At first the stats of the ship don't look that impressive however there is an option (12 points mind you) to take the ships primary weapon to 3. I guess this puts it around the typical point range for a large based ship that can fire 360 degrees.
The dial is certainly another interesting consideration, with the 1 and 2 left manoeuvres granting the ship green moves the opposite are white because of the cockpit positioning and those mega g-forces that poor old Dengar cops. Interesting concept however and it will be be extremely engaging to see what sort of impact this has on the ship during battle. The white segnors loop however is nearly enough to tip all of the disadvantages of this dial away however.
Either way check out the full article here as there are some images of other pilots which some interesting abilities and as per usual it's a great time to be starting X-wing!
