Development

  • The original F7A Hornet was created by CGBot and it was used in the first pitch video of Star Citizen in the Kickstarter campaign in 2012. Because F7A will be featured in Squadron 42 as a hero ship, in 2016, CIG decided to update the F7A Hornet to current standard since its mesh is still the old CGBot model.
  • The F7A Hornet Mk II is designed by Chris Smith (Lead Vehicle Artist) in CIG Austin. The idea was to keep the original Hornet F7 MK1 series in the game and then add the F7A MK2 model, modelled completely new from the ground up with the latest techniques and pipeline procedures in 2016, as Chris Roberts thought it would be cool to have the classic Hornet and the new version run side by side, and players would have the opportunity to keep the old MK1 as a classic collectors item.[3]
