Im wondering if its more profitable to mine in a moa then a venture for alphas

currently in my venture i mine 187m3 / min with 2x laser II, Mining Laser Upgrade II and all the skills a alpha can have.

so for venture is: 187 x 2 turrets = **374m3/min**

with a moa however

5x Miner II

2x Mining Laser II

1x Co Processor II

3x Medium Processor Overclock Rig

fit: https://fits.federatis.fr/loadout/1197

the simulator gives me 86m3 / min per turret

so 5x 86m3/min = **430 m3**

Total it cost 20 mill to build.

Let say it takes 11 ticks to fill up a venture.

11 x 374m3/min = 4114 m3

11x 430 = 4730 m3

**So you would be 15% faster mining Ore in a Moa**

**Is this viable?**

You would have to mine with a MTU and come back and collect your ore. ]

Which holds 27000 m3,

A venture holds only 5000m3,

so a 27000/5000 = 5.7 ratio,

Ammoritzed cost of travel the MOA is cheaper. you need to

Go station

come back with hauler

go station, deliver ore

come back with Moa

4 trips

So you would be **30%** (5.7 - 4 = 1.7) faster delivering Ore in a Moa
