The U-Wing & TIE Striker Swoop Into FFG’s X-Wing

September 7, 2016 by brennon

Two new ships are joining the fleet of options now available to you in Fantasy Flight Games’ X-Wing. We’re starting with the U-Wing featured as part of Rogue One, the new film coming at the end of this year.

U Wing

“In the U-wing Expansion Pack, X-Wing fans will find not only a new large-base Rebel ship, but a whole collection of remarkable pilots and crew members that evoke the Rebel spirit.

Four ship cards and fourteen upgrades introduce versions of Jyn Erso , Cassian Andor , plus several other notable characters from Rogue One.”

The ship design here is very cool indeed. I like the big engines and the positioning of the wings. It has a familiar ‘human’ look to it but with a bit of an alien twist to make it stand out on the tabletop.

As well as the Rebel ship the TIE Striker is also coming soon.

TIE Striker

“Although it can function in space, the TIE striker was designed primarily for use in atmosphere and features a sleek profile with an extended cockpit and advanced high-speed wings.”

Another great looking TIE ship and also great for those of us who enjoy our atmospheric dogfighting! Maybe the makers of Rogue One enjoyed our Battle On Endor so much that they wanted to continue showing off what these ships could do.

More Ships!

Additionally there are more ships on the way too.

Rogue One Ships

Here we have, from left to right, the Quadjumper, Sabine’s TIE fighter, U-wing, TIE striker, and the Upsilon-class shuttle. All very awesome looking and it will be fun to see how they play on the tabletop when they get released.

What do you think of these new ships?
