of the most prominent members of the Resistance.
