If you were like me while watching the Star Citizen PAX Australia livestream last weekend then a fair portion of your time would have been spent screaming at the screen to come back online. After a slight wait, Cloud Imperium Games have finally uploaded the full 55 minute livestream onto Youtube, which can be found above.
It should not come as a surprise considering the number of new ships they have had up for sale but Star Citizen has passed its $60 Million stretch goal, with $60,524,342 raised as of this point. This means that work on the Aegis Bulldog-class Twin-Engine Deep Space Fighter can start. More information on the ship can be found below:
Strike hard from a distance! The Bulldog, a recent design from Aegis, has quickly become Earth’s premier deep space fighter. Deep space fighters are typically used to pursue engagements in outlying areas when support from a carrier is not available. Bulldogs are usually flown by ground- and station-based naval forces, and are widely used by militia squadrons. Specifically designed to operate from planetary bases and engage targets up to a star system’s distance, the fighter trades some maneuverability for an extended supply of fuel and munitions as well as basic survival accommodations for a pilot and radar operator. The Bulldog’s RIO operates a turret, the ship’s missile loadout (optionally) and its highly advanced sensor suite. This distinct scanning array gives the ‘Dog a particular advantage when fighting in and around an obstacle such as an asteroid field or nebula! Finally, the Bulldog is known to be an extraordinarily sturdy spacecraft, with multiple backup systems not commonly found in single-seat ships; stories of Bulldogs limping back to base with a single engine and half their fuselage exposed to vacuum have become common as the battle against the Vanduul has heated up.
