The Type-10 Defender is the result of collaboration between the Alliance and Lakon Spaceways. With the threat of xeno-war looming, the Alliance's naval arm saw the urgent need for a weapons platform capable of withstanding heavy, sustained attack. Utilising a reinforced Type-9 chassis as a starting point. Lakon overhauled and geared every aspect of the design for combat, producing a military behemoth that could be produced in volume at short notice.
— In-Game Description
The Type-10 Defender is a Lakon Spaceways ship that is planned for Elite Dangerous: Horizons update 2.4. It can accommodate Multicrew, and it is not a renamed Panther Clipper. As of 2.4's release, the Type-10 Defender remains unavailable in-game; it is believed that it will be released in the coming weeks, as part of the Aegis storyline involving the creation of new anti-Thargoid weapons.
