Dramiel Ólíkr Republic Fleet Firetail

I was checking out getting a Dramiel, they look like fun, are damn fast but oh boy are they expensive… so I decided to do a little comparison with the Republic Fleet Firetail as they have matching slot layouts and see how they differ. The two very similar non-blingy fits are below:

[Dramiel, Fast Tackle]
Damage Control II
Overdrive Injector System II
Overdrive Injector System II

5MN Quad LiF Restrained Microwarpdrive
Warp Scrambler II
Medium Azeotropic Restrained Shield Extender
X5 Prototype Engine Enervator

150mm Light AutoCannon II, Hail S
Rocket Launcher II, Mjolnir Rage Rocket
150mm Light AutoCannon II, Hail S

Small Polycarbon Engine Housing I
Small Polycarbon Engine Housing I
Small Core Defense Field Extender I

Acolyte II x3

DPS: 190 w/drone assist
EHP: 6.2k
Top speed: 5656 m/s
Sig Rad: 189m

[Republic Fleet Firetail, Fast Tackle]
Damage Control II
Overdrive Injector System II
Overdrive Injector System II

Medium Shield Extender II
Warp Scrambler II
5MN Quad LiF Restrained Microwarpdrive
Stasis Webifier II

150mm Light AutoCannon II, Hail S
Rocket Launcher II, Mjolnir Rage Rocket
150mm Light AutoCannon II, Hail S

Small Core Defense Field Extender I
Small Polycarbon Engine Housing I
Small Polycarbon Engine Housing I

DPS: 160 all turret based
EHP: 7k
Top speed: 4637 m/s
Sig Rad: 241m

The Dramiel fit comes in at a Jita value of approx 49 Million ISK versus the Republic Fleet Firetail’s Jita value of approx 14.5 Million ISK. You could likely bling the Shield Extender and MWD on the Firetail and still come in under the cost of the Dram which might even give you room to fit 200’s on her.

I’m leaning towards the Firetail as they are very cheap in comparison and for the same price as a Dramiel I could get a Svipul.

  1. It all depends on what you’re trying to accomplish. A Dramiel is ideal for dual-prop situations and for taking on larger classes of ships safely. A firetail is meant more to take on its own class, and tends to be better web/scram fit.

  2. I have always been a huge fan of the Dramiel and its still one of my favorite ships in EVE though it’s not half as good as it used to be in comparison with other frigs. My go-to fit for the Dram has been slightly different than yours.
    [Dramiel, Whee]

    Micro Auxiliary Power Core I
    Gyrostabilizer II
    Nanofiber Internal Structure II

    5MN Y-T8 Compact Microwarpdrive
    1MN Afterburner II
    Medium Shield Extender II
    Warp Scrambler II

    150mm Light AutoCannon II, Republic Fleet EMP S
    150mm Light AutoCannon II, Republic Fleet EMP S
    Salvager I

    Small Auxiliary Thrusters I
    Small Polycarbon Engine Housing I
    Small Core Defense Field Extender I

    Warrior II x3
    Warrior II x1
    Barrage S x2000
    Republic Fleet EMP S x1616
    Republic Fleet Fusion S x2000
    Republic Fleet Phased Plasma S x2000
    Nanite Repair Paste x51

    Speed is 5018 m/s with MWD and 1847 m/s with AB. I often use a zor’s implant and quafe to give it a bit of an edge. With that you get 2K with AB and 5496 m/s with mwd. EHP at 4,7K, dps 176 with my skills. But you are absolutely correct that its pricey compared to a lot of other ships. The svipul is better at the same price tag(or even cheaper).
