So I recently decided to get my mostly-industry alt into a battleship fit for gank to assist me in level 4s. He had both Gallente and Minnie cruiser skills at level 3 so I decided to go for a mega since it seems it's what people are using for gank while still being low maintenance. I gave the following fit a shot using EFT:

After looking at the stats I came to the conclusion that its dps was quite low compared to what I was expecting. Even my raven on my main with "barely-able-to-fly-it" skills can reach 400-500 with cruises if I'd fit purely for gank. So here's my question:
Did I fit it wrong? Keep in mind that my alt's combat skills are not optimal so I can't use t2 magstabs yet, so I guess that's one thing, but still.
Did I pick the wrong ship? I am equally close to getting a minnie BS so if there's one that excels for gank I'd be happy to know.
Should I just be happy with what I have and go wait until I have better skills?
Is there any other ship I should be using, that's sub-BS?

So basically what I'm looking for is something with as much gank as possible with a medium (40-20 ish) range. Preferably low maintenance since I'm running two other accounts as well.

Thanks for your time.

If you'd like, I know there are some Mega fits that i have on my mailbox from an old friend...He don't play anymore and i met him while hunting him for his bounty. (he used to be top 3).

So, I can check out some of the loadouts for mega's he gave me for some death and get back with ya.

Either way, shoot me a mail and ill see what i can come up with.

Drop 3 of the magstabs off. Due to the stacking penalties there not doing you much good anyway. Put 425's on, use the extra lows for fitting modules if necessary.

Also going with named modules, even if they're not best-named, can give you a lot more performance without costing that much extra.

Did you not notice while entering that into EFT that the last 3 damage mods (including rigs) didn't actually increase your DPS figure at all?

Hmm, I didn't know the stacking penalty was that severe.
Anyway, thanks a lot for the suggestions, I guess it's just me needing to improve my fitting skills then.

Try fitting reactor controls so you can fit a full set of 425mms. Then after 3-4 magstabs, just put in tracking enchancers. Then if stacking is bad, replace the tracking computers with AB+web.

I think this fit needs some gyros and heatsinks.
