    Breaking News!

    We are not kidding... today two times we have seen Space Fighters flying over PA!

    They didn't shoot, but maybe this was only due to a technical problem.

    Watch out. At the end of the video report, you can see that only ONE person was able to steer the whole fleet! (One offical, the rest were so called Ghosts).

    This means we can get into serious trouble... plus: the Medium Fighter V was not (L)!!!

    Update:
    This is the full report, containing all video material we could get. It's the uncesnored version and it was not easy to get the full report out.

    If you speak swedish: please help!

    Thanks for taking the time to put this together Hon, it's appreciated. :)

    And ... wow, that looks really interesting. I wonder exactly what they will be for (hangar operations or otherwise), and how soon the space flight system will be implemented.

    At any rate ... anything space flight excites me, so I hope it's not TOO long. :p

    Omg!
    Thx Smoerble for making and posting this report! (btw you seem to have a mean PC there :p )

    Seem they're testing the spaceships IG on the prod servers so they are ready when they launch.
    Or is it a storyline event? like Calypso is in danger? It's been like this in the past... we as Colonists were to discover and handle the events on our own, as if we were alone on that distant planet :D
    Who knows?

    I personally think Space is close to be launched now.

    I assume, the Space Fighters can dock on motherships, not sure, if they are able to Fly from planet to planet themselfs.

    The media section linked in that MA buzz shows a cryo chamber inside the mothership.

    If they use cryogenics to sustain body over long distances, then most likely small ships such as fighters won`t have such capabilities. They`ll have therefore a limited ranged.
    I see such fighters useful in orbital skirmishes, pvp, maybe hunting space mobs... etc.

    Would make sense.
    Bring back the question: we already had not enough pilots for Calypso only... will every planet get 40+pilots to extend travel capabilities? (No, i don't want to lower the value of your hangar!). It's my personal guess, but even 40 on each planet is not enough imo.

    I just don't want to see that we need to wait again 3 hours before we can travel to a different planet at a normal price... I am not sure, if MA adressed that too.

    CP, Foma/CND used to be hard to get to destinations. Most likely VTOLs and fighters will be able to go there. Before it wasn`t possible to get easy access but that might change and everyone with small cheap VTOL might get there.

    Planets on the other hand might not be easily reached and perhaps for good reason. Who said traveling between planets should be a Sunday walk in the park. Ofc, I`d love to see a system that`s not cumbersome but PP might not want to easily risk their hard earned players to some other planet.

    SWE: Vtols, vi vet att dom flyger fort så
    ENG Vtols, we know they fly fast so

    but this is all guessing because it sure sounds like "vtollers, vivevillesiwutchu" :)

    Why do i get the feeling that Space will be released in VU12 along with Arkadia, in an effort to keep some people from migrating?

    yup, this sounds quite possible, maybe that's why those hunters have been seen in PA?

    Interesting enough that would have the opposite effect for me... I always wanted to not have to leave planet by Teleporter so was thinking I would stay till space was implemented. I was thinking of relaxing this for Arkadia but if space is "near" then there is a good chance I will delay leaving till there is a spaceship that can take me there... if space arrives at the same time as Arkadia.... well, Wistrel the Astronaut will hopefully be born!

    The space ships are called Medium Hunter V (L) and so far they have only been spoted on Calypso, operated by MA personel. I'm certain it's a coincidence :D

    Sorry, but they are called Medium Fighter V, not Hunter.

    trading up?

    Given the chance, I'll sell my VTOL and buy a VTOL fighter, even a light one, for traveling, but I guess that they wont get you from planet to planet, so there has to be salvaging, mining or fighting coming in space, or all of the above..so that L rating will drop like a rock..hope they make damaged ships (enemy ships) capture-able if you force them down, of course repairable ships will never happen, they need the cash too much..lol.:surrender:
