Even with the current condition of rockets, the Crow may still be a viable dogfighter.

[Crow, BATTEL CROW]
200mm Reinforced Rolled Tungsten Plates I
Damage Control II
'Halcyon' Core Equalizer I

X5 Prototype I Engine Enervator
Coreli C-Type 1MN Afterburner
J5b Phased Prototype Warp Scrambler I

Rocket Launcher II, Caldari Navy Thorn Rocket

5W Infectious Power System Malfunction

Small Bay Loading Accelerator I
Small Warhead Calefaction Catalyst I

100 DPS from anywhere within scram range, 4k EHP, neuting power, and kiting ability. Web ensures it gets full DPS against other frigates and the warp core stab actually makes sense in a sick sort of way if you think about it: the locking speed isn't all too important, and the locking range is still 20km. The WCS lets you escape from Crusaders/other LR frigates that would otherwise kite you and slowly whittle you down.

Only downside is naturally the lack of MWD, limiting its use to friendly 0.0 space/lowsec.

Thoughts?

I guess this is a troll, but whatever, might aswell entertain you for a bit.

The malediction does all your suggested setup does, but better.

EDIT: Almost forgot the important part. The malediction is still crap.

With an identical fit, the Malediction gets an additonal 1200 EHP, but it lacks the CPU for the Warp Core Stabilizer in addition to missing out on a significant portion of DPS.

Also, people are wary of AB Maledictions, people laugh at Crows.

Agreed, good attempt, just try to be more subtle about it next time.
