The Aegis Avenger Stalker is a civillian light fighter that is popular among bounty hunters. It was initially the frontline carrier ship for the UEE military, then it had a long and storied career as the standard patrol craft of the UEE Advocacy. Utilizing its cargo hold for prisoner transport, the Avenger features a sturdy, reliable hull and the capacity for larger-than-expected engine mounts.[1]

History

The Avenger began its life serving dutifully as the premiere front-line carrier plane of the late 28th century. Avengers racked up a number of impressive space-to-space victories in that era, but were ultimately supplanted by more maneuverable designs like the Hornet. With space combat focusing more on skilled maneuvering than pure weapons storage, the Avenger fell out of active duty with the military and was repurposed as the standard ship for Advocacy and local law enforcement. Today, the military will still use Avengers as trainers; the two-seat variant is a forgiving first spacecraft for new pilots.

The current civilian model Avenger is marketed towards bounty hunters, with the second seat removed for direct access to the hold. Munitions storage has also been replaced with traditional cargo hooks, and the standard exterior flight line ladder entry system has been replaced with an internalized solution that allows the pilot to more easily maintain control of access (and egress).[2]

Model

Variants

  • Avenger Titan: The light cargo variant of the Avenger. It trades the prisoner holding cells of the Avenger Stalker for increased cargo capacity.
  • Avenger Warlock: The EMP warfare variant. It sacrifices all of its cargo space for an EMP generator in its trunk which can be used to shut down ship shields and components in a large area.
  • Avenger Trainer: The UEE military trainer variant of the Avenger. The cockpit is modified into two seats for pilot training purposes.

Special editions

  • Avenger Titan Renegade: A dogfighting variant of the Titan as part of the Masters of Flight series, the Renegade pays tribute to famed pilot Danny Solomon for his notable work with the Advocacy to bring justice to Bremen. This Avenger Titan comes equipped with a specialized dogfighting focused loadout and a custom special edition livery honoring this iconic ship. [3]

Development

The Avenger Stalker is the 14th player ship introduced in Star Citizen.[4] The concept of the ship is designed by Nathan Dearsley (Freelance Concept Artist).[5] In 2017-07, the Avenger series went through a cockpit rework accompanying the Item 2.0 system. Before Item 2.0, players are not able to access the cockpit through the canopy ladder as it is not possible to have multiple actions attached to the pilot seat. With the rework, players can access the pilot seat through both the interior door and the exterior ladder. The rework went live in Star Citizen Alpha 3.0.0.[6] In 2017-12, during the Holiday Special 2017, CIG announced that the Avenger series will undergo another rework to increase its size.[7] In 2018-06-30, with the release of Star Citizen Alpha 3.2.0, the reworked ship became Flight Ready.[8]
