Hey guys,

I have been talking alot to people in game about the mighty "Orca" ship.
It's not as mighty as we all thought it would become after the update in november. The rorq gets a update that keeps the mining yield lower. As fair as it should be! But:

Maibe it's an idea to give the Orca a change to use 2 Excavator drones ? Gives it a fair amount of yield (ship costs 800 - 1 bil) and thats stipt... not even fitted.
it already got the brandwith to use 2 (50mbit max).
The only problem is the size... 750m3, and the Orca can hold max 200m3 of drones space... or change the Orca drones space size to 1500m3 or change the size to 75m3... that gives the Orca also room to carry 5 medium T2 fighters.

Let me know what you guys think...
