Which ship would be the fastest one (the highest velocity)?

Which ship has the potential to reach the highest sup-warp velocity, in this moment in EVE Online?

Dramiel I think is still the fastest sub-warp.

It just beats the interceptors.

I did not look into maximum sub-warp speeds for many years. Back in 2008 I was able to reach about 38.5 km/s in a Crusader. I am not sure there even was a Dramiel, back then.

Do you want to be maneuverable or just fly in a straight line? If you want the first, Dramiel is the ship of choice.

If you just want to fly in a straight line and be fast, you should look for the Punisher or Crusader.

Overheated, this Punisher goes 14681 without boosts or implants.

Overheated, this Crusader goes 15809 without boosts or implants.

I have seen some years ago, a video on youtube with a ship that reached ~50 km/s but this is all I remember.

Years ago you could fit more than one propulsion module at a time. Stacking multiple mwd’s gave some rapid movement.

Gold magnate

Their capacitor doesnt last long enough to be of any use. On the other hand 500mn MWD T3Cs have plenty of fitting and cap to be cap-stable and semi-useful:

Quite possibly Gold Magnate, which has a base speed of 656 (all V skills), and low slots for overdrives and fitting modules to support a 50MN microwarpdrive.

What about Tactical Destroyers in propulsion mode?

That was yon olde days tho

It’s the Daredevil. You can fit an oversized prop on it because of the extra fitting. But, you need implants and it’s not stable.

Whoever said the gold magnate is correct, the fitting is as follows:
[Gold Magnate]
Corelum A-Type 50MN Microwarpdrive

Navy Micro Auxiliary Power Core
Cormack’s Modified Reactor Control Unit

Republic Fleet Overdrive Injector

With a full snake set + hyperlink, quafe, overclock 4 and no links it can reach 30km/s
With links + in a C6 blackhold it can reach a top speed of 61km/s

Edit:
Also bouncing from a sun in a thanny is pretty fast, i think the best i hit was 60 000 km/s?

Cute legion had one similar not fast enough and sluggish acceleration.


cold

hot

stable
purpose offgrid instaundock BM creation within minutes.
you can probe it but by time you land on result it is beyond targeting range no matter what ship or skill you have.

not sure what snakes pulsars quasars or drugs can do to it

What’s the point about oversized mwd? Because if it’s 5MN or 50MN, the same velocity boost percentage (510% - T2).

From https://wiki.eveuniversity.org/Propulsion_equipment :

The maximum velocity of a ship using a propulsion module is:
V_max = V_base × ( 1 + V_bonus × ( Thrust / mass ))

If Thrust wasn’t part of formula then all ships would have used 1mn ABs and 5mn MWDs.

I spawned in a stellar core in a wormhole and got ejected at 11c. Took my sigil nearly three HOURS to stop.


Taken approximately 2 minutes after spawning.

Slightly off-topic… but I believe the fastest ship in EVE was a dreadnought that was warped straight into the center of a star, then sieged.

If I recall correctly, because of the way mass factors into everything its speed was something ludacris… it flew halfway across the star system before coming to a stop in 5 minutes.
