You might not think that shuttle craft deserve to be zooming around with the sleek and nimble fighters in a dogfight, but they can pack a surprising punch, and their ability to carry others aboard that might be able to help direct the battle is highly valuable. In this preview for X-Wing, we get a look at the First Order's Xi-class Light Shuttle.
From the article:
The First Order’s agents are scattered across the Star Wars™ galaxy, lying in wait to reclaim the glory of the Empire. Whether they plot against the New Republic from the depths of the Unknown Regions or within the heart of the Core Worlds, the Xi-class Light Shuttle is often a key part of their sinister plans.
Ideal command platforms for clandestine operations and raiding parties alike, Xi-class shuttles enhance the effectiveness of the First Order’s more nimble fighters and allow some of its most devious agents to impose their will on starfighter battles. Soon, you can play out your own schemes with the Xi-class Light Shuttle Expansion Pack for Star Wars™: X-Wing!
This expansion gives you everything you need to add a Xi-class Light Shuttle to your First Order squadrons, beginning with a finely detailed, pre-painted miniature. Meanwhile, four ship cards invite you to dispatch one of the First Order's elite operatives into battle and 14 upgrade cards invite you to fully customize your Xi-class Light Shuttle with new crew members, tech, and more. Finally, two quick build cards give you the chance to use helpful, pre-built combinations of pilots and upgrades.
