So ive been wondering if your numbers match the enemy's what is the best way to counter a light missile talwar fit ? ive read some of the other forums which suggest rail fit ships but I was wondering what else would be ideal for taking them out. thanks a lot

Depending on numbers and situation RLML caracals can do the trick, if not rail moas or feroxes work just fine.

1. Use a ship that has the same or greater range but has more dps*ehp.
2. Shoot outside their range.
3. If your ship can get hit by a Talwar fleet, then it's going to die unless you're chatgris. Then you can do pretty much anything you want and not die.

I've heard that Amarrian Vengeance used retributions to great effect.

Most likely because of the Amarr resists against Explosive. If the WTs had had another ammo type (thermal) it may have been a different story.

1. Damps.
2. Moar Damps.
3. Faster boats with equal / greater range.
4. Boats with longer range and instant damage application.

Yeah np.

If you really wanna make sure you have a good counter - Try 3 Talwar fleets.

our enemys soon found out we all had 2 a-type explo fitted assault ships. and quickly docked in rens and got thermal missiles as your prophisized however we just refit to omni tank and still did just fine. no losses

Long story short CFC had great sucess murdering Talwar fleets with Harpy Fleets.

Engaging a talwar fleet with something cruiser sized is generally going to be suicide. (a 70 man talwar fleet can 2 shot a caracal 20k ehp @ 50km.)


Basically though any instant dps doctrine can slaughter them. Tanks are meh.

T2 Assualt ships are the go to though due to resists sig tanking and the decent buffer you can get on one. Downside being losing 2-3 assault ships generally means you lose the isk battle.

If you have same numbers and ok about taking losses - rail corms or harpies. It takes time for missiles to hit target, so staying aligned and warping off once primaried may save few ships. Damps can help to mitigate some damage (think maulus).

Other option - bring talwars and be better at target calling (use 2-3 groups of missiles and hit 2-3 targets at the same time).


Options we were considering for fighting 20-50 talwars without taking significant losses - RML cerbs, rail feroxes, rail eagles, beam/pulse zealots. You will need 2-3 target painters, long range webs and 3+ t2 logistic ships.

Talwar fleet is very cost effective doctrine because you can get enough alpha even out of 5 mil meta 3 fit. So don't expect to win ISK war if you field t2 fits or t2 ships.
