The RSI Bengal-class carrier is one of the biggest and strongest UEE ships. The iconic Bengal is one of the most powerful warships available to the UEE Navy and its imposing presence has held off raiders and the Vanduul throughout the outer colonies, allowing humanity to spread unchallenged.

Bengals carry multiple squadrons of fighters, bombers and support craft. Their massive armaments and extremely heavy shielding make it nearly impossible for any individual craft to threaten them. Only a combined effort could ever hope to destroy or capture one.[1]

Development

The initial concept of Bengal is designed by Ryan Church (Freelance Concept Artist) in 2013, and then handed off to a crew of artists (including Sergio Rosas) at CGBot.[5]

Trivia

  • Bengal is the first capital ship shown in Star Citizen back in the original Kickstarter campaign.[6]
  • Seven artists are on board for it's construction and development since the time of R&D.[7]
  • An Idris can be fit in the hangar of the Bengal practically, but can't fly it in.[7]
  • Traditionally, Bengal-class carriers are named after big cats.[8]
