[Tell] Me About Stealth Bombers

Hello friends!

I have spent a little bit of time playing EVE in the past few months, but not nearly as much time as necessary to develop a plan for what I want to do. Most of my subscription has honestly been somewhat wasted since I haven't really paid attention to what's going on in the game. But whatever! That's not why you're here. A friend of mine named Vily has told me that this other cool cat named Kcolor has recently taken over a bomberseltzer-or-something group that does stuff with bombs. Or something? In any event, it looks like the stealth bomber is boss, and I don't want to stumble into bomberseltzer without having some idea of what I'm doing.

The easiest ship for me to train would be the Hound, but I am willing to cross-train to something else. Can someone give me a general guide to how to fly a bomberseltzer bomberthing that bombs boss bombs all over bombland? Thanks in advance!

The Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit (also known as the Stealth Bomber) is an American strategic bomber, featuring low observable stealth technology designed for penetrating dense anti-aircraft defenses; it is able to deploy both conventional and nuclear weapons. The bomber has a crew of two and can drop up to eighty 500 lb (230 kg)-class JDAM GPS-guided bombs, or sixteen 2,400 lb (1,100 kg) B83 nuclear bombs. The B-2 is the only aircraft that can carry large air-to-surface standoff weapons in a stealth configuration.

For bombing bombers, you ALWAYS need:
An MWD
An MSE
A point
A cloak
A bomb launcher (Do not use your special snowflake bombs. You will **** it up for everyone. Use the ones the FC hands out/tells you to use before the op.)
3 torp launchers

The rest is personal preference. ALL of the necessary modules must be online at the same time; you'll know why the first time you do a bombing bomber fleet.

This is my bombing bomber. I recommend that you train for all races and have them all available, so you can switch depending on the bomb type needed.
[Hound, Bomber Wing]
Micro Auxiliary Power Core I
Nanofiber Internal Structure II
Ballistic Control System II

Limited 1MN MicroWarpdrive I
Medium F-S9 Regolith Shield Induction
J5 Prototype Warp Disruptor I

Covert Ops Cloaking Device II
Prototype 'Arbalest' Torpedo Launcher, Caldari Navy Nova Torpedo
Prototype 'Arbalest' Torpedo Launcher, Caldari Navy Nova Torpedo
Prototype 'Arbalest' Torpedo Launcher, Caldari Navy Nova Torpedo
Bomb Launcher I, Shrapnel Bomb

Small Ancillary Current Router I
Small Polycarbon Engine Housing I

stealthbombers: you cant see them. ah and they have a new model

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

lots of good stuff



Pointing out that this is all very good advice. I highly recommend you follow it if you plan on flying bombers.

Train for every ship. It's 3 weeks for the other 3 after you train one. Also if you're serious about it, get covert ops 5. Big damage boost. Helps quite a bit.

Fly practice runs too to get used to how things.

.... no


IF you are bombing (ie. using the bomb launcher) you fit for speed and allign time, you dont need anything else.

[Hound, Bomber]
Nanofiber Internal Structure II
Nanofiber Internal Structure II
Nanofiber Internal Structure II

1MN MicroWarpdrive II (down grade if fitting problems)
Medium Shield Extender II (down grade if fitting problems)
[empty med slot]

Bomb Launcher I, Shrapnel Bomb
[empty high slot]
[empty high slot]
[empty high slot]
Covert Ops Cloaking Device II

Small Warhead Calefaction Catalyst I
Small Polycarbon Engine Housing I

If your going for torps (hunter killer, black ops style) Its more your personal preferance, my fits below:

[Hound, Your not alone]
Ballistic Control System II
Micro Auxiliary Power Core I
Nanofiber Internal Structure II

Warp Disruptor II (Can be changed if in gang for other ewar)
Medium Shield Extender II
1MN Afterburner II

Prototype 'Arbalest' Torpedo Launcher, Caldari Navy Nova Torpedo
Prototype 'Arbalest' Torpedo Launcher, Caldari Navy Nova Torpedo
Prototype 'Arbalest' Torpedo Launcher, Caldari Navy Nova Torpedo
Bomb Launcher I, Shrapnel Bomb (Offline) (Not necessary, but useful to have)
Covert Ops Cloaking Device II

Small Warhead Calefaction Catalyst I
Small Polycarbon Engine Housing I

You'll note the rigs are the same, this is to keep the same hull.

There is no end all fit, some people sware by MWD's, some more ewar. Find what you like.
