EXTERNAL LINKS

The Corax adheres to the well-established Caldari design philosophy that there is strength in numbers, and that the messages sent to an enemy should be strong and unequivocal. This applies equally to peace talks as it does to actual engagements on the battlefield - there should be no doubt in the strength of Caldari spirit, nor in the fact that when one blow has been struck, others are going to follow.

As such, the Corax does not pepper its opponents with pellets from a gun, nor does it toast them with continuous beams of light. Instead, it delivers strong, hard-hitting payloads at a pace that's not only steady, but rapid enough to rock its targets and knock them off-balance.

As a ship, the Corax functions quite well as a sniper, with its large number of high slots. Since it has a small, fragile tank, it functions best engaging enemies at ranges greater than 20Km. By keeping enemies at range and using its nimble body to its full advantage, a competent Corax pilot should have no trouble running L1s and most L2s. This same philosophy has made the Corax a fearsome PvP destroyer, able to kite most ships with relative ease.

The Corax can be flown effectively with very low skill points and with minimum investment in the Missile Launcher Operation skill tree. As such, it serves as an effective introduction to the missile play-style for both new players and veterans looking to explore a different way of playing. However, for PvP it is generally ignored in favour of the
