Built for the Second Tevarin War, Tumbril's Nova heavy battle tank has enjoyed a long distinguished career of military service even after the company initially folded. A staple of the UEE Army and represented in over five hundred combat operations, Tumbril land systems is proud to announce that the Nova is back.
Drawing extensively from the original blueprints, Tumbril engineers have kept all the features that made the Nova such a memorable battlefield equalizer while capitalizing on all the technological advances of the past fifty years. The result? The same resilient and devastating battle tank that redefined ground warfare brought to the modern age.
The Tumbril Nova is being offered for the first time as a limited concept pledge. This means that the vehicle design meets our specifications, but it is not yet ready to display in your Hangar or to fight in Star Citizen. This pledge includes Lifetime Insurance on the vehicle hull and a decorative item for your Hangar. A future patch will add a poster flair item featuring the tank and once the in-game model is finished, you will also be given an in-game mini model! In the future, the vehicle price will increase and the offer will not include Lifetime Insurance or these extras.
If you are interested in adding one to your fleet, a quantity of War Bond Nova hulls are available for pledging during this event. Novas will be available in the pledge store until January 15th (or while supplies last). You can also view a detailed schematic of this new pledge vehicle in the Holo Viewer in the Tech Overview of the vehicle page.
As with every Concept Sale, we will also be doing a Q&A post. If you have additional questions, there will be a forum thread on Spectrum to take your questions. Make sure to vote for the questions you most want to see answered and we will be posting the dev’s responses next week. Look for the Comm-Link Schedule next week to find out when that post will go up.

Remember: we offer pledge ships and vehicles to help fund Star Citizen’s development. The funding received from events such as these are what allow us to include deeper features in the Star Citizen world. Concept ships and vehicles will be available for in-game credits in the final universe, and they are not required to start the game.
Additionally, please note that the Nova will be entering the development pipeline now and may be released after other concept ships and vehicles have been completed. The specifications in this post are preliminary and reflect the ship or vehicle concept’s current state in development; specifications may change during the 3D design and game balancing process. All decorative ‘flair’ items will also be available to acquire in the finished game world. The goal is to make additional ships and vehicles available that expand the depth and variety of the game world and give players a different experience rather than any particular advantage.
