Fantasy Flight Games Previews Imperial Light Carrier for Star Wars: Armada

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.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Imperial Light Cruiser For Star Wars Armada

While most of us think of the formidable Imperial-class Star Destroyer when we think of the Imperial armada, there's plenty of smaller craft that would be used, particularly out on the Outer Rim, when sending a whole ISD would be overkill (even in Imperial standards). That's where the Imperial Light Cruiser comes in. Smaller and able to respond more quickly to threats, it still packs a good punch. And soon, you'll be able to add them to your Star Wars Armada fleets.

You're not going to be scratching too many kills into its hull, but it will make sure your other ships are making those shots.
