    Ships that size, good looking & with that much functionality will NOT be cheap by any means. My wallet is already aching at the thought of how expensive these will be & I'm praying that CIG won't repeat the LTI only on new currency purchases regardless of the fact that it is a concept sale.

    only issue... a gunship should not be carrying MOABs. I'll take a massive belly mounted ballistic cannon that can retract into the ship.

    I guess I found a way to move the tank I impulse purchased but the real question is how much beer can it deliver?

    the price is an assumption based on size.

    Wow. I can't see who manufactures it, but rounded surfaces looks could be MISC. I'm guessing $500-550, troop, equipment, and civilian cargo?

    BTW, the Hercules is the C-130 turboprop. The Starlifter is the C-141 turbojet. They again named after US inventory.

    Crusader, buddy. Genesis is the only other ship they do right now, but I could see them being an Origin competitor in terms of cool ships if their sci-fi looks keep this level of awesome up, though.

    Ala' AC-130??? :smile:

    Everything I have right now is all due to the skillset I gained working on C-130 gunships. Literally, my blood sweat and tears are on those planes and I love to brag about it! Pride is the keyword here. AC-130's and the HH-60's of Jolly Green. You can bet I'll be getting one of these!

    I'm thinking it's going to be priced similarly to the launch of the Polaris.

    Is this the flying saucer I've been waiting for Star Citizen to make for me?
    I could be convinced...

    I want one...but I don't have more than $200 to drop on the military variant. Yeah, I can always hope.

    The Hurc is nice but i'll be keeping hold of my Taurus - I still remember when they said the Connie was likely to be the biggest ship you could solo effectively and I value that.

    Doesn't mean i'm not entertaining the idea of getting a Hurc though ;)
