I set up the following :

Team 1 :
1 x Millenium Falcon (Me / Ace 4th)
6 x X-Wing (Rogue / Ace)
6 x A-Wing (Polearm / Ace)

Team 2 :
3 x 6 T/F (1 x Off, 1 x Vet, 1 x Ace)
2 x 6 T/I (Ace)
6 T/A (Vet)
6 Preybird (Vet)

I had a pair of bl**dy Advanced up my exhaust, REALLY keeping with me, and I had another which I whos weapons I was jamming, and I went to turn the quad guns on of the shooters, when I pressed a wrong button (I AM a seasoned XWA player - so that is REALLY not good ! !) and ended up in the cockpit.
I decided to go with it. And WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Play in turret mode, and use 'f' to follow your targets. It is SO .... WOW !
Not only is the enemy ships buzzing all over the place, but so is your own ship in an attempt to follow it !
If you can do well in that mode (Im kinda good so far), THEN I you will REALLY have earnt your rating cuase you have DAMN fine accuracy + timing !
And not only that it, but it evens out having the falcon around to a certain extent !
You SERIOUSLY have to try it out.

Well - I think that it is actually quite tough to use a Corellian Transport, as you are rather a large target, and your shield don't recharge that fast. The turrets aren't really that big of an adavntage unless your only against naffies (term of my design : ships that REALLY should not last as long as they do in combat) such as T/F and T/B.

And just as a point of refernce, I FINALLY re-earnt my Ace 4th class on Sunday evening.
Over 1000 kills (300 assists), approx. 89240 points.
Kills include : an en-mass assault against a Bulwark,
MANY Imperial starships and capitals,
Practically EVERY fighter you care to name,
And 30% of them in a B-Wing !
