Card TextEdit

"When a squadron you attack suffers at least 1 damage, you may toggle its activation slider to the activated side. If it was already activated, it suffers 1 additional damage instead."

Icon SQKey Bomber Bomber. (While attacking a ship, each of your Icon Dice Crit adds 1 damage to the damage total and you can resolve a critical effect.)

Icon SQKey Heavy Heavy. (You do not prevent engaged squadrons from attacking ships or moving.)

Rules Clarification Edit

If "Dutch" Vander is attacking and the defender does not suffer damage but another enemy squadron does (due to resolving an effect such as Biggs Darklighter), Dutch Vander’s effect does not toggle the defender’s activation slider.
