The DrakeVulture is an upcoming one-man salvage starter ship with plenty of on-board storage to help with salvage operations. It is designed for single-pilot salvage operations in dangerous or distant locations It is small enough to sneak into hostile areas unnoticed to recover fresh salvage.
The Vulture was first introduced on 2017-12-01 in the vote "YOU Pick the Next Drake Ship". It was voted to be the next Drake ship by backers with 44% of 37696 voters. The ship went on sale on 2018-06-14.
Vulture's design share a lot of similarities with the ship Venture in EVE Online. On 2018-06-14, shortly after the design of the Vulture is revealed, players and fans of EVE Online pointed out the similarity between the two ships and accused CI of copying the design on EVE's subreddit, while CI developers pointed out that the ship is inspired by the Dragonfly. The rivalry escalated with redditors brigading on both subreddit to the point that even EVE developer CCP tweeted about it.
