Caldari Navy Hookbill
RELATED UNI-WIKI REFERENCES
Long struggling with a reputation for being the ugly duckling of the Caldari ship repertoire, the Hookbill recently got a new lease on life, being upgraded from a routine patrol vessel into a fleet-standard frigate. With the advancements brought on by the upgrade, the time is nigh for this little slugger to prove itself on battlefields throughout Caldari space and beyond.
Caldari Frigate bonuses (per skill level):
The Hookbill is the Caldari Navy faction frigate. It has 3 launcher slots and bonuses to missile velocity and (mainly) kinetic damage. While it is possible for the Hookbill to fit light missile launchers, most are fitted with rockets and take advantage of the velocity bonus to push their range out to near 14km. The Hookbill's main distinguishing feature is its 5 mid slots, allowing it to fit a variety of shield tank and tackle modules, which can make it an effective, if somewhat expensive, tackler or give it unprecedented range control in solo situations.

Because the Hookbill has five mid slots, it is one of the only frigates that can viably fit double webs. This can give the Hookbill outstanding range dictation, and, as rocket damage varies inversely with target velocity, allow it to consistently employ nearly its full theoretical DPS. Double webbing allows the Hookbill to stop almost anything in its tracks, and can even keep a
within killing range, something few ships are capable of.
