Development

The Vanguard is the promised twin-engine deep space fighter of the 60 million stretch goal. It is originally known as Bulldog. The concept was inspired by the twin-engine aircraft of World War II, like the Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg de Havilland Mosquito and the Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg Messerschmitt 110.[2]

The Hoplite was not a part of the initial three variants of the Vanguard series,[3] it was created due to the requirement of a dropship in Squadron 42. With the expanded interior to house drop team, the exterior hull is expanded compared to the other variants.[citation needed ]
