armada Fantasy Flight Games has released their newest preview for Star Wars Armada.  They say about the mechanics of this system.
Even though Armada is a game of capital ships and starfighter squadrons – with battles on a scale large enough to alter the fate of the galaxy – their outcomes still hinge upon you and your decisions. If you wish to emerge victorious, the first thing you’ll need to do is learn how your ships function in battle. Capital ships aren’t nimble like starfighters. In fact, the larger and more powerful your ships, the more time they take to respond to your commands. You can’t react instantly to threats as they arise. You have to plan for the future.
armada choosing commands They talk in this update about what players can do on their turns, how movement works, and a bit about setting up an attack through your turn actions.  This appears to be a rather promising game basedon what they have written in this preview.  Though it is based somewhat on the X-Wings miniatures system it is still obvioulsy unique in its execution which means it should add a little spice to gameplay for those that have been playing a lot of X-Wing over the past few months.
