Ever noticed the little ships attached under the Stratios & Nestor?

They appear to be two different versions of a "captain's gig/yacht", similar but distinctly different in shape to the Astero. I've uploaded a screenshot of the side-by-side zoomed in CPPC renders here.

I've not been able to find any previous mention of these peculiarities.

It'd be kinda cool if we could actually use these in some way, but I guess they are only really intended for the use of crew on ships not captained by a capsuleer.

Naglfar has working elevators, though toilet flush on the whole ship stops functioning while they operate.

But hey - elevators. Cool

Meh, it's just more proof that Rogue Drones are the real power behind SoE.

I, for one, welcome our Artificially Intelligent, Cybernetically Controlled Amazonian Drone Overlords.

... and two players combine.
The little frigate adding their tackle abilities to the battleship then gains its protection ... and when the enemy tries to run, why the frigate detaches and gives chase!

(No, seriously don't implement the kangaroo ships, please)

Not even once

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

Golem Mass 94,335,000 kg (94.3 million kg,) which gives you 8 effective torpedoes at 11,794,375 kg (11.8 million kg) per effective launcher.

Manticore Stealth Bomber: 1,466,000 kg (1.5 million kg,) and provides 5.25 effective torpedoes...

Seems like it would be more efficient to weld a few stealth bombers to the Golem's hull instead of fitting torpedo launchers...

I always thought it was a detachable cargo for looks.

Oh, I perfectly understand, Hal Morsh — a mission like this requires courage, skill, and heroism… qualities you are clearly lacking. Have you forgotten you're one of the bloody immortals!?
