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.
Amarr Cruiser bonuses (per skill level):
This Combat Recon is the undisputed king of capacitor warfare. Its range bonuses allow its hefty neuting capacity to reach out to an obscene range. This synergizes well with the standard Amarr TD bonus allowing excellent mitigation of any turret boat DPS, and the standard drone bonus gives cap free, high slot free, selectable and flexible DPS/utility. Expect to be called primary in this ship when flying in gangs; this ship is universally recognized as a huge force multiplier. No one wants to fight a Curse solo as the various advantages allows control of the fight to stay within grasp of a decent Curse pilot, and no one likes feeling useless and impotent for the duration of a fight.
The most common flavour is a shield tanked curse due to the six mid slots and the desire to be able to have the flexibilty of speed and the ability to range. Armour Curses are ridiculed by some but as gang support, backed up with Guardian logistics, they are incredible additions to the capabilities of the fleet. Curses are a great counter to logistics chains, both for RRBS and logistics ships themselves, and the added pressure of their neuts can mitigate or neutralize any practical cap transfer setup.
This is a ship that really needs its applicable command skill to V to be fully functional.
