    Drake Kraken

    Now let's hope they come in 2 different skins. A pirate-themed skin and a military-themed skin. I mean, I am mildly interested even though this thing would be way out of my pricerange but even if I did want one I need a nice and clean looking Helicarrier as I sure as hell don't want it looking like a rusted up pirate filth tugboat with skull decals

    Yeah, while the trailer showed it as a badass carrier launching fighters with a music theme that reminded me of the movie Battleship but it can also be used as a mobile base for Prospectors or Vultures. The Kraken by its presence alone would already be a big deterrent to pirates so it could be used to oversee mining/salvaging operations with the Kraken having a massive cargohold for storing the finds.

    Updates to Crytek's lawsuit vs CIG

    No, discovery happens before that date. So you have pleading-discovery-trial afaik. At the moment the Judge can already tell Crytek to narrow down their list of discovery demands if she feels they are irrelevant to the case. The actual trial is set for 2020. Anything before that is just pleading, motions, adjustments, discovery requests, more motions, more adjustments in order to finally have your day in court with all the evidence you can get (provided that both parties haven't reached a settlement before that date).

    Hammerhead - Gunboat Anti-fighter

    Loaded up my Hammerhead now that I was able to check it out in the PTU3.3. First thing I noticed was that the turrets do not have S4 guns but S5 guns. Now 24 S5 guns sure sounds even more intimidating than 24 S4 guns (provided those measly 2xL powerplants can even keep up). And with those S5 guns you won't have pesky Vanguards just sitting outside your range pew-pewing you without any risk to themselves whatsoever (depending on what weapons you equip yourself ofcourse). 😄 CIG also changed the loadout page slightly it seems as individual turret entries are no longer there. All you have are the guns themselves. So unfortunately I wasn't able to test my theory if I could remove those twin-link 'pucks' and see if I could replace the 4 S5 guns with 2 S6 guns. Guess the turrets are all 'bespoke' now and the only 'customization' you have is swapping out the guns themselves. Ah well, no TWIN-S6 DECK GUN for me... On another fun note, the Hammerhead is listed as a 'Corvette' too. So even though it doesn't have any Capital sized parts (yet?), CIG apparently considers the Hammerhead to be a corvette. 😎 The missile racks were 'downgraded' though and are no longer Marsden 683 racks. Instead each bay now has 2x Marsden 543 racks. So it can still carry the same number of S3 missiles per bay but you won't be able to swap those racks out for Marsden 616 in order to equip S6 torpedoes. As the Marsden 616 and 625 would be a no-go now I bought me 8 Marsden 515 racks as well as 8 S5 torpedoes instead to see if I could equip those on my Hammerhead. Sure enough I was able to equip the Marsden 515 racks on my Hammerhead and put a S5 torpedo on each of them for a total of 8 S5 torpedoes. The problem however is that they clip horribly so I'm afraid CIG will either nerf the hardpoints at some point or change them to 'bespoke' racks that can only have S3 missiles as I doubt they will make the bays on the actual model larger. 😞 Just tested with Marsden 524 racks as well and those also have clipping issues. Not as pronounched but they still clip into the interior of the bay as well as with the other missile. So I'm guessing we'll get 'bespoke' racks at some point that only allow S3 missiles as that would be the easiest way out for CIG to 'fix' it. 😒

    Anvil Valkyrie Dropship

    Personally I don't think I'll be adding this ship to my fleet either and keeping my Redeemer (even though that one is now going to be a full gunship), but just to be on the safe side I did pick up a Merchantman>Valkyrie CCU for $25. Mainly because I still have a couple $0 Redeemer>Merchantman CCUs to give me a nice $100 discount in case I do want a Valkyrie in the end.

    I simply wrote "GIB CARRACK!" as I cba to write an essay for a ship that I'll never buy anyway as it's likely going to cost $2000+

    Anvil Valkyrie Dropship

    Actually, the Redeemer was $250. Still... if anyone still has an old $0 Redeemer>Merchantman CCU they could give themselves a nice $100 discount.

    I must say that was a pretty big surprise to me!

    Apparently 'small vehicle' didn't mean a Cyclone as it can apparently accomodate an Ursa Rover.

    Yeah, this could go anywhere from $700 to $2000 depending on what CIG Marketing thinks they can get away with. After all, it's not a military carrier but a mobile truck stop but we will just have to see how this goes.
