Star Citizen Alpha 3.2 Loaner Rules
Backers who own ships not available in the PU (Persistent Universe) will receive respective loaner ships until those ship become "Flight Ready."
- Loaner ships are not replacement ships. They are not intended to provide a 1:1 "best case substitute" for a ship that isn't flight ready yet.
- Due to the current restrictions in Arena Commander, certain ships have a secondary loaner to allow them to play in all game modes i.e. the Freelancer MAX gets a Freelancer for PU and a Hornet for AC.
- As new ships become available the loaners can be substituted by CIG.
- Loaners are not permanent additions to players accounts. They are temporary until ships become flight ready.

Alpha 3.2 Notable Ship Matrix Changes
3.2 turned out to be a more interesting patch than we previously thought. Although pretty much the only major gameplay feature to be added, lots of enhancements to performance and the other features make for a much more enjoyable experience. Also the better frames in PTU have somewhat made it to the live servers, which makes a difference from previous patches where performance at live was worse.
Some of the notable changes are:
- Orion now gets a Prospector loaner instead of a Reclaimer
- Vulture loaner is the Prospector
- 890 Jump gets 600i loaner
