Hjá Kólf-skot

Decided to mess around with Osmium, an EFT/Pyfa type fitting tool that is browser-based, and make up some Cruise Missile boats so that I could compare them easily. Each ships fitting is fairly similar so the comparisons should be ‘even’, at least on paper.

View Raven – Cruise Sniper

View Raven Navy Issue – Cruise Sniper

View Typhoon – Cruise Sniper

View Typhoon Fleet Issue – Cruise Sniper

What did I take away from the comparison? Here are a few of the basics stats…

Sniper Comparison

Now while that is some fine data and an okay base for some comparison each hull has it’s own set of bonuses and specific ship attributes which will play into their actual on field application.

Raven – Caldari Battleship bonuses (per skill level):

  • 5% bonus to Rapid Heavy Missile, Cruise Missile and Torpedo Launcher rate of fire
  • 10% bonus to Cruise Missile and Torpedo max velocity

Raven Navy Issue – Caldari Battleship bonuses (per skill level):

  • 10% bonus to Cruise Missile and Torpedo max velocity
  • 5% bonus to Cruise Missile and Torpedo explosion radius

Typhoon – Minmatar Battleship bonuses (per skill level):

  • 5% bonus to Rapid Heavy Missile, Cruise Missile and Torpedo Launcher rate of fire
  • 5% bonus to Cruise Missile and Torpedo explosion velocity

Typhoon Fleet Issue – Minmatar Battleship bonuses (per skill level):

  • 5% bonus to Heavy Missile, Cruise Missile and Torpedo damage
  • 5% bonus to Large Projectile Turret rate of fire

I won’t delve too far down into the nitty gritty of each hulls bonuses or their attributes but there are a couple of biggies to cover.

  1. The RNI gets a bonus to Cruise Missile and Torpedo explosion radius. You add in a Missile Guidance Enhancer and/or a Missile Guidance Computer with a Missile Precision Script and the application of its DPS to smaller ships will be significantly higher than any of the others.
  2. The TFI has an advantage with pure DPS, its Missile Volley Alpha of 6179 is impressive and it’s the only BS of the lot that can field a complete flight of heavy or sentry drones.  However for small ships or fast moving targets its application of DPS will likely pale compared to the others due to its lack of an explosion bonus or explosion velocity bonus.

Although a fleet of TFI’s and a few pilots flying the Hyena could be a deadly combo to those small/fast ships – well any of these ships with some support Hyena would be nasty!
