It is the Eclipse.  Pricing will be $275(credit), which is really high for just a fighter.  Vanguard type?

They call it a space superiority ship...

Yeah, based on Tyler's hint at the bottom I would think it would be the Eclipse as well.

That post was pretty funny, the bickering between the forum troll especially. The ship looks sort of meh to me but it was intentionally grainy and vague.

The price point definitely says Vanguard to me. Maybe its supposed to be the middle ground bomber between a Gladiator and a Retaliator. This one definitely seems to be giving off a stealthy feel. The way the reveal is panning out, I'm getting a SR-71 Blackbird vibe, even though the tali looks so much like a Blackbird already.

My dream is for something shaped like the TIE Bomber to enter the game. Love the cockpit/bomb bay asymmetrical-symmetrical look.


The Guardians fleet needs you, citizen. Suit up today!

Yup, it's a stealth bomber and the warbond version is on sale for $250.

Meet the Eclipse

Armed with multiple torpedoes and state-of-the-art scan diffusing technology, the Aegis Eclipse has been the UEE’s best, and least known, protection. It is the Navy’s top choice in border defense and a preferred first-strike weapon against the Vanduul. Now, in an effort to increase transparency with the Xi’an, the Eclipse is declassified and available for purchase by Citizens.

Maybe it is just me but I feel like the upturned wingtips look ridiculous.

It may be that the wingtips fold down. It's a military craft, could be designed to take up less space in a carrier. Or maybe it just looks like that and is weird.  ???

Saw a facebook post from RSI about these today and it had some lined up on the tarmac and then a cluse of them flying overhead and the wingtips were folded down so they are going to look like B-2s.
