Two new ships coming to Elite: Dangerous

No, not the Alliance Challenger and the Krait Mk II. - two NEW NEW ships!

The Frontier store has, in an “oops!” moment, leaked the name of two new Elite: Dangerous ships.

Anyone who has used the store, knows you can filter the DLC by ship model, to find all the paints and kits for a Viper, for example.

The filter used in the URL is “?ship_model=” which is a unique identifier for each ship.

Today, CMDRs found (briefly) there were two new ship models listed

268 “Alliance Crusader”

 

269 “Krait Phantom”

 

These disappeared rapidly, but since they are distinct new model numbers (the Krait Mk II is “ship_model” 279) it would seem they herald the arrival of a new Alliance ship and a Krait variant yet to come.

This shouldn’t be a shock to anyone who payed attention to Frontier Expo last year, when Sandro stated that we would be getting “many” new ships. What’s unusual here is us finding out in advance, since Frontier are pretty tight lipped about game info prior to release.

It does make me wonder what other ships are docked in all those numeric gaps!

Thanks to CMDRs Nicou(@BlackBigBang,) Jurema and AymeriX ( on Twitter for posting this info and forwarding it to me. We believe the CMDR who made the discovery was CMDR KuzSan, so congratulations for the find CMDR!
