The Aegis sabre is now flyable.

Aegis-SabreAegis has released yet another superb combat machine designed to excel at space superiority fighting. While the combination of fixed and gimballed mounts may turn off some pilots, the ship is proving to be a popular dogfighter.

Xi'An Scout Hangar ready

With 2.2 comes the first alien ship in the game. While not flyable yet, the Xi'An Scout aka Xi'An Khartu-Al is available in hangar for people who own the ship. STLYoungblood has done an excellent job as always of showcasing this fine piece of Xi'An engineering, check out his video here.
