This guide aims to provide an overview of the different ships and their roles rather than specific fits. For these, take a look at the individual ship's page (eg Atron).

Gallente General Information

The Gallente Federation is one of the four playable factions and has a unique and distinct line of ships.

Skills

For general skills that benefit all pilots, see Basic Skills and Support Skills.

Every pilot should think about which skills they want to train in order to reach their goals. The following only touches on basic and essential skills and should only serve as a guideline.

One may also want to check out the certificates system within Eve. It serves as a handy reference for if you want to train for a specific task or role. Note that completing a certificate does not give any boosts or bonuses, they are (for now) merely suggestions. They may be accessed in-game on your character sheet, in the "Certificates" tab of the "Skills" section.

Ship Command Skills

In order to fly a ship, pilots must train the appropriate skill for that ship. For Gallente these include:

Fitting Skills

In order to fit almost any ship effectively and efficiently, certain skills should be trained:

Capacitor Skills

For Gallente ships capacitor is important for active armor tanking, propulsion modules, and hybrid weapons. Certain skills can be trained in order to achieve an optimal size, recharge rate and efficiency for a ships capacitor.

Mobility Skills

Main article: Mobility skills

Mobility skills increase the agility and speed of a ship, which can be a lifesaver, even for the most cumbersome of ships.

Armor Tanking Skills

Main article: Armor Tanking skills

Gallente ships are generally designed to armor tank. This means that it is necessary to achieve a certain level of proficiency in armor support skills, including eventually being able to fit T2 armor tanking modules. To do this, following skills can be trained:

Weapons Skills

Hybrid Turrets
Main article: Hybrid Turret skills

To maximize the effectiveness of hybrid turrets, pilots can train:

Drone Skills

Main article: Drone skills

Many Gallente ships can fit drones, some even specializing in them. Pilots planning to use drones, or fly a drone boat can train:

Additionally, depending on the type of drones planned for use, type specific drone skills are required:

Corvette

The corvette is the first ship you start with. If you are Gallente, it will be a Velator. A new corvette is given whenever you dock at a station where you do not have any ships. Rookie ships are not particularly strong, although are useful for the initial tutorials and as a free shuttle.

The Velator class corvette is one of the older vessel types in the Gallente fleet. It was first deployed on the market as a fast passenger craft but the extra passenger quarters were later modified into weapon hardpoints as the newer models came to be used for small-scale security and military duties. The Velator is still a very solid mining and trading vessel.



Frigates

Frigates are small, fast ships, used often for PvE in level 1 missions. They are also used for tackling and electronic warfare roles in PvP.

The Atron doesn't have great firepower and it still isn't the most durable of ships, but with its speed and agility, good piloting can keep it alive while tackling a target while other ships deliver the punch. Furthermore, it can serve as a level 1 mission runner until Gallente Frigate III is trained for the

In addition, an ample Power Grid and CPU make the Atron easy to fit with little training.

The Incursus may be found both spearheading and bulwarking Gallente military operations. Its speed makes it excellent for skirmishing duties, while its resilience helps it outlast its opponents on the battlefield. Incursus-class ships move together in groups and can quickly and effectively gang up on ships many times their size and overwhelm them. In recent years the Incursus has increasingly found its way into the hands of pirates, who love its aggressive appearance.

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. In the Gallente Federation, this led to the redesign and redeployment of the Navitas.

The Navitas had been a solid mining vessel that had seen wide use by independent excavators, along with being one of the best ships available for budding traders and even for much-maligned scavengers. After its redesign, its long-range scanners and sturdy outer shell gave way entirely for remote repairing capabilities, moving the Navitas away from the calming buzz of mining lasers and into the roar of battle.

Often nicknamed The Fat Man, this nimble little frigate is mainly used by the Federation in escort duties or on short-range patrols. The Tristan has been very popular throughout Gallente space for years because of its versatility. It is rather expensive, but buyers will definitely get their money's worth, as the Tristan is one of the more powerful frigates available on the market.

The Algos, as is custom with the Gallente, relies on swiftness of action - preferably at a respectable distance - to accomplish its goals. In this it reflects well-honed Gallente values, which include taking independent action without taking forever to wait for a committee decision, and also doing so, if at all possible, in a fashion that allows for a nice, safe buffer for immediate retreat; because theory is one thing, and practice is sometimes quite another.

As such, the Algos focuses on being able to hit its targets in rapid-fire fashion, with guns that fire fast and drones that race through space with destruction in mind.

