Readers might be curious about these fits. These were used to gain the final reward of the Haulers.

In High Security, completing the higher tiers of the daily objective might be seen as impossible.

Normally Gneiss would not be found, but the pseudo ore of Level 4 Mining Mission substitutes for the Hauler requirements. The issue with the Level 4 missions is that it requires 45,000 m³ of ore per mission. And given the huge size of the ores; 5 m³, 8 m³ and 16 m³ - the count can range from 2800 units up to 9000. I am sure that rorqual points would achieve these tallies in short order.

I was even able to complete Tier 5 requirements using the L4 missions.

This is why the absurd hulk fitting you see here. It is geared for total ore and almost zero defence. Not something I would never recommend someone else fly either. As a rule I do not fly hulks, they attract unwanted attention. Using ORE strips was desperation. Years ago I picked up a set that for some reason someone sold very cheaply. I had the idea of re-selling for instant mark-up. But have yet to get around to doing that. So I broke them out for this occasion. Ideally I should be using the relevant mining crystals for each of the ores, it would be a lot less risk and higher yield. But these strips do have a distinct advantage over the standards. Their base range is 18 kilometres. The Hulk's hull bonus stretches this to 23. Which does make some of the mining missions a little faster.

Augmented Mining Drone round out the insanity. For either of my readers not aware, Drone Navigation Computers do increase the speed of mining drones. (and Salvage Drones too).

I was not alone being crazy. (always take someone with you).

That myrmidon is courtesy of an ally. Who does not fly orcas and does not log-in for less than a billion. But it does get the job does of raising my yield even more. At the same time their drone flight makes it easier for me not to recall my miners each time an NPC warps in.

The other half of the Haulers - was completed doing Level 4 Security Missions. I just aimed for the tier3, 10,000,000 bounties.

A bunch of risk and the rewarding goal.

Most of all, it was fun.
