Kestrel & Falcon OXP

From Elite Wiki
(Redirected from Kestrel & Falcon)

"All ships now come with air freshener as standard!"

The Benulobiweed Testing Department is proud to announce the reintroduction of both Falcon and Kestrel to the ooniverse. Following the galaxy-wide product recall of these two models, the structural integrity and life support systems have been thoroughly revamped and now meet the safety standards of more than 30% percent of all known systems - a first in the history of our corporation! This massive increase in safety has been achieved without compromising the speed and manouvreability that you've all come to expect from a Benulobiweed Inc product.
