I'm Gallente so I'm asking fans of the Gallente ships. Which cruiser do u like best? What role do u favor with it? How do u fit it? (don't give away ur secrets. be vague. i.e. speed tank, drone boat, etc.) Not just the battle hardened pilots, I want to hear from the indies too.

And Go

We're talking Gallente, so obviously it's gotta be a drone boat.

Gallente are the pet class of eve

Deimos / Thorax.

Too many fun experiences had in both. Drones are almost as boring as Missiles IMO.

Thorax in this fit. With Hammerhead Drones.

About 500 DPS, 40k EHP. Brutal little boat that makes the 1600mm Rupture a relic.

What? No, that was the Rifter and its T2 variants.

Also, another favorite Gallente ship: the Velator. Completely OP when compared with the other noobships.

Edit: Oh derp, it says cruiser. I'll let myself out now. Also, Thorax.

I meant the thread specifies Cruisers.

I fly Incursus and Rifters and the Incursus looks tiny now even with the lance.

thorax is probably the best. only thing is that you can rarelly take on anything bigger than a cruiser. reason is no real tank and cos you got to plate it, you wont go fast by anymeans.
vexor is really no more than a drone ship that once targeted it will go fast. so you got to deploy drones and hope you can outrun your target. you can use this very effectivelly for ratting. when i started, vexor was my ratting ship and it did the job well.

Ishtar - Passive shield / sentry fit for ratting
Vexor - for cheap PvP... "holy crap! how many drones you got in that thing?!?" (recall / redeploy drones) I managed to get a Myrmidon down to 1/4 structure with a properly fit Vexor before he popped me.

Tactical destroyers... I'll take a dozen Gallente, please.
