The Naga was designed in YC 109 by Corporate Police Force as an anti-Guristas ship, sacrificing the usual robust Caldari Navy standards in favor of supporting battleship-class weaponry. It was rejected by Hyasyoda management for being overspecialized.
Caldari Battlecruiser bonuses (per skill level):
The Naga is the Caldari Navy's entry in the "see who can fit the biggest stick on the smallest ship" competition, and it certainly makes an impression. As with the other attack battlecruisers, the Naga has a tissue paper tank, but reaps the benefits of Battleship-grade weaponry (of which range is the most important to the fragile ship). Of the four, the Naga is by far the easiest to fit for sniper combat due to the natural range of railguns coupled with the optimal range hull bonus. With Tech 2 railguns and good skills, the Naga can reach ranges of upwards of 200km.
- Sharpshooter to at least 4 to extend the range of your guns. Sharpshooter 5 is a requirement for Tech 2 large railguns.
- Micro Jump Drive Operation is not critical, but helpful, as a micro jump drive will significantly help with range control.
- All of the skills to fit a full Tech 2 tank.
Range control is the most important tactic for the fragile Naga. A micro jump drive or microwarpdrive is ideal for keeping enemies outside of their weapon ranges. With a range of over 200km, the Naga can out snipe most ships provided it can keep them from getting under its guns, where the naturally poor tracking of railguns will afford them near complete safety.
Naga/Nagi are supernatural half-human, half-serpent beings common across the legends of many south and southeast Asian cultures, and incorporated into some forms of Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism, and more local religious practices. The word naga in Sanskrit (नाग) means "snake" or "cobra", and descends from the same Proto-Indo-European ancestor-word as English snake.
