Good Angel Cartel Ratting Ship

Looking for a good angel cartel ratting ship can fly mostly gallente and caldari ships from frigs to battleships. My budget is about 300-450 mil (lower budgets are preferred :D). So cld u guys suggest any gud ratting ships i’m in scalding pass if that matters 3.5 m skill points (mainly drones and missiles and tracking and flying)

P.S. Also suggest a fit and the budget is inclusive of everything

The sad reality of eve today is just a myrmidon or gila (or ishtar when you get more SP) with minmatar drones.

how much wld a myrmidon make i’m not too interested in the gila because if i screw up (which i will) my hull insurance is gonna be bad also can u suggest a fit?

I’m pretty sure a Bellicose works great for ratting. It’s cheap and easy to replace.

I’ve used a dramiel for all missions thru level 3’s. 3’s can get spicy while learning to sig/speed tank :smiley:

For Angel belts, I used a Bellicose, but I found the battleships repped too fast for Heavy Missiles; instead I used HAM, worked much better. You need to push the DPS and rate of fire as much as you can for battleships, because of the reps. Here’s what I was using…

My attempts to use droneboats on Angels ended disastrously; Angels are brawlers with a rabid hatred of drones, and they will drop everything to munch on them. I spent more time retrieving my drones than I spent with them deployed, and they got chewed up terribly. I gave up on using drones on anything but frigates and destroyers, and even then, I went through a lot of them.

Rereading, if OP doesn’t want to use Minmatar (I use Minmatar cruisers a lot for doctrine reasons), I suggest testing out a Caracal with Nova HAM launchers. I tried a Rupture but I just couldn’t match the DPS I got with the HAMs and web combo, and I assume they might have similar results with a Moa, which would also be a damage type mismatch. The next step up would normally be the Drake, but the Drake, unlike the Caracal, is kinetic-locked and can’t take advantage of Angel vulnerability to explosive damage; hybrid turrets have the same issue.

Give this a try. I’ve been having great success running angel cartel L3 security missions in it.

thanks everyone this really helped :smiley:

Then just shoot them with kinetic. Even in the worst case (elite cruisers) the kinetic resistance is less then 20% higher then the explosive one, and caldari get 25% bonus on kinetic.

Most angels have only like 10% higher kinetic resist though.

The T2 Autocannon Ammo that is considered to be the tool of choice to shredd angels has a considerable kinetic component, too.
