navy mega is worth more cuz its more rare but vindicator should do more damage cuz it gets 25% bonus but mega has only 1 more low slot i think

But navy mega looks Better for sure Cool

I am going to make the dangerous assumption that if you are going to sit in to one of these you already have Gal Battle ship V so the fixed 25% damage bonus on the Vindicator is not a decider.

The N. Issue will hold its value better and has more armour. If you are going to go with total damage gank fitting then Navy Issue. The Vindicator is more versatile and the ultimate Blaster boat.

Neither Vindicator nor Vigilant get two direct damage bonuses.

Vigilant gets 25% flat damage bonus, 5% tracking per level of Gall cruiser and 10% bonus to MWD cap "penalty" per level of Min cruiser.

Vindicator gets identical bonuses, 25% to large hybrid damage, 5% tracking per level of Gall BS, and 10% MWD cap bonus per level of Min BS.

So with maxed skills the GN Megathron will outdamage the Vindicator thanks to the extra low slot, and would probably be the preferred rail platform. Thanks to the MWD cap bonus, buffed agility and extra mid the Vindicator makes the better blasterthron from what I've been told.

Never looked at a Navy Megathron, what's the visual difference compared to a regular thron ?

Depends, the vindicator would make a better blasterthron as it has more cap when fitted with a mwd. The navy thron would be a better gank-rail-thron as it can fit an extra damage mod.

I beleive they are both black btw.

Navy Issue Megathron is pure black, Vindicator is more of a black/very dark reddy brown camo thing iirc.

Actually, they are the exact same color/texture (along with the Federate issue mega)

Actually, unless it's been changed since I had them, Navy 'thron's skin is of a glossy, deep dark bronze color that changes depending on the angle you view it at. Vindi has a dark black, even an eggplant-like color.

You can't.. unless you're really, really rich (say, about 20-30 billion isk net worth). You can only get the Navy Megathron... by either buying it off escrow, or, by doing missions for a Gallente agent and getting 500k loyalty points.


Here are the stats for the Fedathron.

That's if you find someone willing to sell theirs... Unlikely at best. Well, I'd probably consider it for 20-30 billion if I had such a ship but... Bah.

doc brown just posted. he had one (think he sold it)
i think he recieved it for this

on topic, the navy mega has an extra low slot, and the same dmg bonus, so it can do more DPS

however, the vindi has another mid - meaning it can fit more EW or cap stuff

Yay... in 1vs1 and both ship fitted with blasters, i think navy thron would pwn vindicator... however vindicator is far more useful i think.

Cap bonus is just too sweet. Just ccp's salt in blasterthron's pilots wounds.
