Geared toward versatility and prolonged deployment in hostile environments, Marauders represent the cutting edge in today's warship technology. While especially effective at support suppression and wreckage salvaging, they possess comparatively weak sensor strength and may find themselves at increased risk of sensor jamming. Nevertheless, these thick-skinned, hard-hitting monsters are the perfect ships to take on long trips behind enemy lines.
Gallente Battleship bonuses (per skill level):
The Kronos is the Gallente Marauder-class battleship. The Kronos is a behemoth of a ship that can roll over almost any challenger with ease due to its monstrous tank, mixed flight of heavy and medium drones, bonus to armor rep, and four double-damage hybrid turrets (the ship's bonuses favoring blasters).
The Marauder class in general is designed for PvE use, and has several built-in weaknesses designed to prevent them from being overpowered in PvP. It has low sensor strength, meaning it is vulnerable to ECM. It also has low scan resolution (even by battleship standards), meaning it will take a great deal of time to lock small targets. Thus, without support, a Kronos can be nickle-and-dimed while being pointed, jammed, and kited by smaller vessels. For a similar vessel more slanted to PvP performance, try the Vindicator.
As with all Marauders, it has several utility high slots, which are intended to be fit with tractors and salvagers to make an all-in-one PvE ship.

Bastion+MWD trick allows marauders to warp almost instantly after coming out of bastion. Hover the mouse on the decycling bastion module to see exactly how long it has left. At 9 second mark start cycling the MWD for one cycle and start spamming "warp to" hotkey. After the bastion mode ends you will get one second of MWD that accelerates you to near warp speed and the marauder will warp in 2-3 seconds. Additionally the bastion mode makes hostiles unable to activate warp disruption or scram so you will not be pointed when the bastion ends giving you a small window to escape before the points are activated.
Marauders in bastion mode can jump Wormholes as normal and be instantly out of bastion mode on the other side.
