Inspired by the results of our "Spontaneous Battleship Fleet"...

I will be taking another Battleship fleet out into Black Rise this Saturday, May 6 at 17:00.  Saturday 2:00 PM Eastern for our US bros.  Notice the convenient time for our European brethren.  For reference, we set out 3 hours before the CLT event.  

 

The concept is simple.  Bring a good BRAWLY "solo" BS sporting both STRONG Active Armor tank and a Micro Jump Drive (MJD).  No other prop mod required.  We will have 25% active armor boosts.  Also, we need at least 5 heavy neuts in fleet, so please fit accordingly.  At the bottom of our requirements, I would like to see a few smartbombs fitted to your high slots if feasible.  

 

MY BHAALGORN WAS FIT AS FOLLOWS:

 

Spoiler

 

This is what I'll be bringing.  It's cheap.  Bhaalgorns are selling at 100 million ISK below every other Pirate BS right now, and pirate BS's are super cheap right now.  Said and done, after paying for and receiving insurance, this fit is about 200-250 million ISK to lose.  I highly recommend bringing this fit.

 

Another of my favorite BS fits is this Tempest:

 

Tempest Dark Blood

Spoiler

 

This costs only 150 million after insurance.  You can drop the Dark Blood reps for Shadow Serpentis and knock another 40 million off the fit, making it an amazing buy at only 110 million ISK (total cost after insurance).  Also, feel free to drop the web for a Warp Disruptor II This is a good ship to bring on this roam.  

 

Tempest Serpentis

Cheap & Cheerful Myrmidon Fit

 

If you bring a Battleship, be sure to bring drugs.  In your hold you should have 2 Standard Exile boosters or better.  I prefer Improved Exile in terms of ISK value.  Make sure you have enough cap boosters and ammo to reload EM and Explosive a couple times.  Also bring 2 Standard Drop boosters in case we encounter a frigate gang.  Mid-grade Asklepians and RP-703 go a long way on these fits but are only recommended, not required.  

 

Please feel invited and encouraged to submit improved versions of the fits posted and/or your own alternative/additional fits with active armor tank and MJD.

 

MJD Battlecruisers are also welcome and invited.  We have a commitment for perfect 25% armor boosts, from a name we'll reveal last minute for op-sec.  We need commitments from interceptor pilots (plural).  No logi or damps will be required this roam.  ECM (Falcon, Blackbird) welcome.  If you can't bring an active armor rep BS with MJD then bring an active armor Battlecruiser with MJD, or ECM cruiser, or an Interceptor.  If none of those are possible then bring an active armor cruiser, like the dual-rep Vexor.  http://rvbeve.com/fo...rs/#entry163354

 

We turn into a pumpkin at 20:00 so I will be dissolving fleet at 19:50, docking all ships where we end up, maybe close to high sec.  So be on time and get your fits together by 16:30 in Jita (or Piekura) please.  We head out from Jita at 17:00.  (Due to intel reports, original low sec insertion will likely not be used.  We will form in Jita.)  

 

OFFICIAL ROAM MUSIC:  

 

DEEP PURPLE

'Knockin' at your Back Door

 

I can't deny it, with that smile on her face.

It's not the kill, it's the thrill of the chase.

 

UPDATE:  SRP!  10 million ISK Battleships?!?111

 

RvB has graciously offered to reimburse the first 4 battleship losses at at rate of 100 million ISK each!  I will chip in another 100 million ISK, and we will reimburse the first 5 battleship losses on this roam at at rate of 100 million ISK each!

 

 

This means if you fly the "Tempest Serpentis" detailed above, your losses will total only 10 million ISK!  Whaaaaat????  You heard right.  The first 5 battleships lost on this roam will be reimbursed at 100 million ISK to soften the blow.  Basically you are flying for free(ish), in a PVP battleship.  Keep it cheap, so we can (mostly) reimburse it and keep things fun.

 

Thank you RvB!

The Domi I took out the other night is this one (fitted for Asklepians & Exile):

 

Spoiler

 
The plate Domi is for Slaves and I wouldn't use Exile, the gain (with a single ancillary LAR) is pretty small versus the risk of rolling the -20/-25/-30 % armor side-effect. Antipharmakon Kosybo for preference.

Ah okay, I knew you had posted something suitable for this doctrine but I save all your fits and got confused.  I've edited the OP to reflect THIS fit.

Everyone please keep their fits reasonably low cost.  300 million ISK (after insurance) is as good a limit as any.  My Bhaal loss will only be 256 million after insurance.  Cheap fits mean I don't have to consider the fate of super-blingy ships when I make decisions on the fly.  Consider this a "welp" fleet.

A cheap & cheerful Myrmidon:

 

Spoiler

 

You can "buy all" in Jita 4/4 for 95 mill including exile. 14 mill to insure for 49 mill. Total loss 60 mill.

 

Oh yeah, with max skills Ogre II's + Void + heat = 666 DPS. Just sayin...

I thought every fleet was a welp fleet.

 

Actually, come to think of it, the most shit I've ever gotten after a roam was the Memento Mori fleet I had the gall to bring home...alive.  But to be fair, I didn't look up what Memento Mori meant until after the roam.

 

Anyway, yeah, you're all gonna die.  SNAFU

UPDATE:  SRP!  10 million ISK Battleships?!?111

 

RvB has graciously offered to reimburse the first 4 battleship losses at at rate of 100 million ISK each!  I will chip in another 100 million ISK, and we will reimburse the first 5 battleship losses on this roam at a rate of 100 million ISK each!

 

This means if you fly the Serpentis Tempest detailed above, your losses will total only 10 million ISK!  Whaaaaat????  You heard right.  The first 5 battleships lost on this roam will be reimbursed at 100 million ISK to soften the blow.  Basically you are flying for free, in a PVP battleship.  

 

Thank you RvB!

 

In recognition of this generosity, we will be spamming RvB memes throughout the galaxy during the roam, especially after fights.  Someone post that awesome link with all the RvB jpgs.

Yeah, in EFT I show all Vs at 715/735 CPU and 20,625.5/23,000 PG.  With Zen's skills (lacking Armor Rigging V) I have 20,739.44/23,000 PG, same CPU.  No implants.

 

Last night I decided to swap one of the Neuts for another NOS, but that does tighten up the fit quite a lot for CPU @ 733/735.  With the bonuses, those NOSes do a lot of work, but I still want one pure neut, which makes the neut pressure of 2xNos + 1xNeut almost equal to 4 unbonused heavy neuts.  

 

Re: The size of the Navy Cap Booster 3200, yeah it's a bitch.  But 800s just don't keep up with the dual tank so that's the trade-off.  They work great until you run out and then you DIE.  QUICKLY.  Bring as many as you can stuff in the cargo with a few reloads, drugs, and nanite.  Anyone want to bring a Crane alt to haul reloads?  :P
