Oh goodie, we get a choice of three warbirds at T5 for free. I'm happy now.
Somebody getting uppity about canon? No problem! Just take a deep breath, and repeat after me:

Sadly no. You need to consistently fire on the same target for duration of stacking to occur. If you break target, the stacking is broken.

Fair enough... I guess the fleet module discount is worth roughly $15 bucks alone. I'm still deflated over the level access change though. It was explicitly stated that we'd have access to this at 40, and emphasized that this was beneficial over the normal Tier5 VA ship acquisition. Poor decision from a marketing standpoint.

I will say that the ship is a beauty, so the wait is that much harder! Great work overall on the ships, but some forethought about the promise vs the delivery would have mitigated a fair bit of short-term disappointment.

The hull on Dhelan retrofit, Fleet Dhelan, T'Varo retrofit and Fleet T'Varo seem to be messed up.

The Fleet Dhelan has less hull than the Dhelan retrofit (I believe it should be around 31k for the retrofit, 34k for Fleet one).

The T'Varo retrofit has been (rightfully) given 27k hull in latest patch, Fleet one 29,7k. Is that being changed back?

Lastly, looks like the Fleet Ha'Apax has some curious Boff layout and power bonuses. Unlike the other Ha'- ships, it doesn't get the same boff layout as the non-fleet version. And it gets +5 shields, +10 auxiliary?

Oh, and where's the Haakona?

I don't see which ship is an Engineering ship below Tier 4.
They all look to be science ships.
We don't get to pick which profession we want?

Is the Ha?apax Advanced Warbird still going to have separation capabilities or has that been scrapped?

A HUGE thank you to Cryptic for the Mogh-class battle cruiser!

And I hope the Dhael ends up a real beauty, so that at least part of the argument about the Tier 5 Dhelan/Mogai dissipates (as at least part of the people just don't want to fly the Dhelan but would want the sci focus).

Thanks for catching this. Those hull hitpoint changes were made after the Blog was drafted, and didn't get updated.

We've updated the blog now to update the hull figures to their correct numbers:

T'varo Retrofit: 27,000 (not 30,000)
Fleet T'varo Retrofit: 29,700 (not 33,000)

Think you missed the Dhelan...

Dhelan Retrofit: Hull Strength: 34,650
Fleet Dhelan Retrofit: Hull Strength: 33,000

Never seen a fleet ship get a reduction.
