Cyberion's Latest Model And Wallpaper Update ID

We've got a double feature today. Cyberion's latest Wing Commander Wallpaper has been released, and the model it highlights is here to go along with it. It's the tank that appears in the ground missions and cutscenes of Wing Commander 4. This gorgeous battle is scaled to 1280x960 and comes in around 850 k.

The shuttle is a nice touch. The lightwave source for this one is also available for you to play around with if you're into modding or modeling. Total size is under half a megabyte and can be found here.

Check Out Kilrathi Saga's Swag

Longtime Wingnut Joshua Dworkin has put together a pretty neat unboxing video. Since this trend came along relatively recently, it's cool to see these done for classic Wing Commanders, and I don't think we've posted a Kilrathi Saga version before. Completionists will be happy to see that he's kept his unrelated reference cards and advertisements, and we get good glimpses at the awesome discs, beefy manual and super cool 2673/1997/2003/2014/2025 calendar.

Stealth Carrier Sneaks Into The News

DefianceIndustries has put together a very sleek stealth carrier that belongs to the Black Lance.
