After the resounding success tied to the launch of the Drake-class Battlecruiser, the Caldari Navy signed up a massive order to acquire a specific version for its own arsenals. The outcome, the Drake Navy Issue, while sharing a similar look with its step-father, serves a completely different purpose on the battlefield. Being more mobile, able to project missiles more effectively at range, against smaller targets and on a wider selection of damage types, this ship is ideal to support small scale conflicts and raids.

Summary

Introduced with the Odyssey expansion, the Drake Navy Issue (aka the DNI) is the faction version of the hugely popular Drake battlecruiser. It loses the Drake's resistance and kinetic damage bonuses in favor of more shield, two more launcher slots, and bonuses to missile velocity and explosion radius. The resistance swap for shield size slightly favors the DNI and improves with skills, but what really changes is the way the DNI engages targets. It gains a huge range boost, targeting and hitting targets past 70km with lvl 4 skills and heavy missiles. It does approximately the same amount of damage as the vanilla Drake, but now uses a variety of mission-specific missiles (which gives it equivalent DPS to all rats, not just kinetic-vulnerable ones) and deals much better with frigates. It's also faster and more agile due to weight loss.

However, you lose the high utility slot and your wrecks are going to be more spread out (because you engaged them further away), so a new DNI owner will probably stop self-looting their L3 missions in favor of completing them faster.

You can also equip your DNI with HAMs for a 100+ DPS increase at the expense of half your range, half your tank, and 10,000 EHP.
