My vision of this (may be different of realization if it ever will be)
OB - Operating base (small citadel)
OB is middle ground between full size citadels and mobile depot. In base variation - mobile depot you can dock
OB is for hostile space. If you expect to use it more than couple of month you’d prefer permanent citadels
OB is disposable. It will be left behind
OB is not safe
Only 1 reinforce timer
Cannot be unanchored
No service modules fitting (included in construction when applicable)
No fuel need (included in construction)
No extra onlining delay for deploying in hostile space
No freighter docking
No asset safety
1.1. Faction specific combat variations. BPC sold in LP store
Industrial: have manufacturing and research services included, probably most expencive
2.1. Drug manufacture: self-explainable, BPC sold in pirate LP store
Moon mining: 1 use drill, shorter lifetime
Smuggler gates: concept is WIP, BPC sold in pirate LP store, shorter lifetime
I can unanchor Upwell structures, mobile depots and POS towers, why not this? -1
Fuel should be required for reinforcement to be effective (like POS).
Unfueled should bring abandoned state timer that results in auto-self-destruction.
15min anchoring, 15min online would be suitable. Reverse to unanchor and scoop.
Limits to anchoring range from other structures, stations, gates and celestials.
Otherwise FOBs are overdue, as is the final removal of POS structures.
