So what's everyone else's thoughts between these two ships for deep core mining? 5x, actually. The idea that you can turn one deposit into 5 by shooting it with 5 blasts is like saying you can have a baby in one month by impregnating nine women. © Valve Corporation. The Python has that extra size-6 internal, plus I feel with engineered A-class thrusters it's fast/agile enough, though jump range would suffer. That's what I did, my Python was my mission engineered ship, swapped all the modules to the Krait and was good to go. I think the python will be more efficient but I’d rather enjoy myself in the process. Anaconda! I'm so torn. The Krait MkII is a leaner, meaner alternative to the Python, featuring almost identical module and hardpoint specifications. just watched the live stream! Krait. Great storage capacity, terrible hard point placement. The larger cargo isn't really gonna offset that in terms of cr/hr. In terms of profit the AspX is making about 15,000,000cr more per asteroid than the other two. Discussion. Builds . I'm so torn. I dislodge my chunks in one or two blasts. Fighter hangers also come in C5 with one fighter only. Ha ha, I did the exact same thing. The Mk II is faster and more agile, longer jump range, and allows the option to use an SLF. Went through the same debate myself, but sided with the Krait MkII. You can blast off 5 chunks off of surface deposits at a time so you can fill 104T with 4 rocks, which takes about an hour on average. You can fill up with 4 rocks with a 96T+8bin hopper (104T total) and 5 abrasion blasters. Thanks. Its basically a slightly worse python with a Keelback fighter bay, gutted the jump range is so average, was hoping to make a nice exploration ship that isnt a diamondback/asp exp or conda. So I think it pretty much comes down to jump range+SFL vs larger cargo. I was thinking Orca too, but I like the option of being able to pit stop in outposts if needed. The Mk II is faster and more agile, longer jump range, and allows the option to use an SLF. New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast, More posts from the EliteDangerous community. I use my Python a lot to run cargo delivery missions with a 280t hold. I love them both, but it sounds like the Krait is more fun; can’t argue with that. I'm personally using an Orca (650 m/s) and pulling in 100-200m an hour mining void opals. Thanks, that seems to be the general consensus. 4560: 00 ptb_pausecmd_t. I've been using the krait phantom for my all around ship. Why will Krait Mk II have lower shields and hull than Python when both share same core internals? Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts, ThreeOSix (Employee Relocation Agent for the Empire). Speed and agility a bit better on the Krait! Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. Assuming optimal yield and getting a clean quad shot on every surface chunk. And the difference is actually in toy-hauling. That being said, I did consider the Phantom, but I feel the Mk I has a better, more flexible mix of internals. But the Krait makes up for it with the ability to equip a SLF! Funny, I was looking for an earlier thread comparing the internals between the Phantom and the Mk II, and I saw a user suggesting the Clipper, saying it’s better than both. the Python has enough space that you can squeeze in an SRV for surface prospecting. Elite Dangerous is a space simulator game by Frontier Developments based in the year 3306. Or helping you take down the pirate if your ship has any weaponry. And before you tell me to fly what I love, I own both and love both. Lots of cargo capacity as well as room for all the tools I need.
