Outer Rim Smuggler
At 27 points, if you've got your heart set on including the iconic YT-1300 in your squad, then simply skip this option. For an extra 11 points look at the Resistance Sympathizer.
You receive an extra shield (shield upgrade is 4 points alone) 2 hull (they are 3 point upgrades) an increase of pilot skill (1 point) and a missile upgrade slot. The biggest change is going from 2-attack dice, to a third.
If you wanted something large based and forgiving however maybe for a beginner to try, then put Chopper and Zeb on it and just aim it at the enemy.
