TIE interceptors have always been my favorite among the TIE varieties (closely followed by TIE bombers, but it is possible). If you’re like me, you’ll be excited about the upcoming Skystrike Academy Squadron Pack for X-Wing. In this preview, we get a look at the Imperial Aces that go into this set.
From the preview:
The Galactic Empire is a regime backed by cruelty and ruthless disregard for life, including the lives of its own pilots. At training centers like Skystrike Academy, Imperial cadets learn to put the mission above the lives of their fellow soldiers. In such a ruthless environment, traitors thrive – those who are willing to prioritize their own survival while extolling the virtue of the sacrifices of others.
The Skystrike Academy Squadron Pack brings imperial brutality to the table by Star Wars ™: X-Wing, including a pair of fast TIE / in interceptors and a devastating TIE / d Defender. It also adds iconic perks like Vult Skerris, Commander Gorran, and Ciena Ree to your hangar, as well as powerful Imperial faction upgrades like Disciplined and Skystrike Academy Class. Whether it’s the start of your X-Wing collection or a new wave of recruits for your Imperial forces, the Skystrike Academy Squadron Pack gives you access to the tools to win through the time-tested Imperial Attrition Strategy.
