The bottom front cockpit/arm is the fugliest of any ship I've seen tbh. I though there was 3 turrets during CitCon, and "he" said the same number of buckets but can use them all with out dropping them off. basically 2x. 

Don't get me wrong I think that is a beautiful ship, just that's a horrible mole on the front. 

Why should a large ship if it can only carry 2x the load of the prospector.

It's strange that CIG would reveal the Argo Mole during IAE but not put it up for sale until 3.8's release. I guess they're committed to their new sales strategy of making new ships immediately available to fly. That's certainly better than having a concept sale and the ship taking years to develop, but it still seems strange for CIG to withhold a new ship when we long-term backers prepare ourselves (and our wallets) to buy new ships during the anniversary sale.

The Mole is an interesting design -- the Argo style guide is very distinct -- but I don't like that it so closely resembles the Prospector. It seems like the pilot will still be operating the drilling laser, so what does the rest of the crew do? When I heard the rumours that CIG was developing a multi-crew mining ship to fit between the Prospector and Orion, I assumed that it would have multiple drilling rigs operated by different crew members. But the Mole seems to only have the one drilling rig on the front, just like the Prospector. It even has the expanding saddle bags for resource storage.

I suppose since we know virtually nothing about the Argo Mole that I should reserve judgment. I expect that CIG will explain the value proposition of a multi-crew mining ship when the Mole is released for sale.

sounds like it will be a christmas item. or a bit after.

Since the prospector every one has been expecting a med miner.  the bonus is that it can refine,  and land on a planet  will make this a hot item

for the miner that can afford the cost.  225-350 mark, prolly a 2-3 man crew.

but it does look like an spartan industrial ship- no frills.

It's likely that I'll CCU the Prospector (though I do really like the ship and have had fun with it mining) to the Mole.   We do know that the Mole has a refining operation on-board which sets it apart from the Prospector.   Honestly I don't think it should have it...... but this is CIG (since only Penultimate ships have it).   I think it won't have any drones however like the Orion and probably not the mining volume / processing speed of the Orion.

Where does it say that it has a refinery? I never came by that info.

Because there was a concept slide for a refinery ship during CitCon (during one of the off-camera panels, I didn't go to CitCon tho):

This one's a concept for a refining ship that they pitched at CitCon.

It looks like they want chutes/pods to be ejectable so they can be tractor beamed in and transported by other ships to refineries or other similar processing facilities.

@Brightmist I think you are right about the Argo Mole not having a refining operation (and honestly I hope it doesn't and is reserfved for the Orion or a Large Mining ship (like this concept 4 (which is how people got confused) - it is not the Mole

On the subject of mining, standardized mining chutes and tractor beams, Cutlass and Caterpillar will likely be the ships to grab those chutes with their tractor beams and haul them around on top of the future dedicated refining ship or ships or ships with a refinery like Orion.

Other known ships with tractor beams are 315p, Argo SRV, Orion and Reclaimer.

      Hi everyone /
      I have images/gifs of ships/vehicles that are either flyable or in concept, development, re-worked or from Star Citizen lore.
      There are also many other categories, including anything from Star Systems to Characters to Ship/FPS Equipment.
      I constantly add more to the albums so don't be afraid to come back here anytime for the latest images.
      Please Enjoy.

      Well apparently there exists a new argo ship in the lore.

      edit: I dont know what SRV stands for, but I dont think that it is a Argo MPUV since the MPUV would be to small to tow a 325a.
