will it be possible to solo level 4 missions with these? or maybe some easy level wormholes? (no idea how difficult wormholes are)

also how expensive will these new BCs be roughly?

they sound like they will be good vs super caps to me... good dmg low sig radius so fighters and titan XL guns cant hit.

Now I am by no means an expert at fitting a Tengu, but that fit the OP lost is just.....horrible....Of course you're going to die against anything that can hit you from further than 40km.

And in lowsec? I'm glad someone put that poor ship out of our misery.

CCP has stated that the new tier 3 battlecruisers are intended to be highly mobile (harder to hit than a battleship) snipers.

Facing-off one-on-one at close range is not their intended use.

Instead say 10 to 200 of them at 100 km (out of short-range optimal, and too close to warp), which the Naga excels at with railguns, is gonna make for some interesting battles.

Uh, a blaster Talos is in no way a sniper.

Then why are you insistent on putting blasters on it? Gallente use railguns too (425's fit really well).

Smile I'd imagine that the bulk of their work will be done at what most would consider medium range.

Which means that the Naga mentioned above will be able to use it's short range ammo.

Never fly what you cannot afford. If you rolled need on the Tanking Plate if you're a Retadin you'd be in the same boat. And that boat shouldn't be a T3 Cruiser, from the sound of things.

i could see the cattle bruisers as a good whelp fleet ship. I bet 200 of them can kill things relatively fast while still being able to traverse the starmap like battle cruisers. Maybe we should call them the batphone cruiser.

What do you guys think about using the Tornado for vanguard sites?

It has 55.9K EHP fit with:
2x Invuln II
1x Photon II
2x LSE
2x Defense Field Extender
1x Anti-Therm Screen II

With 76, 72, 73, 77 resists. Coupled with a sig radius of 248 and a speed of 281 m/s.

The recommended Hurricane fit has 59K EHP with same resists, 290 sig, 206 m/s.

So.... Tornado should hold up fine yes?




You will hear logi pilots start sounding like healers in that other MMO whenever a "DPS Warrior" not specced for Defense/meat shield joins the group.

Hey I made a new word. "FAIL-HOLE". A "fail-hole" for when fail is so Supermassive it sucks up completely any belief in the existance of intelligent humans.



not sure but i dont think tier III battlecruisers are meant to fight 1400mm machariel while stationary at their optimal.

instalock, gank machariel on active tanked tengu with something 6k ehp without resistance mod on ?

Tornado would do the same for 1/20 of the price.

I love all the theory crafting here.. put a tornado in the worst scenario possible, against a Sensor-Booster Sniper Machariel @ Max Range.. because you know, your going to just sit there and look at the damn thing, unpointed, and wait for the 2nd or 3rd volley... Roll

Anyone can be a victim, and the fight always comes to you when you least expect it (otherwise you wouldn't have lost anything amirite?).

I doubt you'll be able to do level 4 missions very well with the new battlecruisers. Drake can do those because of it's bonus to tank, something the tier 3's lack.

I would imagine prices to be a few mil less than a tier 1 bs (when prices have stabilized). They only require medium rigs however.

Because if they weren't then they would be battleships.
