The Anvil Hurricane
Anvil Issues Storm Warning

Big Guns, Small Ship


“Unable to penetrate the enemy’s defenses, many of our best pilots were lost at the onset of the Second Tevarin War. So while the Hurricane was designed to kill, it saved many lives as well.” – Leona Patiga, Casse Aerospace Lead Engineer.

“If you’re looking to blast a target out of the solar system, the Hurricane gets the job done. Just don’t get caught flying solo.” – Commander Jackson Russell, UEE Navy (Ret.)

Meet the A4A Hurricane, a fighting spacecraft that packs a deadly punch into a slight fuselage. The spacecraft compensates for its lack of creature comforts with its powerful armament, boasting six guns capable of blasting their way through nearly anything. Hurricane pilots have yet to find an enemy shield they can’t knock down.

Be warned, this is not a ship for beginners. Mastering her unique ratio of heavy weapons with little armor requires a particular mix of marksman and dogfighter. Naval pilots serving with Hurricane squadrons have fallen in love with the exclusively offensive design; their peers’ constant refrain of ‘are you having a little ship with your guns?’ has served only to further distinguish the flights of “Six Shooters.” Standard model Hurricanes currently ship with six KBAR 11-Series Broadsword cannons (two gimbaled on the Size 4 nose hardpoints and four on the Size 3 turret slots) and four FSKI Ignite missiles for the Size 3 missile bay hardpoints.

First blooded against the Tevarin near the end of the Second War, Anvil resurrected the classic Hurricane in response to increased Vanduul attacks in the late 29th century. The fighter still serves with distinction in multiple branches of the UEE military and will become available for the civilian market for 2947.

About the Hurricane


What is the idea behind the Hurricane?

We see the Hurricane as a tool for pilots who are excellent at drawing a bead on a target while maintaining the situational awareness to avoid enemy fire… but those that prefer a ship that can take a pounding may find themselves fodder for interceptors! The aggressively designed Hurricane offers dogfighting-focused pilots a ship that relies strongly on firepower at the expense of armor.

When will the Hurricane be flight ready?

The Hurricane is currently scheduled to become flight-ready later this year. Because it is a smaller spacecraft, which uses the existing Anvil design aesthetic and dogfighting mechanics already tested in the Star Citizen Alpha, we expect it to come online earlier in the pipeline.

About the Sale

The Hurricane concept sale will run through Monday, March 6, 2017. Standard and warbond versions are available, as are two packs that include a small discount on other ship types in Anvil’s expanding line-up. The loaner ship for the Hurricane will be the Anvil F7C-M Super Hornet. Have questions about the design? You can post them to this thread on Spectrum. We will have two Q&A posts from the ship’s designers starting Wednesday, March 1st. And if you want to know more? Around the Verse will feature the Hurricane in an upcoming ‘Ship Shape’ segment.

The Hurricane is being offered for the first time as a limited concept sale. This means that the ship design meets our specifications, but it is not yet ready to display in your Hangar, fight in Arena Commander, or fly in the Alpha. The sale includes Lifetime Insurance on the ship hull and a pair of decorative items for your Hangar. A future patch will add a Hurricane poster and then, once the in-game model is finished, you will also be given an in-game Hurricane mini ship model! Once this deal expires, the ship price will increase and not include Lifetime Insurance or these extras.


The Anvil Hammer Pack

Anvil Aerospace is the UEE’s premiere military contractor and their line of combat and support ships just keeps expanding. This limited package includes a Carrack explorer, a Crucible repair ship and four hard-fighting military designs: the Super Hornet, Gladiator, Terrapin and Hurricane.

The Tortoise and the Hurricane

Arms, meet armor! There are pilots who want extra protection and then there are pilots who want to go in with guns blazing. This limited pack lets you do both by including both a heavily armored Anvil Terrapin and a heavily armed Anvil Hurricane.

Disclaimer

Remember: we are offering this pledge ship to help fund Star Citizen’s development. The funding generated by sales such as this is what allows us to include deeper, non-combat oriented features in the Star Citizen world. Concept ships will be available for in-game credits in the final universe, and they are not required to start the game. The goal is to make additional ships available that give players a different experience rather than a particular advantage when the persistent universe launches. Additionally, please note that all decorative ‘flare’ items will also be available to acquire in the finished game world.
