Taking what he had learned from his days in the Caldari Navy, Korako ‘The Rabbit' Kosakami, Gurista leader, decided that he would rub salt in the State's wounds by souping up their designs and making strikes against his former masters in ships whose layout was obviously stolen from them. To this end the Gila, bastard twin of the Moa, has served him well.
Gallente Cruiser bonuses (per skill level):
The Gila is the Guristas cruiser as such it only uses two medium drones but those have a massive DPS and health buff. Their damage corresponds to twelve unbonused medium drones or six heavies (with medium drones having better application, speed, etc). Its thermal/kinetic missile bonus applies to all missile weapons, from rockets to cruise missiles. Rapid light missiles are especially popular on Gilas but other missiles or even no damage mods in the highs are not unusual.
The shield resistance bonus of up to 20% corresponds to a shield tank increase of up to 25%. This leads to a strong shield tank as it also has six mid slots. In PvE, a shield regeneration tank often works out well for the Gila due to the good shield recharge time of cruisers combined with the huge HP bonus of large shield extenders.
The Gila is rather slow for a cruiser, nevertheless if fitted with an afterburner it can still dissipate a lot of incoming damage from larger weapons.
The Gila really shines in various PvE applications. It's the most popular cruiser for abyssals; it's well suited for DED 3/10 and 4/10 sites as well as anomalies; it can also (solo) run missions up to level 4, it can run low class wormhole sites. In short: there is barely a PvE content which Gilas couldn't do.
While people might rather think of the Gila as a PvE ship, it's also very strong as a damage dealer in PvP. It can be used solo, in small gangs, and up to medium sized fleets. While defanging Gilas is usually a hopeless endeavor due to the drone health bonus and the five sets of drones in its bay, smartbombs are still a strong counter to Gila fleets.
The Gila generally already works well with low skills i.e. the relevant skills only at level 4 or even only 3. This is due to its very strong role bonus which isn't skill dependent. But still keep in mind that its performance scales with your skills and that you need good or even perfect skills for challenging tasks such as high tier abyssals.
