I know we already have Fighters, but those are mining drones, but the lack of something better to call it…the closest thing we have to this idea are the corvettes/rookie ship, so I hopped on Singularity and used a Reaper to help me out. I came up with this:
Designed with the help of a Reaper corvette - adjustments will have to be made for the other empires.
Hypothetical Player Fighter - EVE Online
Bonuses: 1000% rate of fire bonus to racial turrets, bonuses to racial weapons.
200% ship velocity and inertia
Guns use ammo directly from the cargo hold
Module size: Small
CPU/Powergrid 120/15, may need to be tweaked
Cargohold: 30-40m3 (enough to hold 10,000 rounds of Small ammo)
+1 High - Gallente
+1 Med - Caldari
+2 Low - Amarr
+1 Low - Minmatar
Shield/Armor/Structure and bonuses: 150/150/150; adjusted for the other empires, 50-80% bonus to all resistances.
Signature Radius: 10m, adjusted for other empires.
There’s probably other attributes I’ve missed, but that’s the basics.
