Fantasy Flight Games Announce Imperial Raider Expansion for Star Wars: X-Wing

Fantasy Flight Games announce the Imperial Raider Expansion Pack for Star Wars: X-Wing.

An advanced patrol vessel developed by the Empire, the Raider-class Corvette is built to strike swiftly and decisively wipe out any resistance. Capable of spewing out salvoes of ordnance or firing focused blasts at any target hapless enough to be caught in its killzone, the Raider is a terrifying opponent on the battlefield.

Within this expansion, you’ll find everything you need to add a Raider-class Corvette to either your Galactic Empire or First Order squadrons, including two ship cards and variety of upgrade cards inviting you to outfit your ship with Commands, Teams, Cargo, and potent Hardpoints. You’ll also find everything you need to fly a Raider-class Corvette or any other huge ship, including a huge ship maneuver tool, a huge ship range ruler, a resource tracker, and a huge ship damage deck.

A Legacy of Fear

Stalking across the stars, the Raider-class Corvette is assigned to accomplish tasks that larger warships cannot. These sleek and powerful ships are often used for reconnaissance missions, surgical strikes, or suppressing enemy starfighters. The ship was so effective at these missions during the Galactic Civil War, in fact, that supporters of the First Order still make use of it in their fight against the Resistance. Though it has outlived the regime that created it, the Raider-class Corvette still spreads fear across the galaxy.

Although the Raider-class Corvette is one of the Empire’s smallest warships, it can be loaded with a surprising variety of ordnance, making it a threat to both enemy fighters and the larger ships that support them. To this end, the ship features concentrated batteries that further enhance its prodigious firepower, granting it an extra die while performing a primary, torpedo, or missile attack.
