Just got my VT-49 and was playing around with lists when I thought of an interesting one. Put simply this list is all about pure health. Big Armor with Big Guns, nothing really on the fancy tricks side of things. Let me know what you think of:

Captain Oicunn + Dauntless + Intimidation
Bounty Hunter
Omicron

Strategy here being Oicunn charges in and tries to ram/intimidate whatever he can get close to. The Omicron follows and tries to shoot at intimidated targets. Finally the bounty hunter is the flanker/anti-flanker who tries to also shoot at intimidated targets if the opportunity presents itself.

The real key to this list is the 36 hit points that it has, along with three ships shooting 3's. The downsides that I can see right away, all have to do with poor maneuverability, and landing on asteroids is going to REALLY hurt.

Probably not much good for competitive play, but this is the list
I wanted to field, at least once..

The trick here is you minimize your poor manouver options by
forcing your opponent into a stress-loaded Ion crawl

Oicunn
Intimidation
Mara Jade


Omicron Group shuttle
Ion Cannon
Tactician

Omicron Group shuttle
Ion Cannon
Tactician


A pair of Ion cannons will allow you to line up your ramming runs, with
Mara Jade preventing your opponent from getting behind you with a K-turn

Then you prevent them from running too far while the Decimator turns
around for another pass, shuttles using the stall action if necessary.


Because who doesn't like Ion + Double stress after the initial pass?
(Besides your opponent!)

With three low/no agility ships, you want to be throwing out hits and crits as fast as possible. This should do it. Let the Shuttles tank and strip shields, VT flies in turn after and puts an unblockable crit on any ship within 360 Range 3.
