DECOMMISSIONED CONCORD SHIPS DISAPPEAR INTO PRIVATE COLLECTIONS TO NEVER BE SEEN AGAIN

103

Not long after CONCORD revealed their new revolver-shaped line of ships did the bidding start on the old rusty-tool shaped line of ships. Private collectors from every corner of known space—and even parts unknown—flocked to Jita placing bids on every single scrap of dented metal CONCORD paraded on by enroute to the galactic junkyard in Delve.

Being wary of the sensibilities of the Caldari, CONCORD universally declared that all previous-generation hulls are up for grabs and winner takes all. Thus, thirty million rusty pipe shaped ships went right into Entity’s collection, sparing pirates everywhere the double-agony of being shot at by something that looks like it escaped an N64 game or a Texas Instruments calculator. Unfortunately this also means that, yes, these ancient hulls are more like finely-aged wines and still exist somewhere. One can only hope they’re boxed away in storage containers within Jita’s endlessly deep caverns, never to undock again or be seen outside of 2003 strategy guide covers.

Something curious to note is that the decommissioned CONCORD line of ships actually have half the fitting slots of the new, much more pointy CONCORD ships, meaning the police force of the galaxy has effectively doubled its idle firepower. Itching to pull the trigger on a ship that looks like a weapon itself, the new Marshal Battleship houses not six, but sixteen high-powered turrets of any caliber and size.
