Following the traditions of the Galactic Empire, the First Order has kept the TIE fighter design in service, but has updated the craft to modern combat standards. The TIE/fo Fighter Expansion Pack allows you to reinforce your X-Wing™ squadron with one of these modern First Order TIEs. In addition to its detailed, pre-painted TIE/fo fighter miniature, you’ll find six ship cards, two new upgrades, a maneuver dial, and all the tokens you need to fly your TIE into battle!
An extremely nimble starfighter, the First Order’s mass-produced TIE/fo offers a unique blend of durability, maneuverability, and advanced tech that its best pilots quickly learn to use to their advantage in combat.
You’ll find one of these ships available in the TIE/fo Fighter Expansion Pack as a carefully detailed and pre-painted miniature, along with six ship cards and two upgrades that allow your First Order pilots to employ cunning new tactics in battle.
Two of the expansion’s three unique aces feature the elite pilot talent slot, and that means they can equip the new Juke upgrade. For two squad points, this elite pilot talent enters X-Wing as one of a very limited number of cards that allow the attacker to modify the defender’s dice results.
The drawback, of course, is that you have to hold an unspent evade token, and the rules state that you clear all of your ships’ evade tokens at the end of each round. Here, the TIE/fo fighter’s new tech upgrade, Comm Relay , offers a solution. For three squad points, this upgrade allows you to store a single evade token that you don’t need to remove at the end of the round. Thus, you can perform an evade action in the game’s first round as you close on your opponent’s Resistance forces, and save it to fuel your Juke.
What’s more, if your pilot fires early enough in combat, you can still use that evade token to save his ship from damage after he takes his shot. Accordingly, you’ll find there are few better at juking their opponents than “Omega Leader,” one of the expansion’s three unique aces, whose pilot skill value of eight ensures he almost always fires near the top of combat.
