Capital ship fittings - Carrier edition

Capital Ship fittings threads, post-citadel, the second. This time: re-vamped carriers, CCP's new "wouldn't it be cool" feature of the month.

General notes:
  • A carrier without fighters is a hulking chunk of useless. Fighter damage bonuses help you win the fighter war, so the Nidhoggur and Thanatos are really good, especially since they also bring additional drone bay space. Bonus shout-out to the Thanny's fighter HP bonus in addition to that.
  • T2 fighters are amazing. Use them if you have the skills needed.
  • Shield fits appreciate bling. Deadspace invulns can replace two T2 invulns, freeing up a mid slot for a Cap Battery or fighter support module.
  • Familiarize yourself with fighter controls in advance. Undock the fighter control UI from your modules, switching back and forth is inefficient. If you select fighters, any motion commands you give (right-click etc) will instead be executed by the fighters. Manual orbiting fighters is very powerful to mitigate damage. Practice this beforehand, you don't want your first encounter with the fighter UI to be a combat situation.
  • Light damage squadrons' Torpedo Salvo ability packs quite a harsh punch on a fairly long cooldown. Use them as you would any alpha doctrine - in concert with everybody else to annihilate a target instantly. Coordinate with your fellow carriers.
  • Interceptor fighters are great at taking out other carriers' fighters before they take out yours. Remember they have limited numbers of them - if you take out their fighters, they're big hulking chunks of useless. Consult with your cap commander on whether they would prefer your fighters shooting ships or hostile fighters, and listen for switch commands.
  • Mobility abilities are amazing, but the cooldown is fairly long. Don't burn them just to shave one or two seconds off the initial travel, you might need them to switch targets rapidly or pull fighters back in to launch a different squadron.
