WOIN What does a wingover do?

Does a wingover do anything besides damage the ship? I looked it up and it seems a wingover is a type of turn but nothing in the text of the exploit indicates that

Wingover (requires AGI 5+; piloting skill). To perform the maneuver, the pilot must make an AGI (piloting) check with a difficulty of 10 + the ship's current speed. If successful, the maneuver is performed and the ship takes 1 SS damage; if unsuccessful, the maneuver is not performed, and the ship takes 1d6 SS damage (although this cannot reduce it to below 1 SS)

Well, clearly, a wingover is a maneuver that, um, maneuvers the ship so that it, uh, moves in a certain way, involving one or more wings.

Seriously, a wingover is an aerobatic maneuver that reverses an airplane's direction of travel. So that is the effect.

That's odd - the original manuscript reads:

"Wingover (requires AGI 5+; piloting skill). You can reverse direction 180-degrees instantly with a half-loop plus barrel roll. The starship you are piloting must be Class V or smaller. This maneuver is part of the move phase. To perform the maneuver, the pilot must make an AGI (piloting) check with a difficulty of 10 + the ship's current speed. If successful, the maneuver is performed and the ship takes 1 SS damage; if unsuccessful, the maneuver is not performed, and the ship takes 1d6 SS damage (although this cannot reduce it to below 1 SS)."

It looks like the first sentence got removed. It's the thing that the Millennium Falcon does a lot.
