The hit-and-run icon, remastered for the modern age
The history books are filled with accounts from the Tevarin wars of the uniquely effective attack methods and formations employed by Talon pilots - near-synchronous strikes, maximizing each attacker’s strength as part of a greater combined assault. The Talon was the linchpin of this surgically precise mayhem. Esperia has resurrected this infamous hit-and-run icon for the modern era.
The Talon represents Esperia's continuing effort to preserve historically significant Tevarin ship designs, as well as update them for practical Human use. Utilizing the close consultation of both Tevarin and Human pilots and historians, we offer an unparalleled level of authenticity, faithful to the last detail.
Inspired by the original Tevarin "phalanx" shields, the Talon is equipped with proprietary focused shield generators, providing ample coverage and unprejudiced projectile deterrence. When deployed in force, frontline ships outfitted with these shields can provide crucial cover for following waves of ships and troops.
Borne out of a culture of fighters, the Esperia Talon, just like the original, is built for battle. And anyone who's logged hours behind the stick of a fighter can attest that combat is anything but predictable. The cockpit's ability to launch as an escape pod encapsulates the Tevarin spirit of never backing down from a fight.
Developed during the Second Tevarin War with a modified, missile-focused offensive configuration, and reimagined for modern Human use here at Esperia, the infamous Shrike variant model is armed with an authentic internal missile racks capable of unleashing lethal barrages of projectiles that add a devastating lethality to hit-and-run tactics.
Exclusive Offer: Every Warbond Talon comes with the new Aves armor, Aves helmet, and lifetime in-game ship insurance for free. Armor arrives with the Talon in December.
The Esperia Talon and its variants are being offered for the first time as a limited vehicle concept pledge. This means that the vehicle is in development but it is not yet ready to display in your Hangar or to fly in Star Citizen. It will be available as playable content in a later patch. The Warbond pledges shown here include Lifetime Insurance on the vehicle hull. In the future, the vehicle price may increase and Lifetime Insurance or any extras may not be available. If you pledge towards a Talon or variant, you will also receive a loaner vehicle for use in Star Citizen until such time as the Talon is included in-game. This loaner vehicle will be a currently playable vehicle of similar approximate size and/or function to the Talon.
