Could someone please confirm that Orca and freighters can be built in a Rairaru with a standard Manfacturing module? Having a hard time finding anything to indicate that these do not require the capital construction module, which would in turn require an Azbel outside of hi sec.

Hi, yes they can be built as they are not classed as capitals.

I've done both. JFs are fine too.

Be aware that if the owner doesnt provide fuel for the structure your job is halted! I had to go through that when i built my orca. it was a series of negotiating via google translator to get the job done i even bought fuel for the structure :)

Orca, Bowhead, Freighters, and Jump Freighters are all large-size hulls (same as Battleships and Marauders), not capitals.

All capitals require the Capital Ships skill.

The Bowhead is an oddball of the bunch that requires X-Large rigs, which would make it a capital, except it too doesn't require Capital Ships.
