Pegasus Escort Carrier

Greetings Citizens,

Please welcome the Pegasus-class Escort Carrier to the ranks of the UEE Navy! The Pegasus-class is the Empire’s premiere small carrier, capable of carrying a thirty-craft strike force deep behind enemy lines if necessary. The Pegasus (formerly the Panther) is currently being grey-boxed by the team at Foundry 42… and in honor of the holiday livestream, they are sharing these first images of the ship’s exterior!

 

Lot's of Pictures ahead!

ATV10 today Ben revealed that the Escort Carrier formally known as, Panther, would be renamed....

 

Sounds familiar....

 

That's too bad. When I first heard the name Panther for the Escort Carrier, I thought, "Meh." It wasn't bad. And it sorta made sense since the Bengal Carrier is named after the Bengal Tiger. Over time, the name Panther has grown on me, and I'm kinda disappointed that it's being changed. :(

The Bengal Carrier is actually after this:

Look how fierce she is

And her destructive weaponry aka claws

Here are the pictures of the (newly renamed) Pegasus-class Escort Carrier that premiered on today's Holiday Livestream.

(These were pulled off of Reddit for those of you that can't wait, but CIG is supposed to release more/better quality pictures directly on the RSI later on)....

Pegasus Escort Carrier was revealed in today's CIG livestream :)  <<--- See link for more images

 

It is 700m long (Bengal is 1,100m) and can hold up to 16 Gladiators (or can swap out other ships up to a Redeemer). :wub:

Honestly a lot longer than I expected, a lot sleeker too.  Was honestly looking to see a rather squat, blobbish ship, all function w/ no form.

 

At a quick glance I'm assuming that the port side pod is going to be landing/retrieval, while the starboard protrusion seems to be forward launching, with hangar space in between...I think

I love the name Pegasus! :) I'm very pleased that CIG chose to rename the Escort Carrier to Pegasus.

 

The Escort Carrier is the capital ship that I ultimately want to serve as Eclipse's command ship and mobile base ship. I mean, the Idris Frigate and Javelin Destroyer are impressive ships and all, but an Escort Carrier is a whole 'nother level. :D

I like that the Escort Carrier cannot be bought with real money. It's a cap ship that a group of players will have to cooperaterively purchase, own, and operate -- it's truly a TEAM SHIP. I expect that Imperium will eventually own multiple Pegasus Escort Carriers for the Fleet -- but I definitely want Eclipse to have our own carrier. B)

Newbro, but I can almost assure you, if its anything like eve's super carriers/ titans, and they only balance it on the shear cost to build one, then your going to want to build these like crazy. And if it is as strong and useless as a titan, then you will need a major support fleet for the beast. But it looks as pretty as it comes!

Maybe a secondary hangar you can use to start several ships simultaniously or to land ships while others are taking off, because it looks pretty much like it has a runway if you consider the length

      Hello! 
      I am taking any interesting offers into consideration. Im looking for 250USD in store credit. Please state your offer with PP fees included. I'm looking to pay somewhere between 70-80% so 200$ is my max. 
      Thanks in advance. :)

      CIG has teased us a bit of late with the newest (upcoming) ship concept.   LIkely to be named the RSI Mantis (I'll modify the title of the thread if it is called something else like the K'Lis).   Much of the information we have is leaked or hacked from files but now we have the clearest picture of the ship now posted (see below).    Manitis is a perfect name for "Snatching" another ship out of Quantum Drive and this image shows some type of EMP device that will likely be used to Interdict a Ship and bring it out of Quantum speed - like as shown in the image with the Caterpillar
