Nearing the tonne SP mark, I'd thought I'd digress into missiles for my minmatar cross training.

But prioritising bombers :)

So can anyone correct or confirm the skillz I list that I need please.

Missile Bombardment
Missile Launcher Operation
Missile Projection
Rapid Launch
Cruise Missiles
Cruise Missile Specialization
Target Navigation Prediction
Warhead Upgrades


ignore required heavy and standard.

Torps, not Cruise Missiles.
Was changed aeons ago.

target painting skills, don't recall off the top of my head what they are. And the covops skill;

or do you want missile skills in particular?

as mentioned before, torps, but don't bother with Torp specialization, Torp 5 will be fine as you'll most likely be using Arbalest launchers.

Minmatar Frigate 5
Covert Ops 1 (rec: 5 for max torp damage bonus)
Cloaking 4 (covert Ops cloak)
Bomb Deployment 1 (already mentioned)
Torpedos 1 (rec: 5 for RoF bonus)
Recommend Torpedo Spec 4 if you plan to go to T2 torps, faster RoF w/T2 launchers, access to higher damage/longer range torps)

I would also recommend you get some training in target painters. Aside from your weapons and cloak, they are one of the most often fitted mods on a stealth bomber, and will help with the signature radius/explosion radius part of the damage calculation since Guided Missile Precision does not apply to torpedos.

you'll wnat torp spec 4 even if not using t2 ammo. The rof of t2 launchers.


Depending on fleet, not all bomber roam fits carry bombs. Some are torps only. Drop that launcher, get lots of room for ammo. And loot from kills. Been the victim of torp only bombers....dps is still there to hurt you bad.

And you get som grid back to run t2's. besides...you learned toprs 5 for daamge, covert ops 5....whats a week of torp spec 4 to boost rof to tweak dps some more.



Solo bombers also not unknown to run well torp only.

Tiger and KV, get back in MD right now! What are you doing out of your crate?!

Remote Sensor Dampeners can be quite useful as well.

Related question: do all missile rigs also affect torpedoes?

Rigor rigs will not affect Torpedoes.

Ah, so rigor catalyst doesn't affect it but flare catalyst does?
Interesting. I was wondering what my SB should us.

Thank you.
