Not to be confused with Shamu, this Orca rocks...as in mining.
The new class of ship for EVE Online is called the Orca. It is classified as a "sub capital" ship, but the pictures make it look pretty capital. It is supposed to be more affordable for use in more areas. In addition to it's role, here are the bonuses:
* 250% bonus to range of tractor beams (70km)
* 100% bonus to tractor beam velocity (1km sec)
* 500% bonus to survey scanner range (~125km)
* Can fit gang mods
Industrial Command Ships Skill Bonus
* 3% bonus to effectiveness of mining foreman gang links per level
* 5% bonus to cargo capacity per level
