This is another neat Birthday update that didn't make the Tuesday festivities. To coincide with the Standoff Stiletto release, psych and Jibbo have revamped the Joan's Fighting Ships area of the Fleet Tactics site.
Most of the ships now have refined and upgraded graphics which look a lot sharper then their predecessors, and most of the WC1 and WC2 Kilrathi fighters and capships now have compilation pics. You will even see a picture of the WC Standoff's newest Stiletto fighter as well.
Their ships section now features very cool graphics thanks to the creations of the Saga and Standoff teams. Head on over and check it out.
Back in June we showed you the first renders of Howie Day's Dralthi and Hornet models. Now, in celebration of our sixth birthday this past week, Howie has released the source files for people to use. The models are in Max 5 format, and are on our FTP. You can grab the Dralthi file here and the Hornet here.
Much thanks to Starman, Eder and Lynx of the WC Saga and Standoff teams for going out of their way to donate pictures to our cause.
Hobbes Betrayal Crosses Over Language Barriers
Most people are familiar with the infamous video cuts that were made to fit all of the video on the Wing Commander 3 discs. Helpful sequences such as the TCN news bursts and Hobbes explanation were omitted due to space constraints. Fortunately, these are now available here at the CIC, but for a long time, the main way players could watch the Hobbes scene was to track down a copy of WC3 on the Playstation or 3DO. (2018-05-23)

Check Out Spanish Wing Commander Armada
Christian Klein has found another rare and exotic Spanish Wing Commander translation by DROSoft. His last couple finds were for WC1 and the Secret Missions, but this jumps all the way forward to Armada. It would be a treat to see how they changed the Voices of War manual and how the English and Spanish versions would mesh over multiplayer. (2018-05-22)

Trusty Tarsus Takes Shape
Now that the Talon's out in the wild, DefianceIndustries' focus shifts to the Gemini Sector's other workhorse, the Tarsus. It's kind of a shame you don't actually run into them out and about, because the design is just so darn charming. Perhaps some of the allure is simply because it's your own unique home away from home out in space for so much of the game. (2018-05-21)
