Force recon ships are the cruiser-class equivalent of covert ops frigates. While not as resilient as combat recon ships, they are nonetheless able to do their job as reconaissance vessels very effectively, due in no small part to their ability to interface with covert ops cloaking devices and set up cynosural fields for incoming capital ships.

Developer: Ishukone

Most of the recent designs off their assembly line have provided for a combination that the Ishukone name is becoming known for: great long-range capabilities and shield systems unmatched anywhere else.

Summary

The Falcon is the caldari force recon, designed to fit a covert ops cloaking device and ECM jammers. It lacks the ECM range bonus of the blackbird, but has a superior jam strength bonus. While the Falcon has a medium hybrid damage bonus this is often completely ignored in favour of utility modules or anti-drone weapons in the high slots, since the falcon's damage is negligible at best.

The Falcon can support a shield or armor tank, usually a single plate or large shield extender. A falcon's primary defense is to pre-align and decloak at optimal jammer range, do its work and warp out and recloak if targeted by more than it can handle with its jammers.

The ability for the Falcon to suddenly decloak and cause a big swing in small fights has led many to call it overpowered in small gang warfare.

Skills

Train cloaking skill to lvl 5 to minimise sensor recalibration time. See cloaking wiki for more information Cloaking#Sensor_Recalibration_Delay

Tactics

Notes

When something goes horribly wrong in fleet and/or you suffer a loss due to a terribly lopsided mechanic, it is customary to exclaim, "Because of Falcon!", regardless if there was any involvement of a Falcon, or any ECM ship, for that matter.

Example: "My dog ran away and my house burned down BECAUSE OF FALCON!"
