Today the ladies and gentlemen from Anvil Aerospace shared some new information on the upcoming public release of the Hurricane.
To recap quickly, so far Anvil has let slip that the Hurricane is sacrificing survivability for raw fire power, and by using the tools of logic we can conclude that comfort too will not be a primary aim of the ship.
Now since earlier today we can confirm that it is indeed a two seater, meaning the number of expendable crew-hands needed to launch the ship doubled. They also informed us that it is classified as a 'heavy' fighter so we might expect this to be Anvils more aggressive rebuttal to the iconic Vanguard series. Being more aggressive then a vanguard means it will probably come with rabies preinstalled.
Last but not least we did manage to get a sneak peak at one of the ships, and even if only a quick glance at a fly buy there are a few note worthy observations to make.
We can clearly see a manned turret in the back. It looks distinctly different from the remote controlled turret of other Anvil ships such as the Super Hornet or the Hornet Wildfire leading to the conclusion that it will host the gunner directly.
The turret placement as well as the location of the main guns will probably mean that it possess a rear entrance and some kind of crew quarters perhaps even large enough to install a recliner, clearly raising the value of the ship.
Based on the weapon load out seen it seems the ship focuses on ballistic rather then energy weapons featuring two large main guns up front and two (or four) smaller ones on the turret in the back.
In addition to normal guns the Hurricane appears to feature under wing missiles given the ships size those seem to be smaller then what it's counterpart, the Warden can carry.
