    Enjoy type 9 with body kit permanently placed on it, with more hardpoints/hull/even less maneuverability.
    You forgot the 3 Federal flying shoes in that list

    But I believe that the T-10 will at least look somewhat different, even if it keeps the Lakon aesthetics.

    Hope that, His end won't be like Dolphin at 2.2.

    Panther clipper concept art as per the newsletter shows only 1 nacelle type thruster thing.


    They are very similar tho and you could totally be right and the usual caveat of concept art vs actual implementation... Its just where my mind went when I read Type 10

    Interesting name. More combat-capable ships from Lakon get outright snake names (Asp, Keelback) and Type-10 totally falls into the freighter naming scheme. But the "defender" points towards something different - quite curious where that will slot in.

    If I had to guess, I'd say it's not a variant (Type-6 battle-rated is a Keelback, so a battle-rated Type-9 would have its own name?) but a new ship with "just" more of a martial bent (hence defender). So bigger than Type-9 with a huge hardpoint?

    That'd be hilarious with a turret in multicrew if it's in a good spot with a good firing arc.

    hope it is a new ship and not just a close derivative of a pre-existing one

    Prolly gonna be something in the size range of a type 9, heavily shielded with lots of boom sticks attached, lots of multicrew slots and an ability to carry a metric 💩 ton of fighters. Slow, cumbersome, yet with the ability to lay down some hatred. Sounds kinda interesting to me if it's what I suspect it will be.

    Thanks anyway

    Please Frontier, give it a decent jump range and cargo space at least on par with the Cutter. In any case, looks like I will be buying a new ship soon. Perhaps it's time to do a bit of iCutter trading and save up some extra dosh.

    Even if it's T9 with more combat capabilities, might be quite OK. I'm looking for a good mining ship, this might fit the bill. Or, if it allows more cargo then the Cutter, then I can reassign the Cutter to mining.

    That's not a guy lol. It's been in the game for a while.

    Here's hoping that the Type-X is the most capacious cargo carrier in the game so far.... (but also suitable for modification into something rather defensive )
