Who are we?
Originally created at the release of Planetside back in 2003, BRTD is one of the most successful and active communities throughout the games history. Our focus is to create a fun, casual, and rewarding environment for all our members while ensuring we have the ability to knuckle down and get serious when necessary. These ideals have given way for our mantra; "Have fun and get shit done". We are now expanding our community into the Star Citizen universe looking for like minded players to join us.
Structure - Two Organisations, Working Together
Due to the diversity of careers Star Citizen will provide, we have opted to create two separate organisations. These orgs will focus on different aspects of the game while also being able to support each other. We want to give our members the option to be fluid with how they play, these two orgs will allow us to cover a large majority of available careers in an organised fashion. Jumping between the two at any time is permitted.
- Better Red Than Dead
Private Military Company - Planetary & Space Based Military Operations Anti-Piracy/Vanduul Militia Trade & Logistics Industry BRTD will be our main branch carrying on our militaristic history from Planetside. Primarily acting as both a Private Military Company and anti-Vanduul/anti-piracy Militia during non-contracted periods. It will also have secondary ties to conducting trade and establishing logistical and industrial networks.All fighter pilots, tank commanders, riflemen, drop ship gunners, cargo loaders, asteroid miners, and long-distance space truckers are welcome to join BRTD!

Exploration Science/Research Outpost & Colony Construction Surveillance & Reconnaissance Silverwolf will be our organisation for the less combat-intensive roles in Star Citizen. The organisation's primary mission is exploration; going out into the great unknowns of the universe and making them known. If you have a passion for discovery, a thirst for knowledge, the will to expand humanity's frontiers, and a low tendency for psychotic breakdowns after months of solitude while lost in space - You have a home in Silverwolf

Our current Fleet
(29th March 2018 fleet roster - Update coming after 2018 anniversary sale)
Hey guys, I was just trying to spur some discussion on the news that came out of the recent interview with Erin Roberts by BoredGamer.
Here it is below:
Some things I found most interesting were:
Ground & Space Battles both can be of epic scale & in a lot of situations will bleed over to combat over ground, air & space. The System allows for an Idris to go close to a planet and unload it’s weaponry. They are adding Tracked Vehicles, Static Defenses, Tanks, Missile Systems & more. And a lot more of this is planning on coming with 3.1 as well, they want locations where you cannot take ships because there are anti-air or ship defenses that would need to be disabled first, so you would have to go in on the ground with a group OR stealth in. Base Building:
They have plans for Base Building mechanics later down the road too, you’ll be able to spawn there, defend it, use it to store goods & ships. But they will be attack-able too & ground vehicles & installations will be a big part of the combat there. Players will be able to build functional bases, walls, habitation modules & lots more.
Thinking about the recent sale with the Nox, it seems CIG has the capability to branch out by selling more ground vehicles.
I think right now we have the Greycat, Dragonfly, Nox, and Ursa Rover in terms of ground vehicles.
Do you think people would be interested in buying a tracked vehicle or tank? I can only imagine it might be some time in 2018 where we start seeing these kinds of vehicles on concept sale.
By Tom Villder
I for one plan to use my trusty Freelancer (or the reworked Cutlass Black if available) with a Dragonfly and land on the planet for the first time. I would probably park my ship in a cave so it would be harder to find while I'm using my land vehicle. If land vehicle fuel is infinite in their first iteration, then one of the first things I would do is to circumnavigate the smallest moon once in a Dragonfly.
What are your plans?
