List #1

imperial_star_destroyer_approaches_earth_by_affet_kak-d6uxnfx

-Imperial II‑class Star Destroyer + Electronic Countermeasures + Wulff Yularen + XI7 Turbolasers + Boosted Comms + Relentless + Admiral Ozzel
-Gladiator I‑class Star Destroyer + Engine Techs + Demolisher + Assault Proton Torpedoes + Ordnance Experts
-Raider I‑class Corvette + Ordnance Experts + Instigator
Boba Fett; Bossk; Major Rhymer; TIE Interceptor Squadron x2

This list features just about ever capital ship that the Empire can must,except for the poor Victory. Demolisher is a mainstay any respectable Empire fleet, and a Raider is a good escort for it. Boba Fett and Bossk are a good anti-squadron compliment, as are 2 TIE Interceptors. The ISD is a big hammer that can crush any opposition that comes its way.

List #2

-MC80 Assault Cruiser + Electronic Countermeasures + Leading Shots + Engine Techs + XI7 Turbolasers + Redundant Shields + General Rieekan + Navigation Officer + Defiance
-Nebulon‑B Escort Frigate + Yavaris + Adar Tallon
-CR90 Corvette A + Turbolaser Reroute Circuits
-CR90 Corvette B + Dodonnas Pride
Dash Rendar; Luke Skywalker

General Rieekan makes an appearance in this Rebel fleet. His ability allows his ships to fire even after they have technically been destroyed. With 2 Corvettes and a Nebulon for back up, this fleet will ensure that it always will strike hard against the enemy, even if it means sacrificing themselves. Dash and Luke act as squadron support that can quickly adapt to bomb capital ships.

List #3

-Assault Frigate Mark II B + Enhanced Armament + Gunnery Team + Admiral Ackbar
-MC30c Scout Frigate + Foresight + Turbolaser Reroute Circuits
-Assault Frigate Mark II B + Expanded Hangar Bay + Flight Controllers
Luke Skywalker; Jan Ors; Wedge Antilles; X‑wing Squadron x4

This list is led by Admiral Ackbar, and he loves to broadside his opponents. Each ship in this fleet is able to stay at a distance and pound the enemy with heavy turbolaser fire at a safe long range. A sizable squadron compliment ensures that they will be able to perform bombing runs on the vulnerable capital ships.

List #4

SWM02_10194_CorrupterVictoryClass_MadelineBoni

-Victory I‑class Star Destroyer + Admiral Screed
-Gladiator I‑class Star Destroyer + Assault Concussion Missiles + Demolisher
-Gladiator I‑class Star Destroyer + Assault Concussion Missiles x2

This list is all in with the Gladiators. Featuring 3 Gladiator I-class ships, this list will get in your face and stay there for the brawl. Admiral Screed is carefully placed on the Victory to make sure that the Assault Concussion Missiles hit their target. $ capital ships and no squadrons is a risky gamble. If this list faced a squadron heavy opponent, he might be in trouble!

List #5

Paragon_SWArmada

-Assault Frigate Mark II B x2
-CR90 Corvette B + Garm Bel Iblis
A‑wing Squadron x8

2 Assault Frigates with the help of Garm Bel Iblis is a great start to this fleet. Garm is placed in the Corvette in an effort to keep him safe from harm whilst adding his commander ability to the fray. A healthy A-Wing squadron ensures that any squadron resistance or enemy bombers will be quickly quelled.

That’s it for the current Top 5 Armada lists. We eagerly await the next expansions that will add new elements to the way the game is played. Keep practicing!
