EVERYONE: Week #4 WILL introduce the Rebel U-Wing / Empire TIE Brute Armory Skins

See the info found for Main Objective #24 and the Week #4 Elite Crates (See Pool “lcpool_epRedCup_grind_04” by scrolling down)

YOU WILL ALSO GET SAMPLES

U-Wing Sample - Level 1 - Rebel Faction

According to dataminers there is a chance for samples in the othe crates as well.

THERE SEEMS to be a lot of confusion on this point.

I have seen Samples in Once-per-Day Daily Crates / Free Daily Crates (View Ads) (reward is random so not guaranteed), and for those HQ 6 or higher you will see Samples as a Reward for completing Objective #6 Reward, and Main Objective #24, as well Rewards for "other" Week #4 Event Objectives.

These U-Wing / TIE Brute Samples are similar to those for Sullustan Sharpshooters / Rodan Recon Sniper Samples in that a Unit primarily / only created via a Armory Unit Equipment Buff appears also as a Sample Unit.

The U-Wing / TIE Brute Samples when used appear in your Starship Command as a Starship Strike.

Hope this helps clear the confusion...

NOTICE: U-Wing (X-Wing Buff) / TIE Brute (TIE Fighter Buff) Also Applies to Traps / Pilots

Early word from Data Miners is that the Armory Equipment for U-Wing (X-Wing Buff) / TIE Brute (TIE Fighter Buff) applies not only to the Starship Strikes but also X-Wing Traps / TIE Fighter Traps and Alliance Starfighter Pilot / Imperial Starfighter Pilot‎.

I can confirm that we get samples in crates after finishing research and at #6 you get 10 samples... And believe it or not, the Tie Brute is even more brutish than the U-Wing... at L10 it causes 55760 damage versus 55680 :-)

This was what I wanted to know. And it will make difference now because it seems finally we are getting an USEFUL unit, even being an Armory skin, and probably will be hard as hell to upgrade it to high levels like Rodians/Sullustan or Fang/Strikers are.

I already tried 2 samples of Tie Brute for my Imperial Base, they are Level 9 for my Starship Command. I used 1 sample against a turret to save my Deka and the turret was destroyed like we use to do in Wars with Yavin OP. The other sample I used against a high level Safehouse, but 1 Tie Brute wasn't enough to destroy the building, and I had to use a Striker to get the rest of CB.

At least we can use the Tie Brute samples to hit SCs in Wars without Yavin OP. In PvP, don't see much use, only to save your ass in an emergency or hit Safehouses when looting CB.

Unlocking the units offered these past two weeks, I'm pretty sure I got the unlock AND samples in the final Event crate. Maybe 20 frags and 10 samples. I expect the same this event - unlock and samples (though there are plenty of samples en route to the final crate). Those samples are always handy in wars...

Well, I unlocked the TIE Brute and it doesn't seem to apply to pilots. Bugger. That was the main thing I thought would make it useful, cause I don't see myself cooking TIE fighters in place of medships or strikers.

Euph - Early word from Data Miners is that the Starship Armory Equipment - DID apply - to Pilots but your post seems to indicate otherwise...

The Starship Armory Equipment is also suppose to apply to X-Wing / TIE Fighter Traps - but this needs validation.

After a few more report we will have a clearer picture of what this Armory Equipment does and does not do.

It DOES seem to apply to traps, so they're right about that. Turning it on and off changes the appearance of the hologram, and it does spawn a Brute in a test HD I just did.

But I've been running the equipment with pilots and TIE fighters in my starport; it applies to the fighters as you'd expect, but not the pilots. I'm hoping it's a glitch.

Thats awesome that it turns traps into Brutes.....shame about the Pilot though.
Brute samples are awesome though, I used them twice in wars this weekend, saving 4 UC to take out squad centres is great. Also you can attack up a couple of levels and the Brute still takes out SC. My lvl8 took out lvl10 SCs.
