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.

F7C-M Super Hornet

The Anvil Aerospace F7C-M Super Hornet is the closest to the military load-out as is legally possible for a civilian model. It reattaches the ball turret and offers near mil-spec parts under the hood. Proving that two heads are better than one, a second seat has been added to split the logistic and combat duty, making the Super Hornet a truly terrifying mark to engage.[3]

F7A Hornet

The F7A Hornet, manufactured by Anvil Aerospace, has been the UEE Navy's primary military fighting craft for front-line attack combat missions for hundreds of years. It is the original Hornet that all other variants are based off. While not outfitted for long range runs, the Hornet can take her share of hits and dish out a consistent, powerful response. [8]

History

The first F7A Hornet came out in 2806 and replaced the Aegis Avenger as the standard medium fighter for the UEE.

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.[10]

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.[8]

Trivia

  • The F7A Hornet was originally featured in the Star Citizen Kickstarter trailer.[11]
  • At first the Hornet was to be a light fighter, but then after designs came back with it being heavily armed and beefy.[1]
  • The original F7A Hornet paid homage to the Hornet from Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg Wing Commander which was a light fighter the player started out in.[1]
