Hey.

I was woundering if anyone could help me with a fitting for this ship, I have looked around but I have not found any good. I would like it to be a little overtanked I dont like to micromanage to much.

I have very good skills so I can use most equipment, I do now there is much cheaper ships for the task but I only fly ships I like and this one I like a lot.

My drone skills is exellent medium/heavy/sentry , and the secondary skills for this is also very good.

Here is an example to start with that I found :

[Kronos, L4s]

Tairei's Modified Large Armor Repairer
2/3x Specific hardener
3/4xFederation Navy Magnetic Field Stabilizer


3x cap recharger II
Batsion Module

425mm Railgun II, Caldari Navy Antimatter Charge L
425mm Railgun II, Caldari Navy Antimatter Charge L
425mm Railgun II, Caldari Navy Antimatter Charge L
425mm Railgun II, Caldari Navy Antimatter Charge L
3x Small Tractor Beam II


2x Capacitor control circuits


Salvage drone x3
Hobgoblin II x5
Hammerhead II x5

Pretty much. No reason to use a marauder without a bastion module. Going to want some sort of propulsion mod as well, whether MJD or afterburner.

4x Neutron Blaster Cannon II
1x Bastion Module
1x Drone Link Augmenthingy II
1x Small Tractor Beam II
1x Salvager 1

1x Cap Recharger II
2x Tracking Computer II
1x Large Micro Jump Drive

1x Large Armor Rep II
1x Tracking Enhancer II
3x Fed Navy Magnetic Stabilizer
1x Energized Adaptive Nano Membrane II
1x Damage Control II

2x CCC II

Marauders can be easily T2 omni-tanked & The only faction items used should be for damage mods.
This fit i use relies on using Bastion mode.

a Tairei's Modified Large Armor Repairer... Are you insane? xD

A regular t2 armor rep would do fine, but if you want bling, get a true sansha armor rep.

And then you put it as a mid slot item... I would suggest you learn why what modules are fitted so you learn how to use the fit instead of copying someone else's fit.

No prop mod or MJD plus rails will be painfully slow.

looks good, I just tend to go with 4 magstabs and 3 tracking comps. MJD and/or MWD depending on the mission. also you can easily swap the blasters for rails for some missions.

oh I also use a DCII instead of another EANM, the difference isn't all that big and it adds a ton of EHP on the structure. This mostly stems out of paranoia of a ganker taking advantage of a Kronos' explosive resist hole. I successfully (on test server) solo ganked myself in a kronos with my alt in a torp raven. Although this was before bastion, but hey pretty often it seems better to stay out of bastion to have that bit of mobility.

Way over tanked and too cap heavy, also you could stand to have more dmg and dmg application:

Blasters / rails x4
Bastion

TC II x 2
TC II / prop
Prop

Mag stab x4 (at least 3 faction)
TE II
RAH / decent EANM
LAR II

Burst II
Optional

Bling to taste. You may want to swap the TE or the 4th stab occasionally to fill the explosive hole (AE bonus room), but other than that ull be fine.

I cry a little bit every time I see a Kronos Rail fit.

Stop fitting rails to Kronoses. T2 Neutron fits with Null using a Bastion Module can insta-pop approaching frigates out to 60km and do ~80% of full damage to BS-sized targets out to 45km (optimal + 1/2 falloff). For anything that gets below 15km or so, swap to tracking speed scripts and faction AM and melt faces with over 1000 gun DPS.

Also, these outrageous faction/deadspace/officer tanks are wholly unnecessary. I use a mostly T2 tank (1x faction EANM because I had it handy), and I've never gotten below half armor on any mission. For that matter, I rarely have to cycle my armor repper twice in a row because each cycle reps about 1/4 of my total armor amount. All expensive tanks do is make you a bigger target to suicide gankers, or add to your loss if you get killed because of a disconnect while your Bastion Module is running.

EDIT: Also, please stop fitting multiple cap rechargers to PvE fits. Pulse your boosters/reppers, or fit a cap booster so you're not wasting slots.

with the new MJD bonus and awesome falloff Blasters are very very usable for nearly everything for sure! there might still be a reason out there to use rails somewhere in some space. blasters should probably be the primary focus for sure, but some rail use here and there might be tolerable. that said I don't think I've used rails on my kronos since the marauder update (but half of that is because I've been flying my paladin so much)

I like the rigs and cap mods in the mids. I bet they keep the officer repper pretty much cap stable.

The only thing I would recommend is more officer mods. It's silly just to bling the repper then go cheap with the rest.
