The Anvil C8 Pisces Expedition is a special variant of the C8 Pisces. It is a standalone snub scout ship that is meant to be used with the Carrack. It can be stored inside the Carrack and can be launched from its hangar bay.

The ship is meant for scouting, reconnaissance and exploring environments inaccessible to the Carrack. Apart from the pilot seat, it also features two additional jump seats for extra passengers. It also contains space for 4 SCU of cargo.[1] Additionally, while it doesn't come equipped with one standard, the ship can also be equipped with a Jump Module.[2]

"Enhancing the standard C8 explorer with added firepower and a limited-edition livery, the C8X Expedition turns a stout snub into a capable stand-alone vessel, ideal for exploring tight spots and unique environments inaccessible to larger ships. Its convertible cargo hold adds to the versatility, with room for two passengers."
[3]

The C8X variant is recognizable by its slightly whiter paint job than the standard C8 Pisces, and it has four weapon hardpoints instead of two.[4] During the 2949 Intergalactic Aerospace Expo it was made available on the pledge store for $45 USD.
