A LIGHT HEARTED VIEW OF A PILOT IN EVE ONLINE
Mining with a Brutix

So I was asked by one of my readers about using a Brutix Battlecruiser (thanks to Callum for correcting me!) for mining. Now before you all get Trolling it is possible and quite good fun, the ship looks good.  Ok so my little Venture has 5000m2 in an ore hold. This puts the Brutix at a disadvantage because it only manages 3103.5m2 I’m using Hobgoblin II’s to defend both ships. Anyway as I said before this is a test fit out and I’m experimenting with it. It’s pretty quick at mining with the 4 mining lasers.

2016.05.09.22.10.37I’m waiting for down time in an hour or so and then I’ll go do some mining.

So I was actually out salvaging yesterday with my Algos which is always fun. Here we are approaching a station. Now there was some strange activity around Jita, literally 10 or 15 small ships would come and attack the station promptly being taken out by the police. I did salvage the wrecks but there was not much  there. So basically I have a theory it was some kind of training exercise, I came across 2 sets of ships about 20 of them, ok I made a bit from the titanium sales but it was a bit, well, strange.

I was challenged to a fight a couple of times in High sec yesterday, but as I’m in a salvager I decided to decline the kind offer and instead poodle off to find something to salvage.

My Skills are really getting good too! I can actually fit quite a lot of nice toys to my ships. Rather nice.

Now before you get all funny with me about wasting a battleship on a mining trip I will be using a different fit out later for some PVP/PVE when I finally get back home.

Anyway some more pics from yesterday’s salvage trips.
