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

Summary

Before the Citadel Expansion the Rorqual was mostly a toy for Mining Forman Links and ore compression in the field. Nowadays it's a serious weapon for the industrial backbone of major nullsec alliances and also sees use as a PvP ship as well, using its high drone damage and capital tank to good effect.

Skills

Further information about additional or recommended skills to pilot Rorqual for a specific or it's common role(s) can be written here.

Tactics

Avoid using the Rorqual for mining command bursts - command bursts give the pilot a weapons timer, which inhibits his ability to refit off his Mobile Depot.

Notes

• Rorquals cannot enter High Security Space.
