High amount of high slots

The venerable Marshal series of battleships have made up the backbone of CONCORD's fleets for a century, in various marks and iterations of a design originally built around the subframe and keel of the Amarr Empire's Apocalypse-class battleship. The appearance of a response force led by Marshal-class battleships invariably ends in the destruction of criminals and terrorists daring to try their luck in high-security space.
Over the course of the Drifter Crisis, the Directive Enforcement Department assessed that the aged design, improved only incrementally over the decades, could no longer meet the challenges facing CONCORD. The Marshal was therefore included in CONCORD Aerospace's "Force Majeure Program" to develop enhanced and totally overhauled versions of its core inventory of police action and combat vessels.
While CONCORD Aerospace successfully upgraded the Marshal and other DED vessels with hyper-advanced technology, the program became a severe drain on CONCORD's resources. Consequently, the Inner Circle authorized a limited release of the Marshal, stripped of CONCORD's advanced rapid-deployment and electronic warfare suites, to the capsuleer market via authorized dealers.

Base Time to Warp
Base Time to Warp is essentially the time needed for this ship to align and accelerate until it reaches 75% of its top speed and goes to warp. The time displayed here is the base calculated time with no account for any warp related skills, modules or any other effects.

The Marshal is the CONCORD Black Ops battleship. Like its counterparts, the Pacifier and the Enforcer, the Marshal receives bonuses to weapons from all four empires, range bonuses to both warp disruptors/scramblers and webs, and also features a strong active tanking bonus connected with the pilot's Security status. Initially only available as a redeemable code to attendees of EVE Vegas 2017, BPCs are acquirable as the level 500 reward of Project Discovery. This limited availability has kept the Marshal much more expensive than its empire peers.
The Marshal brings flexibility, utility, and fast-locking tackle to a blops fleet. With 7 medium and low slots (along with very generous fitting room), the Marshal can be either armour or shield tanked, with larger blops fleets preferring armour buffer, and solo or smaller groups preferring active shield. Active tank on a marshal also benefits from the Marshal's bonus to local repairers/shield boosters based on security status. The Marshal has bonuses to all racial weapons, but is often fitted with torpedoes to maximise DPS. However, the Marshal, like its recon counterpart the Enforcer, lacks the drone bay which all other blops have.
With bonuses to warp scramble/disruption range as well as web range, the Marshal provides excellent tackle capabilities, able to point targets at long range (up to around 60km). Combined with its generous number of midslots and high native scan resolution, the Marshal can fit sensor boosters to quickly lockdown its targets.
The main drawback of the Marshal, however, is its price, being only available from Project Discovery and costing around 6b for the hull alone.
