Excavator Mk V

The Excavator line of ships focuses on mining duties. Its lucrative mining perk means it can find pure commodities more often and its reasonable speed of 0.3 LYs and hold space of 100 Mgs makes it a perfect pocket miner. Improved over the mark four, the mark five swaps a large jump range for a lower defence rating and smaller hold.
