Forum: Industrial Might

I'm starting a new feature:  Forum questions, where I ask you to respond to some crazy idea I come up with!  Without further ado, here is my question:

What if a new industrial hull was added that had a slight buff to tanking ability and more turret slots with a negative "bonus" to those turrets?  Something like:

Honey Badger

After years of plying the space lanes, Caldari industrial interests decided to update the tried-and-sometimes-true Badger to take into account the realities of cargo transport in New Eden.  While not intended to pose a true threat, the Honey Badger has a bit more bite than previous versions with the ability  to mount a semblance of firepower, while at a reduced cargo capacity.

Caldari Industrial Skill Bonus:

  • 5% bonus to shield resistance
  • 5% bonus to cargo capacity and velocity

Role Bonus:

  • -25% turret rate of fire
Give it 4/6/3 layout with 4 turret slots, same general stats as the Badger Mk II.

  1. I think it would mostly be used for semi-afk mining. Industrials don't have the tank or maneuverability to really fight.
