Requesting fit feedback - BNI skirmish boosts

I haven’t used boosts since their rework. Asking for ideas in chat just yielded generic PvP fits. Hoping to get feedback from a more experienced fleet booster.

Design goal: Skirmish links for kitchen sink fleet. Expected fleet numbers 30-80, 40-100km range, sub-bs, with T1 logi support.

Budget 200m. I already have the BNI hull gathering dust so i slightly prefer using it over other hulls.

What’s the reason for the sig amp and sensor booster? If you don’t mostly gatecamp with the ship you won’t need the scan resolution or targeting range, providing nice free slots, the combination of 2 different sized plates also seems weird to me as you usually either go for more resistance with a single 1600mm or for alot of buffer with 2 of them, using fitting rigs and sacrifices in other slots to make it work.
Regarding your medium slots the medium battery is a bad choice for battlecruisers, that module is more usefull on destroyers, a medium cap booster would work there.
The target painter makes sense as a ranged fleet support, personally i’d prefer a warp disruptor.
I love having 2 skirmish links on BCs that are only meant to have a single utility highslot like on this brutix https://zkillboard.com/kill/63108959/, I also do that with my Gnosis, nothing wrong with that, but the Tractor beam and bad downsized guns don’t seem very efficient.

Here is a quick build, you could switch the disruptor for a sebo to get your 100km lockrange but at that range this fits damage is useless without magstabs

Thank you for the constructive feedback. By dropping the 800mm plate I have enough resources for more resists, better guns and mids. Thanks also for showing me that collapse feature.

Looks more solid, I dislike the reactor control, there is usually a better option when you just play around with it long enough, maybe because damage is not the focus here it does make sense to downsize the guns and drop powergrid mods.
You also have alot of resistance in the lows already, trimark rigs will improve your tank more then the anti-explosive. The ingame tool always calculates your EHP from your weakest resistance so it may not look like much in game.

Thanks, will look closer, but I prefer the armor build for logi support

Drop the lower armor plate and replace with armour laying, this give a good HP boost without the reduced velocity.

The other option is throw on instead an adaptive nano to boost armour resistance higher.
