If there’s one thing that the space battles in Star Wars taught us, it’s never underestimate the power of a fighter squadron. X-Wings and a light cruiser take out the Death Stars. An A-Wing crashing takes out the Executor. Squadrons of fighters can really swing a battle in your favor. And getting those fighters to the front are various larger ships, such as the Imperial Light Carrier, coming soon to Star Wars: Armada.
From the preview:
Imperial fighters will soon flood the vastness of space, carried into battle by the Quasar Fire-class cruiser-carrier…
The Imperial heart of the sixth wave of expansions for Star Wars™: Armada, the Quasar Fire-class cruiser-carrier promises to add new punch to the Empire’s squadrons when it arrives with the Imperial Light Carrier Expansion Pack. TIE fighters, TIE bombers, TIE interceptors, TIE Advanced—they’re all about to get a major boost, and you’ll find more Imperials across the galaxy looking at the Rogue bounty hunter squadrons and quietly shaking their heads, muttering, “We don’t need that scum.”
Why might this be the case? It’s because the Imperial Light Carrier excels at providing your Imperial fighters the kind of support they need. Not only does it tout a commanding squadron value of “4,” but it is also accompanied by a wealth of upgrades, including three new Titles that add speed, resilience, or versatility to your fighters—whichever best suits your fleet.
