In a fleet engagement, I agree that there is no way I can win in a straight up battle. However, stealthed boarding craft filled with Commando droids will be quite effective.

And does Guri get the Stinger? Maul got his ship....

While this usually means nothing, it is good to note that due to the extreme range as well as the armaments they can hold, they are a serious threat. What I imagine will happen is that the battle will begin and the Broadsides will take out a few of the Harrower's, perhaps damage the Invincible, and then retreat to hyperspace as pirates love to do.

Continueing to do so with their long range as well as fast support ships such as the corvettes and Interceptors, will make the battle an extremely long one, and the pirates will depend on supply lines to keep their missiles stocked. However, due to the range and speed I believe they will be able to play hit and run well enough to whittle down the opposing fleet.

Do not forget they can all arm themselves with Diamond Boron missiles I think they are called, and that the vessels are very well suited for laying down barrages. Barrages that would likely cause big enough explosions to destroy surrounding star fighters. Should they close the corvettes are numerous enough to completely negate their agility.

Indeed, this is not a head on battle, but a contest of wits.
Considering the CIC has no real tacticians, then Kilran should dominate a contest of wits.

Anyway, good luck Canino. I might actually try be more neutral than originally planned here, but I still want Aurbere to win
Neutral? But I helped you.

Thank God.

That is all.

The gladiators had a similar role on the opposite side, and they are tougher and faster..... or at least as far as I know.

While true, the Colicoids themselves had at least two protecting their own base. I assume they would have some garrisoned elsewhere planet side. And I love them too. I was hoping I wouldn't have to go against them.

I think I topic to be discussed is Kilran's assassination. Guri, Urai Fen, and commando droids would make short work of him. Durge could potentially go after Veers if need by.

OK, you got me there. But I was mostly on your side, I even argued for Revan.

Didnt the stinger one shot an ISD?

Surik didn't get her Inexpugnable, little bigger than the stinger but you get the point
Stinger's a little toooooo powerful.

In the same way that Beni didn't allow Cronal's capital ship or G0-T0's yacht.

According to Wookieepedia, Kilran defeated a Jedi Strike Team during the Battle of Coruscant. He was also a flashpoint boss, so there's that.
