X-Wing: TIE Punisher

Fear not, Star Wars X-wing fans, you have not been forgotten by Fantasy Flight, and Armada is not their favourite child. To prove their undying love for you and to make sure baby has not been put in the corner. A preview of the TIE Punisher x-wing expansion pack.

TIE Punisher

No massive surprise that the TIE – Punisher has been designed to be a heavy bomber, that being said if you thought the TIE bomber was deadly? Well, the Punisher delivers up to 4X the artillery, with the addition of advanced weapons and shields. Meaning you don’t have to compromise, when it comes to accuracy and resiliency.

You have seen the mini and read the blurb, now let’s take a quick look at the upgrades of the TIE – Punisher.

Two torpedo slots, two missile slots, and two bomb slots. As previously mentioned, the resiliency of the Punisher is nothing to sniff at with 3 shields and a Hull value of 6.

If you are looking for an array of fire power in your squad, the Punisher seems to be the best in the game thus far.

You can give your punisher an additional edge by taking advantage of the systems upgrade slot. If your artillery is Mine heavy (Proximity/Cluster), then consider equipping Advanced Sensors.

If you aren’t as misfortunate as I am, and accidently blowing yourself up isn’t a concern for you, then you might want to check out the Enhanced Scopes, upgrade.

Not satisfied? Well here is the full lot for you.

I don’t know about you, but the TIE – Punisher is one ship that will be going on my Imperial squad list, indefinitely.
