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.

Summary

New Caldari players who enjoyed the missile-centric playstyle of the Kestrel have the option of flying the missile-flinging Corax on their way to piloting a Caracal, rather than being forced into the turret-toting Cormorant. With its range bonus and a bonus to explosion velocity that helps its missiles apply damage to small, fast targets, the Corax can threaten most frigates, from long ranges.

Skills

Being a Tech 1 destroyer and potentially a pilot's first step up from frigate hulls, the Corax is quite forgiving. Basic fitting skills and support skills are desirable. Missile Bombardment and Missile Projection increase missile ranges and synergize well with the Corax's strengths.

Tactics

The Corax's range bonuses push it towards mid- and long-range engagements. With honed skills and Tech 2 equipment, it can be fitted to project around 150 DPS at around 70 km, though this DPS will be delayed by missile travel time.

In PvP the Corax has some niche uses as a cheap long-ranged missile ship. When sniping, the Corax will have no way to pin its targets in place on its own, and must work with other ships. It lacks the high speed and MWD signature reduction of its rival the Talwar, and does not tend to be favoured for close-range or mobile work.

In PvE combat, the Corax can make short work of Level 1 missions, and can even attempt some Level 2s, though a Caracal will be a good step up for those. Pilots should remember that the ship has a bonus for kinetic missile damage.

Notes

Corax is part of the scientific name for the common raven, corvus corax; it was a Latin word meaning "raven", and was borrowed into Latin from ancient Greek. This makes the Corax a rare example of a ship in EVE which has a name meaning the same thing as that of another ship, the much larger Raven.
