Seems to fit its purpose very nicely, and it's a drake that isn't completely identical to one I've seen before. There should be a FW tag so that the people who want to see this can find it easy (who all in gal militia is like man I need a ship to fly for L4s in FW where everyone says to use frigs I'll go to Battleclinic and check drake loadouts for some advice) AND we here at battleclinic should put together an FW training manual because the game sure as hell doesn't explain how it works unless someone around here has already done that.

I love FW, great pewpew and very profitable missions. But for newer FW members, a tutorial would definitely help.
Im sure there are articles that players have wrote about FW and the eve forums are always great for getting general help or advice.

no yeah tru dat but threads quickly get buried. I guess what I am saying is that I will compile a list of threads and fits with some reference materials to find the ones you want as well as a little general introduction text of my own, and see if I can post it somewhere so that it's easy to find in the future.

You're missing the whole point of this fit.
it's for SOLO work, for Gallente FW missions, you cant solo in a SB. the missles will kill you and the ECM will permajam you. It is impossible to solo a FDU lvl4 in a SB FOR GALLENTE. For other factions, I dont know.
And dont start with the "just get an inty to tank for you, blah blah".
again...this is for SOLO work. of course you can do SB/inty - everyone knows that

I didn't think ECCM worked against NPC, it certainly never used to.

yeah it was patched in tyranis i think. ECCM definately works against NPC now

Cloak trick is annoying for gate campers. It's funny when people screw it up though.

-1. ICD II on a drake?? And I'd drop the nanofiber. Just align earlier... I always keep myself aligned in missions, just in case. I'd possibly drop ECCM's too, I've been doing the same missions and I just blow up the rats that are causing the problem. Never stayed jammed. That way, you can use the slots to get more useful things in. I'd stay away from the PDSII if you can help it. I'm sure you'll be able to fit a better mission runner without the PDS.

DId you read the description at all??
The cloak is for gettin past gate camps in lowsec, when you run miossions, you're bound to run into camps.
And I'm calling your flat out bullsh!t on you claim that you run these missions in a drake without ECCM. it would take forever to kill the jamming rats, epecially for lvl4s. This fit is optimal, dont suggest 'improvements' when you have no idea what you're talking about

Premise:
This is fit is specifically designed to run LVL4s for Fed Def Union. For those who are unfamiliar with Faction warfare, all FW missions are in lowsec and are VERY profitable. The average lvl4 mission, with security connections trained to lvl5 (everyone should have it lvl5),  will pay off  25,000 - 30,000 LP and 2 - 3 million ISK - takes usually less than 10 minutes to complete.
A navy domi costs 150,000LP and sells fro aboout 310million ISK these days (shitty, i know they used to sell for close to 500mil). So clearly, after running just a few missions, this fit has more than paid for itself.
Some people use the Ishtar, or some other HAC to run these, or even T3s, but I feel it's not worth risking a 150million HAC or a potentially billion ISK faction fit t3 just to run lvl4s. This is cheap (50million ISK) and effective and minimalizes the chance of ship loss.

The Fit:
It's a tight one and IMO optimal for the purpose.

HMLs + Drones give about 400dps, which isn't a lot but for most missions you're only killing a single commander NPC or a few industrials - average 5-10 minutes
Cloak because you're in lowsec and will run into Pie or FW gate camps. Use the MWD cloak trick (youtube it for a tutorial) and you will skate past 99% of gate camps. The only thing you need to watch out for are ceptors  such as a Taranis which may burn towards you and decloak you before you are fully aligned... I've personally run into gate camps with ceptors and they've NEVER caught me. Cloaky drakes usually catch them off guard haha and by the time they try to burn for you, you're already aligned and ready to warp off.

ECCM. Well this one is obvious. Gallente FDU lvl4 missions face a TON of ECM from the NPC. without two ECCM you will be PERMA JAMMED. you will still occasionally get jammed with 2 eccm running but it's much less likely. I will usually get jammed once maybe twice during a mission with 2 ECCM.

Tank. kin resist (duh, caldari shoot kin dmg type) This will tank most lvl4s quite well but DO NOT accept the mission where you need to blow up a gate. incoming DPS is too heavy and takes too long. The missions where you have to kill a single commander or a few industrials are ideal.

The rigs are pretty self explanatory , PDSII and co processor are needed to make this fit work.
No damage control, you can drop a ballistic control for a DCUII if you really want but you will lose dps and not gain that much extra resist. It tanks fine without the DCU.

Flying. Pretty easy, I orbit at around 50km with MWD ON, you will still get hit by missles but not railguns. Do not get close to the BS rats, some will neut you, and some frigs will scram you. Start throwing missiles at the target.
Keep your 360 degree directional scan going, if you spot incoming ships, align to a celestial with MWD OFF. warp out, safe up and cloak if someone comes into your mission (they're obviously going to be hostile). Wait for them to get bored and leave system. then go back in and finish it. (this rarely happens)
 
Well thats pretty much it. If you're not familiar with the MWD cloak trick, i suggest you practice it.
I've been using this fit with huge success and have only lost it once (pie camped a rapier IN THE MISSION) lol but by then i had used this fit to sell a billion in navy domis already so it paid for itsself many times already.

Suggestions are welcome but like i said, this is pretty much optimised already.
Rate and thumbs up :)


EDIT:

REplaced T2 ECCM with best named. They are cheaper, use less CPU, less cap, and still same ECCM....

Replaced one LSEII with best named so that CPU would fit,
Added NanofiberII for more speed, faster align
