RELATED UNI-WIKI REFERENCES

The Moa was designed as an all-out combat ship, and its heavy armament allows the Moa to tackle almost anything that floats in space. In contrast to its nemesis the Thorax, the Moa is most effective at long range where its railguns can rain death upon foes.

Summary

The Moa is a Tech 1 Caldari cruiser with a bonus to shield damage resistance, helping it to tank damage, and a bonus to hybrid turret damage.

In PvE, a railgun-fitted Moa will cope perfectly well with Level 2 missions, but might be out-competed for Caldari pilots by the Caracal, which can match its damage-dealing to NPC damage weaknesses because it uses missile launchers.

Skills

The Moa is fairly forgiving for new pilots. General support skills and fitting skills help the Moa as they help any ship; gunnery support skills are particularly useful, as are shield tanking support skills, to take full advantage of the shield resistance bonus. The Moa can launch three light drones, and in PvE combat these will help against frigates which close in and move too fast for the ship's main guns, so basic drone skills will come in handy.

Tactics

PvE

For fighting NPCs, the Moa typically fits railguns and kites. With kiting tactics reducing incoming damage, and the hull bonus to shield resistances, and careful fitting to resist the expected damage, a Moa in Level 2 missions can be quite lightly tanked, freeing up mid slots for modules such as Tracking Computers to increase turret range.

PvP

The Moa can be a cheap and effective line DPS ship in groups. With railguns, it can deal good DPS within point range, and with Tech 2 turrets it can switch to Tech 2 ammo to project sensible damage out well beyond point range.

Blaster-fit Moas can work, and can surprise opponents. However, the Moa lacks the tracking bonus of the Gallente Thorax, and fitting and/or smart piloting must compensate for this.

Notes

The moa were a group of species of flightless birds in New Zealand. They were hunted to extinction after the human settlement of the islands.
