RELATED UNI-WIKI REFERENCES

Following in the footsteps of Caldari vessels since time immemorial, the Hawk relies on tremendously powerful shield systems to see it through combat, blending launchers and turrets to provide for a powerful, well-rounded combat vessel.

Developer: Lai Dai

Lai Dai have always favored a balanced approach to their mix of on-board systems, leading to a line-up of versatile ships but providing very little in terms of tactical specialization.

Summary

The Hawk is an assault frigate specialised in missiles and rockets. It can be fitted with light missiles, but is more often mounted with rockets: its velocity bonus to missiles allows it to fire rockets out to overheated web range.

One of the Hawk's distinguishing features is its layout of 5 mid slots, a feature shared by very few other combat frigates, the Jaguar, Griffin Navy Issue, and Hookbill; this gives it a lot of flexibility for fitting shield tank modules and/or tackling modules.

Skills

Patch History

Notes

  • The February Assault Frigate balance update introduced a new module for HACs and AFs, the Assault Damage Controls, which can replace the Damage Control module for these ships.
