Last night before going to bed I checked the markets and found an Orca on sale for my price range. So I bought it. Instant gratification anyone?
So here she is. As usual click to see it in full sized glory.
Here I am undocking in it. Haven't picked a name yet. Titanic perhaps? Boondoggle?
Although I don't do much mining, the tactical flexibility of having a mining command ship for future endeavours plus the ship maintenance array for transporting ships and the decent cargo capacity it boasts makes it an all round utility ship.
Interesting side note: according to EFT, the align time is 43.6 seconds compared to 44.7 seconds for the Fenrir freighter, and the Orca's top speed is 75m/s compared to 120 m/s. It is slower in autopiloting through high sec than the Fenrir as a result. For comparision, the jump freighter Nomad has a 28.6 second align time making it faster than both by far. Of course, neither frieghter can fit mods or carry assembled ships without courier contracts, nor give any bonuses to tractor beams or gang links.
