Thank you for that!

Can the group photo of the UCM ship be the UCM starter..?

I'm not sure, I think the picture is just the image of the UCM fleet that was released after Salute.

On the original note, great article, and I'm really excited for Dropfleet.

:shock:

Better start saving now!

Although I am a little dubious about the idea, I also love the idea of pre-invasion ships being maintained and used somehow... :D

My understanding is that is probably *not* the starter. Dave mentioned the starters would include a couple frigates and a couple cruisers (the medium sized ships pictured). The Beijing (big ship in the middle) is a battleship, which will be resin per Dave, and the small ships pictured are strike carriers and so may not be included either.

My personal expectation is a configuration much like the core 4 starters for DZC:

3 Cruisers (similar to the med dropships you get in each core starter)
4-6 frigates (basically 2 squads, so like the armor choices you get in each starter)
3 strike carriers (replacing infantry choices in the starter)

Based on what Dave and Simon told me, an average game size would be roughly the contents of 2 starters, plus a big ship like the Beijing (like a command choice in DZC) and a few specialty ships (like light dropships or scouts in DZC), so it makes sense to me.
