Unshackled: The Drake Cutlass


The Cutlass is here! The Drake Cutlass is a versatile starship built with life on the rough-and-tumble frontier in mind. Whether you’re running search-and-rescue ops or engaging in interstellar piracy, the Cutlass is the rare combination of fighting ship and dedicated cargo hold.

The Cutlass is a true ‘jack of all trades’ ship, with space to expand for a multitude of combat and support roles. The Cutlass isn’t just for pirates seeking to carry away their treasure: they can be outfitted for everything from law enforcement to search-and-rescue!


The Cutlass Black, Drake’s base model, is a low-cost, easy-to-maintain solution for local in-system militia units… or, more commonly, pirate organizations. A larger-than-average cargo hold, RIO seat and dedicated tractor mount make the Cutlass Black the ship of choice for interstellar piracy.

The Cutlass Red is Drake’s dedicated Cutlass ‘ambulance’; equipped with onboard medical facilities and an array of search-and-rescue gear, the Cutlass Red is a battlefield support ship that can still pack a punch! If your squadron is going up against the Vanduul, it never hurts to have a Cutlass Red on your team!

Remember: we are offering these pledge ships to help fund Star Citizen’s development. All of these ships will be available for in-game credits in the final universe, and they are not required to start the game. The goal is to make additional ships available that give players a different experience rather than a particular advantage when the persistent universe launches.
