This is a fast brawler for closing in quickly to unsuspecting targets and getting up close and personal.
Top Speed is above 1,8 km/s (up to 2,6km/s heated).

How to pilot:

  • Try to start your fight at 0 or close in quickly to your target (overheat MWD and approach)
  • Have your Warp Scrambler heated and ready to scram your target as soon as possible.
  • Try to stay in range of your target (below 2km) and shoot your target with the Faction Ammo you deem the best pick.
  • In case your target has a web or manages to get out of range for you to effectively hit them, reload to Barrage and continue shooting, this will reduce the impact of getting web/scram kited at least some.
  • Use your Energy Neut as long as your cap is above ~30%. Especially if your target uses an active tank or energyhungry weapons like lasers.

Price: about 10m ISK
414 DPS heated with RF EMP S at 1,2km
330 DPS heated with Barrage at 2,5km (160DPS at 10km)
Speed: 1859m/s (2620m/s hot)
eHP: 7372

Resistance Profile on 30/20/40/50 granting at least some protection from EM Damage / Lasers while not significantly impacting the overall eHP.

Optional: The Medium Shield Extender can be swapped out for a meta variant if fitting is too tight.

Alternate Thrasher fitting, trading overall mobility and DPS for better tackle and tank.

How to pilot:

  • Try to start your fight at 0 or close in quickly to your target (overheat AB and approach)
  • Have your Web and Scram overheated if you have to catch your target at range
  • Try to stay within your optimal range (approach / keep at range against smaller ships or orbit for bigger targets)
  • Shoot your target with overheated weapons but be careful not to burn out your modules.
  • Cycle your Neut as needed.

Price: about 15m ISK
282 DPS heated at 1,2 km with faction shortrange ammo
314 DPS heated at 1,2 km with Hail (really just recommended against bigger / slower targets)
225 DPS heated at 2,5 km with Barrage
120 DPS heated at 10 km with Barrage
eHP: 10825

66/44/36/46 resistances on Armor. 400mm Plate + Rigs and T2 DCU grant a lot of resistance in exchange for potential DPS.

Replace 400mm Plate with meta / T1 in case of fitting issues.
