    Freelancer DUR?

    What are those big pod things on the wings of the DUR? Are they extra fuel tanks?

    RSI - Phoenix (Constellation)

    It came with LTI.. that's about it.

    Aopoa San'Tok.Yai

    Well, I'm glad that back'n'forth stopped. So, I like the Khartu, but it was (it really was) sold to us with a 2nd seat and more/better guns. I know they didn't specify, but all the artwork at the time had 4-6 guns. It was literally marketed with the tagline "the bane of UUE pilots", referring to what we all assumed were the military ships. The mistaken assumption here is that we assumed we'd get a very slightly worse Khartu, but we got the Khartu-Al, which is a humanised scout racing variant of the Khartu.. a point which always rubbed me the wrong way. I was sold on a combat ship; they really didn't make that distinction clear at the time, or not to my eyes anyway. That said, I'm not melting my Khartu-al. That thing is damned fun; weak, but hilarious. I DO -NOT- BELIEVE that CIG will change it much. They may bump up the shields, but it's not going to get more/better guns, or that second seat. It's just not. So taking the reality of what it is as of right now, I'm still not melting it. Heck, it's in my damned signature.. that's how much I like it. The STY however... now there's the combat ship we were made to believe we were getting the first time around. This thing actually has a chance against superhornets/sabres.. at least on paper. I'm not a marvellous pilot and I can't get even close to taking out a SH in my KA, but I reckon I could with the STY.. so I'm in. I'm excited again, and I love it! And it's gorgeous to boot!

    I'm liking this ship more and more - I think it's what I wanted the Khartu to be

    Xi'an Scout - Khartu-al (export model)

    With the AOPOA SAN'TOK.YĀI now out.. I'm not what I'll do with my ol' Khartu-al. The Khartu would be perfect if it only had better guns :/ it was the 2nd ship I bought (back when it was suggested it had 2 seats and 4 guns), but with the dinky peashooters I'm just not a good enough pilot to take others down with any kind of ease. The SAN'TOK.YĀI is looking much more like what I wanted from the Khartu in the first place. I know this is a Khartu forum, but it's worth checking out the Q&A https://robertsspaceindustries.com/comm-link/engineering/16872-Q-A-Aopoa-Santoky-i

    RSI - Phoenix (Constellation)

    I wonder if that's still the case - there's been soooo many ships added since this was released! Can't wait to put this beauty

    RSI - Phoenix (Constellation)

    It definitely used to be my favourite.. closely followed by Khartu-al and Vanguard. And after what they did with both of those in comparison to their sales pitch, I'm a little scared what they'll do to the ship that I intended to spend most of my time in the verse piloting. Here's hoping the changes to the Phoenix still leave it a cut above. I'll never melt it, as I want to gain rep as a VIP transport .. I just want them not to stifle that plan by making the Phoenix underwhelming.

    RSI - Phoenix (Constellation)

    So I haven't really kept up with the changes for the Phoenix over the years - I initially bought it because 1) Lux and 2) better power+weapons From reviewing the ship matrix, it looks like the Phoenix is now exactly the same as the other Connies, except with maybe just an extra small auto-turret, which used to be the PDS. Doesn't the Phoenix have a better power plant (or better anything else) any more? No more benefits except the luxury starting components?

    After watching those vids, I'm starting to wonder... Are we the bad guys?

    An Overclocking cartel would be awesome - count me in!

    I'd imagine the refining room is more to do with refining things like plants into useful chems, rather than refining ores...?

    Aegis Vanguard - Hoplite Variant

    I read that no, you can't. However I now can't find the source, will keep looking.

    Aegis Vanguard - Hoplite Variant

    If you like the Vanguards as they are, rather than what they were sold as, I can't see the Hoplite being a better purchase than the Warden. At least with the warden for a few bucks extra you get essentially 2 extra variants due to the BUKs. Still.. they really aren't what they were concepted as, and they have way less punch than we all thought. Hopefully the balance does something amazing. I'm holding off melting until I see what CIG do to these beasts to make them worth $225+. It's weird, when I planned my fleet a year or more ago, it included the Vanguard and the Khartu-al as two of my main ships. I reckon now that they're both left out before we launch. I hold only the vaguest of hopes that we'll see these ships return to even close to what we were sold.

    Xi'an Scout - Khartu-al (export model)

    So... is there any hope for the Khartu? Does anyone actually think it'll get a loadout worth the effort they spent to make this beauty? I'm really starting to doubt that the Khartu-al will make it through to beta, looking at melting it for something with guts.. maybe a Glaive if it comes up in the Alien Ships day of the Anniversary.

    MISC FREELANCER!

    I don't think they will though... those engines are kind of iconic. It may not make any sense, and you may lose vertical maneuverability with them side-by-side, and they may be a wider target so you're more likely to lose them with spray-n-pray shooting from enemy ships, but they're iconic
