The Anvil Ballista: A Mobile Air Defense System from Anvil Aerospace

Image by : Cloud Imperium Games Corporation &
Roberts Space Industries Corp.

03 August 2019

Star Citizen recently unveiled the new Anvil Ballista, a mobile air defense system. Capable of locking on to incoming enemy ships or ground targets and crushing them with some serious firepower.

Following the launch of the Anvil Ballista, RSI recently took the top community-voted questions to designers, Anvil Aerospace, for some more information about the air defense system.

Q&A

The sale post mentions “ground targets”. Will this vehicle have any ground bombardment or parabolic firing mode to shoot over hills? Will it require line-of-sight to lock-on to ground targets?

Currently, all targets (whether air or ground) require both a high enough signature and line-of-sight for the Ballista to be able to lock on to them. In the future, we’ll include out-of-sight targeting by transmitting target data between ships or via some sort of ‘forward operator control’. This will enable players to hit targets without a direct line-of-sight and from a much greater distance than is currently possible.

Does the Ballista have any planned modularity? Swapping out the back section for a medical, exploration, or cargo variant would make it a great general ‘rover’ and one that could be used with the Carrack.

At this time, no future variants are planned for production, although we’ve seen some fantastic community suggestions. The rover that comes with the Anvil Carrack is an RSI Ursa Rover, not a new Anvil Rover.

How will restocking ammo work? Do we need to bring it to a landing pad, or will there be future resupplying ships and ground vehicles? Will the Vulcan be able to repair and rearm the Ballista?

Currently, the Ballista needs to be taken back to an outpost, where it can be repaired and rearmed. In the future, dedicated rearming and repair vehicles (such as the Vulcan) can be used to support any ground vehicle, including the Ballista.

Image by : Cloud Imperium Games Corporation &
Roberts Space Industries Corp.
Isn’t a range of 2000 meters too short for an anti-aircraft vehicle?

The Jump Point article and brochure were completed before we had confirmed its maximum range. At this time, its effective range is 10,000 meters against most fighters (the furthest we’ve shot is 9,984 meters), after which it can no longer identify them.
However, the firing range doesn’t have a cap as it’s purely by the systemic emissions of the target, so it will be even further on large ships with high infrared or electromagnetic signatures.

Which ships will be able to transport the Ballista? Will a mechanic be in place to cable-lift them with, for example, the ARGO MPUV or using a tractor beam (kind of like how tanks can be transported via helicopter)?

As it stands, there are only two ship series specifically designed to transport the Ballista – the Idris and the Hercules (by transport, we mean getting it entirely inside the vehicle, properly secured, and doors closed). While not officially designed to carry the Ballista, the 890 Jump’s rear cargo ramp is large enough to take it too. Ships equipped with a suitably powerful tractor beam will also be able to move it, but this comes with a higher risk than having it secured internally.

Besides the included 2 x S2 guns on the turret, the stats page also lists an “optional” S2 turret. What does that mean? Another turret? More guns?

This is an error in the stats page that will be resolved – the optional turret mentioned is the default-equipped turret.

What kind of equipment can the Ballista carry besides the missile launcher? Will we be able to mount different sizes and types of missiles like 16 x S5 missiles, 4 x S7 torpedoes, 2 x S8 torpedoes, or 2 x S8 gun turrets?

At this time, there are no plans to allow any modification to the turret loadout or to what type of turret it has equipped. Everything is quite bespoke to the vehicle in its current layout and the only customisability is in the missile loadouts themselves.

Image by : Cloud Imperium Games Corporation &
Roberts Space Industries Corp.
Could you explain how CIG plans to balance air vs ground? Both how you see various classes of ship and vehicle performing against each other and how you plan to achieve that balance when ground vehicles size up poorly in direct comparison due to their limited mobility and smaller equipment.

This is a very good question, though one that deserves more attention than is possible here. We’ll be discussing air vs ground combat in more detail in the future.

Will the skins be purchasable separately? I have the ‘Snowblind’ skin but like the others as well. However, I don’t want to buy another vehicle.

The skins are unique to Warbond SKUs. Concierge members get access to the Dunestalker Skin and all backers get access to the Snowblind skin. These-limited time offerings will not be able to be pledged for separately.

I know the Ballista has to be parked in order to fire the torpedoes, but will the gunner seat (the one that fires the missiles right now) eventually be able to swap between the torpedoes and S2 Gatling gun and fire it while the vehicle is moving? That doesn’t seem overpowered and could come in extremely handy (and seems common sense).

There is no plan for this at this moment. The person manning the missile turret (or gunner seat) has very specific control over that turret only. The driver of the vehicle can drive around and fire the Gatling turret if they choose to.

The Ballista page states that the missile artillery can be used on ground targets, but can the missiles ‘free-fire’ on land without a specific target? Like targeting the general vicinity of a patch of land?

All missiles in the game currently require a target lock. We don’t have any plans for missile free-fire, but it may be something more suited to less “smart” ordnance in the future.

Will the Ballista be able to intercept other missiles, such as S9 torpedoes from a bomber or the Hercules’ A2 bombs?

