Gopher Tournament tomorrow... Now with extra Defenders!

So, looking at running a tournament at the Gopher tomorrow…  Should be a fun one, nothing high pressure….  New FAQ hit today, and goes into effect as of a few days ago…  AND Imperial Veterans are here!  So, I have my Red Defender to fly with my Blue one…

Looks like I’ll fly this:

Been practicing with the Countess for a bit now, and that is a fun ship to fly…  I am finding the Defender a LOT more my speed than the Interceptor or even the Phantom…  The Phantom IS a lot of fun to fly, but it is really fragile.  Hits like a hammer, but it is not that hard to take off the table with modern stuff.  If you catch it without cloak, it only has 2 Agility…  But the Defender has 3 all the time and with the x7 title?  Almost always has an Evade token…  And Juke pairs REALLY well here for a bit of extra Offence…   I tried the /D with an Ion Cannon, but…  Well, flying against Large based ships, not nearly so useful, and the x7 seems to be the way I’ll go…
