You can't buy the M3.

You can't buy the two m3s. You get the Venti as a reward but you must find & force to bail the Notus Hauler. I found only 1 Notus Hauler so far and it was with a rather Argon task force (1 Heavy Centaur + some 30 Novas and the Notus) that was cruising through pirate sectors.
I'm still missing some OTAS ships that are supposed to exist, the Eurus (m4), Astraeus Hauler (m7), Sirokos (m7) and the Auster Hauler (m8). Anyone seen them around?

You get the Heavy Centaur Prototype as the prize at highest rank with Johnferco.

You also get the Heavy Centaur Prototype from Plutarch Mining Corporation.

Haven't had any 'official' Duke's Buccaneers missions yet, but have managed to turn all his ships and a load of other pirates blue... Was entertaining taking a build mission offered at the HQ for that unknown sector, knowing that his (then red) Zeus, and a Pirate Galleon where on gate duty!!

Arrrgh! You mean I could have sold some of those 'unique' ships I have been hauling around for three game days and got the corporation rewards when I felt like it? Post PHQ, basically... Arrrgh again! My Elephant is going for the nearest shipyard on a selling mission...

So if OTAS doesn't give the Sirokos as a reward how are we suppost to get one (without scripts/mods)? The 1.4 patch says that the Sirokos can carry more marines than before but I have yet to see it in my travels/

Just about done with the OTAS missions. I have received the first two

rewards. I've only seen mentioned that one Solano was received for the

first reward. I received two. Did not think nothing about it since they were

normal type ships. Am I just lucky or did everyone else get two ships for

the first reward?

Just one Solano here.

So there's no clue about the missing ships, were they just left out of the game in 1.4? Or I just haven't found them yet? I'm talking about:
- OTAS Eurus (M4), Astraeus Hauler (M7), Sirokos (M7M) and Auster Hauler (M8 )
- Yaki Washi Hauler (M6), Akurei Hauler (M7), Kariudo Hauler (M7) and Senshi Hauler (M7M)
- ATF Woden (M1), Valhalla (M2), Tyr (M2) and Valkyrie (M5)

I've placed some AdvSats all over the Terran space (at least one per sector, usually they cover the majority of the sector) and failed to spot those ATF ships. Also, the Fenrir, Thor and Mjollnir are present only in Aldrin. IIRC some of them were in the battle in the Unknown Sector east of Zyarth's Dominion but now the sector is empty. I've placed sats in Yaki space too (I'm friendly with them so they don't blow them up) and no signs of the listed ships.

The Tyr M2 does exist. It moves about the Terran sectors with m6 & m7 escorts. As for the others I have yet to see them.
