Very little is known about the Anvil Aerospace F8 Lightning Heavy Fighter, other than that it will feature in Squadron 42. It won't go on sale on the website, and neither will it be easy to obtain in game since it is a military ship.

Two civilian variants have been made available to concierge level backers, the F8C Lightning and the F8C Lightning Executive Edition

Official Description

F8 Lightning:

Space Superiority Designed as the next generation super space superiority fighter, particulary with fighting the Vanduul in mind, it is a more nimble, more heavily armed fighter craft than its F7 predecessor. Discarding the second turret for more fixed weaponry, the Lightning is designed to take out any target that is in front of it - and it's easy to get a target in front of it.

F8C Lightning:

Few vehicles employed by the proud men and women who serve in our Empire's Navy inspire the awe of the legendary F8 Lightning. A force to be reckoned with, the F8 has secured Humanity's freedom from numerous threats at home and abroad countless times. Now, that same next generation space superiority fighter is available to become a part of your personal fleet with the Anvil F8C civilian variant.

F8C Lightning Executive Edition:

Always ready to improve upon near-perfection, Anvil has coordinated with the Chairman's Club to create this stunning work of flying art, the F8C Lighting Executive Edition. The hull has been beautifully accentuated with a unique premium livery, while in the cockpit you'll find sumptuous gold and metallic detailing, a fitting crown for this king of heavy fighters.
