EVE Online: Capital Ship Recent Changes
The biggest news is that Supercarriers will make their long-awaited debut on Tranquility. Intended to be the heavy hitters of capital ship PvP, Supercarriers will feature the following changes from their previous incarnations:
- Fighter Bombers: the only entities capable of firing the advanced new compact citadel torpedoes, a full wing of these little monsters is capable of doing twice the damage of a sieged Dreadnought. With max skills, 20 Fighter Bombers will do 8000 DPS; 10000 DPS with the Nyx. They cannot be delegated like normal Fighters so you'll have to stay on grid to keep them on target.
- Hit Point boost: ‘Super' capitals they shall now be. There's no point dishing out the punishment if you can't take it.
- Jump Range increase: advances in quantum flux hyper-spatial mechanics n' stuff now allows these ships to travel along the same jump routes as Dreadnoughts.
