  • Landing Platforms: The Kraken has four pads for smaller craft, two larger platforms for medium-sized ships, and a hanger for personal vehicles.
  • Habitation units: 'The Kraken's landing pads, ample defenses, and generous onboard accommodations perfectly lend themselves to the Privateer conversion, offering security and amenities for buyers and sellers alike.'

History

Drake partnered with Cousin Crow's Custom Craft to create this conversion. They are known for their quality aftermarket conversions of large-scale vessels, and this Kraken turns the ferocious Kraken attack carrier into a private yet legal marketplace.[1]
