The Tango is a small and fast early-game Miner.



The Tango is a cheap Miner that is equipped with two Small Mining Lasers. Its health totals at 1200 and is divided evenly between Hull and Shields (600/600). Its Mining Lasers have a range of 4000 studs. Takes a minimum of 100 seconds to fill up its hold.


The minuscule interior of the Tango consists of a dome that houses the cockpit. Assorted crates and a screen are spread in this cramped room.


  • Very low cost.
  • New players can use this to make a decent profit.
  • Good speed for a Miner.
  • If used by a player with a level one Warehouse, it is immune to all damage.


  • Low health. (1200 total HP).
  • Somewhat slow mining speed.
  • Limited Cargo and Ore Hold.
  • Targeted by Pirates due to the low health pool


  • Make sure to check for any enemies every 30 seconds, either by looking around or on the Minimap.
  • Always mine in a peaceful faction to ensure safety from players.
  • Always make sure your faction has strong allies.
  • Don't mine at the Mega Base during a War.
  • When War is declared, quickly turn back to the closest base and despawn.


  • Don't mine near Aliens, and dock if one starts coming closer.
  • Never mine at War unless your Warehouse is level one.
  • If Mining at War, check the Minimap every 30 seconds; however, it can be very foolish to insist on mining during a War.
