There is no reason to have two A's at the beginning of aardvark. I simply won't do it.
If the defenders are cheap enough, we might be able to run 2x defender + ion cannon and 2x omicron shuttle with APL. The defenders revealed white K-turn is enough to pretty much have them pointing wherever you want - the biggest issue will be the lack of a 360 arc on the shuttles, but they can park, and they have stronger guns and more HP than an ORS..I would never put the anti-pursuit lasers on a shuttle. Their movement is so awful that you will get 1 good run and spend the next 4 rounds getting back into position. I prefer to keep these guys at the edge of battle so they have time to move with it once the furball breaks up. Giving them APL just encourages them to be in the mix. Mistake in my opinion.
