Bald Eagle

The Bald Eagle is heavily modified version of the Eagle Prospector made exclusively for high stakes, high speed racing events in the rings. The front portion of an Eagle Prospector is removed and the grinder is replaced with the excavator from a K-37. The reactor is upgraded to to the Nakamura Dynamics Yama-SSR16S core - a stripped down SSR16 that can produce up to 50GW of thermal power. Full-size torches are mounted on the sides to allow high speed strafing. It retains the dual drone mounts of its donor ship, but loses the two low stress hardpoints. Most ring racers opt for the custom built ER-42 autopilot due to its trajectory prediction capabilities.
