The Drake Kraken Privateer is a variant of the Kraken intended to serve as a mobile marketplace or outpost. The ship can accommodate many ships and also offer habitation for travelers that may want to stay a little longer.[1]

Features

  • Public market: The beating heart of the Privateer features space for eight separate shops, each with 189 SCU of secure storage for stock and consumables.
  • Private market: The private marketplace houses two additional shops, each with 189 SCU of storage space, and is the perfect place to peddle your more "rarefied" wares.
  • Internal Hangars: A spacious multi-purpose hangar can keep your org topped off with fuel and supplies, spring serious firepower on unsuspecting interlopers, and accommodate a variety of vessels - if it fits, it sits.
  • Landing Platforms: The Kraken's versatile landing facilities support a varied fleet, with 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.
  • Turrets: Five manned and four remote turrets, positioned at strategic vantage points around the ship, provide the firepower to blow even the most daunting troublemakers out of the sky.
  • Bridge: Command your flying fortress with confidence from the state-of-the-art bridge that redefines what it means to captain a capital-class vessel.
  • Engineering: Easy access to the ship's engineering platform lets your crew effortlessly keep the engines stoked and your flying marketplace on course. [1]

[3]
