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.
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.
