im looking to run missions and am looking for the best caldari ship to do this, all comments welcome.
What level missions?
What sort of skills do you have?
Do you have even the slightest desire to PvP in the future?
Caldari ships are a blast to fly. But they take skill to learn how to fly well.
Caldari's strong points are shield tanks and missiles.
In that aspect
Kestrel (although there is an armor fit for it)
That are your major missile boats in the Caldari family.
Now me personally. I tried out several ships. I still have my destroyer which is a turret caldari ship and have fun with it from time to time.
For L3's my favorite ship is the Drake. With a good tank setup it is almost impossible to lose it in a mission.
For L4's I use the Raven. I plan on getting into a CNR sometime in the future but then again I have been saying that for years now /lol. I am always playing with my Raven's fit though. It takes a lot more work than the Drake but it is fun none the less.
If you are going to go the PvP/PvE route then the NH is a solid ship to use and can handle L4's as well.
One thing I recommend though. Get your core skills (and not what the certificates say are core skills) to at least L4. This will make fitting a lot easier and improve your chances at living.
I think I still have the core skills listed in my description in game. Mind you the NPC damage stuff may or may not be accurate anymore as I haven't updated my description in probably 5-6 years. Well not since before the first AT when the State Issued BS's were the prize.
