In YC 116, Mordu’s Legion intelligence reported to command that the Guristas pirates were developing new and advanced strike craft capabilities using unknown technologies. In response to these reports, Mordu’s Legion accelerated a program of ship development that was itself a response to trends in capsuleer tactics and warfare. The crash development and manufacturing effort resulted in a new family of fast strike ships integrated with one another to provide tactical flexibility and firepower across ship class lines.
Gallente Frigate bonuses (per skill level):
The Garmur is the Mordu's Legion frigate added in the Kronos expansion. It is high speed dedicated missile ship, with a large bonus to warp disruptor and scrambler range, making it an excellent kiting ship. Its modifiers to missile velocity and flight time combine to give it 50% more missile range. This means it can quite effectively "rocket kite" by firing precision rockets up to 20km, as well as a more conventional light missile kiting strategy.
The high speed and warp disruptor range bonus on the Garmur make it a good skirmish scout and initial tackler in fleets, competing with interceptors for the job. The main downside is of course the extra expense, given the role doesn't have a very high life expectancy, and it is also missing the significant MWD signature bonus that interceptors get.
Further information about additional or recommended skills to pilot the Garmur for a specific or it's common role(s) can be written here.

The Garmur can easily solo some cruisers, such as the Thorax and Vexor. Its long point/scram range (to at least 36km) allows it to sit in a gate camp and tackle the cruiser when it decloaks. The microwarp drive allows it to sit well outside the cruiser's optimal range, speed-tank most weapons used against it and easily outrun medium and heavy drones. In addition, the cruiser can't outrun the Garmur to break the point/scram. Depending on skills and the number of drones deployed, if the cruiser uses webbing drones, the Garmur's top speed may drop to just below the microwarp speed of a cruiser. In a solo engagement, this would be a momentary distraction while the Garmur pilot destroys two or more of them, which would reduce their effectiveness sufficiently to allow the Garmur to outrun (or overtake) the cruiser.
