Because the XWA mission guide from the CRS Morning Star Tac Ops section says it's doable ("There is no possibly way that the VSD lives if you act fast enough"). However, it appears that it's not possible with an X-wing, the default craft for this mission. Thanks for letting me know. Perhaps the XWA mission guide should be updated to reflect this. I may try it with a B-wing just for fun.
