Dusting off my Tengu

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.
