Snakes are crap since the nerf, and why do you wanna go fast in a drake?

Halos are crap for BC they reduce your sig good for smaller ships.

IMHO Talon (not pirate tho) would be the best set for a Drake, they are cheap too.

Assuming you're doing the smart solopeeveepee thing and flying a kiting HM drake, snakes are absolutely the way to go. Makes controlling range and disengaging that much easier, and as mentioned, halos don't help so much when your sig is already the size of a small moon.

Talons are indeed a good idea, doesnt make invulnerable against a falcon dedicating all its jammers on your solo ship, but keeps you reasonably safe from those pesky ecm drones.

Snakes would really need to be a HG set to have a decent impact, but even that is ruined by a single frig in seconds.

HMLs, 2 nanos and 2 BCS in the lows, no DC2. At least that the one I use now.

I agree that talons are pretty sexy, but since your anti-falcon tactic should burning at them spamming F.O.F's and trying to bump them off alignment, snakes are really the way to go.

Watch scan for frigs, if you see one, start pulling range. If it gets within scram range it's within web range and should be dead in seconds. Killing tacklers for the blob is half the fun of a heavy missile drake.

It is a waste of money since caldari ships cannot be used for PVP. Caldari is only for missions and ratting. Train gallente.

talons would be third but only really if there was alot of ecm in the area.

a drake wont be able to kill the average ecm boat before its jammed and the target gets away, if your being blobbed you have done it wrong.
