The Monitor was initially developed by the CONCORD Directive Intelligence Agency as an observation ship that could survive extremely hostile areas of space for observation and data collection missions against pirate, capsuleer, and emergent threats. To serve in this role the Monitor was developed with defensive technology inspired by the venerable "Polaris" line of frigates. After initial field testing demonstrated the incredible durability of this new vessel, CONCORD Aerospace realized that a civilian version would potentially prove valuable to capsuleer fleet commanders and the Inner Circle approved the distribution of blueprint copies directly to worthy capsuleers through the "loyalty point" program.

Flag Cruisers like the Monitor are specialized in survivability and observation at the expense of virtually all other functions. Powerful shield generators and thick armor plating combine with the smallest signature radius of any cruiser to create one of the most durable ships ever seen in New Eden. The Monitor also enjoys impressive sensor capabilities and digital systems hardened against hostile electronic warfare. In exchange for these benefits the Monitor gives up virtually all offensive capabilities and utility. The Monitor is only able to fit propulsion modules, low-power target painters, and probe launchers. This ship is the ultimate specialist, useful for fleet commanders who serve as a stable presence on a chaotic battlefield.

Summary

Following requests for a more headshot-resistant ship (headshotting being the act of trying to kill the enemy FC(s) first), the Monitor is the first Flag Cruiser to come to New Eden. It has no offensive abilities whatsoever aside from being able to fit a minimal-strength target painter. In exchange, it is exceptionally durable, having 183k base EHP combined with the signature radius of a Frigate. Unlike other CONCORD ships, Monitors are not special edition ships, and BPCs can be acquired through the CONCORD LP store.

Skills

The costs of the CONCORD ships mean that any pilot will want high skills before they fly it.

Tactics

Notes

Since the Monitor has no Turret Hardpoints or Launcher Hardpoints and very limited Power Grid and CPU it cannot fit modules capable of attacking or damaging other ships.

The Monitor is only capable of fitting Target Painters, Automated Targeting Systems, Propulsion modules, Scan Probe Launchers, and festival launchers. This leaves the Monitor in a special role.

While it is very evasive, it is not impossible to catch and warp interdict or scramble it, plus (as of 2019 information) it carries the price of an expensive battleship. Thus, for smaller fights the FC may wish to consider an alternative platform from which to command.
