This Setup is in a Gang only.

6x Siege Missile Launcher II

2x Invulnerability Field
1x Heavy Electrochemical Booster -800
1 X-Large Shield Booster II
2x Shield Boost Amplifier II's

3 BCU II's
1 Alpha Reactor Control: Reaction Control
1x Co Processor II

2x Core Defence Capacitor safeguard
1x Anti Em Screen Reinforce

1x 3% Implant

With my Skills this gets me 665 Tank, and 740 DPS. ( Still Training Missile Skills)

What improvements can I make?

In before Active Tank Suxxorz.

This appears to be a straight 'tank and gank' setup.
You have no mobility at all, and you are relying on your gang to web, point and paint?

It'll work. Provided you do have the support to web, point and paint. And assuming you don't expect to have to move in real space, to get out of a bubble, or close up with something that's been webbed just outside your torp range.

However I'm assuming you're posting on a forums to solicit opinions, and I am a man of many opinions.

I don't like flying ships without microwarp drives. I've just had too many situations where I've needed it.

I would also suggest you look towards ancillary current routers as your rigs, and fit some heavy neutralisers.

Also, T2 injector fits 5x 800 charges, rather than 4, which is handy.

An alpha reaction control is a bad idea. It's only a 5% RCU, where a power diagnostic system is the same. Or a 'normal' reactor control is 10%. Even if you're that tight on CPU, I'd lose drop a shield boost amplifier for another hardener instead.

Oh, and don't forget the drones :).

Gang wise I prefer:

6x Siege II
2x Medium Unstable Neuts

3x LSE IIs
2x Invul IIs
1x TP II

4x BCU II
1x DCU II

3x Core Defence Field Extender

3x Berserker SW-900

1000 DPS and 127k Effective HP.

Range can be an issue - no MWD and 30km range, but with javelins you can hit up to 45km and that's enough tbh.

This is assuming that you have someone to rep you for you right? Like a Bas or a Scimy. Or are you trying to pull a caldari version of the blasterthron off?

Fit an MWD and consider a shield buffer tank for pvp

Judging from the need for a MWD/People who say fit a Buffer Tank

I've tried this out

Same Highs

2x Invul Fields
1X 100Mn II MWD
3x LSE II

3 BCU II
1 PDU II
1 DCU II

As a torp pilot ive had a little fun designing these :sarcasim:

Well if your relying on painting(not so good unless you have someone you really trust with quick reactions to paint for you) its not so bad - nice tank btw.

Now the rigs -
2 x rocket fuel cache partitions
1 x hydraulic bay thruster

With my skills that gets me to 39k with high damage torps, 59k with long range

as a note: 2 painters for high damage, 1 for long range seems to work perfectly fine.

also i have a 5% velocity implant in that char.

Just get useto being called in as fire support once your tacklers have done their thing and you will be fine. For anything less than a BS(and even then sometimes) use your javelin torps and the damage vs them is pretty damn good.

Ill have to have a play with your setup on my raven ;)

Actually, I use Painter Drones for my Painting Needs.

As For Rigs, I slap on 3 CDF Extenders. This nets me almost 30k Shields, and 123 k Effective HP.

Are you in a fleet or solo?

Its a nice effective, but your range is rather limited :s Although i admit i do remove the range mods for some setups(dual navy smartbombs for one).

For the drones 2x25, 2x10 and 1x5 yeah? I havnt tried those yet, how effective are they?

6x Siege Missile Launcher II

1x Target Painter II
1x Warp Disruptor II
1x Remote Sensor Dampener II
1x 100 NM MWD
1x ECM Multispectral Jammer
1x Sensor Booster II

3x BCS II
1x PDS II
1x Multi Sensor Backup Array II

3x Warhead Calefaction Catalyst I

Gives 830 DPS and a speed just under 1000 m/s

An odd setup, but you may actually fool someone.

This setup fits...barely. Please note that I have maxed fitting skills.

6 siege II with Caldari Navy torps
2 frigate guns or salvagers/tractor beams

1 XL C5-L shield booster
1 shield boost amplifier II
1 invulnerability field II
1 quad LiF MWD
1 heavy cap booster II with 800's
1 PWNAGE target painter

2 ballistic control II
1 damage control II
1 reactor control II
1 co-processor II

1 anti-EM screen reinforcer
1 anti-kinetic screen reinforcer
1 anti-thermic screen reinforcer

5 hammerhead II
5 warrior II

This ends up with 54/76/72/63 resists if I remember correctly.

What can you possibly jam effectively with an unbonused and non-amped ECM?! You should at least have a signal distortion amp or an ECM rig - and you're gonna want to have more than 1 jammer, because in most likely hood you're not going to get many if any jam cycles before you're shot to pieces with 0 tank.

A single RSD? Again to do what? Your target will still be able to lock you since you're at short range with torps, you're a BS so a lock time script wont help much either. Either go with 3 RSD's or don't use 'em.

I don't have a problem with fitting EWAR on a Raven - but for God's sake, focus on something - you're just slapping every EWAR you can, a jack of all trades and a master of none.

You'll get a surprised reaction from some with that setup for sure (as in wow that Raven dropped fast!)

Not burning you bro - just trying to say if you think outside the box - make sure it is still effective at your surprise tactic - the setup you posted is not.
