We're told that the Vanguard “trades the maneuverability of the Hornet and Gladius for extended range, armor, and durability.” The ship has additional armor and offensive measures for electronic warfare, something we previously discussed with CIG CEO Chris Roberts.
The press release indicated that this is a “limited concept sale,” stating that the ship isn't yet available for flight or hangar display. Its price is a staggering $250 USD, including the game's “lifetime insurance” option.
More information can be found on the official website.
As always, we strongly urge our readers to place careful, great consideration into any such game content purchase.
