    Its live... and its an interesting ship.
    Named mine Sherman, because I've been on a bit of a WW2 kick and named it after the Sherman tank. With that Heavy Trico Launcher console... she's an artillery ship. And that Drill Experimental Weapon is pretty nice.

    I might be getting it just for the Drill weapon since the default lightning bolt messes with the Space Barbie on many of my ships.

    IMO I'd rank it up there with Voice of the Prophets as one of the best. Its not energy based, which means it can be used against Aceton Assimilators, so it also has utility besides just being a damage dealer. And apparently the DOT is longer than the recharge on the Drill so you can at least get 2 stacks rolling before one wears off. 3 if you're lucky.

    I'm just wondering if this will have the T6 Fleet version? I tend to buy these T6 ships, unlock the trait and get the fleet version to upgrade it.
    Can't find it in the ship requisition list (yet?)

    It's already 11-console fleet level, so no fleet version is needed or will exist. That's a nice bonus for players who don't want to join a fleet or are in a fleet that hasn't leveled up their starbase yet.

    Yea... its already at Fleet level.

    Yeah, I was surprised. I had an FSM and T6X Token ready to get the Fleet version. Couldn't find one in the Ship Vendor, so I went to the Ship and counted 11 Consoles (always need to verify what Announcement Blogs say).

    I checked out using one of my 100% off Tokens in case they pulled another Titan. No, so I used my remaining 50% off Token instead.

    For a C-Store ship I was actually surprised at how much of a jack-of-all-trades it is in every way: performance, stations, console, trait, X-weapon and appearance.
    Usually, C-Store are good or great at one or two things (usually the trait and/or the console) and the rest sucks, but this one was a good surprise.

    The only part really lacking is how the canon parts really don't mix well with the T6 ones, so you'll most likely either go full canon or full T6 look.

    A warning, though, the Drill experimental weapon is nice but it has an HORRIBLY painful-to-hear sound that keeps going even when the target is dead as the projectile has a fixed time of existence. Thankfully, the sound is only really heard if you're close enough, but since it's a nimble escort, you'll likely hear it quite often.

    IIRC, there are two different kinds of 100% tokens, one that can only be used on older c-store ships, and one that can be used to buy any ship, new or old.

    Is the one that works the one in the gift box? If so, I have three of them but I have not unpacked them. Will remember that for the future.

    You mean the ones they sell in November during Thanksgiving? Because I think those are the ones that can't be used to buy the newest c-store ships.

    I think it's the opposite in my case. The one I used was definitely in a gift box but I don't remember which pack it was from. Probably a Legendary.

    According to the wiki:
    There are two versions of the 100% Discount Coupon: Tier 6 Ship, one of which is earned from Event Campaigns, the other from Zen Store purchases.
    Ships in the New section of the Zen Store are not available with the Event version of the coupon, these are typically the most recently released ships. The Zen Store version does not share this limitation.
    Additionally, the Event Coupons are normally Account-Bound, while Zen Store versions are normally tradable (except for a few exceptions, e.g. bundles) with other players directly. They cannot be sold on the exchange.

    Ahh. My mistake, and that does make sense.

    There are no 100% off ship tokens that can be used on C-Store ships marked as "new".
    ^^^
    That said, a couple of times; they FORGOT to mark a C-Store ship as 'new' in the database that blocks the 100% tokens from being able to be used for the first few days of a new ship's release (last happened when they released the 'Titan' T6 version.)

    Wrong, i just got mine with with the 100% free token, but you must buy it either with zen (the 3 pack one) or comes in a bundle... anything for free its not usable.. you know this because those tokens comes in a box that you can mail or put in the fleet bank, where i putted mine before the purchase..
