In YC114 each major empire faction, having been embroiled in a harrowing, extensive, long-term war, recognized the growing need for support and logistics functionality in their vessels during the kind of protracted interstellar warfare that might otherwise prove exhausting for its participants. Both Frigate and Cruiser-class ships were put under the microscope, and in the Gallente Federation the outcome of the re-evaluation process led, among other developments, to a redesign and redeployment of the Exequoror.
Gallente Cruiser bonuses (per skill level):
The Exequror was previously an unloved cruiser, with a large cargo bay but lackluster combat bonuses. With Retribution it was retooled as a dedicated T1 armor logistics cruiser, with bonuses to remote armor repair range and power. It is designed to fit 3 Medium Remote Armor Repairers in its highs and an armor tank in the lows. Getting the Exequror to be cap stable with 3 reppers and a good tank can be tricky with low skills.
The recommended certificates under the ships description is an excellent starting point:
- Core Competency Basic [Certificate]
- Armor Tanking Basic [Certificate]
- Logistics Chief Basic [Certificate] - To enable its remote repair features

As a remote rep ship your job is to keep your fellow pilots alive. Add your Fleet commander, any other remote repair ships and a few of your friends to your watch list. Open your fleet window and select the broadcast history tab. Your job is to lock up and put reps on anyone that broadcasts "Need Armor" or if you see a big red block where the green armor block should be with someone on your watch list. Ask your FC who you're going to "anchor" on and make sure to orbit that person unless told "Get out there and save him!" Use your ECM drones to jam out tackling frigates or anyone else the FC may designate as "bad".
Be prepaired to get primaried and exploded when the other guys realize you're a field medic. That fact is universal for any type of logistics pilot.
- A final note on the Exequror:
This ship is a great stepping stone, and when utilized correctly it can give a lot of valued play to a new player. It's even used by highly skilled players as a cheap logistics boat to rep posses or in high risk situations like null sec gas mining! Just don't expect too much from it and keep in mind which ship you want to move onto next.
