I was about to say the hyena, then I realised I can't do much about 5 warriors, where this fit can. Same with the keres in fact. Mind you, the sentinel is pretty good vs drones, it pops its own.

Anyways enough about how I like eas'es, this is a really good fit for holding those annoying ships with drones until your fleet comes in, +1

Stiletto does this better. Embrace the hull tank, DC2, 3x OD2, scram, point, mwd, same highs (but ions).

Love this fit. Will it fit a M shield extender II instead of named?

Nice necro idiot. But no, a t2 mse will not fit.

What is a necro and why am I an idiot?

Thanks for the response, btw.

Actually, you can fit a t2 MSE if you also t2 the Micro Auxiliary Power Core.

OK, I am a complete newb. Can anybody tell me - why rockets? Just to have something working at long range?

Why do you think Stiletto is better? Just because it has the lower signature?

So this loadout came about playing around in EFT. It's common knowledge that the Ares is one of the fastest ships in the game. What is not common knowledge is that it is quite possible to fit a MSE on it and give it 5k EHP while maintiaing reasonable DPS(roflkets just for show).

You have a 5km/s interceptor with 5k EHP with 80DPS from blasters(which get tracking bonuses from the ship on top of top notch tracking) which is plenty to kill off pesky drones, which'll have trouble keeping pace anyway. The roflkets add another 16 DPS in EFT, but you likely will see almost none of that against fast moving drones.

Drones will die quick and you should have no problem avoiding damage when traveling 5km/s(7km/s overloaded) with a sig res of only 90m(Anyone remember shooting at vagas with missiles pre QR, welcome back). Toss on some cheap 3% implants and a Zor's Hyperlink and you get up to 5300m/s(7.6km/s). Add HG snakes on top and you'll get to 6400m/s(9.2km/s overloaded). If you happen to be flying with a max skilled, mind-linked Loki 7950m/s(11.5km/s overloaded).

This is not a dogfighter by any means, but it is perfect for holding down that Drake that you find ratting in a belt. It's fast, has substantial EHP, can effectively counter drones, and has a 30km base point from t2; you'll be hard pressed to find a better tackling frig(and pls don't say Dram I know, but this is way more cost effective for a throw away tackler).
