First, I know some will say "Ravens suck as solo pvp dont use it" but I was thinking more along the lines of a solo pvp ship where you pick your targets carefully, oly engaging what you can catch etc.

What would be the best tank to use on such a ship, active shield? buffer like a drake?

No, really - there's no logical reason to do so unless you have an alt account for scouting / probing / bonuses (ie. a Tengu / Loki).

torps, point, web, TP(s) and burst tank?
Go for gank and spank.

No EFT at the moment so can't work a fit.

People tend to underestimate ravens, but if you fit a nice massive gank torp setup you can definatelly ge some bang for your buck in pvp if you pick targets selectively

Any setup though can have it's pros and cons, it just depends on the targets you want to pew and your preferred playstyle.

The thing that makes ravens great for solo pvp is the fact nobody will expect it to be pvp fit and everyone will assume you are a ratter/plexer and thus an easy target.

The problem there being you're a battleship, and as such most targets tend to pick you.

Also, solo raven is no go. Its a great gank ship, but not a good solo ship.

the days are long gone when a burn eden style raven would and could pull off solo work.

i have toyed with a fit like this however and enjoyed it:

6 x cruiser launcher (best named as im low missile skills)
2 x neut (8 highs from memory)

1 x warp disrupt
1 x sebo 2 (scripted sensor)
3 x ecm multi spec
1 x 100mn mwd 2

4 x bcu

drones to taste, though ecm recommended, obviously pick your ferkin targets

fun but maybe not good ;)

my missile skills are truely dire so im limited to what i can do with a raven but have had some sparring with other bs and it hits hard and keeps it jammed...

but anyways like i said its fun, not so functional... your better off with a better ship

I've done some solo PVP with:

Raven
6x Siege II, 2x Med Neut
100mn MWD I, 2x Invuln II, Painter II*, Scram II*, Web II*
4x BCU II, DC II
3x CDFE I
5x Hammerhead II, 5x Warrior II

* I may have used best named - I remember fitting is really rough with it.

It worked really well. My personal best with it was engaging 2v10 and winning. Cool

-Liang

Ed: It really does work best as damage support instead of Solo PVP - but I've used it solo and it works about as well as any solo BS does. The EHP on the Raven is just a bit low with a configuration like this, and I'd really love to get some more shield HP on the Raven.

sorry liang reported your post trying to reply...

the siege are great for the deeps no crap, but with my skills they just fart out like an old mans spunk down the leg of my ship and go to sleep not raping anything.

might want to add some ew rigs to it for extra pimpage
