As a Minbari I use my scouts to help every of my ship to reroll the attack dices on one target, most of the time the largest enemy ship

And most of the time I only need 1 turn to blow it out

That was a 3-way battle... everyone knows that 3-way battles don't work ;)

Somehow, this quote with your icon learing next to it had me on the floor. :lol:
Yummmmm.....Flan! It's really just styrofoam. Tasty styrofoam, like twinkies, but somehow better for you.

Corvans can be super pesky in large games. They can always give you rerolls and as a patrol chioce you can field enough to be initiative sinks (though I appreciate some might consider this unsporting).

Even if your enemy does try to swat them they still have the stealth to deal with.

Its not a good idea to get them in range of your enemy's secondarys though. This makes their weaponary pretty useless (apart from as a poor mans AF).