), the Algos is designed to be flown with very low skill points; with that in mind, it is the only drone ship where Drones V is not an absolute necessity - although it should still be a top priority for new Gallente pilots. The Algos is a versatile destroyer, capable of running either rails or blasters while pushing through a respectable amount of DPS.

is a Gallente destroyer. Its bonuses favor blasters, though it can also be rail fit. It has 2 mids, allowing it to fit a tackle module, and 3 low slots for an armor tank. Unfortunately the Catalyst is still a destroyer, so it has a large signature for its tank, making it vulnerable to cruiser weapons, and it's slow speed and lack of mid slots means it will have difficulty dictating range against frigates, which is important for a blaster ship. A railgun fit Catalyst is a very fast L1 mission runner, but has trouble tanking level 2s. The catalyst's very high damage at short range makes it the ship of choice for high sec suicide ganks, as it is able to easily reach 900 Dps with T2 guns. Like all destroyers, the Catalyst is also a great entry-level salvager ship on a player's path to a

Cruiser

Cruisers are Eve's medium-sized ships, larger than frigates and destroyers but still much smaller, faster and nimbler than battlecruisers and battleships. Cruisers mount medium-sized weapons and modules. Tech 1 cruiser hulls cost a few million ISK and tend to be the first major financial step up from frigates for new pilots.

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.

The Exequror was a heavy cargo cruiser originally strong enough to defend itself against raiding frigates, though it lacked prowess in heavier combat situations. After its redesign, it had some of that bulk - and, necessarily, some of that strength - yanked out and replaced with the capability to help others in heavy combat situations, in particular those who needed armor repairs.

The Thorax-class cruiser is the latest combat ship commissioned by the Federation. While the Thorax is a very effective ship at any range, typical of modern Gallente design philosophy it is most effective when working at extreme close range where its blasters and hordes of combat drones tear through even the toughest of enemies.

is more suited to mission running. Despite this the Thorax can be popular as a first mission running cruiser, because most pilots will have trained gunnery skills while piloting frigates and destroyers, while they will probably have neglected the drone skills required to use a Vexor effectively. Having said that, the Thorax has a 50m3 drone bay, so will also benefit greatly from drone skills.

The Vexor is a strong combat ship that is also geared to operate in a variety of other roles. The Vexor is especially useful for surveying in potentially hostile sectors as it can stay on duty for a very long time before having to return to base. Furthermore, it is well capable of defending itself against even concentrated attacks.

, is a drone boat. The Vexor is an excellent mission ship, and can also be a good PvP ship. It has 75mb of drone bandwidth, allowing it to field a mixed flight of medium and heavy drones at a time, and has the drone bay to carry a few replacements or an additional flight of light drones. This gives the Vexor great flexibility for long roams, where it can carry a full flight of medium and light damage drones, as well as a flight of light repair or EWAR drones to deploy as the situation dictates. While the Vexor has a bonus to hybrid guns, this can be ignored if desired due to a large amount of the Vexor's DPS coming from drones anyway, and Vexors with autocannons, nosferatu and/or neutralisers are common. With 4 mids and 5 lows Vexors are most often armor tanked.

The Vexor is also a great ship to use for salvaging missions as they are completed. By using 2 Salvagers, a Small Tractor Beam, a Drone Link Augmentor and a single Hybrid Turret (to draw aggro) in the high slots a moderately drone-skilled capsuleer can securely complete level 2 missions while salvaging. Salvaging level 2 missions is debatably profitable however the salvage/mission fit Vexor can complete level 2s in respectable time when compared to a straight mission fit Vexor.

Among T1 cruisers the Vexor is a little more skill demanding than the

Battlecruiser

Battlecruisers are larger, slower and have more slots than cruisers, but they're smaller than battleships and fit the same medium-sized weapons that cruisers use. They occupy a position between cruisers and battleships analogous to destroyers' position between frigates and cruisers, although battlecruisers are much more versatile and widely-used than destroyers.

is renowned for its high DPS potential in PvP. It is also a popular suicide gank ship.


Although Gallente ships are usually better armor tanked, the Brutix benefits from a shield tank in several areas. Low slots can be dedicated to gank modules to increase DPS. The shield tank Brutix also has the advantage of being faster than an armor tank, which means it can get into the short blaster range sooner.

Worried that their hot-shot pilots would burn brightly in their eagerness to engage the enemy, the Federation Navy created a ship that encourages caution over foolhardiness. A hardier version of its counterpart, the Myrmidon is a ship designed to persist in battle.

Ogres may have difficulty tracking targets smaller than battleships, and travel time can also be an issue depending on the initial engagement range. Pilots without T2 ogres may wish to use hammerheads, valkyries, warriors, and ec-300 drones in their drone bay instead.

The Talos began in YC 110 as an R&D concept by ORE. Conceived as a patrol craft for mining operations in lawless space, the Talos would have been abandoned completely were it not adopted by the Black Eagles, a black-ops branch of the Gallente government. The Black Eagles stripped the Talos of non-essential systems and bolted on battleship-class weapons, creating a quick-strike craft ideal for guerilla action.

