I'm looking for a new pvp ship and I decided to try out the assult ships. I'm not sure which one though, and I was wondering if I could get some opinions on which one would be better for pvp.

Harpy cause more dps, hawk better tank but poor dps Wink

Traditionally hybrid weapons are favoured in pvp due to higher DPS and near instant impact. Also, in the case of railguns, they have superior range allowing for the obvious benefit of long ranged assault.

So the harpy can spew out more damage and potentially engage at higher ranges (thereby allowing damage to be made before it is taken). The short impact time also means you might just get that extra volley off to pop the target ship before he warps out.

The hawk has a few tricks up its sleeve though.

Missiles always* hit (*if in range - though inty's can out run them sometimes) unlike hybrids which can miss when at extended range. For this reason I find missiles the more predictable option. The hawk has a slightly better tank and a much larger cargo bay. A cargo bay which can carry a medium warp bubble for example.

At the end of the day they are both cool ships and a few weeks of missile and gunnery training will give you the option of flying them both.

Both are nice AFs, Harpy is probably better dps wise, but missiles and better tank makes the Hawk very nice for gangs as a tackler killer.

So if you like rails and solo pvp go for the Harpy.
If you are a missile freak and pvp in gangs try the Hawk.
Or pick the one you think looks the best or get both.

Harpy unless you specifically go for single fast frigs (interceptors)

Four bloodclaw precision missiles can make any interceptor pilot think twice about coming near you. But if you like range you gotta love the 90km+ of the harpy. Or fit blastersTwisted Evil

I love the Hawk, and you can't argue the great tank.
