Will the Kwing possibly replace the Bwing?

As far as toughness is concerned the Kwing has one up'ed his predecessor with two additional HP, tho trades a shield for it.

As well as has traded a point of firepower for a turret, tho 2 can be fairly low damage. So this is pretty close.

Kwing doesn't have any red maneuvers, however it also kinda of lack maneuvers and sadly no Kturn.

Finally at one point more expensive, KKKKZ is impossible. However something like KKKK with Adv Slam or KKK with 31 point Elite. Perhaps Wedge and the KKK?

K wings don't have a heavy enough damage output to be an all in one list without proper kitting out. They lack the raw 'gun on a brick' effeciency of b-wings.

Of course, when the job really needs to be done they call in us "scum" to do their dirty work.

While true, they do have the steady output. It's not difficult to get around a Bwing or two. Can't arc dodge a turret. That's more or less why you have Wedge join the KKK. Otherwise they don't have enough guns.

I think the term 3K is probably better for international use.

Or maybe Tri-K? Then you can name the list Turning TriKs.
