The Drake is possibly the most popular Battlecruiser, and certainly one of the most popular Ships in EVE Online, as well as for new or old Players, PVP or PVE interests. Its passive shield tank is a tough nut to crack and the 7 Launcher Hardpoinrts ensure a moderate DPS output, while keeping the Ship comparatively cheap. It outclasses its little brother, the Ferox, in almost every aspect.


 The Drake

Official Description:

Of the meticulous craftsmanship the Caldari are renowned for, the Drake was born. It was found beneath such a ship to rely on anything other than the time-honored combat tradition of missile fire, while the inclusion of sufficient CPU capabilities for decent electronic warfare goes without saying.
