Those are flare catalysts, not rigor catalysts. They'll fit just fine. (75x2+150 = 300/350)

From your skill set your a skip and a hop away from HAC's which are the same basic price. This is kind of a niche fit but if you want to pull HAM's and are tired of Drakes it should do fine. If you want a good gang suppor HAM boat go for the Cerberus with it's stronger tank and double range bonus.

Being able to hit to 45CN and 68Jav where ever you are on the feild you are useful, have a strong tank good speed and a powerful Kick for cruiser and above targets. Your fit is very unfocused and won't bring much to the feild in a gang and will be chewed solo by Nanocanes. HAM Cerb has tank, gank and range for good DPS support.

I really wouldn't bother, the fit is too pricey and to schizophrenic and lacks a clear goal. You are using faction ballistic control systems yet named LSEs, a faction warp disruptor with a named web and so on. Why are half your launchers faction yet the other half T2? did you run out of ISK or fitting resources?

There is nothing wrong with faction fitting a Navy Caracal if you can afford it but it seems you are simply sprinkling expensive mods on for no real reason other than pimping when you should really be thinking about what performance benefits you stand to gain by using expensive mods.

The BCUs for example are fine because the clearly give more DPS than T2 but there is no real reason for the MWD when a named one is fine, you gain no extra speed from it and you don't have a cap intensive active tank that would benefit from the lower cap consumption and the reduced cap penalty. Then you use poor LSEs which reduce the survivability of the expensive fit and so on.

Also consider nano fitting it because that's the main advantage of the Navy Caracal, its very, very agile and fairly fast. If you want an expensive faction fit along the lines of what you posted here try this:-

Its much more focused and makes a bit more sense, its still overpriced for me though as I would rather use a T2 fit Cerb. Dropping hundreds of millions into a faction fit only gains you 50 DPS or so and I don't think its worth that, its much harder to fit the Navy Caracal with T2 fittings of course because it uses a lot more CPU and powergrid which is why I prefer the Cerb.

Still the Navy Caracal does make a good nano ship.

No, 25k ehp, 1500m/s and 544dps for 500mil?

You can do better with a drake. Any competent dual neut shield buffer hurricane will catch you and neut you out, and then you're dead if you can't MWD.

Since you were talking about tengu's in your other thread, just fly a buffer kite tengu. It will be as expensive as this, and have the same capabilities, (i.e. same speed, 100 more dps, same range), but it will have 5x the ehp. Far more effective.

You can switch the HAM's to HM's if you want. Don't use rage, they'll do **** damage, and have a lower range (27km)

Fly it with a snake set if you can.
