    Galaxy Map -> red ship icon?

    Fellow pilots,

    what's the meaning of the red ship icon you find in galaxy map?
    afaik blue one means ship stored, cant figure out what red means, anyone knows?

    hrmmm. Isn't blue your current ship & red stored ones?

    edit: Also possible its a kill mission?

    Donno, there's a bunch of conflicting posts on it.

    From a reddit post 3 months ago

    Hai Commander!
    There are four icons on any map that have special meaning:
    •Orange planet stands for "you have a quest in this system/station"
    •Green people icon is for "you have friends here"
    •Blueish circles or whatever it is is for "there are wingmates here"
    •Red ship icon stands for "you have a ship parked in this hangar"

    If you backed it on KS, you may have an Imp Eagle or some such.

    Think he'd have the eagle already, since that was for the merc pack at launch. I think it would be the Cobra MkIV? if you backed the KS

    it was a viper mk4 kindly donated by frontier developement for no reason (maybe for beta testing? dunno)
    suggestions please: want a general purpose for some fighting and rares trading, is the viper mk4 better than the cobra mk3 for this sort of things?
    i see it can hold 18 tons as well

    Not much in it. Go for whichever you can get the most jump range and ~20T cargo. Grind a few short rares routes then get a T6 and go nuts.

    Ah that's right, life time pass holders got a free Viper MK4.

    Both Vipers would be superior for combat; both cobra's superior for rare trading so that's more or less up to you.

    Could do something like this for the ViperMK4; http://coriolis.io/outfit/viper_mk_i...=.IwBhrSs1iA==

    Use the leftover Power to up what ever you want, could up the sensors to A class which is actually a quite nice QoL upgrade.

    I would use small fixed bursts and medium gimballed multis
