Release the Kraken

Drake’s first capital ship is here. You’re welcome.

We threw out the rulebook to redefine private-use Capital-class ships, Attack Carriers, and the very nature of personal freedom.

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.

Power to the People

For private or corporate protection

Our designers tapped into the same intensive consumer outreach practices that conceived the Vulture and pulled forth the unyielding spirit of protection. The Kraken is the result. We got to the heart of what the hardworking folks of the UEE want from a capital ship. Inspired by these people, the Kraken’s adaptability mirrors the diversity of the Empire.

  • The Kraken is a protector and a beacon of freedom in a too-often cruel universe. For those tasked with safekeeping Citizens unable to protect themselves, the Kraken is both a sanctuary and a self-contained war machine ready to take on the most daunting adversaries.

  • It's also a literal titan of industry. The the ideal base of operations for a fleet of data-running Heralds or a mobile warehouse to load up a trusty Cutlass. Whatever your business, the Kraken is a functional, comfortable, and secure base of operations.
