Sansha NPC Stealth Bomber

Flicking through the game's NPC Database, I noticed one of the Sansha's nation Incursion Frigates appears to be set up with torpedoes...


To be specific, it was called 'Tama Cerebellum,'

The description, pulled from the client files (I'm not in a position to go and hunt one down at the nearest incursion), reads:

Subject: Prototype Nation Vessel (ID: Tama Cerebellum)

Military Specifications: Frigate-class vessel. Primary role is to support Nation vessels against larger hulls. Moderate microwarp velocity. Long range torpedo fire support. Prioritizes large vessels as targets.

Additional Intelligence: Est. 100,000 civilian abductions from Tama V. The Cerebellum identifier suggests a regulatory role amongst other frigate-class variants.

Synopsis from ISHAEKA-0037. DED Special Operations.
Authorized for Capsuleer dissemination.

So, I have 3 questions:

I: Is this real, an NPC stealth bomber?
II: Dose anyone have any pictures/videos of it in actions - I'd be quite keen to see them, preferably since the V3.
III: When is this coming to the Sansha LP store?

In mom sites in incursions, hits like a truck, Probably the most deadly site spawn since they spawn in waves mid site, and can easily alpha most ships off the field if they don't loose any of the wave before they fire first. Die very fast though.

Assuming I am thinking of the right ship anyway. Otherwise, fairly wimpy if I have it mixed up.

You can just Google Tama Cerebellum you know.

It's a pretty ****** looking low polygon model.

That's Lirsautton Parichaya, not Tama.

Tamas are just annoying scram frigates with torps in normal sites.

I think I saw those ones, two - are they the ones that do about 4,000DPS?

I might take something big to a vanguard site and have a look for them, thanks.
