PvE Raven with Torpedo changes - How is it so far?

Anyone got a fit?

Haven’t’ tried the plane jane Raven, but the CNR and the Golem are absolute monsters with torpedoes. With skills alone I get 44km on faction ammo, but with better application and DPS than fury cruise missiles and a larger magazine. Just fit an MWD so you can make range, but getting to 44km isn’t hard.

ive been messing with the fit below. Can swap the cap booster for another computer if you want but the gains are negligible and i like to have the cap buffer

On a side note, Rage Torpedoes are still worthless. Even in the Golem with doubled up application bonuses, their explosion radius is too large to apply even to battlecruiser sized rats. Faction torps still hit BCs harder than rage torps. They also have a higher velocity, so they’ll get to the target faster and cause less wasted volleys. Rage torpedoes still need work.

nah, it’s good as it is. Rage are supposed to be used on bigger targets. Their ratio damage/sig is lower than faction on purpose.
Still the golem can make them very efficient with two painters.

Bigger targets than what? Battleships? So they’re only good against capitals? Void seems to work fine against battleships. So does hail and scorch. But Rage torps, those are only for capitals, right? They aren’t “good as is”. They’re absolutely terrible.

Make your own homework.

No it does not unless you have application modules, web mainly.
good luck hitting a BS with void at 25km on a non range-bonused hull.
