Aegis Idris Frigate

Recommended Posts

Idris-M/P showed up in files.

Idris-M seems to have 1x S10 Destroyer Mass Driver weapon and its turret loadout is:

2x S4 (Dual Revenant Ballistic Gatlings) - Remote

1x S7 (Dual M9As) - Manned

5x S5 (Dual CF-557 Galdereen Laser Repeaters) - Manned

10x S8 ASM-20/c Stalker V TL CS torpedoes

 

Idris-P turret loadout is:

4x S4 (Dual Revenant Ballistic Gatlings) - Remote

6x S5 (Dual CF-557 Galdereen Laser Repeaters) - Manned

It has no missiles or torpedoes so far.

 

They both have a bunch of other components too.

8K Idris in R&Y - so close

 

Sadly only the Idris M can spawn in hangars atm. Together with the Low Res Idris hidden in Hurston from a previous 3.3.5 patch, speculation is rife that a flyable version may be available a lot sooner than we think...

tobad i only have the P, would love to spawn it ;o

Word on the street is that the Idris will make an appearence in game as part of the Intergalactic Expo (SC first ingame event?) on Aegis day (26th ?). Maybe we will finally see it in all its glory, albeit from a distance thanks to the NF zone.

As I understand it, they are reworking the Captain's chair.  I caught wind of this on a recent Noobifier video,  A welcome change I'd have to say.  If they are indeed reworking the bridge it doesn't make sense that you could spawn the ship.  But then again you can spawn the Redeemer, but that is way over due for a rework too.  >_<

November 24th, 2018

This month, our friends at Aegis Dynamics have asked us to pass along another message to Idris-P owners and those amongst our ranks who consider themselves enthusiasts:

A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM AEGIS DYNAMICS

The Idris-P's legacy of excellence as an ardent peacekeeper speaks for itself. But sometimes, keeping the peace is not enough.

Aftermarket kits, initially produced for UEE government agencies seeking an improved patrol/protection plan, will be offered to all Idris-P owners.
 
On Aegis Dynamics' featured day at the Intergalactic Aerospace Expo (26th November), all Idris-P owners will be badged and given the opportunity to upgrade at any time, into perpetuity. However, a limited amount of Credit SKUs will be rolled out and offered on a first-come-first-serve basis:

Wave 1 at 16:00 UTC, Wave 2 at 22:00 UTC, and Wave 3 at 04:00 UTC.

For your convenience, we have provided a Q&A regarding the upgrade kits below. Also, look for further details during this year’s Anniversary Special. 

We thank you for your loyalty to the Aegis brand and hope you enjoy testing all 26 of our flyable ships, wherever in the 'verse your journey may take you.

Idris-P Aftermarket Kit Q&A


What is the purpose of this Aftermarket Upgrade Kit?
This kit is designed to adjust the role of the Idris-P by providing equipment tailored to dealing with the swarm threat of carrier-type ships. By increasing the Idris-P’s anti-fighter capability, and adding a size 10 weapon, it allows the ship to be more aggressive offensively.

What does the Aftermarket Kit change about my Idris-P?
The equipment in this kit provides three changes: First, all four standard remote turrets can be replaced with the included Automated Behring M2C Point Defense Systems (2x S4 Hardpoints each). Next, a single Missile Turret equipped with two A&R Harrow Anti-Ship Missile Launchers (8x Size 3 Missiles), can be mounted in lieu of a standard Behring M3C ASA Turret. Finally, the kit provides a Size 10 Hurston Dynamics Exodus Laser Beam.

Why beam weapons now?
Beam weapons were originally off the table, but during development, we have been R&Ding different ways to approach them that avoid the traditional gameplay concerns with ‘hitscan’ weapons. We envision beam weapons the same way as analogue guns are to the Gatling guns in the ballistic weapons family: an incredibly high fire rate but generally low damage per ‘shot’, compared to, say, Laser Cannons that deliver a volley of fire rather than a stream. Of course, ‘low’ damage is a relative term when talking about the S10 Exodus.

How will beam weapons compare to energy or ballistic ones?
Beam weapons provide a much quicker projectile, therefore require less maneuvering to keep them trained on a moving target at range - a key benefit when firing from a relatively slow platform like an Idris. Another benefit, like all energy weapons, is the lack of physical ammunition requirements. A useful feature when mission endurance is required.

Does the Kit make my Idris-P more powerful than an Idris-M?
No, the Idris-M is still the best option for destroying big ships; out of the box, the railgun is much more powerful when the shot lands and its power requirements play better with the ship’s other systems. The M also has stronger armor and higher performance default components.

Will I be able to have shields at 100% while firing the Exodus?
The Exodus will require a significant amount of power to fire and it’s unlikely that all ship systems will be able to run at 100% whilst doing so (particularly when fire is sustained).

Will the upgrade influence cargo capacity?
No. The equipment involved in these upgrades does not impinge on the Idris-P’s cargo spaces.CloudImperiumGames_StarCitizen_IdrisK.pn

ok, but I do not undestand: if you can upgrade when you want "perpetually", what's the point of this "limited" upgrade sales?

I believe what it means is that the Idris-P Aftermarket Upgrade Kit will be sold in limited quantities for Store Credit, but forever for Warbond.

So, if you're like me and done spending money on Star Citizen, you'd want to use your available store credit to buy one of the limited Aftermarket Upgrade Kits when they're available. If you can't get one while they're available, you'll be out of luck and have to spend new $$$ to buy it.

And, of course, you can always save up UECs and buy the AUK in-game.
