Any reason to use a Raven Navy Issue these days?

#1 - 2016-12-19 19:14:38 UTC
So I just returned to the game after a few years absence, and noticed it looks like the Raven Navy is outclassed in every area by the Barghest. It's slightly better in all area's other than maybe tank (and price these days).

Is there any reason to use a Raven Navy Issue these days? What am I missing?

CNRs generally generate killmails.

Barghests generally generate lolmails.

navy raven gets max damage without needing to train the BS skill. The BS skill is nice to train for the missile speed and application bonuses though. Barghest gets a 10% per level damage bonus so it needs a high BS skill level to get its damage.

That said I haven't undocked a CNR in a long time.
