@Montoya Are you saying that the British & US Marine Corps hover craft are UGLY?
[singing; "I'm to sexy for Montoya".....] LOL
It is about time that CIG made some space ships that did not all look like WWII fighter aircraft... It is a Space game after all.

It is a smaller version of the Kraken (pocket carrier if you will) and will be VERY USEFUL in the 'Verse.
btw - Thank you for your Pledges!

I like it and would have snagged one. But, I got suckered into a Kraken last go around. You could almost get 3 Libs for the price of 1 Kraken. And still require less crew and carry more ships/tanks. Did they say if the Lib will be able to repair/rearm?

A ship of great utility, indeed.

I'm still wishing they did something else with the Liberator's bridge though.

A more-asymmetrically-featured bridge similar to that below would have really made this ship rock.

I certainly hope that it can repair/rearm. A flying mechanics shop in the verse is very exciting to me!

Repair / rearm / refuel by hand (GASP!)

Grabbed a standalone. With the 2 man crew and the more practical size, it will be the perfect mobile mining camp or tow truck for a 'Verse chapter of the Fuel Rats

I would think a Vulcan, StarFarer, or SRV would be better for those roles.

I always saw the Liberator as a means to easily and quickly transport small ships from one area to another sort of like this which is used to transport yachts that can't easily make a trans-Atlantic crossing on their own.

I know it took shape langue inspiration from one of these but its role is far greater than what this can accomplish.

On the upside, the Q&A seemingly confirms that small fighters can be spawned by the Liberator. That's likely good confirmation of that feature for larger carriers too.

On the downside, the Liberator is not as flexible for above-deck cargo hauling, larger-than-XS-sized ship landing, or refueling as hoped. Though it makes sense why.
