A stock Eagle Prospector

Developed in the early 23rd century for the Free States of Earth, the Mitsudaya-Starbus Eagle Prospector was designed as a dedicated mining ship, equipped with a robust asteroid grinder and an impressive cargo hold. An angled thruster layout prevents thrust against ringroids during approach, and twin main engines provide more than enough thrust for interlunar travel. -In-Game Description

The Eagle Prospector is a dedicated mining ship, and is quite capable in that role. The Eagle comes with a unique asteroid grinder capable of breaking up and ingesting small asteroids, while a large processed cargo storage and two drone bays make in-ring refining a common strategy. Twin torches and an angled thruster layout provide excellent maneuverability, especially with gimbled RCS.


  • The Eagle Prospector is currently the only ship explicitly designed for mining, not including custom modifications.
  • Despite having two torches and four hardpoints, the Eagle has an incredibly light dry mass.
