If you see me in game I'm almost always game for merit hunting for ALD.
I feel your pain with the Vulture's travel issues. I *LOVE* my Vulture, but my God it's hell if you need to take it more than about 40-50ly.
Funny timing.... I just built a DBS for undermining on Saturday morning. The travel was great... 24+ly jump range, big fuel tank... nice! Made a 140ly trip in no time at all. But... the trouble I faced was with the amount of time it was taking per kill. Since the DBS has 2 medium and 2 small hard points, I set it up with 2G Beams and 1G multi-cannons. It was taking a while to knock down targets and on several occasions the cops showed up before I was done. It got pretty interesting a few times. The straight up cargo ships were fine, but when I'd get the cobra or adder transport ships they were taking a while (they were also dangerous or elite rank). The DBE would probably do better, with it's larger hardpoints. I haven't tried that yet. For now I'm back to using my Python for undermining. The jump range isn't great, but at least the tank is huge.

Just a head's up Skipp.... the folks on Reddit
have asked us to undermine Hudson at this time.
