The Icy is a Limited Event cruiser for the Christmas Event 2017 which is modeled after the Invictus. The Icy has a very similar interior and exterior to the Invictus; however, the Icy has an extra wing and 3 Medium Lasers instead of 4 Small Lasers. There are also many crystals on the Icy, similar to the Blizzard.
The Interior of the Icy contains long hallway, however the floor as a surface is slippery, hence the name Icy. There are crystals at the entrance and a row of chairs leading to the cockpit with what appears to be two screens.
