Hi all,

I am relatively new. I have about 2.8 mil SP, mostly in learning and spaceship command. What I am shooting for is to become a stealth bomber. I in the process of skilling up for a Gallente Nemesis, in about 1 week I should be able to fly one.

My question is, what kind of load out should I be shooting for? Is there a site that has a list of possible Stealth Bomber load outs? I only ask so I can see where I need to skill up to become viable ASAP.

Thanks for any input. I attempted to search the site, but the search results were... inundating.

use eve-search.com

Also as a stealth bomber, you will want to be able to fit

-Ballistic Control Unit
-Target painters
-Torpedo launchers
-Sensor boosters
-Covert ops cloaking device
-missile rigs, they help you do a lot more dps for a very small investment
-if you're planning on going into 0.0 space, bomb launcher
-nemesis = gallente frig = damage control

Tech II preferred, although you will often fit named because of fitting issues.

But, the SB is a pvp ship basically, and pretty hard to fly solo. As a dps support you will want to go lvl4-5 on most skills right away, including covert ops to be able to fit everything on. It's not that great a ship to start out in, they are very fragile and their damage output relies a lot on skills.

You could try checking out Scrapheap Challenge, which generally contains better fits than Battleclinic, to get some ideas.

Thanks for the input.

So, so follow up questions.

If the SB is a not so friendly ship to start out in, what would be a good role? I eventually would like to pursue that type of role, but in the mean time...?

Also, when you say that I would end up fitting "named"... what does named mean?

Newb... yes... I know. Razz

Get in a Stealth Bomber and then look up Dirt Nap Squad (DNS).

P.S. Sounds like recruiting, but it is not. If you want to learn to fill that role, we can help.

skills you should ahve that relate to the bomber (from my experience atleast, and this is aside from all of the fitting, grid, etc. skills)
for starters without taking too insanely long:
Torps 4
cov-ops 4
rapid launch 4
missile projection 4
warhead upgrades 4
target navigation prediction 4
weapon upgrades 4

This will allow you to get a good amount of use from arbalest siege missile launchers (easier on fittings than T2) and around 50km range on your torps. A good place to start as far as fitting goes is 3 arbalest siege missile launcher a cov-ops cloak and a bomb launcher. mids I go target painter, warp disruptor 2 and a mwd, then lows its a overdrive, Ballistic control system II, and co-processor II to make it all fit.

all of the missile support skills shouldt take too horribly long just to get to lvl 4 to atleast pack a good punch, with my setup my bombers good for around 480DPS with nothing missile related to lvl 5.

Why do you need a TP? Are you bombing cruisers?
Shield extended BCs like Drake and BSs are quire ok without a TP. You better use that mid for smth else.

As someone else whom will be going stealth bomber (manticore in my case, found a yummy fitting with tech 2 torp launchers) I will look into the dirt nap squad. Heard alot of good about you guys:)

A better alternative is interceptors - you'll need to do some work on your navigation skills but you will find benefits to that elsewhere. Being good as an inty pilot isn't easy, but if you join a 0.0 corp that does PVP if you can fly an inty reasonably well you're likely to find a place for yourself.

As for 'best named' that means the best T1 version you can get.

Thanks all. Good advice.

Looks like I will be checking out DNS in a week or so when I get into a SB. Gives me some time to re-familiarize myself with the game.
