The Anvil F8A Lightning is a heavy fighter that is used by the UEE Navy. It was designed as the next generation super space superiority fighter, particularly with fighting the Vanduul in mind, it is a more nimble, more heavily armed fighter craft than its F7 predecessor. The second turret is discarded for more fixed weaponry.

Currently, the F8A Lightning is unobtainable through purchase.,[1] but it will be obtainable in the PU, though it’ll be extremely rare.Template:RSI
