Gallente PvP For Under 100m

Today CCP Seagull retweeted a request....

Made me think of my favorite Gallente PvP ship and and that's well under 100m. The Triple Neut Tristan! An 11m ISK (ish) bundle of fun. You can just imagine your opponent screaming in frustration as Eve's Bitching Betty moans "The Capacitor is Empty!"

It has no guns, favoring instead neuting the smeg out of your opponent and letting your drones rip them a new one.

High Slots
Small Unstable Power Fluctuator x 3

Mid Slots
Warp Scrambler II
Small Capacitor Booster II
1MN Y-S8 Compact Afterburner

Low Slots
Small Armor Repairer II
Drone Damage Amplifier II
Energized Adaptive Nano Membrane II

Small Egress Port Maximizer I 2 x 2
Small Ancillary Current Router I

Hobgoblin II's.... lots of Hobgoblin II's

Basically you are not going to chase anything down in this. You need to catch them at short range. Sitting in the "warp in" of a faction war plex is ideal. If a kiting ship or anything that can keep outside the range of the neuts gets you then you are in trouble. Overheat your neuts and wait.

You can kill the kiters but you need to be careful. A Slicer is toast IF you catch him. With overheated web and scram I have been known to catch them before they get out of range.

I've also killed a Coercer before and even 200m ISK Daredevils. Comets are killable too providing they don't have a cap injector. They'll mince you if they do. Basically brawling frigates without cap injectors are your best prey. Just remember Minmatar guns generally don't need cap so will keep firing! However Slicers, a ship I do not like personally due to slow death by kite, are my favorite kill. It so satisfying to watch them making range. 4k, 6k, 8k.... speeds dropping.... 9k.... 9.5k..... 9k, 8k, 7k! YES! Gotchya!

It's not an easy ship to fly. You need to manage the overheat, the cap injector and your armour repper whilst making sure the target isn't getting away which occasionally needs some AB overheat if they are a decent pilot. However, it can be a very rewarding PvP boat!
