A stock Eagle Prospector

Hand-crafted with an impressive combination of skill, craft, love, and rocket surgery, the current powerhouse of the ring-racing circuit isn't available through any dealership. The Bald Eagle relies on gimballed RCS for reliable rotation thrust, but the combination of four torches and a low relative mass give it unparalleled lateral translation and acceleration. -In-Game Description

Bald Eagle
Make Custom-built
Low-Stress 2
Drone hardpoints 2
Crew 6
Dry mass 29,500 kg
Cargo bay 40 m^3
Processed cargo 14,000 kg
New price 10,000,000 E$

The Bald Eagle is an extensively modified Eagle Prospector, designed solely for racing. The Prospector Series' dual main torches provide high acceleration, while side-facing torches give this craft incredible strafing. To save weight, the cargo bay has been mostly removed, and the grinder has been replaced with an excavator, making the ship a poor choice for bare-bay mining. Interestingly, the ship retains all of the hardpoints, crew, and processed storage of the Eagle, making it surprisingly usable in most contexts.

Notes

  • The Bald Eagle must be bought in-ring from the racer NPC for 10,000,000E$, and will never appear in the dealership.
  • Despite having a massively reduced cargo bay, processed cargo capacity remains the same.
