Specifically engineered to fire torpedoes, stealth bombers represent the next generation in covert ops craft. The bombers are designed for sneak attacks on large vessels with powerful missile guidance technology enabling the torpedoes to strike faster and from a longer distance.

Developer: Lai Dai

Lai Dai have always favored a balanced approach to their mix of on-board systems, leading to a line-up of versatile ships.

Summary

The Manticore is the Caldari Stealth Bomber. Its unique selling point is its high CPU, which means that, unlike the Nemesis, it can comfortably populate its 4 mid slots. This makes the Manticore arguably the best solo torpedo bomber, since it can use its mids to fit EWAR modules to prevent a target from fighting back.

Skills

While the skills above will allow you to 'fly' the Manticore it is pointless to fly a Stealth Bomber without a covert ops cloaking device (Cloaking IV), or torpedo launchers (Torpedoes I).

Required to function as a Stealth Bomber:

Suggested Skills:

In addition, you will want to get missile launcher skills as high as possible, as well as Bomb Launching skills. These skills include:
