“When I tell people I’m a hauler, they instantly assume I got some lump of a ship. That it can’t be sexy. I’ll tell ya. There ain’t nothing better than seeing their face drop once my Kore goes vertical.”
– Karl Mimsy, Independent Hauler
Reliant Kore: Flight Ready
The 2946 MISC Reliant is cleared for launch. Featuring a distinct flying-wing shape, extensive cargo room, unique weapons mounts and Xi’An influenced technology, this new addition to MISC’s lineup is sure to be popular around the inhabited universe. Planned as a ‘starter ship’ for new pilots, the Kore variant of the Reliant is a hauler with additional speed and dogfighting capabilities not found in a dedicated freighter ship.
In fact, the Kore was designed specifically by MISC to act as a balanced support its own Hull series. While the Hull line is solely dedicated to moving cargo from point to point with little interference, the nimble and better-armed Reliant is ideal for journeys that might involve an engagement or two. The Reliant has recently been approved for sale and flight around the inhabited galaxy.

In the Game
MISC’s design won a backer poll asking which ship we should build as the next starter. The finished product ended up being a fair amount more capable than a standard Aurora or Mustang, and so we have dubbed it a ‘Tier II’ starter (alongside the 300i and future ships to be announced).
The Reliant is available in the current patch and can be spawned at Port Olisar. Remember that the Reliant mixes both human and Xi’An technology, which is why it has such distinctive weapons hardpoints and a rotating flight mode.
You can learn more about the MISC Reliant Kore in the video, via the updated 3D model in the holoviewer or in the image galleries below. The team at MISC has produced six special blueprints for Reliant Kore owners to explain the ins and outs of their new ship. Enjoy!
About the Sale
The Reliant is being offered as a flight ready sale. This means that the ship design meets our specifications, and that it is now ready to fly in Star Citizen Alpha 2.5. If you’d like to add one to your fleet, they’re available in the pledge store until September 5th, 2016. You can also view a detail of the Reliant in the Holo Viewer in the Tech Overview of the ship page!
Remember: we are offering this pledge ship to help fund Star Citizen’s development. The funding generated by sales such as this is what allows us to include deeper, non-combat oriented features in the Star Citizen world. All ships will be available for in-game credits in the final universe, and they are not required to start the game. The goal is to make additional ships available that give players a different experience rather than a particular advantage when the final persistent universe launches.
