Patch 11 has files for 3 new lancer variants. They are called DUR, MAX e MIS. The MAX has 4 main engines but I think it doesn't have jump engine. Also the MAX as the same class 5 gun then the base model and the DUR and MIS have a different one with 4 barrels.

Now the pics: http://imgur.com/a/fS9om#0
The screenshots are in order DUR, MAX and MIS. And the cameras are in the same positions for size comparison.

Also remember that if CIG didn't say anything about them it's probably because they aren't the final variants. But it also means that CIG is working on the lancer variants not only the cockpit.

    I'm pretty sure we've known about these names for a few weeks at least. They appeared in a recent piece of Lancer concept art. I believe the community determined MIS was a missile boat of some sort. I don't remember the other two.

    I'd wait for the constellation variants before thinking you're done getting mocked :P
    I'll have to tell my freelancer fanboy friend about this though.

    The DUR seems to have a lot of sensors, so prob a dedicated explorer vessel?

    The nose looks slightly questionable. I think the mocking might increase slightly :P

    That's what I was thinking. DUR science/exploration. MAX looks like shipping with the larger hull. MIS I can't really tell, I guess more combat oriented. There's so many different little nuances between each of the variants. This is really cool stuff.

    If someone I know gets the DUR I will have to make fun of them. When they tell me they got it I'll be like "HURR DURR I GOT THE DUR FREELANCER HURR DURR."

    Yeah, it's proper ugly. But if that's the explorer version, that's the one I'm getting.

    Mock as you will.

    Is that legit? EDIT: So it is legit, hhmmmm. I have no idea how I feel about this.

    Yes. More tears to power the cryengine.

    With every thread our graphics will become more powerful.

    Not sure which one i will go for, Max is looking appealing with that massive cargo hold and engines

    Wow, I like the MAX. It reminds me of some of the original Freelancer concept art. It gives the Freelancer more gravitas. I do think your right about the DUR being an explorer variant or some type of long duration endurance explorer. No idea what the pods near the engines are for, maybe some type of auxiliary engine?

    Thanks for finding this, cool stuff so far if it is indeed accurate.

    Well this is absolutely awesome. But I bet somebody at CIG is going to be in trouble for releasing this ahead of the brochure and commercial. :(

    Max does look good. Not too big on the other two's looks myself. The standard (or whatever its called) is pretty great though, so we'll see when they release details. But I do like the quad engines.

    Extra fuel tanks maybe?

    Those pods could be some sort of long range fuel tank maybe, which would make sense for an explorer.

    If I had to guess I would go with extended fuel tanks for long duration flights.

    I think that's the best guess, but there are also some smaller pods under the wing. I guess they are really too small to carry much fuel for such a large ship. I wonder what those are then?

    They almost remind me of torpedoes. More likely sensor pods. Big sensor pods.
