Yes, but nothing larger than heavy missiles. Cruise and Torpedoes can't hit small ships like frigs very well.

1. Falcons/blackbirds/scorpion. Choose what size of ecm you want. They win fights.
2. Drakes. Cheap and adaptable to any situation whether PVE or PVP.
3. Tengus. Probably the best caldari ship, it's a bigger badder drake. It's an awesome PVE ship, and you can definitely use it for some PVP.
4. Widow, black ops are underpowered, but caldari have the best one, due to it's bonus to ECM.

I have always had a soft spot for the Blackbird. *sigh*

im assuming blackbird is basically the beginning building block

but falcon and scorp seem to be different ship types IE. BS/RECON

they are known for:

meh frigates
**** cruisers except the tengu
meh battleships
pve supremacy
ewar supremacy
an unbelievably boring primary weapon system
the highly-overrated drake

fly caldari if you plan to do nothing but missions or want ewar. there are very few other reasons. also, lol @ the person calling the chimera the repper carrier. the nidhoggur is the rep carrier.

Paying my shipyard bills on time and to the penny.

Cruise and torps are fine for black ops drops on ratting BS's and carriers Cool

A long time ago when we had different stats for the races and there were learning skills and this game wasnt called Muppets in Space...

Caldari were renowned for macro miners (fastest race to a hulk if I remember correctly)

And terrible Dreads back when they mattered.

The falcon is your best bet for EWAR. If you got a falcon, you got a tear extraction mechanism. Its efficient and causes people to lose their ships while your side loses none.

Not even your cheap t1 fast tackle.

why does noone like the rokh. It is the second sexiest ship in the whole game (right after the machariel). I recently found one in one of my hangers and fitted it and it performed in incursions pretty well!

Your gang won the fight... BECAUSE OF FALCON.

EWAR will easily win a small gang fight single-handedly, and *greatly* influence any large fleet battle. However, an EWAR ship is a flying target, and odds are, even though you just won the battle, you're probably going to be flying home in a pod.

The Blackbird is the "intro to EWAR" ship, and the Falcon is the "You lost the second I decloaked, bro" ship. The Scorpion is the fleet battle equivalent of the Blackbird, but is quite a bit more expensive for a ship that is almost certain to not make it home.
