Followers of our Wing Commander IV Storyboards feature noticed that the Bearcat makes frequent appearances as the game's new premiere Confed fighter. But before it was the fast and heavy Bearcat, it was to be known as the Cougar medium fighter. This batch of concept art uncovered in 2008 is a nicely detailed follow up to the storyboards.
Today we have more behind-the-screens material from Wing Commander IV: six early sketches of the game's various spacecraft. These are really cool - a length for the Black Lance transport, a more streamlined Dragon... a Bearcat with a different name ("Cougar")! In order, they are: Avenger bomber, Banshee light fighter, Black Lance transport, Bearcat, Lance (Dragon) and Durango (BWS Intrepid).
