Templars would be good, but I hear they can only be used by carriers.

Mostly Templars.

They're an Amarr fighter, launched, I hear, from carriers.

The minmatar one has the highest dps,i believe the gellente is the highest alpha(maybe caldari) but most carrier pilots mix.

I'm pretty sure the DPS is the same, just that the damage types are mixed up.

I'd go with an even-as-possible spread of fighters, try to gauge your opposition and deploy appropriate drones.

EDIT: Oh, and a possibility is to drop a single fighter and put in some standard drones (especially Warrior IIs).

Thanks man, yeah i guess the thing to do is probably just to have a mix of all of them.

Speaking of Freighters and Stargates, can Freighters go through Stargates? I've always wondered about that. I mean, they are capitals, and capitals use Cyno fields not gates. So why by a Freighter? Sure, it can haul a lot, but it costs a billion isk, and since it can't use a Cyno it can't leave the system!

As for the Fighters, ignore them.
Templars are overrated.
Use Oger IIs in your Carrier. They pwn.

(On a non sarcastic note, most people besides T2 Amarrians have their weakest DPS after tanking in Explosive. EM is normally the highest on armor tanks, but slightly lower then Thermal on shield tanks. Thermal is normally a good second choice for drones after Explosives.)

Freighters can use stargates. Also, whether a freighter is a capital ship is quite debatable. In many ways they're standard ships.

Im pretty sure it was like this:

Gallente, most DPS
Caldari, largest alphastrike
Minmatar, fastest
Amarr, very close to the alpha of caldari, I thought most HP aswell.

Just mix them all

I use the Minnie ones Due to Exp is the lowest tanked Res in armor (T1 ships in mind) Also the spread of Exp/Kin dmg makes me happy. But if u plan on flying carrier id go with a mix. I tend to use 6 and 6. 6Minne/6 Ammar. Full Dmg spread EXP/KIN/EM/Thrm. But that just me. Im a fool thou i still fly a Nid.

They're all the same, DPS wise. Some have higher alfa and longer ROF. Some have lower alfa but short ROF. Pick damage types that seem that they'll be most effective.

There was a slight anomaly in the dps of a while back, not sure wether it got patched or not, and the difference was increadibly small. I think it struck minmatar to have a fighter with slightly less dps.

What does differ is as you say Alpha, velocity and tracking. Contrary to other drones fighters do not have a constant ratio betwen tracking and orbit velocity. Oh, and price matters to some 7% or so. Other than that they're pretty equal.
