Roland Emmerich has released a new photo from the set of Independence Day 2, giving us a look at the kind of bigger and badder gear we can expect in the new film.

More specifically, what he calls the Moon Tug. 

Anyone want to venture a guess as to what a Moon Tug is? Let’s hope we don’t have to wait until the movie’s release on July 24, 2016 to find out.

Emmerich is also hosting a live Q&A with the cast of the film today at 6 p.m. PT on Ustream.

Leading the cast of Independence Day 2 is Jessie Usher (Survivor’s Remorse), who will be playing the son of Will Smith’s Steven Hiller from the original film. Jeff Goldblum, Liam Hemsworth, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and Vivica A. Fox have also been cast.
