They need new money to pay off the ponzi refunds.

CIG is now selling tanks for Star Citizen

Nowhere in the Kickstarter or stretch goals were ground vehicles, let alone freaking tanks, ever mentioned.

Star Citizen isn't a game. It's a TV show about a bunch of characters making a game. It's basically "This is Spinal Tap" - except people think the band is real.

And so soon after the land claim fiasco. I don't see how anyone could still doubt that they are in a dire financial situation. This tank sale is like a blaring siren warning of impending doom.

I think you'll have to buy something to shoot at too since there's actually nothing to attack to defend on the ground yet. You can defend your theoretical land claim beacon.

Don't forget to buy your tank hangar next.

I have two questions I would like to see answered concerning the Polygon article and a third that is not associated with it.

1. Hope the Crytek lawsuit will expose all finances from the start of the kickstarter.

2. What was the cost for the actors and how much did the sq42 cut-scene cost before we even had a working game.?
That project, which has been sold separately since February 2016, features the acting talents of Gillian Anderson, Mark Hamill and Gary Oldman among others.

The third is outside of the article but was doing a little research.

3. Cost of the LA Office Rented or Purchased, was LA a good choice to spend backers money?:
LA Walk aroundhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5Ig94L40lc&feature=youtu.be in the video the shows off a server rack with very little in it.
I would like to understand what actually takes place in 16,00 sq office, they say its for ship development pipeline, technical designers, high level engineering, community.

2015 Year    Taxes $56,530 (+1.21%)    Land $3,595,411    Improvements $1,043,827 Assessment $4,639,238
