Can we please confirm is the MK XII Jem Hadar ground and space sets can be traded after purchase?
This information would be great help.

Thanks....
Since the Mk XI sets aren't tradeable, I don't think the Mk XII sets will be.

The dreadnought though... I fail to see the use of such a ship. No turnrate, a massive hull and cannons. Tac abilities are useless if you can't make use of your cannons, or if you can't use cannons at all. It's like a recluse with a Cmdr tac + DHCs, i've tried this and it's lame. The enemies of the dominion will laugh hard in pve and pvp when this ships is going to hit holodeck.

A real tactical carrier should have 25k hull, cannons, 2 hangars, 0.85 shield modifier and 12 turnrate, ie something extremely weak and also extremely dangerous. You made a fat whale with tac cmdr abilities for beams. LOL (and i hate saying this word, but it comes from my heart this time!).
I've seen this argument before! Or one darned eerily similar..

Where the Vo'Quv (and it's Mirror) is essentially a giant BC on steroids sacking 2 weapon slots for hangars the stats clearly illustrate (at least to me) that the Jem'Hadar Heavy Escort Carrier and the Jem'Hadar Dreadnought Carrier each sack a weapon slot for hangar and a Device slot for cannon-compatability. At least as i see it. A most Fascinating build to be sure. As is the Vesta, a Science Carrier that can equip cannons!

Something i never imagined to see yet i can't help but consider the possibility of getting it for one or more of my captains. So don't despair; its combination science powers, firepower and fighters isn't anything i'd want to go up against! And if they have Scorpion fighters in a device slot...

I envy you, Sir; and your Vesta.

Those Dominion Escorts are escorts in name only...

Ok - the Carrier was mentioned it was twice the size of a Galaxy Class IN THE SHOW! You can't get any more cannon than that!!! They need to buff the scale at least.

Bran - can you comment on this?

Sorry for another question but could you please clarify the situation with cannon weapon on these two ship ? Can I equip dual Heavy cannon on the Dreadnought like we can on all Klingon carrier?

Indeed it's a wonderful ship even if it's hard to fly. At least the +7k hull on the JH HEC will make it really easier to use. Still i'm rather disappointed, i feel that those +7k aren't completely necessary. It's a bit too much. I could understand +5. This escort is going to be really too tanky with a great dps thanks to its console.

All 5 of these new ships can equip any cannons including DHCs.

Will the price of the new Lobi Items stay the same? I mean the new ship 800 Lobis and the set items 200 each?
