With a relatively high top speed and fantastic ascent and descent characteristics due to her 3 large ballast tanks, Orca class subs are agile vessels, let down only by their small compliment of weapons, unreliable engine and reactors with a greater than average hunger for fuel.
~ In-game description

The Orca is a scout class submarine.

Notable Features

The Orca is notable for its maneuverability, Electrical Discharge Coil, Coilguns, and Reactor. The Orca's Discharge Coil is able to shock nearly the entire ventral side of the submarine. The Orca's Coilguns are able to converge on a target above the fore side. The Reactor is notable for consuming fuel 50% faster than other reactors, and for its short fire threshold (7 seconds).


The Orca's medical bay contains both a Medical Fabricator and a Toxin Cabinet.


The Orca is the most overall maneuverable submarine with full fabrication facilities.

Layout

The first level on the Orca is a docking hatch, airlock and a dive room with a mere 3 dive suit lockers. Ladder leads to 2nd level, with a compact bridge, gunner compartment and junction box compartment. Level 3 fore is the medical room and storage, and aft is the reactor and engine. The bottom level holds full fabrication facilities, and three somewhat smaller ballast tanks. This last detail is key to the Orcas maneuverability. While they are not as large, each of them is operated by one large Pump each. This means that each ballast can be filled or emptied quickly, flexing the orca from 0% water ballast to 100% water ballast level making the Orca very nimble.
