In YC 116, Mordu’s Legion intelligence reported to command that the Guristas pirates were developing new and advanced strike craft capabilities using unknown technologies. In response to these reports, Mordu’s Legion accelerated a program of ship development that was itself a response to trends in capsuleer tactics and warfare. The crash development and manufacturing effort resulted in a new family of fast strike ships integrated with one another to provide tactical flexibility and firepower across ship class lines.
Gallente Cruiser bonuses (per skill level):
The Orthrus is the faction cruiser for Mordu's Legion, introduced in the Kronos expansion. It is primarily focused on missiles, however it also features a 25 m3 drone bay, and 25 mbps bandwidth, enabling it to fit a full flight of light drones. It can also function as a heavy tackler, with a 50% bonus to tackle range at Gallente Cruiser V. It also deals 75% more missile damage at Caldari Cruiser V (compared with an unbonused missile ship), and its role bonus causes its missiles to have not only 50% greater range, but to fly at triple speed, mitigating the "delayed damage" problem that missiles often have in PvP. The Orthrus was designed as a fast skirmishing cruiser, thus many are fitting the Orthrus with Light Missile Launchers or Rapid Light Missile Launchers, although some are taking advantage of the excellent missile damage bonus from Caldari Cruiser V and fitting Heavy Missile Launchers for large amounts of alpha damage.

The Orthrus has been a small and medium scale powerhouse since its release and it’s time to bring it down a notch. With more pressure on the tank through reduced fitting room, slightly less speed and a bigger sig we hope it will feel less oppressive. It may take a few visits to get the Orthrus in the right place, but this should be a good start.
