RELATED UNI-WIKI REFERENCES

In YC114 each major empire faction, having been embroiled in a harrowing, extensive, long-term war, recognized the growing need for support and logistics functionality in their vessels during the kind of protracted interstellar warfare that might otherwise prove exhausting for its participants. Both Frigate and Cruiser-class ships were put under the microscope, and in the Caldari State the outcome of the re-evaluation process led, among other developments, to a redesign and redeployment of the Osprey.

The Osprey originally offered excellent versatility and power for what was considered a comparably low price. After its redesign, its inbuilt mining technology - now a little creaky and long in the tooth - was gutted from the Osprey and replaced in its entirety with tech of a different type, capable of high energy and shield transfers.

Summary

The Osprey is the Tech 1 Caldari logistics cruiser, with bonuses to shield transfers and energy transfers.

Like the Minmatar Scythe, the Osprey is designed to boost other ships' shields. However, unlike the Scythe, and instead like the Amarr armor-repairing Augoror, the Osprey is designed to trade capacitor with other Ospreys in a "capacitor chain". Because of their 200% bonus to energy transfer amount, Ospreys trading energy transfers to each other effectively create a large amount of capacitor out of nothing. A cap-chained Osprey can be capacitor-stable with lower skills than a Scythe, and will also more easily resist energy neutralization. On the downside, a cap-chain team of logistics ships is more vulnerable to ECM, because a jammed Osprey not only can't shield-boost its fellows, but also can't transfer capacitor, reducing its teammates' remote repair capacity. Cap-chained logistics ships also demand more coordination from their pilots.

The Osprey is piloted in a similar fashion to the more powerful Tech 2 Basilisk.

Skills

An Osprey can make a battlefield difference with relatively limited pilot skills, but good general support skills will boost its impact.

Capacitor Management and Capacitor Systems Operation are important for logistics ships. Training in Shield Emission Systems reduces the capacitor burden of remote shield boosters, as Capacitor Emission Systems does for remote capacitor transfer modules. Several skills in the Targeting category are also helpful: Signature Analysis and Target Management make it easier to shuttle between repairing different allies, while Gravimetric Sensor Compensation raises the Osprey's sensor strength, reducing its vulnerability to ECM.

Tactics

The Osprey is typically fitted with a mixture of remote shield boosters and remote capacitor transferrers in its high slots; propulsion, shield tank, and ECCM for jam resistance in the mid slots; and mobility and capacitor aids in the low slots. The exact mixture of modules can be tuned to different character skill levels. The drone bay can be used for logistics drones (unbonused, unlike those of the Scythe), or for damage or ECM drones.

The pilots of Ospreys in a capacitor chain must coordinate carefully before battle, and might benefit from their own logistics comms channel and/or their own logistics commander.

Notes

The osprey is a large bird of prey which, unusually for a raptor, hunts fish.
