Star Citizen developer Cloud Imperium Games has announced the newest ship, the A4A Hurricane, which is described as a "fighting spacecraft that packs a deadly punch into a slight fuselage."

It boasts a "powerful armament," the studio said in a blog post (via DualShockers). The ship features six guns that are apparently "capable of blasting their way through nearly anything."

The ship is not for beginners, however.

"Mastering her unique ratio of heavy weapons with little armor requires a particular mix of marksman and dogfighter," Cloud Imperium said. "Naval pilots serving with Hurricane squadrons have fallen in love with the exclusively offensive design; their peers' constant refrain of, 'Are you having a little ship with your guns?' has served only to further distinguish the flights of 'Six Shooters.'"

You can buy the Hurricane right now for $160 and up as part of a "limited concept sale." What this means is 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."

So basically you can't use it yet.

"The sale includes Lifetime Insurance on the ship hull and a pair of decorative items for your Hangar," the developer added. "A future patch will add a Hurricane poster and then, once the in-game model is finished, you will also be given an in-game Hurricane mini ship model."

In other Star Citizen news, the crowdfunded game has now passed a whopping $144 million.
