Gamescom Flash Sale
For the duration of the Gamescom presentation the following ships are in the Pledge Store:
The Retaliator is one of Star Citizen’s premier multi-crew fighting ships! While crewed ships are not uncommon in the ‘verse, the larger options tend to be oriented more towards transport and exploration than fighting. The Retaliator is a fighting bomber covered in turrets which carries a heavy bomb load; the perfect thing for striking at enemy bases and capital ships! It’s also an extremely modular ship. The asset has been created with customization in mind, and entire hull segments can be swapped out: players will eventually be able to replace their bomb bay with entirely different configurations for different roles (imagine swapping in some quarters, or a cargo area.)
The Anvil Carrack features reinforced fuel tanks for long-duration flight, an advanced jump drive, and a dedicated computer core for jump charting operations. Originally a military exclusive, the Carrack is now available for civilian use. On-board accommodations include crew medical and repair facilities, and a mapping-oriented sensor suite.
Drake maintains that the Caterpillar, a sprawling, modular spacecraft which appears at least somewhat like its namesake, is for legitimate commerce and extended search and rescue missions… but at the end of the day, the Caterpillar has earned a reputation as the evil twin of the Freelancer.
Roberts Space Industries’ goal has always been to make the stars available to individual Citizens. Now, with the RSI Orion mining platform, RSI is letting individuals take over a process formerly controlled by mega-corporations. The Orion’s features include high-grade turret-mounted tractor beam arrays, plenty of mineral storage and a cabin designed by the team that brought you the Aurora and Constellation!
The Aegis Reclaimer is an industrial salvage ship. Equipped with a reinforced cargo bay, a long-range jump drive and launch pods for unmanned drones, the Reclaimer is an ideal ship for taking advantage of deep space wrecks. Tractor beams, floodlights, scanner options and docking ports round out the tools on this capable, utilitarian spacecraft.
Aopoa Khartu-al (Xi’an Scout)
The Xi’An Aopoa corporation manufactures an export model of the Qhire Khartu, the Khartu-al, for sale to Human civilians as a dedicated scout/explorer. The export model features the same Xi’An maneuvering rig, but control surfaces modified for Human use and a more limited armament.
Banu traders are renowned for their merchant prowess, traveling the spacelanes and trading with everyone from Humans to the Vanduul! Their sturdy, dedicated trading ships are prized beyond all other transports, sometimes passing from generation to generation of Banu.
