Development
In YC 113 Empress Jamyl Sarum I challenged Amarr ship manufacturers to build a new battlecruiser that would break the stalemate of the Empyrean War. Deviating from the doctrine of brute-force and heavy armor, the engineers at Viziam took inspiration from Caldari history.

During the Gallente-Caldari War, the Caldari developed light, maneuverable ships to counter the slow ships of the Gallente Federation. This philosophy, along with a cutting-edge powertrain and ultra-light alloy armor plating, led to the Oracle.

The Empire immediately ordered the ship into production. The Empress personally congratulated Viziam Chief Researcher Parud Vakirokiki, calling the ship "a work of Divine Grace for the Empire, and retribution to our enemies."

Summary

There's nothing quite like a face-melting barrage of lasers from 250km away, and judging by the Oracle, the Amarr Navy seems to agree. This Attack Battlecruiser has a weak tank, like its comrades, the Tornado, Naga and Talos. However, it has the guns to meet the damage and (most importantly) range of anything short of the capital-sized beasts of lowsec. Because of their weak tanks, the Oracle and its buddies are often sniper fit to avoid close quarters confrontations.

Unlike the other attack BCs, the Oracle can also fit pulse lasers and use Scorch ammo and kite at 60km. This allows high damage and good tracking, while still remaining out of range of most ships with medium weapons. Loading Multifrequency and brawling is an option but usually a last resort for pulse Oracles, making a shield tank for speed the more usual choice for this setup, though pulse armor Oracles are not unknown.

Tactics

Shield Megapulse

Mid range kiting, using Scorch this thing is a monster of applied DPS at ranges of about 60km down. Stay aligned to something at all times, the Shield Oracle is VERY Squishy. Try to stay as close to your optimal range with Scorch as possible, and switch to INMF or Conflag if something is getting quite close (30km or less)to burn them down ASAP. Getting tackled means death, so don't be afraid to pop that hero frigate your FC didn't notice that could screw up someone's day.

Armor Megapulse

Has higher tank than shield at the cost of mobility, and possibly range or tracking, depending on mid choices and loaded scripts. Theoretically a 2 TC Armor Oracle can have the same range OR better tracking (but at less range) than a Shield Oracle, however not using a cap booster negates another of the Armor Oracle's pros, the ability to use a cap booster for longer engagements. Armor orac00ls are also much more flexible with tank, for example you could drop a heatsink for another EANM, then swap the Adaptive Nano Plating to a resist specific plating (Kinetic vs Drake heavy fleet, etc).

Beams/Tachs

Less DPS than Megapulse counterparts at close to medium range, but more flexibility with falloff, and also able to go to huge range. Ideal engagement range is greater than 60km, vs 60km or lower ideal engagement range on Pulse. Again, stay aligned to something, as tank can end up quite flimsy with those big beam lasers hogging up a lot of fitting. Consider just going full range tank to maximize your beam's advantage at long ranges.
