The Anvil A4A Hurricane is a fighting spacecraft that packs a deadly punch into a slight fuselage. The spacecraft compensates for its lack of creature comforts with its powerful armament: six ballistic guns capable of blasting their way through nearly anything. Hurricane pilots have yet to find an enemy shield they can't knock down.[1]

Features

La Hurricane è veloce, ma non agile, ed è progettata per lanciarsi nelle zone minacciate prima di ritirarsi e riorganizzarsi. E' una nave a corto e medio raggio, simile alla Gladius. E' stata progettata per lavorare con altri caccia e navi di supporto, piuttosto che per i pattugliamenti a lungo raggio. Un piccolo generatore di energia, l'assenza di spazio cargo e scudi e scafo deboli enfatizzano il suo ruolo di nave di attacco fragile: fa affidamento sulla velocità pura dei suoi motori ed sulla potenza dirompente delle sue armi per proteggersi.

La Hurricane è dotata di una potente torretta a quadruplo cannone situata al centro della nave che permette all'artigliere di supportare il pilota con un fuoco preciso, oltre che con altre funzionalità multi-equipaggio come il radar e l'aggancio dei missili, lasciando al pilota la libertà di concentrarsi sul manovrare questa fragile nave. Sia il pilota che l'artigliere disporranno di sedili eiettabili per proteggere sé stessi dall'eventualità in cui la nave venga danneggatia in maniera critica.[2]

Tactics

La Hurricane è stata progettata come un caccia "Attacco e Fuga": deve scaricare sull'obiettivo tutto il suo arsenale prima di allontanarsi ad alta velocità per riarmarsi, ricaricare ed evitare il fuoco di risposta. In gruppo, la Hurricane preferisce una strategia fatta di ondate di passaggi di attacco successivi, così che il contrattacco si ritrovi a dover fronteggiare il fuoco incrociato di più Hurricane. [2]

Le armi ballistiche costituiranno con ogni probabilità l'equipaggiamento primario della Hurricane; semplicemente, non dispone di potenza sufficiente a mantenere delle energy weapons in aggiunta ai suoi scudi e propulsori. I missili completano il suo equipaggiamento standard e possono essere utilizzati per finire una nave incapacitata dal primo passaggio di mitragliamento.

History

Origini

File.svg Main article: Casse Aerospace#Hurricane 

The Hurricane was originally developed in 2607, during the Second Tevarin War, by Casse Aerospace. It was specifically designed to destroy Tevarin ships as quickly as possible the moment their phalanx shields failed. The Casse Hurricane suffered some setbacks during the testing phase. Though pilots liked the power-to-weight ratio and the extra punch its quad-turret offered, the high degree of coordination needed between the pilot and gunner had a very steep learning curve. Because of this, the Hurricane didn’t enter active combat until 2609. While they were used to devastating effect in a few instrumental actions, the war ended shortly after their deployment in 2610. Although it was effective during the war, it soon fell out of favor and was quickly decommissioned after 2615. [3][4]

Risviluppo

During the second major Vanduul incursion in 2871, a UEE report showed that the longer a human pilot was engaged in combat with the Vanduul, the less likely they were to survive. In response, the UEE Navy requested new concepts for an alpha strike fighter that had enough "focused firepower" to quickly destroy Vanduul fighters. Anvil Aerospace redeveloped the aging Hurricane design in order to quickly produce a fighter that the Navy needed. The updated design still bore all the hallmarks of Casse’s original, but with the addition of Anvil’s proven conflict expertise. The result was a game changer for the war effort, and in 2878 new wings of Hurricane were being deployed by the Navy on the front-lines.[4]

Durante la The Fall of Caliban, la Hurricane mostrò di essere particolarmente efficace nel ripulire gli squadroni di caccia Vanduul, permettendo così a molti convogli civili di evacuare in sicurezza dalla sistema Caliban. Il suo successo contro i Vanduul la rese un componente chiave sia per la Marina UEE che per le flotte dei Marine. [3]

Utilizzo Pirata

Sebbene la Hurricane sia stata prodotta esclusivamente per l'Esercito UEE fino al 2947, diversi gruppi pirati le hanno rubate fin dai tempi della riprogettazione Anvil. Furono utilizzate principalmente dai Argul Dawn e dal Otoni Syndicate per tendere delle efficaci imboscate e disabilitare i convogli cargo. Gli Argul Dawn erano così efficienti con i loro squadroni di Hurricane che la Advocacy lanciò diversi assalti ad alto rischio contro i loro quartier generali a Echo Eleven. [3]

Rilascio Civile

Sebbene sia uno dei design di astronavi più vecchi ancora in volo, Anvil lo introdusse nel mercato civile nel 2947.

Development

Early concept sketches of the Hurricane

Originally the Hurricane was an option in the poll for the third starter ship[5] but it lost to the Reliant. The concept was subsequently changed to a heavier fighter that offers dogfighting-focused pilots a ship that relies strongly on firepower at the expense of armor. The Hurricane's concept is designed by Justin Wentz (Concept Artist), and Paul Jones (Art Director).[2][6][7] It was officically revealed in 2017-02-25 in the RSInotext.svg Anvil Hurricane concept sale. In 2018-06-30, with the release of Star Citizen Alpha 3.2.0, the ship became Flight Ready.[8]

Design brief

Comparison between the shapes of Hurricane concept and Hornet, Gladiator, and F8 Lightning
Aims
  • Heavy hitting support role — very vulnerable alone, very dangerous in groups.
Aesthetic
  • A taller, thinner Hornet — the Hurricane is a bullet delivery service
  • Barely armored
