Fireware v12.6.x is based on Linux kernel 4.14. On some Firebox models, Linux kernel 4.14
does not provide sufficient quality and performance. Because of this, Fireware v12.6.x is not
currently available for Firebox T10, T15, T30, T35, T55, T70, M200, and M300. We are
continuing to work to bring all models to a common kernel in a future release. For more
information, see this Knowledge Base article.
