So, I got a little creative with squad building earlier today, since I've recently acquired both the HWK and K-Wing.

[HWK-290] Kyle Katarn [6]
· Shield Upgrade
· Blaster Turret
· Recon Specialist
[K-Wing] Esege Tuketu [6]
· Advanced SLAM
· Twin Laser Turret
· Recon Specialist
[Y-Wing] "Dutch" Vander [6]
· Ion Cannon Turret
· R2 Astromech
[100pts]

When I took a closer look at the squad layout, I realized there was a synergy that started with Kyle giving his token to Esege, who would then have tokens available for Dutch.

Also, the pilot skill is somewhat hilarious as well.

With all that said and done, why not give everyone TLTs since they're so popular? Well, why not throw in a couple of curveballs to catch others off guard?

In all seriousness, I'm working with what I have available at the moment, and I don't want to be purchasing multiple K-Wings just to use the turrets and leave the ship completely alone (that and my wallet's screaming bloody murder at me).

While all is said and done, I have not flown this squad yet, so I have no idea if it will even be hardly effective in practice, but I wanted to, at least, poke some fun and creativity into squad building.

I'd get a TLT on Kyle, drop the shield upgrade and try to get the Moldy Crow title in there. Even though I understand the draw of Advanced Slam I'd probably drop it in this build. Doesn't seem nearly as useful since if you SLAM it should be to run away.

Three turrets can be brutal. My friend likes to run "Birds of Prey" which is his version of the three named HWK290s from the rebel faction all with recon specialist, hull upgrades, blaster turrets and moldy crow on Kyle.

Advanced Slam is for action-drop ordnance. Or uh...Saboteur, I guess.

More turrets, please.
