This is entirely speculation, I have noticed that the Fleet Reinforcement versions of some of the hangar craft exist and seem to follow the pattern of the advanced to elite pattern established by the Elite Scorpions.

This info is pulled from the Fleet Reinforcements and I think it is very likely that these how the Elite hangars will be like.

Elite/Fleet Peregrine:
-Phaser Turret
-Phaser Dual Cannons
-Quantum Torpedo Launcher
-Cannon: Rapid Fire I

Elite Stalkers/Fleet Caitian Fighters:
-Tetryon Pulse Cannon
-Tetryon Dual Cannons
-Thoron Torpedo Launcher
-Cloaking Device

Elite/Fleet To'Duj:
-Disruptor Turret
-Disruptor Dual Cannons
-Quantum Torpedo Launcher
-Cannon: Rapid Fire I

Elite Orion Interceptors/Fleet Orion Fighters:
-Disruptor Pulse Cannon
-Chroniton Torpedo Launcher
-Tractor Beam
-Extremely fast flight speed

I reiterate that is only speculation, but it fits the pattern of the new level of fighter getting a new or upgraded weapon and an ability.

Very rare Orion pets...will they also be able to steal Strange Alien Artifacts? That would be nice.

Anyway, I won't spend 70k Dilithium just to get an improved version, I've better stuff to buy with that amount.

Flights of 3 fighters with a quick relaunch time and these abilities? Oh I'm sure this is going to go over REAL well with the PVP crowd.

I'm not really impressed, to be honest. Pets do terrible damage with their energy weapons because they run very low power levels, so most of their damage comes from torpedo spam... Hence changing photon to quantum is a downgrade, because quantum torpedoes have lower DPS. I guess it's possible that they could crank up the torpedo damage like they did for Vo'quv's birds of prey (B'rolth does 10K damage with a quantum torpedo), but I haven't seen that happening in small fighters.

This would be a much better pet with a photon torpedo launcher and High Yield.

As it is... I'm thinking stick with the Uber-Scorps.

Again, pure speculation:

Elite Peregrine/To'duj:
  • Dual cannons
  • Turret (in place of the pulse cannon)
  • Quantum torpedoes
  • Torpedo High Yield 1

That's basically the same as the Elite Scorpions.

Elite Runabout:
  • Dual Beam Bank
  • Beam Array
  • Chroniton torpedoes
  • Tractor Beam 3
  • Target Subsystem: Engines 1

Elite Delta Flyer:
  • Dual Beam Bank
  • Beam Array
  • Transphasic torpedoes
  • Tachyon Beam 3
  • Target Subsystem: Shields 1

Type 12 Shuttlecraft:
  • Dual Beam Bank
  • Beam Array
  • Beam Overload 1

Elite Bird-of-Prey Retrofit:
  • Dual Cannons
  • Turret
  • Quantum torpedoes
  • Cannon Rapid Fire 3
  • Torpedo High Yield 3
  • Attack Pattern Alpha 1
  • Battle Cloak

That Elite BOP would be crazy OP (I love it)

When it comes to Hanger Support Craft all we have currently is a bunch of single target attackers.

I'd like to see some AOE variant Hanger Support Craft that we can mix and match our Hanger load outs up with.

Example:

Ultra Rare Bird of Prey

Disruptor Dual Cannons

Disruptor Turret

Cannon Scatter Volley 2

Torpedo Spread 2

Attack Pattern Delta 1

Could you imagine having 2 BOP that are focused on dealing heavy damage to a single target and 2 BOP that are focused on hitting everything in their firing arc on the same squad?

I'd love to have level 3 skills on my Hanger Support Craft but I feel they would become way OP.

I'm crushing targets with ease using proper timing with my ABOP and they only have HY2 and RF2; could you imagine what would happen if we had BOP that had HY3 and RF3
