Frontier have released a new ship to help players fight the rising tide of aliens. The Type-10 Defender is specifically designed to take down Thargoids, it’s heavily armed and heavily armoured, making it perfect for going toe-to-toe with the mysterious aliens destroying space stations throughout the galaxy.
The Type-10 defender was announced on Twitter, and with it specifically mentioning “the Thargoid threat” it certainly seems like the ramp up to a full on war in 2018:

According to a post on the Elite Dangerous forums, the Type-10 is “a military behemoth specifically built for combat and absorbing heavy hits. It’s available now from most Alliance-controlled, high-tech systems.”
The post also showed off the ship looking particularly glorious.
Hopefully, it’s not all for show and can actually survive a scrape with the Thargoids.
