Sunesis: anything good about it?


(March rabbit) #1

We have this ship for long time. I haven’t seen it in 0.0 where i live. Haven’t met it in low-sec when i visit it.

Any good pvp fits for it? Is it good for pvp at all?


(ITTigerClawIK) #2

ill be honest ive only seen 1 person flying it around in high sec.


(Kynami Vaille) #3

Bought one, fitted it… used it against some anoms. It works, but it flat out doesn’t have the damage you’d expect from a destroyer.

I’d have to say while it might make a quirky scan ship the price tag attached pretty much means you’d either be better off going entirely to a spec ops or astero or just sticking with the cheap as chips t1 scan frigs.

Basically it cannot deal competitive damage and it isn’t reasonable isk for scanning against the benefits of a covert cloak or just being instantly replaceable for under five mil.

It actually makes a fairly decent scram-kiting destroyer with a 10MN Afterburner equipped to it:

[Sunesis, *10MN AB Scramkite]
Damage Control II
Gyrostabilizer II
Gyrostabilizer II
Co-Processor II

Warp Scrambler II
10MN Y-S8 Compact Afterburner

Small Processor Overclocking Unit I
Small Ancillary Current Router I

Or you can always run it with blasters and a MWD with slightly more DPS/tank:

[Sunesis, *5MN MWD Blaster]
Damage Control II
400mm Rolled Tungsten Compact Plates
Magnetic Field Stabilizer II
Adaptive Nano Plating II

Faint Epsilon Scoped Warp Scrambler

last one I saw died in 2-3 volleys :stuck_out_tongue:

Not PvP, but it makes for an excellent hauler/salvager, especially in Anoikis. Largest cargo space (>2600mˆ3) of all destroyers with a proper fit. Not many tractors/salvagers possible, but 4 salvager drones. Scan bonus.
Agile, but slow as hell.

I use mine for transporting stuff. Its pretty fast


(Kathern Aurilen) #9

Too rich for my blood to just do salvaging… If I’m gonna spend that much, I would probably just fly a Noctis.

I’m stuck as an alpha for the time being and just use a catalyst and atron and I very satisfied.


(elitatwo) #10

Show me your Noctis with 2s align time.


(Mortlake) #11

It looks intimidating. There’s that.


(Kaivarian Coste) #12

It’s a cheap Astero. Because of its scanning bonus, you can use it to scan down hacking sites and intimidate other explorers. Dunno if you can actually catch an explorer in it, though.


(Kaali Hurunen) #13

High agility. Thats why an oversize prop setup makes sense


(Dom Arkaral) #15

I only ganked once, lost my 5km Nado for a 550m strat, good trade imo :smiley:
