The Guardian is the first vessel to feature Carthum Conglomerate's brand new capacitor flow maximization system, allowing for greater amounts of energy to be stored in the capacitor as well as providing increased facilities for transporting that energy to other ships.
Amarr Cruiser bonuses (per skill level):
The Guardian is a ship designed for capacitor transfer and remote armor repair. The capacitor transfer is usually put to use trading with another guardian to create capacitor out of thin air, fulfilling the capacitor needs of both ships. Because of its reliance on cap transfer with other ships the guardian is almost exclusively used partnered with other guardians and never alone. The use of cap transfer to fulfill its cap needs means the guardian can fit a stronger tank, but leaves it more vulnerable to jamming, because if one logistics ship is jammed then the cap chain must be adjusted or soon all will be out of capacitor.
Like most T2 ships, it is highly recommended to have Logistics Cruisers IV in order to fly logistic ships. This is especially important for the Guardian as otherwise while following a standard two incoming, two outgoing energy transfer setup, you will not be able to run 4 large remote reps. Logistics Cruisers V also allows you to be cap stable with only one incoming energy transfer while still maintaining two outgoing and the full bank of reps, which allows one of the other logis to provide cap to the rest of the fleet if needed, normally the cap hungry laser ships such as Abaddons and Nightmares.
Other skills that should be considered required would be the ability to fit a T2 armour tank with compensation skills at 3 or 4, Capacitor Systems Operation IV and Capacitor Management IV, as well as Remote Armor Repair Systems IV. The ability to field drones, either logistics, damage, or ECM, is also recommended, the type depending on individual fleet requirements. Good navigation skills and Advanced Target Management III are highly recommended, but not required to fly the ship.
