The Kraken is a upcoming multi role - light carrier capital size ship manufacturer by Drake Interplanetary. The main focus of the Kraken is to operate as a mobile operating base with being able to repair, refuel and transport small to medium size ships as well as cargo.[1] The Kraken is also available in the upgraded Kraken Privateer variant that trades cargo capacity for commerce.

The release date has not been announced as of 2021.

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. Drake has thrown out the rule book to redefine private-use capital-class ships, attack carriers, and the very nature of personal freedom. It's nothing if not a testament to the empowerment of the people.
