I played with a Drake last night and the launchers were not on the down-turned flanks at all like the above pictures, but they were on the top and bottom of the hull (the 'flat' areas). I only had a couple minutes to tinker, mainly because I was trying really hard to accept the new inventory system, and was only using 'light missile launchers'. Does the weapon type determine where they go on the Drake model?


seems like it, right now if you use heavy missiles, the turret goes on top of the fake launchers like in those screenshots above, but if you fit heavy assaults, then the turrets show up on the top and bottom of the main central hull area instead of on the fake launchers.


Now that's just odd. Sounds like some work has been done in advance of reworking the hull perhaps.

I don't think it looks bad either way, but yes, it could be better.

Hard to say how bad the drake will look from those pictures, it could go either way. I guess I'll be the judge when I log in tomorrow.

So close...

The Drake looks pretty awesome.

Patch notes for inferno 1.1 lists a drake redesign, as for other ship with built in launchers to the hull you all forgot about the Hurricane it has them on the sides, atlast the new turrent hardpoints for it arnt anywhere near there
