Maj. Striker has completed a new 3d animation for Wing Commander fans to check out his latest models in action.
Initially I was going to try to tell a story but all things have their limitations so this wound up being a brief clip of a couple of scimitars tangling with two Dralthi in good ole fashion space combat. I feel its a little better than my last animation and I certainly learned a lot doing this one. I love the WC community and although it's not much, this is my way of trying to give back to the community...by creating a few clips for those who can't get enough WC goodness. :)
It clocks in at three and a half minutes and 35 megs. It includes voices from the games to narrate. I really hope people eventually do turn something like this into a full story or movie someday. You can grab the clip here.
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)
