Under the command of Jun Sato, the Phoenix Home was the nerve centre of the fledgling Rebel fleet, and it makes its way to Star Wars™: Armada in the Phoenix Home Expansion Pack. What this small-base ship lacks in size and firepower, it makes up with its ability to command your fleet. Along with one pre-painted miniature starship, you will find two ship cards, ten upgrade cards, and all the dials, bases, pegs, and tokens you need to control the battle, more effectively coordinating your capital ships and fighter squadrons alike.
The Rebel Alliance has never commanded a fleet that could match the Imperial Navy ship-for-ship. Instead, the Rebels have always chosen their engagements carefully, using guerrilla tactics, launching surgical strikes, and making certain to fly their ships clear of the battlefield before Imperial reinforcements could arrive and choke off their escape.
As you might expect, these Rebel tactics required careful planning and precise execution. And as the Rebel fleet was growing in strength, it owed much of its success to the efforts of Commander Jun Sato and his modified Pelta-class ship, Phoenix Home, both of which arrive to Star Wars™: Armada in the Phoenix Home Expansion Pack.
Commander Sato and the Phoenix Home led the struggle against the evil Empire from the heart of the Rebel fleet, helping the Rebellion's ships and fighter squadrons punch above their weight by supplementing their firepower with pinpoint coordination. In Armada, the Phoenix Home is represented by a unique Title upgrade that you can apply to either the Modified Pelta-class Assault Ship or the Modified Pelta-class Command Ship. For three fleet points, it allows the Phoenix Home to carry one more officer than your standard Pelta-class ship and grants it the ability to store up to four command tokens, rather than a number equal to the ship's command value.
Ensure that your strikes are executed with exacting precision. With its new officers and Fleet Command upgrades, the modified Pelta-class ship from the Phoenix Home Expansion Pack is bound to become an integral part of your Rebel fleet.
This is not a complete game experience. A copy of the Star Wars: Armada Core Set is required to play.

The Pelta is the only Rebel ship that can equip the Fleet Command upgrades which can buff your entire fleet. It is a strong support ship, probably best purchased after you have the rest of your fleet assembled.
The standout upgrade cards in this pack are the officers Major Derlin (valuable damage mitigation) and Ahsoka (token manipulation adds flexibility to swing dire situations to winning engagements).
The Command variant is the cheapest 3 Squadron carrier available to the Rebels. With the All Fighers Follow Me and Fighter Coordination upgrades you can push around a lot of fighters to trigger Commander Sato's ability to deal black dice damage at long range!
The Assault variant can be combined with the Flachette Torpedoes and an impressive anti-squadron armament to make a great fighter swatter.
The Pelta, as a bit of a hybird, suffers in that is competing with other ships for it's points value. The Assault Frigate and Yavaris can bring more to the squadron game and the MC30 can make a stronger brawler.
Where this ship really shines is in larger point battles, team games and Fleet Sector Battlers where the fleet commands provide so much value.
