Finally! After a lot of waiting, here comes the new ship in Elite Dangerous. A message was posted to Galnet a few days ago showing the Alliance would be taking some aggressive steps to combat the Thargoids, after the surprise attack on a few starports.
They commissioned a new ship from Lakon Spaceways, and it is based on the Type-9 Heavy. The statment from Lakon was brief, but it gives an idea of what to expect.
“The Type-10 boasts greater speed, acceleration and maneuverability than the Type-9, and also offers a more focused hardpoint loadout. We envisage it being particularly effective in combat situations.”
Whether the Type-10 will be the perfect ship for destroying the alien menace or more of a hype-10 (that joke hurts us too) that lacks any distinguishing feature remains to be seen. As of right now, it is still not available. We expect that to change on Thursday to correspond with the timing for Frontier’s usual updates and community videos.
Are you looking forward to checking out the new ship, or are you just getting back to another run to earn a few more credits? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
