Development

Concept art for "Vehicle 2"

Railen was originally announced at CitizenCon 2019 under the provisional name Vehicle 2. It was planned as a multicrew cargo ship of Xi'an origin, and expected to have similar dimensions to Hull B or Freelancer MAX.[3] The ship was hinted on the Gatac Manufacture article on Galactapedia after its update on May 25, 2021.[4] On June 10th, 2021, the name Railen was first revealed in the Inside Star Citizen tease on the official Instagram.[5] On the next day, it is available for pledge for Concierge backers.[6]

The key contributors of the concept include: John Crewe and Adam Parkers as system designers, Michael Oberschneider as concept artist, and Paul Jones as art director.[7]
