"suggest".

ArtyRokh would be pretty good if it weren't for the fact that CCP think Caldari ships shouldn't have nice things, such as powergrid.

Rokh: 15,000 base PG
Abaddon: 21,000 base PG
Maelstrom: 21,000 base PG
Hyperion: 15,750 base PG

A Rokh with two T2 RCUs still has almost 1500 PG less than an Abaddon or Maelstrom. CCP could literally straight up give the Rokh 7 low-slots and it still wouldn't be able to match the Mael's grid.

Next up: why everyone is flying Amarr and Minmatar BS in fleets these days, and you almost never see Rokhs and Hyps..

Its feasible, but as people have pointed out, the Rokh has a lot tighter fitting than the Minmatar BS, which makes fitting arties a struggle. Fitting three Ancilliary Current Routers would allow a full rack of Scout 1400's (so I assume it would work with one arty subbed for a shield transporter), but T2 are definitly out even with the fitting rigs. The obvious loss of tank for using fitting rigs is roughly offset by the resist bonus's from the hull, pretty much resulting in no appreciable difference whether you ride with a Rokh or Maelstrom (other than the aesthetic value of the sleek Caldari hull over the Minmatar scrapheap Wink).

Probably wouldnt go 1400's... Firing rate is just to slow without a bonus. 1200's or go ac. With with all the gyros it's still like what 36-37.5s ROF?

The whole point of fitting arty is to get alpha. 1200s have a disappointing alpha compared to 1400s; you might just as well fit 425mm rails.
