This thread is just for you to share which Assault Frigates you feel would make a good pair for pvp

An AF duo is the main topic but nothing is stopping you from talking about HAC duos

Pair of Ishkurs. Kite targets at 20+ km, fire rails, let 10 drones eat them.

My cousin and I are currently using a Rifter and an Incursis with the intent of moving into T2 once we get the skills up. I tackle since I'm cap stable and we both dps. It's pretty fun. I love flying the small ships. I think eventually he'll move up into a T2 frig and I'll end up in an Ishkur.

in general this or go blasters and just gank the bastard. but railshkurs can eat up nearly anything. Till some dessie or AML caracal will land on the field.

I would fit tracking disruptor also to one of the ishkurs.

Must admit I like railkurs but in practice you have to really watch out for anything faster than you showing up.

I would maybe just go balls-out, fit blasters, tracking disruptors and get in close. Your DPS will be higher and 2x TDs should mean that even if one of you is web-scramed you should avoid too much damage.

The other nice thing about the ishkur is that it tanks quite will with a SAR.

His: Hybris
Med: MWD, Scram, TD
Lows: Tank or speed

Edit: Ishkurs do nutty dps and can tank well but they are slow. With two of you, if a fast target shows up you stand a much greater chance of catching them as they try to kite you at scram range - keep at ~12km orbit from each other and the target will probably fly through one of your scram ranges on their orbit.

id say harpy and a jaguar. jag levels a tackle, and just speed tanks as much as possible. harpy stands off and smacks up the target. not like theyre gonna do anything about it.

hac duos tho?
Sacriledge and deimos. sac tanks, die ganks. i dunno prolly wont work well in practice. maybe coupla ishtars

For two t2 cruisers of any kind, definitely curse + ishtar. Curse to disable, ishtar to dps. Of course, a well piloted diemos would also suffice instead of the ishtar... but it lacks the ishtar's much greater versatility.

A corpie and I run in a Jag and a Blarpy (blaster harpy). Works very well.

I love it when people plan tactics based on the actions of others... it's ingenious.

"sac tanks, die ganks."\

What happens if the diemost is tanking and the sac is ganking? diemost dies and sac runs away. lol Rolling Eyes

Jag for tackle, Harpy (blasters ofc) for raping.

For hacs/recons, maybe curse and vagabond. or BECAUSE OF FALCON

You could have more versatility with AF + EAF. How about Blaster Ishkur with a Sentinel?
