Only if the bonus involves defender missiles.

lol fires 5 defenders per charge and some how the figure out the code so they don't all go to intercept the same incoming missile

Maybe the dps mode should have the Mordu's style bonus...

Light missiles are already contentiously powerful. The T3 would be hideous with them Sad

nah the T3s would be lacking with two hybrids and the caldari would just wind up being a lower DPS version of the galente one just like the naga is now

The tactical destroyer class is called D3, T3s are the strategic cruisers.

shouldn't that be the sniping mode since its long range that is generally negatively affected by low speed

Not like there is any other choice for this hull... unless you want to go bomber-style with the bonuses.
My bet is on Light Missiles, although this is their chance to come with something really new :P

Rapid cruise missile launchers?

lol now you are just being sillyP

as for no other choice there is still a chance that they go with hybrids and that will just limit the options when it comes to picking a T3 desi once the gal ones are out

This is what I'm expecting, the Caldari ship will be a lesser used version of the Gallente version. I would like missiles, but I'm not really expecting a useful missile ship to come out...

if they go missiles then it would be a viable choice light missiles and rockets don't suffer from the same problems as the large ones

kestrel hawk corax and flycatcher are all really good in small gang or solo PvP

Good point actually.

Anything missile will end being practically identical to anything drone like but worse. Cos highslots.

how so?

missiles are rather different than drones

its if they go hybrid cal and hybrid gal that they will be almost identical with the gal coming out on top with better tracking and DPS if it follows the pattern.

If anything making it missiles could push them to do another balancing pass on them like with project and lasers

I was hoping for the Caldari one to have turrets, mainly because the Cormorant can't fit its guns very easily. Give me a Navy Cormorant or a Tech 2 version of the Cormorant, and I'll be happy. Alternatively, if the Gallente T3 destroyer gets an optimal range bonus and has targeting range higher than the Cormorant while in sharpshooter mode, I'll be happy to see the Caldari T3 destroyer have missiles. Will be nice to see more missile ships, though I think the one we really need to use missiles is the Naga.

i would much prefer the gal being able to fit either rails or blasters as well rather than pure blaster bonuses

it would give more options than two hybrid platforms



i would love to see the naga get missiles or at the very least have them fix the hard points so that turrets fit

Rapid cruise missile launchers?


Hehe..

But I would settle for tech3 missile launchers:

80 light missiles per clip, can only be fit on Caldari tech3 destroyer, 6 of course and a rate of fire like rapid light launchers and 10 second reload time.
I would call those assault missile launchers (wait hold on...).

And to give the Caldari a proper name, let's call her 'Revenge of the 100% application missiles destroyer'.

It should be a missile boat in order to to offer more player choice. The thing is, light missiles are quite powerful. An option would be to let it be so but gimp its speed. The thing is, like we see with the Phoenix, if you fix it, it's OP, if you don't it's gimp. Making a T3 missile destroyer will be quite a challenge.

I also think the Gallant boat should have drone bonuses as opposed to blasters. Finally a potent drone boat without sentries. Is it possible?
