No, they simply require people to tank them.

A job which a hulk can do without breaking a sweat.

I think the hulk is actually a bit overpowered. It has too many low slots.

Things are only impossible until they are not.

Why does everyone say its an industrial ship then forget Deep Space Transports can have over 75k ehp and still have a decent amount of cargo room. 75k ehp is more than a untanked cargo expanded orca

Quite irrelevant.

The point is, they're both the same kind of ship: a non-combat industrial-type ship meant for one thing and one thing only (and, just to repeat that: it's not combat). You can still squeeze 30k EHP out of a Hulk, and that's fairly respectable for what it is and what it's supposed to be doing.

Would you consider the Bustard overpowered then? I believe it can fit an LSE while not being a combat ship but a tanky transport. It provides in my opinion a better comparison to the hulk than the iteron series as it is also a tech 2 version of a non-combat, dedicated purpose hull.

Using a tank that costs thousands of times more than the tank other ships of its size need.

In high sec, it needs no tank mods at all. In 0.0 it can tank the belts with a token effort.

You wish. P

The bigger the tank, the more expensive the ship they have to lose to gank you. It's not a big difference, but if you fit a half decent tank none of the poor people will try anything.

Gotta agree with most of the above. It's a mining ship not a battleship or even a cruiser. You might find trucks full of expensive equipment in a warzone, but that doesn't mean it can or should have the defences of a tank. The hulk is designed to extract ore quickly and absolutely nothing else. If it had an amazing tank it would be unrealistic IMHO.

Same reason why a supertanker has little defences, Its not a warship.

Youre right. they should make it so you CANT
AT ALL
fit defensive stuff on that "NON COMBAT" ship

as it is after all non combat

Oh baltec, its also usually illegal for them to mount weapons. Otherwise the pirates in Africa wouldnt be as big an issue

Keep in mind, people have been mining in 0.0 for years without this. But it requires more to do it.

As someone above me mentioned it requires a ridiculously expensive deadspace loot fit to do it. Forcing people to take out a second mortgage to afford enough PLEX to cover their losses is not an effective way to make mining the main source of high end minerals.


lol yeah that was me too. ;) Like I said can be up to a 500m loss of a single sub capital ship depending on fittings.

Probably less so in other parts of space, but certainly against sansha's the EM/TH part of the your fitting is gonna cost you because the rats do EM/TH and those are the worst resists. Likely end up with some faction in there somewhere and the rigs are taken up with it - so you cannot as someone above suggested fit PG rigs for LSE's ;)

You'll probably need a pithi/gisti B type shield booster also.
edit: for typo.

Yeah but the entire point of that transport ship is to transfer cargo through hostile space. Its built for purpose.
