The Drake Ironclad Assault is a versatile combined-arms platform which excels in transporting heavy vehicles and infantry squads, complemented by formidable auxiliary turrets for direct combat support. Furthermore, equipped with a comprehensive garage facility capable of refueling, rearming, and manufacturing new components for ground vehicles, this self-sustaining behemoth is well-equipped to overcome any obstacles or adversaries encountered on the battlefield.[1]

Features

Command Module
The command module can be detached from the main hull and used as an independent ship. It serves as the ship's escape pod and may be re-attached to the ship. It will be compatible with that of the Drake Caterpillar[2].
Fortified ramp
This enables it to deploy heavy ground vehicles onto a battlefield without warning. With the capacity to transport up to four fully-armored assault vehicles, it exhibits exceptional swiftness and effectiveness in their deployment.
Vehicle garage with Repair Bay
A comprehensive vehicle garage at the rear of the cargo bay allows for refuelling, repairing, and re-arming ground vehicles along with fabricating new components for on-site replacement. The Repair Bay can repair both vehicles and ships[2].
Armory
The Assault variant will be equiped with an Armory for storing arms and military equipment for the transported troops[2].
Weapons
The Assault variant is equipped with three quad turrets, which serve the purpose of delivering deadly air support and ensuring the safe clearance of landing zones. Additionally, it boasts an extra Size 3 turret that can be operated remotely, granting it an offensive advantage.
