To Boldy Go…

September 27, 2013

… into my starship hangar….

I’ve been trying to catch up with the Rubicon information, second hand, via various websites and I was struck a little by the descriptions of the new Sisters of EvE ships. Besides the whole I want one, it was the long term/deep space exploration based around an armor and drone based hull that got me thinking that I’d seen something like that somewhere before.

And lo and behold, there it was:

H’s Exploration Proteus

High power

1x Sisters Expanded Probe Launcher
3x Heavy Neutron Blaster II
1x Salvager II
1x Small Tractor Beam II

Medium power

1x Relic Analyzer II
1x Data Analyzer II
1x Scan Acquisition Array II
1x 10MN Afterburner II

Low power

1x Damage Control II
1x Medium Armor Repairer II
2x Energized Adaptive Nano Membrane II
1x Drone Damage Amplifier II
1x 1600mm Reinforced Rolled Tungsten Plates I

Rig Slot

2x Medium Drone Durability Enhancer II
1x Medium Drone Speed Augmentor II

Sub System

1x Proteus Offensive – Drone Synthesis Projector
1x Proteus Propulsion – Gravitational Capacitor
1x Proteus Defensive – Augmented Plating
1x Proteus Electronics – Emergent Locus Analyzer
1x Proteus Engineering – Augmented Capacitor Reservoir


Antimatter Charge M
Sisters Combat Scanner Probe


Hobgoblin II
Hammerhead II
Hornet EC-300
Wasp II

The highlights are 42K EHP, most of that armor courtesy of the 1600mm plate, and over 600 DPS of which 400+ are by 4x heavy drones. I’ve chosen Wasp IIs because of their very high native shield strength, which in combination with the drone synthesis subsystem and the rigs, make for very tough drones indeed. There are cruisers out there will less effective EHP. If you want to be really silly with it, get caldari navy wasps or sentries. The damage is less (tracking is better), but truly stupidly tough drones.

Downside is that the all important sensor strength is not as high as it could be. With my skills it’s just shy of 125.

Essentially though this is a ship that, with some practice, you can be running sites at the same time as resolving all signatures in a system. Yes. At the same time. The only thing you need to be aware of is the damage your drones may be taking…. but a heavy drone going 2200 is going to get back to the bay fairly quickly indeed šŸ™‚

Obviously this is a high sec ship and there are some potential variations to make it something of a serious gun platform with the medium rail changes (change out the offensive and engineering rigs), but for a go anywhere and do pretty much anything exploration wise ship, she has been a favorite of mine for some time šŸ™‚

Have fun,
