The Anvil Aerospace F7C Hornet is the civilian version of the classic F7A Hornet, the carrier-based medium fighter utilized by UEE Navy. It is a multi-purpose fighter and is heavily redesigned to fit non-military components. The F7A's iconic center turret has been taken out and replaced by a cargo hold with a capacity of 2SCU.[1]

Features

Weapons
While the F7C is a civilian variant of the F7A, it can still pack a punch with its three Size 3 gun hard-points and two missiles racks that hold a pair of Size 1 and Size 2 missiles each.
Cargo
This variant replaces the central turret with a Stor-All 'Big Box' (model H) that can carry 2 SCUs of cargo.
Modularity
Even though the F7C comes with a cargo hold as standard, this can be swapped out for other options like the Broad & Rabiee C4-160F gun turret for example.

Lore

The F7C Hornet is the first civilian ship produced by Anvil Aerospace. Due to the UEE military secrecy laws, that 60% of the military hardware in a given spacecraft cannot be offered to the civilians, Anvil has to replacing existing systems without being given access to their military equivalents. In some cases, designers must reconstruct subsystems based solely on publicly available holographs. Civilianizing top-of-the-line military spacecraft is a frustrating process, but one that has proved ultimately valuable for Anvil: company profits rose 34% after the first civilian model F7C Hornet was made available.[7]

Trivia

  • The first Hornet for Star Citizen started out its life in a very different shape as part of a Wing Commander pitch[8]
