Product page [N/A Caterpillar]
Drake maintains that the Caterpillar, a sprawling, modular spacecraft which appears at least somewhat like its namesake, is for legitimate commerce and extended search and rescue missions... but at the end of the day, the Caterpillar is truly the evil twin of the Freelancer.

Designed for supporting pirate operations, the Caterpillar features a large cargo hold for carrying loot, heavier armor than other freighters in its class and room for five crew able to serve in boarding operations. Despite its heavier armor, the Caterpillar isn’t a bulldog... a succesful operation will require a fighter escort.

The Caterpillar is a mercantile ship with a large cargo capacity manufactured by Drake Interplanetary. Drake advertises the ship as a mercantile and Search and Rescue vehicle, but its primary untold use is for piracy.
