Thread: Type-10 Defender, new ship (not yet purchasable)

I remember Sandro talking about the Krait and Mamba recently (could also be Alliance faction locked?). As both of these are single seaters they would not show up on that list.
    I assume it's the Keelback version of the Type-9. Less cargo, way more attack power.

    You're all wrong, it's not type-10, it's type-1.0, a go-kart with one large weapon.
    Also, will self destruct if you're not constantly yelling YAAHOO into the mike.

    I hope so. I'd also like to see sane jump range. Here's hoping it can actually leave the system you buy it in (unlike Corvette that often needs A just to high-wake out).

    i think it could be a scavenger - rescue ship and ( i hope) having a different desing them usual would be logical with those new missions.

    That confirms a new ship. Silly guy.

    It should have an original design, not a reskinned Type-9.

    It could be like that. A bulky trade ship with heavy weaponry.

    Let me guess, someone in your back is pointing a gun at your head while you're typing this? Right?

    Lol. Good luck with that, the Cobra Mk4, and Viper Mk4, and diamond back(pick your variant) and keelback (though this is entirely forgivable, IF it showed as a T6 in super cruise!) say.... no.

    Enjoy type 9 with body kit permanently placed on it, with more hardpoints/hull/even less maneuverability.

    God I hope so. A larger "Combat Freighter" to have something as an Upgrade from the Keelback was something I was really hoping for to show up somewhere down the line. There is simply something amazing for me in flying a ship thats basically a freighter with some teeth and a thick skin. I simply love using my engineered Keelback for Bountyhunting, so if there was a bigger variant of it with even more bite I'd love go for that.

    Well... Thargoid stuff is excluded from Beta, Type 10 not in the Beta. Lakon being controlled by Thargoids confirmed!

    Type-10 denotes the number of flower petals it has. Right? Playable 'goid ships confirmed. We know your secret, Frontier!

    I wonder how this Type 10 will fit into Agony Aunt's table of ship weaponry?

    It will likely have a couple of SLFs capacity too, so could be a pretty potent ship to escort trader convoys at CGs or on expeditions Pure speculation, of course !
