Crusader Mercury

A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM THE ADVOCACY
VIOLENT CRIMINALS STILL AT LARGE
STAY ALERT

Two of the Empire's most wanted, Alexandria Dougan and Mas Houlan, are presumed to be hiding in the Banu Protectorate, most likely somewhere within Bacchus, or a connecting system.

Wanted across various systems for crimes including illegal data running, intergalactic smuggling of contraband, possession and transportation of class 9 hazardous material, resisting arrest, espionage, assault and battery of law enforcement, insurance fraud, drunk and disorderly, and public urination. They should be considered dangerous and should not be engaged under any circumstances.

Dougan is female, Human, medium height, and slight build, brunette hair. She is thought to be in her late twenties. A savant pilot and incorrigible scofflaw.

Houlan is male, Banu, tall with an average build. He is a talented hacker wanted in several UEE and Xi'an systems. He has escaped Bremen Militia custody at least twice.

DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTICS

Field Report

Easily identified by the unique white design painted on its hull and the stylized "eye" painted on it's main hatch.
Favored by the duo for its potent combination of firepower, speed, and maneuverability, the "Duck" has become nearly synonymous with their exploits.

The Mercury's proclivity to data running, its built-in onboard encryption protocal, and any number of home-brewed booby traps, make successful extraction and seizure difficult by design.

ASSESSMENT

Engage ship at your own risk.

Defense:
twin size 2 shield generators, full compliment of countermeasures
Weapons:
two size 3 hardpoint gimbals out front, 2 manned turrets up top/down below
Missiles:
dual size 2 missile pylons - proceed with caution!

JUST THE FACTS

Despite the way some less savory types have employed it, the Mercury was designed with the good guys in mind. Want to know more about Crusader's elusive star runner chassis? Read on...

ABOUT THE SHIP CONCEPT PLEDGE

The Crusader Mercury 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. The Warbond pledges shown here include Lifetime Insurance on the ship hull. In the future, the ship price may increase and Lifetime Insurance or any extras may not be available.

If you are interested in adding one to your fleet, a quantity of Warbond Mercury hulls are available during this event. The Mercury Star Runner will be available in the pledge store until September 18th, 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.

For more details visit the complete Mercury ship page.

DISCLAIMER

Remember: we offer pledge ships 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 obtainable in the final universe, and they are not required to start the game.

Additionally, please note that the Mercury will be entering the ship pipeline now and may be released after other concept ships have been completed. The goal is to make additional ships available to continue expanding the depth and variety of the game world and give players a different experience rather than any particular advantage.

Get it there fast, get it there safe. Every time.

Speed, safety, and rugged reliability. The Mercury Star Runner is your delivery solution.
