Please could some more experienced players assist me?

1) Red maneuvers prevent enemy pilots from taking actions but they are still able to make any move them wish, flying circles around my less agile ships. Is it not imbalanced that the AI can make repeated K & S-turns for days, turn after turn?

2) How come some ships allow the AI to make an initial target lock action and then in the same turn an evade, focus or barrel roll? Is this not over powered and imbalanced.

3) Different pilots offer unique action abilities. So when using enemy AI, do you ignore pilot cards. If so, where do you get the enemy's pilot skill.

4) Can you equip AI ships with upgrade cards?

Thank you

Yes, this is an intentional advantage given to the HOTAC AI that both makes it stronger and simplifies its operation.

They use the Imperial Pilot cards for both. Anything other than basic TIE Fighters require you to draw one of these to determine what it is equipped with. If there are multiple ships of the same type in a squadron, they will all use the same card and therefore be the same PS/have the same upgrades.
