Hotfix Echo is now live!

Dear players,

We have been working on Hotfix Echo, and here are the things that you should expect to arrive to Tranquility today after the downtime (11:00 UTC). Some of them may have been less in the spotlight than others, but we believe these all reflect the will of the community and are for the greater good of the game. Many of these changes are supported by a multitude of spreadsheets made by many individual community contributors, such as; starter fittings, AV, HAV slot progression, turret statistics and so on. So let us proceed, and know that I am going to elaborate on a few topics, and end on the new vehicles, to make sure no one leaves early to yell angrily about stuff.
