I used this list on Saturday to great effect.

Horton Salm; R2-D2; Ion Turret; Proton Torpedoes (38 points)
Dagger Squadron Pilot; Ion Cannon; Hull Upgrade (30 points)
Blue Squadron Pilot; Heavy Laser Cannon; Hull Upgrade (32 points)

Initial engagement should see at least one or two ion markers hit enemy ships. Continue to grief with Salm from range 2. Fly formations with the B-Wings doing ion damage with the Dagger and damage with the Blue.

Ah, doctor, that aneasthetic is perfect!

Nice list! The ion damage looks the main part of your squad, but what do you do with the proton torpedoes? Is it for an alpha strike, or...?

I think with such a squad you can do without the protons and have the points for something else? Another hull or even shield upgrade? Or...

There is no reason to have two A's at the beginning of aardvark. I simply won't do it.

Interesting build. Just beware of squads that have all large ships.

Replace Proton Torpedo with Engine Upgrade? I love Engine Upgrades on my Y Wings. It plays well with R2, too, since you can green move and then make up the lost ground to keep the Ion harass up.

Just a thought.

If you drop the torpedo, the blue can be bumped to a Dagger, and both hull upgrades can be upgraded to shield upgrades. Just a thought.

Yeah not sure about horton and the torp. I'd be inclined to go with dutch, drop the torp.

It was for an alpha strike, but I think you're right. I've played this list twice more and played against it. It won twice against experienced opponents, once against me when played by an experienced opponent, and lost when my wife used it against me.

The torps could go. I'm also tempted to trade in the HLC for ion and save the points.
