The Drake Cutlass Steel is a troop transport model in the Cutlass series with an additional remote turret, more missiles, and 5 door-mounted Gatling guns. With 18 jump seats for armed and armored passengers, the Cutlass Steel is designed to rapidly insert troops into an area while providing fire support for them.
The basic specifications are identical to those of the Cutlass Black but lacking any cargo space due to the installation of jump seats and additional turrets. Each jump seat is equipped with a single weapons rack for stowing FPS weapons. The rear turret is controlled by the co-pilot. The door-mounted gatling guns will be replaceable with other compatible mounted weaponry in the future, although this functionality is not yet implemented.
"It’s a jungle out there. Like it or not, we live in a dog-eat-dog universe. Away from the so-called protection of the UEE, the law of the jungle prevails – whoever has the most guns and most muscle makes the rules. Drake has your back in both departments with the Cutlass Steel. Equal parts daunting dropship and menacing gunship, the newest member of Drake’s flagship family brings the heat and then some."
