I searched all I could figure how to ask the question, but I've come up empty... Let me just ask anyone who has it(I don't)
As an example, the defiant retrofit (c-store ship) Gives a discount on modules to purchase the fleet variant, and I was wondering, what c-store purchase gives a discount on the Fleet Hoh'SuS Bird-of-Prey, is it the bortaus? And if so, which one? The tactical one or the pack?
Can anyone who has these ships please check for me(It should show 1 or 4 modules depending if u have discount or not)
As far as I know, the fleet ships only get a discount if there is a C-store variant of the ship. I.E., if there was a Fleet B'rel retrofit, and you had the C-store B'rel retrofit, you would get the discount. Buying the non-fleet Tier 5 variant of the same ship doesn't affect things, as far as I know.
That's why there's a discount for a Fleet Defiant (which, coincidentally, is arguably the best of the Fed fleet escorts) , because it has a C-store variant (Tactical Escort Retrofit, 2k zen). There is no such version for the Hoh'sus (or any KDF C-store ship, for that matter). No Fleet Hegh'ta Bird of Prey, no Fleet B'rel retrofit, no Fleet Varanus Support Vessel or Marauder Flight Deck Cruiser, no Fleet Bortas, Kar'fi, or Guramba. Feds have 6 discountable ships by my count: Fleet versions of the Tactical Escort Retrofit, Armitage Heavy Escort Carrier, Star Cruiser, Exploration Cruiser Retrofit, Long Range Retrofit, and Advanced Research Retrofit. All those, if a Fed has the C-store variant already, are 1 module and 20k fleetcredits. Otherwise they're 4 modules.
ouch. wow i thought at least the fleet ningtao was based off the c-store version with quad cannons..
All i can say is that sucks...
Well, it can't be just any C-store ship. It has to be both Tier 5 and C-store. Which is why I listed off all those ships that the KDF didn't get fleet version of, as they're all C-store Tier 5. The 6 fed ships are C-store and Tier 5.
