I used three moves and have no grids to show.

W-Wing on 4, flightless with transport; r3c1<>4.

Sashimi X-Wing on 8, rows 37; r9c4<>8.

DP 34, killers create pincers on 4; r4c4, r7c5<>4.

Dan, that's interesting because my first move, the W-Wing, makes the same elimination of r3c1<>4, yet I missed the fact that the puzzle could be completed with that move. Embarassed

Right. Marty's wing is here. AB are pincers on 4. If B is 4, D is 4. AD are pincers on 4.

No other advanced moves required.
