Orca

Orca The Orca was developed as a joint venture between Outer Ring Excavations and Deep Core Mining Inc as a vessel to help meet the demands of New Eden's industry and provide a flexible platform from which mining operations can be more easily managed.

The Orca uses much of the technology developed by ORE for the Rorqual and integrated with the latest advancements from Deep Core Mining research division has developed a vessel which offers a diverse role to all sizes of operations and needs.

Fitting

High Sec

This fitting is for 0.5 security systems and above. It has a moderately strong hybrid shield tank. It also maximizes the storage capacity. The tank will not hold up to any prolonged onslaught and a player in a measly frigate will likely be able to break it, provided he survives (or shoots down) your drones. Do not get overconfident.

High Slots
Medium Slots
  • 1x Survey Scanner II
  • 1x any large shield extender
  • 2x region specific shield hardeners
Low Slots
Rig Slots
Please note: Using the T2 version will maximize your cargohold, however the massive cost make them undesireable.
Drones
  • 10x any small drones
Please note: T1 drones are appropriate for 0.5 security systems and above. Use T2 drones for 0.4 security systems and below.


Uses and special abilities

The orca is used for three major tasks boosting and hauling during corp mining ops, hauling ships and assets around New Eden, and as a movable pos like structure in Low sec and WH space.

The orcas's four holds make it stand out from the rest of the ships that fly the space ways.

  • The ore hold can only carry ore and cannot be expanded. It is used during mining ops and when transporting ore to be sold at a higher price in a near by system.
  • The cargo hold like on all ships is expandable using cargo optimization rigs and expanded cargoholds. It can be used to haul anything.
  • The ships maintanance bay is used to hold a few fitted ships if you need to move them with out flying them. Having this bay also allows corpmates to refit their ships without going back to a station. Its contents will not show up on kill mails.
  • The Corporation Hanger works like any corp hanger and can be controled using Corp roles. Unless you are using the orca in WH space or 0.0 to refit ships it is just more room to store stuff that you need to haul around. A special feature of a corp hanger is that its contents will not show up on kill mails.


Recommended Skills

Above and beyond the skills required to pilot the ship and use the appropriate modules, these skills will help you maximize your role.

Hint: With maximized Orca skills the range of your fleets mining lasers will be greater than their max targeting distance (unless they have trained Long Range Targeting. The Information Warfare skill will boost your fleets max targeting range so that it coincides with the max range for the mining lasers.