The Talos remained a military secret until YC 113, when it was introduced into wider circulation as a third tier battlecruiser. Today the Talos is manufactured by Duvolle Labs, who modified the original ORE designs to bring it in line with Gallente standards.

Battleship

Battleships ("BSs", sometimes "BBs" from US Navy terminology) are the biggest, heaviest sub-capital combat ships in the game. They are correspondingly expensive, with even the cheapest battleship hulls selling for many tens of millions of ISK. Tech 1 battleships are standard tools in PvP and PvE combat. There are two classes of Tech 2 battleships: Marauders, which are specialised for mission-running, and Black Ops battleships, which can transport fleets of stealthy ships across long distances using covert cynosural fields.

(aka Domi) is the one of two T1 battleship drone carriers, with a bonus to drone damage and hit points. It has the 125mb bandwidth required to field a full flight of heavy or sentry drones (which is not unique among t1 battleships) and a 375m3 drone bay large enough to carry several flights of heavies, sentries, mediums and/or lights. The Dominix's ability to choose damage types by switching drones makes it an attractive level 4 mission runner. With its 5 mid slots and 7 low slots, the Dominix is normally armor tanked.

, the Dominix has bonuses towards drone tracking and optimal - this helps a little with normal drones, but is most useful when using sentry drones. Since Dominixes get a lot of their damage from drones, some high slots are often used for utility modules instead of weapons. One or two drone link augmentors will be required to make the most of the Dominix's maximum range with sentries. Remote repair Dominixes are also common. The Dominix lacks a bonus towards any particular type of weapon, so which guns (if any) are fitted are up to the pilot's taste. This flexibility, along with the ability to carry utility drones such as EWAR or repair, and the low price, also make the Dominix a popular pick for PvP. For capacitor warfare, however, the

The Megathron has established itself as one of the most feared and respected battleships around. Since its first appearance almost two decades ago it has seen considerable service in the troublesome regions on the outskirts of the Federation, helping to expand and defend Gallentean influence there.

The Megathron is one of the best player vs. player ships available to the Gallente. With his high amount of high slots and low slots, it can fit a sporty tank while dealing out a relatively high amount of DPS. Common setups for the Megathron include "Blaster"-throns and "Sniper"-throns, the former being a close range blaster fitted ship while the latter being a railgun fitted long range ship.

Originally set to sail under the guise of "Iteron", this new iteration of an old stalwart is fast and reliable. It is equally popular among civilians and militaries due to its low price and ability to be fitted in myriad different ways. Despite its speed and resilience, however, it may need to be guarded while in particularly unfriendly territories, which is why it has also been outfitted with a drone bay for extra protection.

This lumbering giant is the latest and last iteration in a chain of haulers. It is the only one to retain the original "Iteron"-class callsign, but while all the others eventually evolved into specialized versions, the Iteron Mk. V still does what haulers do best: Transporting enormous amounts of goods and commodities between the stars.

With the Odyssey 1.0 expansion, the Iteron V was the largest T1 industrial available. However, the Ody-1.1 industrial rebalance gave the Bestower the highest potential cargo, the Mammoth, the fastest travel time, the Tayra a launcher and highest base cargohold and made the Iteron Mark V average all-around due to the conversion of the Iteron Mark 2/3/4 into specialized ships for minerals, planetary commodities and ore.[1]

Ammunition, Range, and Kiting

You should carry 3 types of ammo during missions, and switch when required. By default, close range (antimatter or plutonium) ammo should be used. If you are taking too much damage at close range, switch to medium range (lead or thorium) or long (iron or tungsten) range ammo and fire from further away. Guns can suffer from tracking issues, so it is recommend to use the 'keep at range' option instead of the 'orbit' option. With the amount of enemies in missions, orbiting is less likely to mitigate the total incoming damage from rats. Even close to optimal, when orbiting and using close range ammo, guns will often have difficulty tracking enemies. Enemies should be kept close to optimal with the 'keep at range' option, this should keep angular velocity low to avoid suffering from tracking issues, and as long as enemies are within optimal there will be no reduction in damage from range.

Antimatter requires the most cap, has the shortest range, and does the most damage. Lead requires the least cap, has no range modifier, and does middling damage. Iron has the longest range, and the least damage.

To find out your optimal with ammo, load ammo in your guns, then right click and show info. The optimal displayed in the attributes will be adjusted for ammo and skills. Or better yet, use EFT and import your character skills to see all of your ship's stats.

For PvP, faction antimatter and null (blasters) or spike (rails) are usually used. Javelin (rails) has half the optimal of antimatter, better tracking, and similar DPS. Void (blasters) has slightly better DPS than faction antimatter, and better optimal, worse falloff, worse tracking, and worse cap consumption. Void can be useful in some circumstances, especially if the target has multiple webs applied to it. It is often better to keep at range close to your optimal in PvP to avoid tracking problems. Orbiting can cause tracking problems, except with small ships orbiting large ships due to the higher signature radius making shots hit the target easily.

