Make versatility a reality with the 2948 Vulcan from Aegis Dynamics. A support ship redefining the three R’s to mean -- Refuel. Repair. Rearm.
Refuel stranded ships or top off those running dangerously low. Focused design from famed AEGIS engineer Parnell Rowan means the Vulcan is ready to work for you. Whether on a refueling run or hauling supplies in the rear cargo hold, the word that might best embody the Vulcan is resourceful.
Repair damaged ships without risking a spacewalk. The Vulcan comes standard with BARD drones and support stations to oversee repairs. Built in drone launchers makes their deployment possible even under stressful situations. Another tool on the Vulcan’s versatile utility belt.
Rearm others when needed most. Balancing fire power and protection, the Vulcan holds its own in a scrap. Countless UEE Navy pilots can attest to its capabilities, as the ship has been a battlefield staple for centuries.
Besides the pilot seat, the cockpit contains two support stations that allow crew members to control the Vulcan's drones, turrets and other support functions.
Conveniently located between the cockpit and drones, this area allows for easy access to the Vulcan’s own components.
Drones dock in launchers on both sides of the ship, which allows for their quick deployment to refuel, repair, or rearm.
External fuel tanks facilitate the refueling of ships in need of both hydrogen and quantum fuel.
Modest living quarters provide a crew with enough comforts to make life a little easier in the deep reaches of space.
The rear cargo hold can carry cargo or supplies to help ships in distress.
Each Vulcan comes standard with four BARD drones from Saga Datasystems, each capable of executing refuel, repair, or rearm operations.
The Vulcan is available in three distinct liveries symbolizing its core functions: the base model bears military green for rearm, hazard yellow represents repair, and CTR's distinct blue signifies refuel.
The Vulcan blends military and industrial design for a utilitarian look and feel. With enough room for three crew members, the ship provides the amenities needed for stints adrift in the great expanse without much pampering.
To celebrate the release of the 2948 Vulcan, Aegis Dynamics is partnering with the United Wayfarers Club. A trusted support company since the 25th century, the UWC has been maintaining a network of reliable service pilots capable of providing support for damaged ships in any number of environments and situations.
The Aegis Vulcan is being offered for the first time as a limited ship concept pledge. This means that the ship design meets our specifications, but it is not yet ready to display in your Hangar or to fly in Star Citizen. This pledge includes Lifetime Insurance on the ship hull. In the future, the ship price may increase and the offer may not include Lifetime Insurance or any extras.
If you are interested in adding one to your fleet, a quantity of Warbond Vulcan hulls are available during this event. The Vulcan will be available in the pledge store until April 2, 2018. You can also view a detailed schematic of this new ship in the Holo Viewer in the Tech Overview of the ship page.
As with every concept ship pledge, 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 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 ship will be entering the development pipeline now and may be released after other concept ships and vehicles have been completed. 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.
