Back quiet along time ago when ship pipeline reports were still a thing, it was said that the terrapin will be reworked as it lacks the new stuff like proper working compartments for physicalized modules. It's a really old model that is kinda totally useless at this time, and even buggy a lot more than other ships with interiors not loading and such. Sad cos I really like the shape of it with the retractable armor plates.
Same goes for the herald, it will need a pass to bring it up to spec.

Terrapin's interior is probably the worst in the game.

Waste of space and there's that prominent torture chair right in the middle.

It's supposed to be a 1 man ship. Pilot either flies it (hopefully in get out of dodge mode) or spies on stuff. I have one but there's a 50-50 chance I'll upgrade it for something more useful before it is finished.
Lot of stuff they can do with that space though. Storage, racks, extra beds, heck....more computer stations just for cosmetic's sake.

Just have that one chair in the middle just isn't well.....efficient.

I'd have to say that the interior of the Herald is in a worse place than the Terrapin & probably always will be since it's a Drake.

I had a Terrapin once with my Exploration Pack, but I upgraded it a couple years ago into a Polaris. No regrets.

Here's to the Terrapin. It will be a big day when meaningful scanning game play is added, allowing this ship to detect incoming enemy fleets much sooner than other combat craft, find jump points more easily than others, and whatnot. This ship will be a little tank for that group-valuable game play when it gets unlocked. For now we're just paying for that promise. Hopefully they clean up its interior.

It's not useless, I do box missions, armour and weapon looting and anything up to VHRT combat missions in it (it's tougher than it looks cant wait for proper armour thickness and penetration to get in thje game). It's also a cool taxi = something a little different, I never see anyone else out in a terrapin when im bimbling around in me terrapin! :D

Did they fix the absolutely broken fuel usage then? Cos last time I tried a rented one a few patches ago it could barely make it out of atmo before running out of H.

It's certainly the stealthiest S2 sensor ship in game. It helps hugely that it has a third cooler. You don't need to turn the stealth switch on and in fact, that will raise your EM for no real gain, since with 3 coolers the IR is significantly lower than the EM even with the stealth switch off.

Leave the shields and guns off and dare people to find you.