When using a battleship that requires cap boosters, it is recommended to keep a medium standard container in the cargo hold. This will provide extra space, which is handy for switching out ammo types and picking up loot after a fight. Always make sure you have the required space for one full load of ammo in the cargo hold, otherwise switching ammo will be difficult.

Tech and Meta Levels

See also: Techs, Tiers and Meta levels

These fittings were made mostly using Tech 1 Meta 0 modules for frigates and cruisers, and meta 4 and Tech 2 for larger ships. Higher Meta items up to meta 4 will often be easier to fit. Tech 2 is Meta 5, and usually harder to fit. Meta 3 and 4 are usually expensive, often more expensive than Tech 2. Meta 1 and 2 modules will often be less expensive than Meta 0, due to low demand and high supply on the market. Sometimes meta 4 is cheaper and better than Tech 2, like for ECCM modules. Some meta 4 modules are nearly always used instead of the T2 version, because the T2 having worse attributes and being harder to fit, like for armor plates.

In PvP, frigates and cruisers are often not worth fitting expensive modules on for low skill point or inexperienced pilots. Tech 1 Meta 0 modules are provided freely by the university. Once pilots have the skill points, a certain amount of combat experience, and enough ISK to replace bigger ships, they should consider moving to a battlecruiser with T2 fittings.

Pilots without T2 guns fitting a BC for PvP should probably avoid the overpriced meta 3 and 4 guns. Some of the meta 3 and 4 medium waepons are reasonably priced, but many are not, and will only make your ship into a loot piƱata for the enemy when it is destroyed, for very little increase in effective dps. It is recommended to get T2 guns before getting into BC, BS, or any T2 damage dealing ships for PvP.

Meta 4 guns are recommended on some of these PvE ships, as many gallente pilots in their early careers will focus sooner on T2 drones than T2 guns. Some Meta 4 guns are reasonably priced, others are hideously expensive. If you can't afford to lose expensive Meta 4 guns, downgrade them to meta 3 or 2 instead.

Meta level can be checked in the 'show info' window under the attributes tab. Items without a meta level displayed in the attributes tab are meta 0. Meta level can also be displayed in a ship or station hangar when the items are displayed in list mode. To add the Meta column, right-click the header and select 'show meta lvl'.

Drones

Small drones should be used against frigate sized enemies, medium drones should be used against cruiser sized enemies, and heavy drones should be used against battleship sized enemies. Sentries are mostly meant for battleship sized enemies, but if smaller enemies are far enough that tracking and signature radius isn't an issue, they can deal relatively well those.

Amarr drones are not recommended; due to their low damage multiplier, they are rarely useful. Even against rats who's lowest resistance is EM damage, they can be outperformed by Gallente drones. However, the Amarr curator sentry drones can be good to use against rats with a low EM resist (depending on range and tracking). Gallente drones have the highest damage multiplier, and thermal damage is the best or second best damage to deal against many rat types. It is strongly recommended to fit the best drone types to match rat weaknesses.

  • Caldari scout drones: Guristas, Mordu's Legion, Mercenaries, Serpentis
  • Gallente scout drones: Blood Raiders, Sansha's Nation, Rogue Drones
  • Minmatar scout drones: Angel Cartel

Some of these factions have ships with variable resists in different ship sizes. It is advised to check the two lowest resist options and compare drone damage reports. NPC Damage Types

Drone aggro should be watched. When arriving in a mission room, aggro should be acquired by approaching enemies and shooting them with guns. If a new wave of enemies arrives and the drones catch aggro, they should be recalled to the drone bay, and released only when the enemies have targeted your ship. Under normal circumstances, you should never lose drones when using proper aggro management with rats. Some missions have particular aggro rules that can lead to drones getting shot, check Eve Survival mission reports for details.

Keyboard shortcuts are recommended for drone management. Drones need to be initially launched manually from the drone window, but shortcuts can be set for attack and return to drone bay commands.

In PvP, Gallente and Minmatar scout drones are used almost exclusively. Gallente drones for their damage potential, Minmatar drones for their speed and explosive damage which armor tankers will not always patch. Explosive damage is also better than thermal against a wider range of T2 ships that have augmented resists. Amarr drones are sometimes used in PvP to gank mission runners and ratters that have a weak EM hole. For sentries, bouncers are popular for their damage type and range.

In general, it is better to keep drones in passive mode. In missions and wormholes, drones on active can trigger a new wave earlier than desired. In PvP, drones on active mode can lead to having an aggression timer when it is not wanted and being unable to dock or jump through a gate.

See Drones and Using Drones for more advice on drone selection and deployment.
