The only thing I can think of would be smurfing level 2s in amarr or something.

EDIT: If you're a calari pilot who can only use missiles.

I guess you can get a sniper fit between the increased speed and the Velocity Bonus.

I worked this up for you, but I don't know much about the ship.

2x Ballistic Control System II
1x Damage Control II

2x Sensor Booster II
1x Y-T8 Overcharged Hydrocarbon I Microwarpdrive
1x Large Shield Extender II
1x Target Painter II

4x Heavy Missile Launcher II

1x Medium Calefaction Catalyst I
1x Medium Hydraulic Bay Thrusters I
1x Medium Warhead Flare Catalyst I

Gets close to the same DPS and Range of a Caracal. Pick your own drones.

Even with my mightiest EFT Warrioring Skills, I can't come up with anything worthwhile. The Drake does Tank'n'Gank far better, the Caracal provides better long range support (especially in terms of cost). If you want something HAC-ish, you can make an inferior Cerb, with half the DPS and lacking T2 resists. Is there a point to this ship? It makes me sad.

It doesn't even have the mining bonus of its base hull. Sad

Assault Missile Launchers (medium launchers using light missiles) and play to the 'lol osprey' factor trying to nail frigates. I would personally prefer Caracal or even better Cerberus for that, but frigates tend to run away from those.

Overall tho it's ship best used for station spinning.

Another good way to use one is Recon level 4 missions in the part with damage cloud. If you can't fly minmatar cruisers. Put good shield buffer on it and burn towards the exit gate if you want to blitz that part of the mission.

This ship is best used for low-sec operations in the context of faction warefare. Nano-fit it and gate camps should be no Problem for you.

I like them :) Put on a decent disruptor, and then you can kite close range slow stuff... because seriously what harm is an osprey?

IIRC, the Navy Osprey was released at the peak of the second nano age. On paper the DPS tank looked quite good, but its DPS were never really good. I don't remember if it had been put to good use back then, but I seriously doubt it.

During the nano age, it was an 8km/sec missile boat. It wasn't great - it still hit like a girl - but it was fast and had trackingless DPS.
Now.... well, yeah. It hits like a girl, and now isn't fast enough to get away with it.

These are priced much higher for a reason.

Much more grid, slots, base hp and an Armour HP bonus.

They are not great but not to bad, specially with Auto's.

We already had vexor, augoror, stabber and carcael the new ones that came in pretty much as nanos were nerfed were the osprey, scythe, omen and exequror and out of these they all stink but the omen.

Yeah but of the four we had before, only the Augoror stood out as being terrible, whereas the navy Vexor, Stabber, and Caracal are all pretty decent.
