I wrote an article discussing what is probably my favorite ship: http://www.wwpd.net/2016/01/star-wars-a ... -cr90.html

Great Write up Steve!

I think it would be stellar if the next ship in the series you were to write up would be the raider. Thus you've got that "compare/contrast" feature between the rebel and imperial small ships.

Hello, I am new to armada and looking at playing in my first tournament in a couple weeks. I was hoping to ask for some advise on my fleet which is CR-90 heavy. My fleet list is as follows: 4 CR-90 A, 4 enhanced armaments, 4 nav team, admiral Akbar, and 8 YT-2400. I liked what I read in your article about the turbo laser reroute but don't know what I would do with the 12 points it would free up. Also I have seen very little use of my nav team and am open to suggestions of what else I could use.

One thought is to drop 2 YT-2400s, replace all your EA w/ TRC and drop the nav teams to add a 5th Corvette.

The Nav team is alright and all, but you're already one of the most maneuverable ships in the game. The extra click is certainly decent enough, but how many uses will it see per game? Once per ship, if that in my estimation.

Would there be any upgrades you would recommend instead, having 8 squads has proven really useful because the play group includes 1 other rebel, and 5 imperial players: who all Rymer ball, Or gladiator with concussion missiles.

Drop the Nav Teams, drop the EA, add the TRCs... that leaves you a net of 20 points I think?

Add some titles I reckon. Antilles + Tantive IV is 10. Jaina's is 2. Maybe add an ECM or Adv Proj on your flagship to make it a bit more survivable?

Thank you for all your help I went 2-1 in my first tournament, and the extra ship made a huge difference for me.
