Yeah, my guess is the same. Only if I remember correctly it was tech3 frigs, not destroyers.

T3 Destroyers would be very, very nice indeed!

Someone else had a pretty good basic idea for T3 frigates, giving them some very unique (and much needed) roles.

Upscaling this slightly to a destroyer hull would also suffice, IMO. Destroyers need some love in a big way.

Anything about them? They're fine really. Any decent boost would start to move them into either assault frigate or cruiser territory. I like them since they're a bit different.

Small Rigs definitely Pulled destroyers out of the closet.

well we are lacking assulat destroyers perhaps allowing 4 rig slots on dessie might be a comrpimise

Not really:
Sig radius issues.
Fitting problems ( try to fit a catalyst with anything other than 75mm gatling rails or electron blasters, CPU is horrible).
Lack of fitting options, most could stand +1 mid or +1 low slot.

I do have an idea for T2 combat destroyers though.

T1 base ship bonus as standard obviously.
15% bonus to the racial resists.

3 rig ports (+1 over T2 ships )
T2 skill bonus :
5% less rig penalties per level.
2.5% CPU and Grid bonus/level.

These enhanced destroyers are alot more forgiving to fit and alot more versatile in general without encroaching on the pure surviveability of assault frigs or straying onto cruiser power levels. Since they lack the pure power or specialisation of most other T2 ships CCP could lower the cost of them ( interdictor price level would be too high ).

that makes some sense

additonal rig slot some additional hp. Perhasp room for a subsystem. They would be low on survival but would pack a punch. Perhaps have reduced ewar resistances

How about saving the destroyer chassis for a tech 3 destroyer that could have subsystems to make a heavy stealth bomber?? but this would only be worth it if CCP fixes the bombs. with the way they are now, you cant even kill a shuttle at point of detenation because they are a small ship. even if the shuttle is moving at zero

if you put more dps/volley damage into a SB like ship it gets too overpowered. a well timed bomb attack can devastate much larger ships already. same for the torps. this is good. if you add more torp launchers per ship, it becomes overpowered.

and about your complain about the shuttle, they might be one of the few ships that survive a bomb due to sig radius. but you wouldnt solo bomb ships anyway, would you?

2-4 bombs also waste bigger ships much easier. and then the shuttle should be dead aswell. ;)
