“Stay sharp, there’s two more coming in; they’re gonna try and cut us off.”
—Han Solo, Star Wars: A New Hope

You’ve led squadrons of starfighters into the battles of Star Wars™: X-Wing, coordinating their movements and unleashing deadly bursts of fire on your opponents. But are you ready to take command of a fully operational warship? Huge ships are coming to X-Wing, bringing powerful new options for your squadrons, including new upgrades like Commands, Teams, Cargo, and potent Hardpoints.

But before a captain can start outfitting their ship for battle, they need to know how that ship operates. While these hulking ships can function similarly to standard starfighters, they also lumber into battle using a special tool to direct their movements. Once they enter combat, these massive craft won’t be brought down easily. Due to their size and unique capabilities, huge ships also use a unique damage deck that rewards shots taken from certain angles.

Veterans of X-Wing’s first edition can find these tools, along with everything else they need to bring their huge ships into the game’s second edition, in the Huge Ship Conversion Kit. In addition to a huge ship maneuver tool and huge ship damage deck, this kit also contains ten ship cards and five ship tokens that allow you to fly a huge ship in each of the game’s seven factions, a huge ship range ruler for launching powerful attacks beyond the range of standard fighters, 82 upgrade cards that invite you to customize the loadouts of your huge ships, ten Quick Build cards with helpful combinations of ships and upgrades, and much more.
