Zertik Strom: 26 points, PS 6, EPT (v1.0 W12)

Enemy ships at Range 1 cannot add their range combat bonus when attacking.

FFG reached way back to the original Marvel Star Wars comic book for Zertik Strom. His first appearance was issue #18, cover dated December of '78. I imagine his X-Wing appearance is nearly as forgotten.

1st Stage of Grief - Rank C

(27) Zertik Strom: Veteran Instincts, Sensor Jammer, TIE/x1
(34) Carnor Jax: Push the Limit, Autothrusters, Hull Upgrade, Royal Guard TIE
(39) Captain Kagi: Sensor Jammer, Emperor Palpatine

This one's a Sable Gryphon joint. Mark designed this squad as an exercise of attenuation: Zertik knife fights, and denies Range 1 combat bonuses (notice that this ability affects attacks on targets other than himself). Jax denies foci expenditure, which makes the Sensor Jammers all the more frustrating. Kagi pulls target locks onto himself, which is grin-inducing in the contemporary Long-Range Scanner riddled meta. And as always, it's a plus to have everyone moving and firing at the same pilot skill.

The offense is too weak for more than casual play today, but the squad's interactions do provide an enjoyably challenging flying experience.
