The Crusader C2 Hercules or Hercules Starlifter is a civilian heavy transport. Utilizing the patented Hercules military-grade spaceframe and expanding cargo capacity, while sacrificing barely any firepower, the C2 has taken the private sector by storm. It has become the industry standard for racing teams, ship dealers and manufacturers, construction orgs, mining corporations, and even large-scale touring entertainment outfits.[1]

Development

The Hercules was introduced in 2018-05-03 in the Around the Verse episode.[2] The ship concept is designed by Michael Oberschneider (Senior Concept Artist) in Foundry 42 UK with contributions from Sarah McCulloch (Concept Artist), Paul Jones (Art Director), Corentin Billemont (Systems Designer), John Crewe (Lead Technical Designer).[3]

Trivia

  • The term Starlifter was originally referred to Genesis Starlifter, a variant of the Genesis Starliner. According to the 2018-05-04 episode of Reverse the Verse, the Genesis Starlifter has been superseded by the Hercules Starlifter.[4]
  • Hercules is the first ship in the Star Citizen universe designed to transport tanks (such as the Nova).
