Red Squadron Veteran
For a 2 point increase over the Blue Squadron Novice you gain pilot skill 4 but also access to an EPT which makes these T-70 X-Wings great.
Pattern Analyzer is a great tech upgrade provided you have the points to keep the X-wing in the fight. Allowing you to perform a red manoeuvre, perform an action, and then take a stress token meaning a K-turn/Talon Roll and a boost could you back into a solid attacking position.
Keeping them cheap is key however, but luckily with the amount of Waves in X-wing there is a mass amount of options available.
