Iggies go pop

Again I’m trying different combinations of the IG-2000 paired ships using the IG-2000 title to share the pilot abilities between the pair of ships. The previous week I had flown three different variants, mainly using IG-88A plus another just to make sure this ability was as pointless as I thought it would be. It proved…

Imperial Raider

Images have been released of the Imperial Raider, the next Huge Ship to join the Epic squadrons.
