I'd settle for modular weapons for the SRV.  Anti armour/anti ship/anti xeno.

So I got this game, and presumably there's a squad.

My Cmdr name is z64555, as usual.  Please give me a shout here on the forums, IRC, or discord if you want to be friended otherwise I may just ignore the request.

But key points as below

Quote from: Frontier_forum


Ownership
Purchasable with a large amount of credits.
One Fleet Carrier per Commander. Available for base game and Horizons players.


Capacity
Fleet Carriers have a total of 16 Landing Pads, composed of:
8 Large
4 Medium
4 Small
Set permissions to allow others to dock at your Fleet Carrier.


Operations
All Fleet Carriers feature rearm, refuel and repair services.
Commanders can choose a number of loadouts for their Fleet Carrier, governing services/module and ship availability to support a number of different activities, such as:
Bounty Hunter
Mercenary
Pirate
Trader
Smuggler
Miner
Explorer
Search and Rescue


Travel
500 LY jump range (per jump)
Schedule jumps from the Galaxy Map when you want and from wherever you are in the galaxy.
Commanders require a unique resource to fuel the Fleet Carrier in order for it to jump.



Clearly being full time working father of two children aged under two there is no way I'll be affording one of these before they move out 😂😂


Who wants to donate the GTVA Colossus to the Hard Light squadron then?   ;7

The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

I hope they add ways for players to pool money for a massive purchase like a carrier...

That said, it looks (right now) like carriers are going to be personal, meaning players don't need any sort of squad affiliation to get and operate one. There was some mention of docking permissions, and I'd bet dollars to donuts that "squad only" is an option.

Colossus could very well be a go! :)
