The 2946 RSI Polaris

“Fast and lethal. Those were the directives. How do we make something meets both those expectations in a ship this size? It took a massive amount of work and ingenuity, but I think we did it.”

- Jules Parliegh, RSI Lead Ship Designer on the Polaris

THE POLARIS


3b188 Star Citizen Polaris Cockpit The 2946 RSI Polaris

Built to be both a naval patrol ship and a flagship for militia operations, the Polaris’ versatility makes it an ideal vessel to accomplish a wide variety of objectives. Whether on a search and rescue operation, light strike mission, or general security patrol, RSI’s latest cap-ship is ready to help bring safety and security to your system.

The Polaris was fast-tracked for development following last year’s Vanduul attack on the Vega System. The request-for-proposal specified a smaller, first-response alternative to the Idris-class frigates currently serving with both the UEE Navy and private concerns. Roberts Space Industries’ Polaris bid was selected due to its unique combination of a fully equipped small craft hangar and an array of torpedo tubes that let it punch above its weight class.

As part of the recent Militia Mobilization Initiative, the Polaris is being made available to Citizens so they can protect contested and dangerous regions around the Empire. The UEE military will also utilize the Polaris as a standard patrol and picket ship, where it is expected to be especially effective supporting larger fleet movements. A percentage of funds from the Polaris sale will support continued mobilization and relief efforts across the Empire.

To learn more about the Polaris concept and launch, please see the official commissioning brochure available below, the holoviewer model/data sheet, and the turnaround video which reviews the ship’s fighter launch procedure.

Militia Ship Sale


The UEE created the Militia Mobilization Initiative to embolden the general public to help defend the Empire from the Vanduul and other aggressive forces. To facilitate the arming of new militias or home defense units, they will be able to purchase a variety of military-grade and specialty ships. In addition, a government subsidy is being offered to discount the bulk purchase of ships. UEE Navy tactical experts even created specific pre-designed ship teams to aid in fleet formation.

About the Sale


The Polaris is being offered for the first time as a limited concept sale. This means that the ship design meets our specifications, but it is not yet ready to display in your Hangar, fight in Arena Commander or fly in the Alpha. The sale includes Lifetime Insurance on the ship hull and a pair of decorative items for your Hangar. A future patch will add a Polaris poster and then once the in-game model is finished you will also be given an in-game Polaris mini ship model! In the future, the ship price will increase and the offer will not include Life Time Insurance or these extras. The Polaris will be available until the start of Monday, October 17th, 2016.

Disclaimer

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 features in the Star Citizen world. Concept ships will be available for in-game credits in the final universe, and they are not required to start the game.

Additionally, please note that the Polaris will be entering the ship pipeline now, it may be released after other concept ships have been completed. All decorative ‘flair’ items will also be available to acquire in the finished game world. The goal is to make additional ships available that give players a different experience rather than a particular advantage when the persistent universe launches.
