The Tempest is one of the Republic Fleet's key vessels; a versatile gunship proficient at long-range bombardment and capable of dishing out specialized types of damage with great effectiveness. A well-rounded squadron of Tempests has been proven time and time again to be an invaluable wild card in a fleet battle, one which opponents should ignore at their own peril.

Summary

The Tempest is a Tech 1 Minmatar battleship with two bonuses for projectile turret DPS. The hull bonuses double the DPS, so that its six turret hardpoints give the effect of twelve unbonused turrets, while leaving two helpful high slots free for other utility modules.

With 5 mid slots and 6 low slots, the Tempest can be shield- or armor-tanked. If shield tanked, it achieves impressive DPS; if armor tanked, it has a huge number of utility mids. In both cases, the tank is on the weaker side compared with other Tech 1 battleships. Its big brother the Tempest Fleet Issue has one low slot more and thus works better with an armor tank. The Tempest is relatively quick and agile for its class.

Notes

This class of battleship was prominently featured as John Rourke's battleship in the machinima "Clear Skies".

The English word "tempest" was adopted into the language, meaning largely unchanged, from Latin via Old French. It appears in English surnames in the twelfth century, and as a noun in written English in the thirteenth. The Tempest is the only ship in EVE that shares its name with a Shakespeare play.
