The Kestrel is a heavy missile boat with one of the most sophisticated sensor arrays around. Interestingly enough, it has been used by both the Caldari Navy and several wealthy trade corporations as a cargo-hauling vessel. It is one of few trading vessels with good punching power, making it ideal for solo trade-runs in dangerous areas. The Kestrel was designed so that it could take up to four missile launchers but as a result it can not be equipped with turret weapons nor with mining lasers.

Summary

As expected of the Caldari, the Kestrel is the premier T1 missile frigate. With 4 mid slots, it can be fit for PvP tackling, but it is not as well-suited to that role as the
