I love the design, plus look fellas thats a Huge hardpoint on the top behind the cockpit, we finaly have a new ship coming with a Huge hard point!
All 5 hardpoints are up top, smalls up front, larges on the sides and huge on the centerline behind the cockpit.If the Mamba has all of it's HPs up top, I'm 100% in on this thing. Especially with the huge just above the cockpit. And if it's as maneuverable as it sounds, this thing could be fun.
I know what you mean, and no I'm not taking this personalIt looks purty, but I'm not sure why the moans (and not just in here, please don't take this personally Dutch) about more 'combat' ships.
The thing with elite is that you can explore/mine/trade/mission run/pirate/fight with almost any ship.
Play it your way, and use the ships for whatever you want to outside of their 'designed' role, it's much more fun.
I guarantee that if there ever is a new 'explorer' ship it won't just be used for that
If that's what the Krait Phantom turns out to be then you won't hear or see me again, I'll be out in the deep black.Krait MkII take two. The Krait can already function as an explorer. If all they do is drop the fighter bay for two smaller modules it will still be a solid exploration ship.
