I’ve had this Tengu for a long time. Lost two Tengus in the past (due to sheer stupidity and overconfidence , again) , but this one was gathering dust in my hangar for a couple of years. It was fitted for PVP , but never saw combat (Read: exploded without much effect to hostiles). At the time when it was needed , I already completed my training for stealth bomber. And if i needed a CovOps scout, the low cost of SB was preferable to a strategic cruiser. Anyway , in my last expedition into ORE space (which I survived … this time) , I came across signatures that I couldn’t scan down with reduced probe strength. More than a few of them. No idea why ORE space should have more difficult sigs , but here we are , unable to get that sweet 100% and warp arrow. A bit vexing, that.
So, what now. CovOps frigate has bonuses but is paper thin and lacks the ceptor align time and speed. It surely wouldn’t survive the face first dive into that smartbombing apoc from few days ago. Yeah, I know that could be avoided by scouting ahead. But I still want some measure of buffer when I fumble. New Sisters of EVE ships … if I want to have a ship with bonuses, I’ll take full lvl5 bonus and not 37.5% they’re sporting. And still lacking in skills to get the cruiser version. I mean … I can fly it , but that’s all. Time to dust off that Tengu and make it earn hangar space.
After some googling , semi-ripping off Ripard Teg and fiddling with EFT , I’ve come up with this :
[Tengu, Nebula Nostalgy] Warp Core Stabilizer I Warp Core Stabilizer I Nanofiber Internal Structure II 100MN Afterburner II 10MN Microwarpdrive II Large Shield Extender II EM Ward Field II Adaptive Invulnerability Field II Adaptive Invulnerability Field II 'Cetus' ECM Shockwave I Rocket Launcher II, Caldari Navy Nova Rocket Rocket Launcher II, Caldari Navy Nova Rocket Medium Unstable Power Fluctuator I Sisters Core Probe Launcher, Sisters Core Scanner Probe Covert Ops Cloaking Device II Medium Ancillary Current Router II Medium Low Friction Nozzle Joints II Medium Low Friction Nozzle Joints II Tengu Electronics - Emergent Locus Analyzer Tengu Offensive - Covert Reconfiguration Tengu Engineering - Capacitor Regeneration Matrix Tengu Defensive - Supplemental Screening Tengu Propulsion - Interdiction Nullifier Mobile Depot x1 Sisters Core Scanner Probe x8 Caldari Navy Nova Rocket x900 Nanite Repair Paste x200 Relic Analyzer II Data Analyzer II Cargo scanner II Scan Rangefinding Array I Medium Shield Bosster II
Traveling dual prop fit to get into deep null. Shield resists 73/90/85/75 , battleship class afterburner to keep the speed after MWD gets shut off by scram and align time of approx 4 seconds. Should be enough , unless i crash into Competent Gatecamp (TM). After that I’ll switch invulns for Relic Analyzer II & Cargo Scanner II. Cargo scanner for Data sites , to see if they’re wort refitting for (faction blueprint). Let’s boldly go … erm, wrong lore.
