The C2 Hercules Starlifter is a civilian heavy transport manufactured by Crusader Industries. Utilizing the patented Hercules military-grade spaceframe and expanding cargo capacity, while sacrificing barely any firepower, the C2 has taken the private sector by storm. It has become the industry standard for racing teams, ship dealers and manufacturers, construction orgs, mining corporations, and even large-scale touring entertainment outfits.[1]

Features

Cargo
The C2 Hercules carries an impressive 696 SCU of cargo within its large hold. Ground vehicles may also be carried, including large vehicles like the Nova, Ballista and Spartan, using the large front and rear ramps for loading.
Equipment Stowage
The C2 has 672,000K μSCU of internal storage for personal equipment, six 3,000K μSCU storage units (along the center of engineering), as well as dedicated EVA suit lockers and gun racks in the bridge hallway. The center console in the bridge also houses a small compartment capable of holding 2 small firearms or equipment (such as the multi-tool).
Escape Pods
In the circumstance of your ship being close to having a catastrophic failure, Crusader has your back with a set of quick, safe and secure escape pods.
Easy Access Components
The ship components can be easily accessed from within the vehicle, allowing you to maintain or repair without the need to go outside the ship.
Living Areas
The Starlifter can be a home away from home, thanks to its spacious crew quarters with beds, bathrooms, personal areas and storage. The ship also has a separate crew rest room with seating, kitchen and even a large monitor for watching your favorite vids on the Spectrum.
Weapons
With a pair of forward facing pilot controlled size 5 gun hard-points, which can be discreetly concealed, and a rear facing remote controlled turret that can hold a pair of size 4 guns, the C2 can hit back hard if required.

Development

The Hercules was introduced in 2018-05-03 in the Around the Verse episode.[4] The ship concept is designed by Michael Oberschneider (Senior Conceptist) in Foundry 42 UK with contributions from Sarah McCulloch (Conceptist), Paul Jones (Art Director), Corentin Billemont (Systems Designer), John Crewe (Lead Technical Designer).[5]

Trivia

  • The term Starlifter was originally referred to Genesis Starlifter, a variant of the Genesis Starliner. According to the 2018-05-04 episode of Reverse the Verse, the Genesis Starlifter has been retconned and replaced by the Hercules Starlifter.[6]
  • Hercules is the first ship in the Star Citizen universe designed to transport tanks (such as the Nova).
