Still looks like it should have 8 missile launchers.

There is a fine line between a post and a signature.

It has 8 "hardpoints". I.e. a Salvager or whatever will appear on that last platform if you equip one.

Looking good, though! The lack of the Xzibit effect is a nice change.

No they don't. Salvagers and tractors go on top of the roof in the middle and just below the exhausts on the tail.

Its alot lighter now, kind of the same colour as a Tengu

This one's a bit over the edge guys.

Locked for breaking... well, pretty much all the rules.

Did you test it on SiSi to confirm this? My post was just an educated guess, but I've been known to be wrong before.

I like the new colour but i don't like how they are rounding up all the ship edges...Caldari are meant to be sharp :(

It looks less Caldari and less cool.

Yay, after ruining the Minmattar textures CCP sets their sights on really ruining the drake.

Things are only impossible until they are not.

^^That.^^

Caldari ships are not supposed to be all soft and rounded, that's what Gallente are for.

And what the f are those two square tumour-like...things...on the back-bottom of the main "wings?" Fix naow, CCP.

Star Wars: the Old Republic may not be EVE. But I'll take the sound of dual blaster-pistols over "NURVV CLAOKING NAOW!!!11oneone!!" any day of the week.

If you look closely you can tell its a spaceship by the way it is.

Pretty neat.

100% improvement, good job CCP designer. Cool

The useless window textures have been removed and are now showing up where they actually make sense.
The angles are in fact sharper, it´s just the lighter paint job that´s confusing the all too easily confused.

Love how the "inbuilt launchers" have been turned into actual positive space helping somewhat with the main problem of the model. That is that it´s just too flat (pancake like the esteemed previous poster noted Blink ).

Or maybe the underside has been thickened?
So that there is actually space to put all those rockets, their launchers and the rest of the ship.. ?

They should change the Drake to look like this design, then everyone will be happy. Cool

Actually no. If you fit tractors and salvagers they have unique hardpoints in the top. The 8th missile battery never gets used.

I dunno what rounded edges you guys mean, but if you look at the front two pointy things, they are even pointier.

More 45 and 90 degree angles all over. Pretty edgy.

Hello, hello again.
