The EVE University Wiki has a decent page that talks about travel fitting, supported skills, module explanation, and some sample fits towards the bottom. The wiki entry is located here:

I politely asked for thoughts on the fitting. Not having the thread hijacked to put a link to somewhere else.

No need for such a hostile response there bud. What Edhin said was good advice. The travel fits on the wiki work just fine. If you would prefer an MWD, swap one of the shield extenders out. If you want a cloak, fit the prototype. You've tried to make it tankier by fitting an active shield module and an armor resist mod. It's just not worth it as 99% of the time you will be in warp and you want that hyperspatial (you've removed an istab to fit the nozzle joints rig which isn't necessary). Also you've put a cloak on that is almost as expensive as the ship, it's just not worth it.

It was not my intention to hijack this thread. I often recommend references to our wiki as the forum and wiki are great tools to use together.

From your fit, it looks like you are trying to have a higher EHP travel ceptor. If that is your goal, I did some quick research on some fits:

[Ares, EHP Runner]

Damage Control II
Inertial Stabilizers II
Inertial Stabilizers II
Inertial Stabilizers II

Medium F-S9 Regolith Compact Shield Extender
Medium F-S9 Regolith Compact Shield Extender
Multispectrum Shield Hardener II

[Empty High slot]
[Empty High slot]
[Empty High slot]

Small EM Shield Reinforcer II
Small Core Defense Field Extender II

This depends on your skills, but it can reach over 10k EHP. There are some pros and cons here though.

The pro here is that you could survive probably a pulse of a smart bomb. However, you are easier to lock on to with two shield extenders and shield support rigs that increase your signature radius.

Sorry, Edhin.

I will take a look at the corp travel fittings. And I will apologize to you and the community for my rudeness.
You've been a help to me in Uni.

ps; I haven't tested this fit yet but it looks like a faster align time. So far, by far, the largest factor in signature radius is whether or not the MWD is online.

I do apologize. There is no reason to respond in the manner I did.

It is quite alright. We are here to help, help research, or share some experiences. Fly safe! o7

### Re: Opinions on this Interceptor fitting

You probably looked at the fits on the wiki but nothing is cast is stone.

If you deviated from the "standard" or "suggested" fit you really need to explain what considerations you made, what decisions you've taken, what the rationale was behind those decisions, and why you ended up with the fit you did. Otherwise it's hard for people to make constructive comments because they don't know what the thought process behind the fit was.

For instance, you may have limited skills and available ISK at the moment, so a prime consideration might be getting a fit that you could fly within your ISK budget. A person not knowing what those constraints were and just focussing on a "skills no issue, ISK no issue" "perfect" fit may be somewhat dismissive...

As they say, context is everything.

### Re: Opinions on this Interceptor fitting

A lot of folks in my corp like to fit a core probe launcher on our travel ceptors. The idea is that you can use Thera holes (and normal wormholes, sometimes, although the time tradeoffs to scan those is often not efficient) to save significant numbers of jumps when moving jump clones. While the Thera bookmarks are usually publicly available, sometimes it helps to have your own tools for that.

An Ares fit on those lines looks like this:
SPOILER WARNING!
[Ares, travel with probes]Damage Control IIInertial Stabilizers IIInertial Stabilizers IINanofiber Internal Structure II5MN Quad LiF Restrained MicrowarpdriveMedium Azeotropic Restrained Shield ExtenderEM Ward Amplifier IICore Probe Launcher II, Sisters Core Scanner ProbePrototype Cloaking Device I[Empty High slot]Small Hyperspatial Velocity Optimizer IISmall Hyperspatial Velocity Optimizer II

The only other thing is that if you have the skills to stay under the 2s threshold with it, using 2 inertials and 1 nano is better than using 3 inertials. The inertials bloom your signature, creating some risk that a true instalocker with very good ping could catch you on a gate. Going with a nanofiber instead of the third inertial makes this low risk extremely low.
