Super ships isn't the most accurate of titles, but it works. I am a veteran of all of the escape velocity games. After reaching the end of the game, I always wanted something to demonstrate that success, and then new challenges to pit myself against. This is that desire made manifest.
The Azdgari's propensity to faster ships has resulted in the addition of two more engine pods, mounted on each wing. This gives the Azdgari Arada a significant advantage in maneuverability, but at the cost of reduced shield power. The Arada has been equipped with the standard civilian version of the Azdgari shield generator.
