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



The Tango is a cheap Miner that houses two Small Mining Lasers. Its total health of 1200 is divided evenly between hull and shields (600/600). It is similar in design to the Industrial Miner but much smaller. Its mining lasers have a range of 3000.

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


  • Cheap price.
  • New players can use this as a good income.
  • 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).


  • Make sure you always check if any enemies are coming every 30 seconds, either by looking around or on the Minimap.
  • Always mine in a non-war faction so you can make sure you will be safe.
  • Always make sure your faction has strong allies.
  • Don't mine at Mega Base If you are at war.
  • When war is declared, quickly turn back to the closest base and despawn.


  • Don't mine near aliens, and dock as soon as you see one warping.
  • Never mine at war unless your Warehouse is level one.
  • If mining at war, check the minimap every 30 seconds; however, you should not be mining at war anyways.
