Khanid's engineers have spent months perfecting the Sacrilege's on-board missile launcher optimization systems, making it a very effective assault missile platform. In addition, its supremely advanced capacitor systems make it one of the most dangerous ships in its class.
Amarr Cruiser bonuses (per skill level):
Like other Khanid vessels, the Sacrilege fuses Amarr armor tanking with Caldari missile weapons, providing a rare combination which is difficult to skill into -- Amarr pilots will generally prefer to fly a Zealot since they will already have strong energy turret skills, while Caldari pilots will need to train up armor tanking. However, a pilot who has strong missile skills but weak gunnery skills and finds themselves in need of an armor tanked damage-dealing ship for fleet ops will find themselves short on options. Thus, the Sacrilege fills a very niche spot in Eve's catalog of ships, along with its siblings the Vengeance and Damnation.
In terms of hull bonuses, the Sacrilege is most comparable to a Cerberus. It trades some range, DPS, and speed for tank, signature radius, a 50m3 drone bay, a potential energy neutralizer, and a choice of any damage type. These differences (particularly the tank) make the Sacrilege far more suited to brawling than the Cerberus.
The Sacrilege performs admirably whether flown solo or in a fleet, able to fit either dual reps to tank as much damage as it dishes out or a buffer tank to maximize survivability when primaried. Notably, HAM Legion fits strongly resemble those for the Sacrilege in much the same way a HM Tengu represents a more powerful Cerberus, so depending on a player's goals, skills, and budget they may opt to fly a Legion instead.
Due to the ubiquity of brawling armor fleets in wormhole space, the Sacrilege is ultimately the only real choice for a missile boat suitable for a typical WH fleet outside of the Legion. It is also perfectly suited to AHAC fleets, particularly by offering greater capability for close-range combat than the Zealot while still hitting out to a respectable range with HAMs.
