The Drake is commonly used as a passive tank due to the bonuses it receives from the Battlecruiser skill. Common loadouts include large numbers of Core Defence Field Purgers, Shield Rechargers and Shield Resistance Amplifiers. The Drake's passive tank is a tough nut to crack thanks to the large number of medium and low slots.

"Many people underestimate the DPS on a drake." - Eloy Domingos. This quote holds true value because with the Drake's seven missile launcher slots and its bonus to damage, it can throw missile after missile at its enemies. With 7 missile hardpoints and bonuses crafted specifically to its missile armament, it packs superior firepower compared to the Ferox while still retaining an excellent defense. As missile deployment is considered to be the preferred weapon against NPCs, it has all but completely replaced the Ferox in this role.

Drakes are becoming an increasingly common sight in fleet warfare. While missiles are often discouraged for use against other capsule pilots, the shorter engagement range and quick flight time of heavy missiles somewhat mitigates this. Its attractiveness however, lies in its extremely powerful shields, and with the right fitting the Drake is recognized as having one of the strongest shield tanks in the game. The Drake is one of the sturdiest Battlecruisers available, and is a good ship to use, whether you are new to the Caldari or a veteran.

Description & Bonuses

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.

Battlecruiser Skill Bonus:

  • 5% shield resistance
  • 5% bonus kinetic damage of heavy missiles and heavy assault missiles

99% reduction in the CPU need of Warfare Link modules.
