Model

Variants

  • F7A Hornet: The F7A Hornet is the Military version of the Hornet. It is currently not available for purchase.[2]
  • F7C Hornet: The F7C Hornet is the base model and the civilian version of the Hornet.[4]
  • F7C-R Hornet Tracker: The F7C-R Hornet Tracker is the scout version of the Hornet. It features a radar instead of a turret.[5]
  • F7C-M Super Hornet: The F7C-M Super Hornet has the closest possible loadout to F7A Hornet. It features an extra passenger seat and an advanced weapon loadout.[7]

Special editions

  • F7C Hornet Wildfire: Created as part of the Masters of Flight series in conjunction with the flight-sim Arena Commander, the Wildfire pays tribute to famed pilot Aria Reilly for her distinguished service with the legendary Squadron 42. This Hornet comes equipped with her own personally selected loadout preferences and a custom special edition livery honoring her iconic ship[8]

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.[9]
