The Hunter is a ship, item, or other feature that is not confirmed to be in development for Elite Dangerous. It may or may not be added to the game at a later date.
The Hunter is a ship that appeared in early concept art for Elite Dangerous. Currently, no other information about the ship aside from the concept art is available, and no plans for this ship to be produced for the game have been announced.
The overall design appears to be that of an early Ship-Launched Fighter. Due to the similar design and overall shape, it can easily be assumed the ship was likely an early concept of the Gu-97. The fighter also bears a notable resemblance to the concept art of the Alliance Chieftain, suggesting it would have been manufactured by Lakon.
