Unfortunately in level 6 and i don't have Luke, Ithorian, ATAP an A-Wings yet.
The Jug ocuppies 20 capacity which is not worth it for me, and the heavies are what i use right now.
So i am left with Han Solo and AT-AP.

I will try those ;)
Thanks for the help!

all units mentioned can be useful against shields, but no one of them can be compared with ithorians - only 3 UCs for a phenomenal help against bases with 3-4 shields. So you can put 4 Ithos with 12 UCs, far better than 20 UCs of Jugs while they can be used to trigger SCs inside the shields.

Try to unlock them as priority in the next event/conflict where frags for them are available. Game becomes more easy after you have unlocked this unit, and you will save time and troops.

The good thing about the Jugg...it can take out other items after the shields. With the Ithorian...it is usually dead by the time the shields are down.

Use some Medical Droids with Han if you are going that direction. Han also takes out traps.

Jugg is worth the 20 UC, even at your level.
Just remember to put a screen before it, like gamo or chewie to soak in turret firing while it takes down shields.

heavies medics are fine too. Just need to watch out for mortar farm, and traps (bring van).

What medics are you referring to? Medic droids?
Do medic droids follow heavies or just infantry?

My unit of choice to take down shields is the Elite AT-TE hero. It works well with one TX and then jets after it. Force multipler for the jets. Put it in close because it is slow but it takes a lickin and keeps on tickin
