The Zealot is built almost exclusively as a laser platform, designed to wreak as much havoc as its energy beams can be made to. As a vanguard vessel, its thick armor and dazzling destructive power make it capable of cutting through enemy fleets with striking ease. Zealots are currently being mass-produced by Viziam for the Imperial Navy.

Developer: Viziam
For their first production-ready starship design, Viziam opted to focus on their core proficiencies - heavy armor and highly optimized weaponry. The result is an extremely focused design that, when used correctly, can go toe-to-toe with any contemporary cruiser design.

Summary

The Zealot is known as a good all round HAC. Its optimal range bonus is easy to convert to a damage bonus due to the good optimal of lasers and instant crystal switching. The optimal bonus is usually put to use with pulse lasers loaded with T2 Scorch ammunition to have good damage at a very respectable optimal range, but also makes it suitable for fitting as a sniper. With 7 low slots it is designed to be armor tanked, and can still fit several damage modules there as well.

The Zealot is the most commonly used ship in the doctrine known as "Armor HACs", a fleet of low signature, afterburning, armor tanked ships with medium range guns.

Notes

The Zealot follows the HAC model of having somewhat lower DPS and tank than a Battlecruiser, but making up for it with greater range and speed. This results in a ship that can outrun anything it can't outgun. Generally, a Zealot can take on larger ships if flown correctly. Versus battleships and tier 3 battlecruisers with large guns, emphasise angular velocity by orbiting or manual piloting. If you have an AB fitted then you are golden. When fighting a battlecruiser with medium weapons or cruiser, you most likely outrange and outspeed them so kite and fight. If you have been flying Amarr exclusively up to this point, it might be a good idea to practice your kiting skills.

The zealot has no drones, nor space for an energy neutraliser, so it is very vulnerable to any fast frigates if they get within tackle range.
