That Imperial Courier is coming together nicely, it's not a huge stretch to assume it will be available in 1.3. Gimme.

I wonder what it'll be, the name (Courier) implies it's about speed and distance, rather than fire power.

Today, for the first time, I saw a couple of NPC's flying Condors. Are these new? I don't think I saw them mentioned before. They were no match to my Vulture, though.

I could have sworn that I saw some System Authority Vessels back in 1.0 or 1.1 that were Condors, but I could be mis-remembering another type.

They've been in the game since beta, apparently, but along with the Imperial Fighter they are NPC only ships. You sometimes see them outside of stations and in combat zones with capital ships.

That's my hope, I don't need another combat ship.

F63 Condor is the "minion" combat ships for federation. Like "there are so many cmdrs, release the condors!", sort of.

They do the same role as the Imperial Fighter.

NPC only. Short range, high maneuverability and firepower, but one spit in their hull and fireworks.
