Fire ships

Post by Drcox » Sat Sep 14, 2019 10:36 pm

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?
