The Drake Kraken is designated as a Multi-role Light Carrier[1]. With comfortable habs for a full crew, mammoth cargo capacity, and enough armament to blow even the most daunting frigate out of the sky, this self-sustaining flying fortress is the most ambitious project Drake has ever undertaken, and a testament to the empowerment of the people. [2]

Features

  • Turrets: Five manned and four remote turrets to provide complete coverage; suitable for both defense and attack.
  • Internal Hangars: Two multi-purpose hangars for storing anything from supplies to cargo to ships.
  • Landing Platforms: Six versatile landing pads support a varied fleet - four pads suit smaller fighters, while the two upper platforms accommodate medium-sized ships.
  • Dragonfly Bay: The rear of the ship consists of a vast cargo hold and a bay designed as a one-stop shop for Dragonflies, or other small vehicles, capable of rapid, dynamic deployment.

Variants

  • Kraken Privateer: Drake Interplanetary has partnered with Cousin Crow's Custom Craft, well known for its quality aftermarket conversions of large-scale vessels, to redefine interstellar commerce. This official conversion endows the ferocious Kraken attack carrier with a private yet legal marketplace. After all, you shouldn’t have to break the law to chase your entrepreneurial dreams. [3]
