The Rorqual Capital Industrial in industrial configuration ("siege" mode: Industrial Core I activated)

The Rorqual is designed as a mining fleet assist ship. A Capital class like any other (apart from freighters), it cannot go into high security systems. The point of the Rorqual is to allow for the compressing of ore (using the Industrial Core I "siege" module), and the instant transport of a mining fleet, allowing for field mining in dangerous areas. It is inadvisable to activate the Industrial Core of a Rorqual in an asteroid belt, as the cycle time of the Industrial Core is five minutes, during which the vessel cannot move.

Ideally, a Rorqual will be deployed within the safety of a POS shield, where its inability to move is irrelevant. If the Industrial Core is activated while the ship is beside a Corporate Hanger, the pilot can take advantage of industrial ships hauling ore to it, and use the extra space as a buffer. This allows for maximum safety for the Rorqual, while rendering some of the ships bonuses (survey scan range, Capital Tractor Beams) useless, but is considered to be well worth it.

Description and Bonuses

The Rorqual was conceived and designed by Outer Ring Excavations in response to a growing need for capital industry platforms with the ability to support and sustain large-scale mining operations in uninhabited areas of space.

To that end, the Rorqual's primary strength lies in its ability to grind raw ores into particles of smaller size than possible before, while still maintaining their distinctive molecular structure. This means the vessel is able to carry vast amounts of ore in compressed form.

Additionally, the Rorqual is able to fit a capital tractor beam unit, capable of pulling in cargo containers from far greater distances and at far greater speeds than smaller beams can. It also possesses a sizeable drone bay, jump drive capability and the capacity to fit a clone vat bay. This combination of elements makes the Rorqual the ideal nexus to build deep space mining operations around.

Due to its specialization towards industrial operations, its ship maintenance bay is able to accommodate only industrial ships, mining barges and their tech 2 variants
