It's not so much about the shooting (although with a Mangler getting crits in before they attack is sweet) and more about knowing where to barrel roll to! But then I haven't played the Rebel big ships much, they're a bit too... popular... for me to really want to use them.

That loadout is maneuverable, it's true, but then you're spending 35pts on a ship that averages a single hit per unmodified attack, which isn't enough to damage a TIE fighter. 5pts more buys you a very decent Echo, which throws double the red dice, has more green dice, and is even more maneuverable than Juno with a FCS for free target locks. I think the best use of the x1 is going to be generics with Acc Corrector to be "like an X-Wing, but Imperial". ;)

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.
