The 2951 edition of the Invictus Launch Week is held at Tobin Expo Center, microTech from May 21 till June 1, 2951.[1] Invictus Launch Week is a yearly recurring event organized by the United Empire of Earth Navy (UEEN) which marks the beginning of the new recruitment year.[2] It is an official holiday in the UEE.[3]

During the event there is:

  • In the weeks leading up to the start of the event, Cloud Imperium developers were continuously teasing with hints, such as a tweet with a picture of a Bengal cat in a carrying bag.[7] Fans concluded in the replies to the tweet that this meant we might be seeing a Bengal Carrier during the event.
