The Origin M50 is HERE! The galaxy’s premiere dedicated racer, the M50 packs a lot of thrust into a small package. It’s the ship dedicating racing fans are betting can take home the next Murray Cup… and it’s compact frame and powerful engines also make it a great courier or interceptor! If you need to be somewhere in a hurry (or get out of a jam quickly) then the M50 is the ship for you.
Featuring supercharged engines (Hammer Propulsion) that counter a tiny weapons loadout, and a new flashy automotive paint job, the M50 is a ship for going FAST. The core spaceframe is used by both racing teams and for military courier missions, but the M50 is a luxury spacecraft like no other. Perfect for the mercenary who prefers speed over armor in a dogfight… or the weekend warrior looking to impress the ladies.
The M50 is officially ‘hangar ready’ in Star Citizen and will now appear alongside any other ships you own. If you purchased an M50 during Star Citizen’s initial campaign, it will now be visible in your hangar. If you’d like to add one to your fleet, they’re available again in the pledge store for the next seven days (ending Friday, August 8, 2014.) You can also view a detail of the M50 in the Holo Viewer in the Tech Overview of the ship page!
