A brand new ship, the Osprey X is a drastically scaled-up version of its predecessor. The designers added another wing, giving it an unmistakable 'X'-shaped look head on, hence its name. Despite being over twice the size of its smaller sibling, the X is actually faster! It now has a respectable 4 missiles, and pilots are now able to have a much better armed ship.

This ship is the undisputed king of the light fighters. The designers have solved many of the problems of the class, by increasing the capacity while managing to retain the speed which make this type of ship so popular. You'd be hard pressed to choose between this and the Eagle Mk 3, and I think that this ship edges it. If you want a light fighter, buy an Osprey X - it's the best there is! The only drawback is that, being a new ship, the X is very hard to find.

Rating: ****

Test the ship!
