Overview

The Fer-de-Lance Lightspeeder, FdL Lightspeeder in short, is a nostalgic, nevertheless exclusive line of the Fer-de-Lance by Zorgon Petterson Group. With a design waking memories of the first days this ship entered the spacelines, a hull paint by a well known artist, a slightly higher speed and a better recharge rate it soon became a top-seller.


Upgrades

Fer de Lance equipment bays come prefitted with high quality, custom designed equipment. Fittings are standardised though, so one could -as a temporary fix- replace a piece of kit with an inferior product, naturally only when no FDL-dealer is available.

Compatible equipment for this ship. Factory standard equipment is marked in bold, all other equipment can be added by the player.

Remarks

Some words from the author:

This package offers a somewhat sleeker, slightly faster version of the Fer de Lance. Although rarer than the standard FdL, the lightspeeder can be found as both a non-player ship and for sale in some of the higher tech shipyards. I hope you like it.

'Neo-Retro' Fer de Lance - a little faster, a little closer to the original 'elite' shape

The original Fer-de-Lance from Classic Elite
