Hey there everyone! I have just a quick question and thought all of you could help out. I currently fly the Quantar Hurricane but was thinking about upgrading to the Harmattan. Which one of these two ships though would be better suited for mining? Is the upgrade worth it in the end?

biggest point i favour of the harmattan is double the roid drain. (problem is you sacrifice 4 missile slots)...It goes 22v slower and only has 11 cargo units more than hurricane. It DOES have a bigger radar than hurricane, but at that level you have loads of rotacol points from our database so it's a no brainer.

the turn rates are worse, the acceleration is worse, the armour is worse. Well, in short, the ONLY two reasons you should even consider switching to that sucker is if you can do 5 mining missions in one go (see here), or you're mining pure roids (see here).
    sorry, atm only UMEC members can access the former link
