Built to represent the last word in electronic warfare, combat recon ships have onboard facilities designed to maximize the effectiveness of electronic countermeasure modules of all kinds. Filling a role next to their class counterpart, the heavy assault cruiser, combat recon ships are the state of the art when it comes to anti-support support. They are also devastating adversaries in smaller skirmishes, possessing strong defensive capabilities in addition to their electronic superiority.

Developer: Kaalakiota

As befits one of the largest weapons manufacturers in the known world, Kaalakiota's ships are very combat focused. Favoring the traditional Caldari combat strategy, they are designed around a substantial number of weapons systems, especially missile launchers. However, they have rather weak armor and structure, relying more on shields for protection.

Summary

The Rook is the Caldari combat recon. While other races' combat recons support 2 types of EWAR and often suffer from split weapons systems, the Rook is totally dedicated to ECM and missiles. It has a very respectable 7 mid slots, so is almost always shield tanked, but it must share these between ECM and tank. The Rook's low slots can either be used for Ballistic Control Systems to boost damage or Signal Distortion Amps to improve ECM.

The Rook suffers rather from being a jack-of-all-trades and master of none. When focused for ECM its damage is poor and it becomes an expensive Blackbird with much more tank but also a much shorter range. When fit for missile damage it loses a lot of ECM effectiveness and still falls far short of a HAC for dps.
