So I just got myself into a Hurricane with T2 guns and I haven't used it so far (was waiting on the t2 guns)
I had a question I got these two fits (see below) and was wondering which one would be more effective
in small gangs (I do a lot of militia) or even solo work. Also please ignore the absence of drones
since they are not under question here

Depends what you want to do. If your armour compensation skills are decent, then the first one is GREAT to use as bait. It's a brick that just won't die. Second fit you kinda fly like a heavier vagabond and is a lot of fun too.

See http://kb.pleaseignore.com/?a=kill_related&kll_id=67373

They primaried me and well... they got me down eventually. But it cost them!YARRRR!! the enemy hurricane got out with like 30% structure, our frigate pilot forgot to point him. :(

^^ I'd use that instead of your first fit(Alternate two medium neuts instead of Heavy Assaults)

Gives 55k EHP in game/69k EHP in EFt/Pyfa
714 DPS with faction ammo, around 750 with Hail.

Better than the Drake now that it's been nerfed.

With a few implants and switching a few mods and a single rig to the rate of fire rig in projectiles, you can make it have 1000 DPS overloaded, 900 not. Still have 40k EHP.

I've got AWU 5 and 425's won't fit, not nearly enough CPU/grid.

Not only that, but I'd probably use 220's regardless for better tracking anyway. Armour canes take about 5 years to align and on a ship without tracking bonus you'd probably get more applied damage from 220's. I haven't graphed the difference though, so it may be that 425's aren't as bad as I'm assuming. Regardless, you can't fit them anyway so it's a moot point. :P

Another fit I occasionally use as an even bigger brick is this. 100k ehp with my skills, can boost that a lot higher if you use some implants/all level 5.

I use faction webs on this one because far better range, and it's so damn slow you pretty much need them anyway. Remember you won't be taking on anything solo with this. You probably have friends next door or logged out on top of you. Not a solo-boat.

Im sorry, didnt mean to make it into a drake post, I just hadnt heard that it was nerfed. Im all for the hurricane and perfer it over the drake any day. I like the shield nano cane because i absolutely love the vagabond and it reminds me a lot like it.

However, i have used the Armor Cane to great success as well. So either option is basically just personal choice and play style.

The shield fit you posted is pretty much cookie cutter and very effective in small gangs/solo and gives you the ability to GTFO if **** hits the fan. But for the love of God, don't use hail ammo.

The shield one. A lot of small gang fights are done "on-the-clock" and the ability to leave, quickly, is priceless.

Armor Cane


Looks reasonable, although you might want to consider swapping the long point out for a second web and dropping the TE for another EANM. With two webs on a target you can quickly close up the range and tracking is going to be a complete non-issue. Perhaps adding a small neut as well. This is personal opinion and nitpicky stuff though.

And Hail might actually work as intended with double webs+scram on a target.

Nano Shield


Standard shield Cane pretty much. The mix between gyros, TEs and nanos is almost always a personal one. Also, named MWD is better than T2. Uses less PG and less cap per activation, which balances out the reduced cap penalty of T2.

I really, really hope the afterburner on that is a mistake.
