I counter your proposal with my own.

It's a T3 Frigate called the Gunship class.

It's a Frigate just like any other, you only have one high slot, and it can equip a Quad 3500mm Siege Artillery I
cannon.

YARRRR!!


This is actuly an awesome idea. It would be better if it had 2 slots for regular guns though.

Yeah, much rather have 1-3 Large guns than even 1 XL gun. It would be like the gunnery version of a stealth bomber (fits BS sized launchers), except without the stealth, and without the bombs.

Here's my take: T2 destroyer, give it a decent take, maybe just a little lower than a cruiser so it is still a glass cannon, but doesn't die to engine wash. Give it a couple turret hardpoints and a decrease to the PG needed to fit large guns with the type based on the race who fields it (ie. Amarr get PG reduction to large Lasers, Gallente and Caldari get PG decrease to Hybrids and Minmatar ships have a decrease to Projectiles)

T3 Assault Frigate

Can fit: Super Capital Missile Launchers or Super Capital turrets

Missiles: 1500% bonus to explosion and velocity of all missiles

Guns: 500% Damage bonus and tracking per level

Has 1hp, 99% all resists in shields armour and hull

Base speed 1200m/s and has AB/MWD bonus: 0% cap/pg/cpu use and 800% speed bonus

1000M3 drone capacity, can launch 50 drones of any size at the same time, command range: 5 systems around your place

999% bonus to range and effectiveness of stasis webfiers and warp scramble modules

Immune to all forms of WF and non targeted warp disruption

Targeting range: has long has you can open the star map and click any system

Special ability: Improbable ships are instantly pointed in your D-scan and you can warp to them by right click and "warp to safe distance"

Do you think it's a little overpowered or need some improvements?

YARRRR!!

this is a god awful idea unless you require these frigs to enter siege status to fire.

The idea of an extreme glass cannon isn't without merit. The stealth bomber link is obvious, so I don't see any reason why there can't be a gunship frigate.

Will it have some ridiculous uses? Probably. And I'm ok with that

I would make into a T2 destroyer rather than a frig and give it a slight damage and ROF penalty.

screw T2 destroyers, T2 destroyers are interdictors. Rather go for Tier 2 (not tech 2) destroyers and just make them slightly better than regular destroyers.

I fit a Megapulse Laser on an Ibis once, it was forced offline but I got to see the Model. The Battleship sized gun was about the Size of the Frigate itself.

Dreadnaught won't fit on the Model at all since they are about the same size as Cruisers.
