The Green Squadron Pilot os the perfect candidate for this as he is one of the lowest generic pilot skill ship to have an Elite option. SInce we can add 2, let’s add Trick Shot and Snap Shot.

This is a great way of hiding behind an asteroid to get another defense die, but also gain an attack die whenever you attack. Next up is Snap Shot.

Since the Green Squadron Pilot is PS 3, you have a number of opportunities to perform a snap shot since most ships will activate before it. If a ship flies to close, blast him out of the sky!

Let me know what you think, leave it in the comments below!
