Ships Type 10 Defender Club

I'm pretty simplistic the way I play. I've not discovered the social side of the game. Just playing solo mode. My main credit gaining activity thus far is surface mining. I don't core mine as I play with mouse and keyboard.

I have four ships. I mine in the Corvette but the rear position of the cockpit makes depth perception a little hard. So I'm looking for a new miner with a sizable cargo storage and front cockpit. Type 10 and 9 suit the task, as does the iCutter. I don't hunt Thargoids etc so that's not a concern. I simply go mining for a few hours when I need credits.

I know the Anaconda suits also, but there's something, probably illogical to avoid buying a Conda. Too common? The big square hull underneath?

Anyway the Type-10 with just the 8M cargo is 512 t and that's ample. In fact the ship kits out well as a miner. Also I see the Type-10 as more versatile than the Type-9.

Anyone care to share some thoughts?
The Python does alright it hauls a good load and is a good all around ship.
 
Im oficially back in the club, since i bought back this ship and will be using it as my go to ship for my main ocupation in this game, exploration!



It wont be a great jumper as range goes, but it is a small tank with decent shields, around the 35ly mark, and almost everything i feel i could take on a bigger trip, its got a cool paintjob and body kit too.
But has exploration is not about how far and fast you go but actually about how much u discover and explore, its fine as it is.

I called it the "RAXXLIANWHALE" cause im a tinfoild fan...

As a true explorer ship i got no guns on it.

It's a great explorer with that awesome canopy as well tons of hull. Here's my build: https://s.orbis.zone/3bzq
 
If anyone wants to try one of the most fun and noob friendly (but not noob engineering friendly) PvE builds this is the one:

You will evil laugh even if you never evil laughed before.
 
Does t10 have PVP potential? Any chnaces in staying aganist a Conda or a Cutter?

Yes, it does. But if you do well in a t-10, you will do better in another big ship.
Drag hounds are very important if you want to constantly hit with plasmas, as they can be used to balance your maneuverability disadvantage. Very annoying to fight anything that has target lock breaker, as you're impossible to miss :D
 
My good friend and I are proud members of the Type 10-Defender club. After being out in the black in our Anaconda's so long we came back to the bubble to do some of that painite and void opal mining we've been hearing so much about. Started out in Pythons and then after a few hauls got our Type 10's and kitted them out with weapons and mining gear. No more worrying about pirates if we have to take a break while in the rings and instance back in. Wanna scan me, they gone wish they hadn't!
 
I've used my Type 10 for cargo hauling to and within the Witch Head Nebula. Between local stations without a fuel scoop and shields, it can haul over 500 tons of cargo.
 
Used to have a trader T-10. Was k but swapped it for a trader Cutter. 200t more cargo, same unstoppable escape from submitted interdiction.

It is a fun ship tho'.
 
love my t10 must be the industrial look and the sounds.

anyways has any one of you killed any thargoids with it curious if we got some AX cmdrs here. would like some build suggestions! thanks !
 
Need Ship Launch mining Vessel. fitting in between astroids ain't so easy. Love The spoiler Wish it had a purpose. does really well against Eagles if you fly backwards lol
wish the hardpoints were better located and the 1 hardpoints upgraded to 2s.

Personally I just go with big shields and some extra hull armour, and just shunt the little roids out of my way. And if I have to grind down the sides of the bigger asteroids... meh.. its only paint. For the tricky stuff I send in the collector minions. :LOL:
 
I get more pleasure out of my T10 than any other ship in the game. I have looked and looked but have yet to see my first thargoid.
