CCP Chronotis releases information on a highly sought after item today. The Orca has been announced! Personally I have looked forward to this for a very long time. The Orca was designed to help bridge the gap in the industrial series of ships between non-capital and capital ships.
“The Orca is a collaboration between Outer Ring Excavations and Deep Core Mining Inc. Designed as a “sub capital” logistical ship with a mining command focus, it is ideal for the day to day needs of corporations or individuals. It is perhaps a stepping stone towards capital ships, filling a void between the regular and capital class ships making it more affordable with a wider range of use in all areas of space as it can use stargates and does not have a jump drive.”