This is functionality that we want all ships to have in the future, not just the Ballista. Being able to target incoming ordnance items is critical to keeping larger ships and ground outposts intact. Of course, targeting is just part of the equation; it certainly helps to pick a suitable weapon system for the intercept.

The Ballista can only fire while stationary, but what if it’s stationary aboard a moving ship? For example, on a Starlifter, Kraken, or Idris?

The Ballista will still fire aboard a moving Starlifter or Idris, though we’re not sure launching missiles inside a moving ship is the safest thing to do! As for the Kraken, there’s no reason why you couldn’t fire missiles from a landing pad. However, the chance of hitting a friendly ship or part of the carrier could be quite high, particularly if it’s moving.

Roberts Space Industries Corp.

We anticipate there will be more information revealed at the upcoming CitizenCon 2949 happening November 23, 2019 in Manchester, England. We will bring you all the latest news from CitizenCon as it happens, so be sure to check back and remember to always keep your gaming set to MAX!

Star Citizen Announces a New Quarterly series: Pillar Talk

15 June 2019

On June 14th Star Citizen released the first episode of Pillar Talk. A new quarterly video series to discuss new updates and new features coming to the Star Citizen Universe. In the premiere, Chris Roberts sits down with Tony Zurovec, John Crew, and Eric Kieron Davis for an in-depth discussion of the features coming in Alpha 3.6.

Check out the video below:

Some Alpha 3.6 features:

Law System V1 –

Law System V1 adds greater depth to the current law system. As of now there are 19 Laws in the books including murder, possession of stolen goods and transportation of illicit products to name a few. With the current system, when you buy something, you own that something. If another player blows up your ship or sneaks on and takes the goods there is little to no repercussions. They could take the goods and sell them and get full price.

With 3.6 now when you buy something, unless you grant it to someone else, if another player has possession of it they will be limited with what they can do with it. You can not go to a law abiding shop and just unload all of your stolen cargo. You now need to go to salvage yards or fences. The prices you will get on said stolen goods will be a fraction of what you would get if you owned the items.

You will also have to deal with security agents you come accross in your travels. Players will need to decide if the goods are worth stealing, and if caught does one run or pay the fine. Decide to run and more reinforcements, interceptors etc. will be called in. In the next few updates the plan is to have a prison colony where you will be put if you are captured.

Ships and Vehicles –
Image by : Cloud Imperium

3.6 Also brings us some re-works to some existing ships and vehicles. The Merlin and it’s variant, the Archimedes, both received a re-work. The Vanguard also started as a re-work and eventually became an in depth redesign to be more like its concept artwork. Only 10% of the interior and 20% of the ships exterior are actually left. The Vanguard was meant to be a more ‘beefy’ long range ship. There are more ships and vehicles planned that are not on the road-map. Like the Valkyrie and Arrow, two ships that no one new about until they saw them at the last Citizen Con. The long term plan is to bring new ships from concept to playable faster.

FOIP and VOIP Improvements –

With the release of Alpha 3.6 one of the main goals was to bring you the ability to hail other ships. When you are out in space and see another ship you will be able to hail that vessel. There will be separate channels used for communicating with squad mates or team mates. FOIP and VOIP were introduced a few patches ago but had to be turned off due to bugs in the system causing crashes. With 3.6, most of the bugs have been worked out and the functions will be brought back. There are many areas of the functionality that will be expanded upon as things progress. The main goal is to give players a smooth and easy way of communicating with each other on a dedicated channel. With the amount of work needed to go into the feature, it will not all be there with the next update. But where the system is at now, it will be added in 3.6 and expanded upon with future updates.

Flight Improvements –

In the 3.6 update the vehicle accelleration throttle feature has been brought back. The feature drives how manuverable your vehicle is. In the previous version the feature was designed more like a cruise control feature. With the improvements made to the feature you now have more controll and features to your ship. You can do more of a soft landing now with your ship. Also ships have a more realistic and controllable hover ability.

Shield Systems and Tech Replacement –
Image by : Cloud Imperium

Shield generators will now have a more independent characteristics to each. In the previous versions, if you have two different shields with different features, the system would just combine the shield abilities into one. With the new shields system you will notice more of a separate behavior between the different shield generators.

Vehicle Load-out Persistence –

The persistent vehicle load-out feature was snuck into update 3.5.1 due to popular demand. Initially the feature takes a basic approach of whatever your ship configuration is. When your ship gets destroyed or lost, you go claim another one and you get the ‘carbon copy’ of it. In the future the system will look at what the base value of your ship is. Then looks at what modifications and value you have added to your ship and calculates the ship insurance accordingly. Calculations will also be added in for cargo insurance as well. Players will be presented the option to add additional insurance to your cargo for an extra fee.

Additionally to the new features coming to 3.6, there are also some that won’t make to the update but will be coming soon down the road. Ship Rentals are planned, as well as Server-Side OCS and server meshing. With OCS and server meshing, there is a major re-configuration in the coding that needs to happen. That will take some time, but it is a top priority for Star Citizen. It will get the game servers on track for the persistent universe. At that time accounts will be wiped and players will be able to start building their fleets and wealth for the long haul.

As the Alpha 3.6 update gets closer we will bring you any new information as it becomes available. Be sure to check back and always remember to keep your gaming set to MAX!
