Not really a rougue squadron thing, but is related to star wars
What ship what win this fight?
1 Y-wing Vs. 8 capital ships, including 2 Blockade Runners(Correlion Corvettes), a Victory Star Destroy and a Imperial Star Destroyer both loaded with a unlimeted amount of conccusion missiles?

The Master 06-20-2001 04:48 PM

The Y-Wing of coarse! Just think. It is flying through a big cloud of these big ships that are spraying lazer and torps at the Y-Wing. They are going to end up doing alot more damage to themselves then the Y-Wing. That was an easy one, silly.

Pardon me for interrupting, but I do believe than an Ewok Glider armed with a payload of rocks could do far more damage than a Y-Wing. The superior design and incredible maneuverability of this craft will prevail over any rebel-engineered hunk-o-junk.

Just my 2c.

The hang glider would't be able to enter space!

Rogue9 06-22-2001 06:59 PM

and the only one I ever saw was shot down by a normal blaster...

Tie Guy 06-22-2001 10:05 PM

Wow, you've been reading the books. That manuver is known as teh Ackbar Slash, but it doesn't destroy many enemy ships, it is meant to damage them enough for you to make a getaway, not to win the battle. Plus, it isn't meant fort the piece of junk y-wings to do. You need something more manuverable or more heavily armored to pull it off.

I've heard of the A-Wing Slash...

Rogue9 06-29-2001 04:57 AM

A-Wing Slash is different, it involes a Squadron of A-Wings Cruising in at a Target, then as the target scrambles fighters to confront the A-Wings they breakaway allowing the Heavy fighter hidden in there engine wash to fire on the Cap ship from close range unmolested. I don't just read the books, I memorize them. it has been used by them empire utilizing Preybirds instead of A-Wings and Concussion Missles instead of X-Wings. the Cap ship prepares for a light barage from the fighters and is then slammed by many times there number of missles.

Helix 07-02-2001 05:33 PM

Jesus Christ you guys! Have you ever played X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter? In the Custom dogfight, if you select to do the challenge, first you fight 2 Corellian Corvettes. Then approx. 4 more capital ships will come at 1 at a time, and after you defeat them, a Victory class star destroyer will come, and after you defeat it, a Imperial Star Destroyer will come. If you don't get this, then your dead.

Redwing 07-02-2001 11:30 PM

WOW! Someone here is Jesus Christ? Where? Who? Why?

Hmmmmmm I think u guys are missing the big picture... 1 Y-Wing.... against what 8 capital ships... at least 2 that can carry starfighter support... lets see *takes out his Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels book* .... *reading*... AHAA!! A standard Imperial class Star Destroyer can carry a total of four squadrons of starfighters... so that is... seventy two TIE Fighters, Interceptors, Bombers, Advanced, Defenders, and whatever else you wanna throw in there... Hmmmmmm *reads some more* The Victory can hold a total of 24 TIE's... Hmmmmm so you better make that 8 Capital ships AND 96 fighters... againts... 1... Y-Wing... Hmmmmmm, I'm placing my bets on the 8 Capital ships...

btw... Rogue9... you've read Spectre of the Past too hey...

Four squadrons is 48 fighters. A wing (Six squadrons) has 72 fighters.

For the empire! MY empire.

Lynk Former 07-04-2001 05:11 AM

A squad is 12... a flight is 4... oh wait... did I say 4?... oops no no no I typed in the wrong thing. It's 6 squads... Hmmmm

Grand_Admiral_Ice 07-04-2001 04:43 PM

Yea sure Lynk.

For the empire! MY empire.

Tie Guy 07-05-2001 01:12 AM

A squadron is twelve. A Imperial Star Destroyer holds 6 squdrons. The newer ones hold 3 TIE/ln squads, 2 Intercepter squads, and one bomber squad. However, they also include support ships, namely skipray blastboats and Assault Gunboats, so that ups count, i'd bet on Capitol ships, especially verses a y-wing, that has no chance of escape.

Oh yeah, the A-wing slash has the X-wings first, since the A-wings are smaller and can hide behind the larger ships. Just thought i'd clear that up.

The Spectre to the Past is a great series for anyone looking for a a good read. And Vision of the Future is suprisingly long when you see the thickness and then find out it is over 700 pages long.

Lynk Former 07-05-2001 04:28 AM

Let's just get this over with and agree with one obvious fact... the Y-Wing would be blown into a million pieces before it would even have a chance to fire...


Redwing 07-05-2001 04:47 AM

Helix 07-05-2001 10:37 PM

Your not going to belive this, but I beat 8 capitol ships in X-wing vs. Tie Fighter. All you do is keep your ship about 5.00 Kl. away and arm it with heavy rockets and have a reloading craft standing by. And none of the ships send out any starfighters, all they do is shoot missiles at you that hardly ever hit.

Lynk Former 07-06-2001 09:41 AM

Yeah but that's a game... I know this may sound stupid... but here goes. In 'real life' ... yeah real life... IF all of that existed then the Y-Wing would lose!! Why? Because a simple game like that can't predict what a real commander would do in that situation! I know what I'd do... sending out a flight of TIE Interceptors would take that Y-Wing out real easy. Those squints would fly circles around that bucket of bolts!

The Master 07-06-2001 04:54 PM

I don't want to burst any bubbles, but I have to agree with Lynk in this case.

Helix 07-06-2001 07:24 PM

What would win this time;150 Y-wings loaded with 4 space bombs each with 90 T-65XJ X-Wings for support vs. 2 Corellian Corvettes, 1 Strike Cruiser, 1 Nebulon-B Frigate, 1 Escort Carrier, 1 Dreadnaught, 1 Interdicter Im-418, 1 Victory Star Destroyer and 1 Imperial Star Destroyer, all come at one at a time, except for the Corvettes, which come both at a time?

Redwing 07-07-2001 04:00 AM

The X's and Y's.

Yes, I agree with Lynk on this one as well. Any commander with a brain wouldn't just stand there and let a flying box pound him into oblivion.
