He who runs lives to fight another day !
In other words, its at times like these that you DONT wanna dog fight. Okay, Y-wings are not the greatest of fighters, but with full missile payloads, at distance, against a single YT 1300, well - you do the maths.
I did the following :
Set shields to max recharge,
Set lasers to no recharge,
Set shields to full aft,
Leg it !
Let the turrets shootdown any missles, and just leg it. If you get into real trouble, set shields to increased recharge.
This is a simple case of know your enemy :
Y-Wings are slow as hell, so out run them. Dont worry about missiles, go to the turret and remove them. DONT use auto-pilot on the nav-buoy, just aim the ship at it and go.
I hope that helps you.
