The Drake Corsair is a multi-crew explorer that gives up defenses for a focus on versatility and defensive weaponry. With asymmetric, convertible wings and a large cargo hold, the Corsair adapts gracefully to unfamiliar atmosphere, combat situations, and hot landing zones. Up to four crew can be accommodated in the Corsair's functional quarters, and a full complement of scanning suites along with a pair of quantum fuel tanks provide the means and method of exploring distant, dangerous stars. [1]

The Corsair boasts six fixed guns and three turrets along with two missile racks for an impressive array of firepower in an exploration vessel, enough to make even the hardiest pirate think twice. [2]

Features

  • Weaponry: The Corsair features an upgraded, powerful array of weaponry for defense against both known and unknown threats
  • On-Board Facilities: Top-flight crew quarters and a full complement of state-of-the-art scanning suites combine to provide a powerful exploration platform
  • Rear Ramp/Cargo/Vehicle Storage: With enough room for either a ground exploration vehicle or a bounty of cargo, the Corsair's hold is vast and versatile

Development

The Corsair was first introduced in 2017-12-01 in the vote "YOU Pick the Next Drake Ship". It came last in the vote to be the next Drake ship by backers with 19% of 37696 voters.[3]
