Prospect opens the door; time for T2 Orca?

I think cloaking is a bit much, but perhaps doable. It's not like it's going to win any real battles.

But honestly, the ability to create covert cynos to jump all those little bad boys in would be pretty cool. Basically make it a support version of a black ops without any of the combat capability. Rather than a covert cloak, give it a normal cloak and the BLOPS abilities (some or all).

What about something based on the Noctis hull as a step down from the Orca?

  • Can fit covert ops cloak
  • Can run one Warfare Link (more with Command Processors)
  • Perhaps a very respectable ore hold (scale with skill?)
  • A little range bonus to survey scanners (scale with skill?)
  • Maybe keep some of the tractor bonuses from the Noctis for pulling in cans?
  • Reduce or eliminate the drone bay?
  • No turret hardpoints, so it can't mine for itself

Not the first person I've seen mistake an Orca for a capital ship. It's a Command ship, actually.

It takes capital components to construct, actually.

blops orca? can't fit the cov cloak but can fit a cov jump bridge? Ultimate deepspace mining fleet, prospects and blorca. Would be fun as hell actually.

Ok, now it needs to be an Orca hull just so we can use that name for it...
