That's rather frickin' brilliant. They won't think to scoop their drones as they're not taking any damage, yet they won't be able to damage you.

Happy accident messing with Alliance mates on Sisi Big smile

The other guy had no idea why his damage was so low and even if they figured it out mid fight. Calling the drones in and taking the DPS completely off the field is the only thing they can do. In a 1v1 Gecko's always come in small numbers its not that hard to do Big smile

Geckos aren't very effective against ships smaller than Battlecruisers due to being slow and the aforementioned already poortracking. If you can orbit the Strat at anything over 1,500m/s he'll be forced to switch to mediums. If you're caught with web/scram, your best bet is to be fit with greater tank/dps (and I mean that mathematically).

There's always a bigger fish.

Guys, is stratios any good in general as a cloacky PvP ship ? What worries me is that 10 sec sensor recalibration delay !

Killing Geckos is always good anyway. Even if you lose the fight they lose 30-35m per drone.

That delay is reduced 10% for each level of the Cloaking skill. So, at level 4, the delay is 6 seconds. The covert T3's suffer this as well, and mostly it's fine.

Stratios can dish out some great dps for a Cov-ops boat, on par with the T3's, but it has a faction-cruiser tank, so it isn't the beefiest ship. The 5/5/5 layout gives great flexibility in fittings. Just fly carefully.

Also, everyone is overlookin the fact that the Stratios has a practically endless drone bay. You'll be trying to kill drones till downtime. Best bet is to kill or run off the hull, and then scoop those 30mil Geckos for your own use.Twisted

the way u get around the cloaking delay is by ramming the other ship at full speed to bump it out of align. You must be able to then kill the ship in question though or you've just fed them your stratios :p

Geckos hit even frigates if they're webbed, not every time, but considering they can pretty much volley them off field it's not a big issue. And there's really no reason why a Stratios shouldn't have a web.

They also go above 2k and have a 6k optimal, and drone speed rigs aren't all that uncommon. You need more than a 1.500 m/s orbit to force him to use something else really.

They have awesome tracking. In fact, they track better than most medium drones.

Omni links are a thing as well.

As demonstrated in the AT Geckos also have a relatively low sensor strength and can therefore often be jammed more easily than the ship carrying them (and again the Stratios pilot has to be very attentive to realise what's happening).
So (if you have a spare mid) there are a couple of ewar mods to consider.

That cries out for a cheap faction scram to match the web ranges. The DG scram gives an extra 1.5Km base range and saves a couple of CPU too. Last I looked they were about 20-25M.

A Caldari Navy scram is a nice poor person alternative
