Level 3 mission ship fit?

Post by KJ Fluwell »

Hello all, about to hit lvl3 missions for Garoun Investment Bank. I'm skilled up to Cruisers (Caldari). Is there a god fit for a Caracal (Or Navy issue) or should I be skilling up to Battlecruisers? Any help in ship fit would be appreciated. :D

Oh this is for Security missions of course. :wink:

Ah the days when I did Level 3 Missions... :)
When I did Level 3 Missions, I did them in a Stratios. Bad idea, don't do that. I then used a Gila, but if a Caracal is what you are looking for try:
Spoiler
[Caracal Navy Issue, Budget Blitz L1-L3 (Alpha-Friendly)]

Ballistic Control System II
Ballistic Control System II
Ballistic Control System II
Missile Guidance Enhancer II

10MN Monopropellant Enduring Afterburner

Large Shield Extender II
Missile Guidance Computer II, Missile Precision Script

Rapid Light Missile Launcher II, Caldari Navy Scourge Light Missile
Rapid Light Missile Launcher II, Caldari Navy Scourge Light Missile
Rapid Light Missile Launcher II, Caldari Navy Scourge Light Missile
Rapid Light Missile Launcher II, Caldari Navy Scourge Light Missile
Rapid Light Missile Launcher II, Caldari Navy Scourge Light Missile
Rapid Light Missile Launcher II, Caldari Navy Scourge Light Missile

Medium Warhead Calefaction Catalyst II
Medium EM Shield Reinforcer I

Caldari Navy Hornet x5

Caldari Navy Mjolnir Light Missile x7500
Caldari Navy Nova Light Missile x7500
Caldari Navy Scourge Light Missile x14866
Missile Range Script x2
I used this exact Ship Fit just a few months ago to get my Standing up with the Caldari State Faction so I could go though the Penumbra Level 4 Epic Arc for the Wiki. :)

I suggest you push forth towards Level 4 Missions as soon as possible as their rewards are about 10x those of Level 3 Missions, assuming you want to do Anomic Burners Missions and Blitz. ;)
Then again doing Level 3 Missions in Null Security Regions ain't that bad either... :P

Happy Mission running!

If things are too expensive, or you don't have the skills trained yet for the T2 version, dumb it down a bit. Keep ready on the warpout! This ship is obviously designed to hit the enemy from range, so they have trouble applying damage to you, since your armor resists are low.

Hello KJ,

L3 missions are generally "Battlecruiser" sized - running them in Cruisers is definitely possible, but it requires rather good skills and fit. If you're skilled up to Cruisers, I'm guessing you do not have skills needed to pull off L3s in Caracal - so I'd suggest Drake, as next step up in Caldari ships. Even with Meta passive fit it can run L3s fine, and you should be bale to skill into it quite quickly - you're probably missing Caldari Battlecruiser and Heavy Missiles.

Myrmidon is also perfectly viable (as any other BC really), but take note that it's armor tanked - if your skills are skewed towards Caldari (Shields), then you might have some trouble.


Best,

Chris
