Movement of game pieces help

Hi all

First time poster but I’ve been working on a modification of a module (pirates of the spanish main) to utilise the star wars xwing template system.

I’ve looked at the xwing mod and noticed it uses custom java functions for the movement. I’m wondering is there anyway to perform the same type of manoeuvred just using vassal itself?

Ideally for example a ship does a hard turn I want it to end facing up or down in relation to it’s original start point?
