Designed for commando and espionage operation, its main strength is the ability to travel unseen through enemy territory and to avoid unfavorable encounters.
Developer: Thukker Mix
It is unclear how Thukker Mix could master the intricacies of cloaking technology so quickly after the fall of Crielere. According to Professor Oggand Viftuin, head of R&D, the tribe managed to recruit some senior Caldari scientist that used to work on the Mirage Project at Crielere. Ishukone has denied this, claiming that the Thukkers aquired the technology from prototypes stolen by the Guristas.

The covert ops frigates have few differences, but the cheetah is slightly faster and more maneuverable than the rest, while having a below par capacitor. Its speed makes it the ideal covert ops frigate for creating tactical bookmarks and maneuvering behind enemies on grid for fleet warps and hotdrops. But the speed comes at a price. Its powergrid is lesser than that of the Anathema and Helios, its CPU and capacitor is the lowest of all four covert ops frigates, and it possesses four, instead of five, mid-slots. Consequently, a Cheetah needs more advanced fitting skills or an extra fitting module to achieve the same versatility as the other covert ops frigates.

No sub-article about Cheetah roles or piloting tactics. You can write them here.
The Cheetah (much like any covops) is cloak tanked. So despite rumors to the contrary, use of shields, or armor tank mods isn't needed. Rule #1: If you've been pointed in a cheetah, you've done something very wrong.
