  • Aegis Retaliator

    They just released a video of the Aegis Dynamics Retaliator. It looks really cool in my book.

        Presently, the Retaliator is in the PTU hangar and some of the players have had the chance to explore. It is a military ship, so it is no frills. At least we have to wait until the top deck becomes available to enter. Here is what the Retaliator looks like inside:

          Here is a video of my Retaliator in my hangar. You can hear Randy in the background, too.

            Wow that thing look badass!

            1) Given that you won't have the torpedos in the PU (or maybe you can buy them) will the Retaliator fill a similar role as the Constellation? Obviously it'll be a lot better armed, but I believe they have a similar amount of cargo space.

            2) You asked whether the things you found are beds or escape pods. I believe they are the same, you sleep in your escape pods!

            3) I own a Ghost, wouldn't putting two additional guns on the canard turret destroy it's stealthiness with the added sig?

              Jester,

              1) Those who bought it at a certain time actually keep the military specs, so you buy the torpedoes.

              3) No, not really, you can turn off your weapons or rather the turret. This would reduce the EM signature. The Ghost's 2 panel shield would have a smaller signature than the 4 panel shield used by the military version, which really produce a much higher EM signature when they recharge. Basically, the canard doesn't change enough.

                1) Thats pretty awesome. Happy to crew for you and melt some Idrises!

                3) Fair enough. Playing around with the Ghost in vanduul swarm with just 2x boardswords made it feel really under powered. I assume running all ballistic weapons on it would be the best strategy to minimize em/ir.

                Hopefully the GUI improves to where its actually easy to switch those things on and off. I know the Anna profile for Voice Attack is working on disabling groups of modules with a single command. Can't wait to be able to say "rig for silent running" and have my ship disappear from other people's scopes :icon_cool Well at least thats the theory.

                  She's a beautiful ship. I do think it's a bit of a shame that the interior is "All hallway, no room" but on the other hand, it's kind of nice having a ship that you can actually get lost in.
