Another vehicle that I like to use is the rebel's A-wing. I go underneath the enemies' capital ship and fly around down there. When I see an enemy fighter, I lock on to it and shoot it down. It generally takes only one shot of missiles. This is a very effective strategy, and if you can use it properly, it makes the A-wing a very powerful vehicle in space.
