It was just a matter of time, and today Chris Roberts’ Star Citizen passed another milestone, overtaking $43,000,000 in its unstoppable crowd funding campaign, supported by over 440,000 valiant backers.
Of course the achievement comes with its customary stretch goal unlock:
- Omni Role Combat Armor (ORC) mk9 Manufacturer: CDS (Clark Defense Systems) The ‘standard’ Marine armor for almost twenty years, ORC armor is prohibitively more expensive than standard-issue infantry body armor used by Army Ground Forces, but the Marines boast far fewer numbers and tend to make compelling arguments to get what they ask for. Clark Defense Systems’ ORC armor is created of composite mesh of fibers reinforced with ablative plates, offering a modest protection against both energy and kinetic weapons. While it doesn’t offer the same protection of the Marines’ proprietary Nail-armor or their SpecOps variants, ORCmk9 armor is a baseline solution for any number of situations the average Marine will encounter on any given day. Besides, in the words of Lt. Col Armin Trask, “you wanna know the best armor? Not getting shot.”
In addition to the news about this unstoppable train full of money, we also get a new episode of “Ten for the Chairman,” in which Chris Roberts himself answers ten questions from subscribers.
