According to Wookiepedia (which can sometimes be proven wrong, I've discovered that to painful effects) this Longprobe carried twice as many Proton torpedoes as a regular y-wing, although these additions changed its anti-squad capablilites. I think you should swap a blue dice for a black dice on the anti-squad, add a blue dice to the anti-ship, and then increase the point cost to 15 maybe?Just some of my own thoughts. I really like t as an idea though and would prfer this over the HWK. Have you made an ace version?

I can bump it up by two from twelve, and go from there.And yes, the Longprobe is indeed a Y-wing variant (has different engine struts and engines).

With intel & Long-Range, I think you may need to bump the points by 1 or 2, but playtesting should take care of that. Have someone use them against you. It is the best way I have found to test my own creations. These were a Y-wing variant right?
