A-Wings are sorta "worthless" without the Aces box IMO. "Charradan(?) Refit" and "A-Wing Test Pilot" are amazing cards - see tycho with PTL and DD (aka a character who doesn't care about stress tokens).
Initially it appears that they were designed to be a missile platform, and they are just not suited for it, compared to the Z-95 - which usually means that they get left out.
They are a fun ship to play with, I usually run one (My list usually forms a "Nintendo" aka 1 A,B,X,Y). They are VERY hard to get it to work "great". My best list to run them was The Outrider and 2 dirt cheap a wing, and a cheap z-95 (with a missile I think), the As can keep up with the outrider pretty easily due to their fast speeds. Usually they like speeds 3-5, which easily outpaces the rest of the rebel fleet.
