From the preview:

Gunners, take your stations! The Tantive IV Expansion Pack for X-Wing™ is nearly here!

The Tantive IV arrives at retailers next week, along with its new upgrades and a series of linked missions that highlight its tremendous combat potential. In addition to those new missions, the Tantive IV is also designed for use in the game’s two Epic Play formats, both of which are outlined in the official X-Wing Epic Play tournament rules (pdf, 2.6 MB), hosted on the game’s support page.

Earlier in the month, developers Frank Brooks and Alex Davy presented four squad lists, two Rebel and two Imperial, that gave us our first hint of the Tantive’s role in the battles of the Team Epic format. Today, we look at how the CR90 can dominate the game’s Epic Dogfight format, and Alex Davy presents a versatile, resilient, and hard-hitting squad list in which he illustrates how the Corellian CR90 Corvette can help the Rebellion win that format’s large-scale, head-to-head battles.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    This ship is awesome! But I’m a little bothered/concerned that FFG says running over smaller ships is a viable tactic with this ship. That doesn’t quite make sense to me- fighters are fast and agile. How could they not dodge this thing?

    I mean, why bother even putting any guns on this thing? Just charge it straight at your opponent and run over his ships.

    It’s gonna move sluggishly, shouldn’t be hard to dodge around. In the rules when 2 ships “collide” they both have to actively dodge each other. This ship can’t do that. And the dodging fighter would have a lot more distance to move to get out of the way (consider that this thing is something like 1/3rd the size it should be).
