Star Citizen Hurricane – New heavy fighter

Has our demand for more dakka found its answer? The new heavy fighter was revealed on Friday, it is the Anvil Hurricane! A small ship that packs a big punch! Described as a glass cannon, it delivers what the description implies. Weighing in at  15,500kg, it is 7000kg lighter than the Super Hornet. This metric confused many at most because it is not heavy at all and is actually smaller in length as you can see by this side by side comparison: The heavy part of this fighter comes from the impressive weaponry that has been bolted onto the manned […]

Yesterday, October 16, 2016, marked a thirteen year anniversary which, in spite of my best intentions, I vividly recall each and every year. On October 16th, 2003 in Karbala, Iraq, three members of my first United States Army unit were killed in action. Their names were Corporal Sean Grilley, Staff Sergeant Joseph Bellavia, and Lieutenant Colonel Kim Orlando. These wasn’t the first deaths in Iraq I faced, nor would they be the last.
