Hi all

Do these count to the launch limit or not?

Good question.
I would say no, as you can either launch a dropship or a fire ship.
Dropships have no limits to them

I'd actually counter that they do count towards the limit, since they're in the same list as fighters and bombers - they're just bought at the same time as Dropships (and are probably dropships packed with explosives).

Probably best to think of them as a special sort of bomber.

I found a respons on FB from a test player. Fire ships dont count to your launch limit

I think if they did, it'd be a bit too damaging to Resistance lists, which require a lot of Launch to cover their Point Defense needs.

And when in the launch step? Bombers? Torpedoes? Fighters? Bulk landers?

During bulklanders stage, as they cant double trust anyway

Can fire ships be countered with point defence? Going to make a difference on the new lighter

I would say that they can be countered by point defence, like the other launch assets. Otherwise the new lighter might be a bit too powerful with what amounts to three attacks that can do three damage each!

They are not only countered with PD, but Fire Ships do not get the ability to combine their attacks against one PD roll as with Bombers (last page of the FAQ). So if you roll on a ship with a Seneca, that ship gets to make separate PD rolls against each Fire Ship.
