Mustang from Consolidated Outland

Hello Citizens and Civilians, and welcome to Nuggets for Nuggets. This is our section of the show where we delve into the mechanics of Star Citizen and give you the gory details from the inside out.  Fair warning: the game is still in active development, so all the information given is subject to change. This week, well, you’ve seen it’s progress on The Next Great Starship, but here’s everything that you need to know about the Mustang from Consolidated Outland.

The new Mustang spacecraft line is preparing to go into mass production is priced to compete with Roberts Space Industries’ Aurora. Using newly-developed construction techniques and ultralight material alloys sometimes considered unsafe, the Mustang pushes power ratios to the limit. The result is a sleek, stylish spacecraft that weighs less than the Aurora and has more options for engines and thrusters… at the expense of some stability, weapons hardpoints and cargo capacity.

Like the Aurora, the Mustang is also a single-seat fighter, so unfortunately your buddies won’t be along for the ride with you, but as a single-seater fighter the Mustang will come with 2xTR2 Primary Thrusters, 6xTR1 Maneuvering Thrusters and a maximum of a Size 3 power-plant — perfect for her role as pursuit!

Capable of equipping 2x Class 1 weapons and 1x Class 4, better known as 2x fixed guns and 1x turret, so she’s not quite as well equipped as the Aurora, however she can deliver a nasty sting where it hurts. Unfortunately all the trade-off has made her fragile, being only able to equip a shield with a max rating of 2.

Unfortunately right now we don’t have any details on the length or height, but as the Mustang is comparable to the Aurora you can expect her to weigh-in somewhere around the 18.5m long and 4m high mark, and able to carry up to 5 tonnes of cargo. The details on how many upgrade slots the Mustang will come with are still being worked out, but you can be sure that we’ll update you as soon as we know the information ourselves.

So, what’s in a name? Well a ‘nugget’, as well as being a small, bite-sized piece of information is also the name for a trainee pilot. Nuggets for Nuggets is a weekly section of the show where we delve into the mechanics of Star Citizen and give you the gory details from the inside out. As the game is still in active development, all the information given is subject to change but we will revisit sections in the future to bring you up to speed.
