Retribution: Corax Pve Fits

New Caldari players who love missiles will also love flying around in a Corax, having cut their teeth on the Kestrel.

Some example fits for very-low skill point players:

[Corax, newbro rocket brawler]

Ballistic Control System I
Ballistic Control System I

Experimental 1MN Afterburner I
Small Ancillary Shield Booster, Cap Booster 25
Small Shield Booster I
‘Langour’ Drive Disruptor I

‘Malkuth’ Rocket Launcher I, Scourge Rocket
‘Malkuth’ Rocket Launcher I, Scourge Rocket
‘Malkuth’ Rocket Launcher I, Scourge Rocket
‘Malkuth’ Rocket Launcher I, Scourge Rocket
‘Malkuth’ Rocket Launcher I, Scourge Rocket
‘Malkuth’ Rocket Launcher I, Scourge Rocket
‘Malkuth’ Rocket Launcher I, Scourge Rocket

Small Anti-Thermal Screen Reinforcer I
Small Anti-Kinetic Screen Reinforcer I
[Empty Rig slot]

Small Shield Booster repairs 11.5hp/second for 60 seconds (i.e. when you run out of capacitor)
Ancillary Shield Booster repairs 26hp/second for 15 seconds with a one minute reload delay

This fit will work even with the absolute minimum skill points required to fit the modules, although if you have low Electronics skills (less than III) you may need to offline a Ballistic Control System. This fit has an effective engagement range of 6-15km depending on skills, so expect to take more damage than long-range fits. The ASB is for emergencies – you’re free to replace it with shield hardeners, or even a medium shield extender if your skills are near-perfect.

[Corax, newbro missile bombardment]

Ballistic Control System I
Micro Auxiliary Power Core I

Experimental 1MN Afterburner I
Small Shield Booster I
Cap Recharger I
Cap Recharger I

Upgraded ‘Malkuth’ Light Missile Launcher, Scourge Light Missile
Upgraded ‘Malkuth’ Light Missile Launcher, Scourge Light Missile
Upgraded ‘Malkuth’ Light Missile Launcher, Scourge Light Missile
Upgraded ‘Malkuth’ Light Missile Launcher, Scourge Light Missile
Upgraded ‘Malkuth’ Light Missile Launcher, Scourge Light Missile
Upgraded ‘Malkuth’ Light Missile Launcher, Scourge Light Missile
Upgraded ‘Malkuth’ Light Missile Launcher, Scourge Light Missile

Small Anti-Thermal Screen Reinforcer I
Small Anti-Kinetic Screen Reinforcer I
[Empty Rig slot]

Small Shield Booster repairs 11.5hp/second for 60 seconds (i.e. when you run out of capacitor)

This fit is a bight tighter, and requires some skill levels in Electronics, or else the shield booster goes offline. The Micro Auxiliary Power Core provides enough power grid to fit the resource-hungry Light Missile Launchers, allowing you to comfortably shoot things out to 30-60km, depending on skills.

And for someone with higher skills who wants an example PvP fit:

[Corax, PVP]
Ballistic Control System II
Damage Control II

Limited 1MN Microwarpdrive I
Medium F-S9 Regolith Shield Induction
Fleeting Propulsion Inhibitor I
Faint Warp Disruptor I

Rocket Launcher II, Mjolnir Rocket
Rocket Launcher II, Mjolnir Rocket
Rocket Launcher II, Mjolnir Rocket
Rocket Launcher II, Mjolnir Rocket
Rocket Launcher II, Mjolnir Rocket
Rocket Launcher II, Mjolnir Rocket
Rocket Launcher II, Mjolnir Rocket

Small Ancillary Current Router I
Small Core Defense Field Extender I
Small Core Defense Field Extender I

Scourge Javelin Rocket x350
Caldari Navy Mjolnir Rocket x700
Caldari Navy Nova Rocket x350
Nanite Repair Paste x50

The Corax is pretty slow, so light missile launcher kiting is probably not going to work, unlike a Talwar, so this is a midrange/brawler fit.

    Haven’t made one for myself as yet. Likely try out the Light Missile Bombardment one, or some version of both fittings.

      Probably don’t need a web, what with the hull bonuses. It’s nice to have, though.

      Also t2 ACR rigs aren’t exactly cheap. You might want to rethink that t2 shield extender, and/or upgrade that MAPC.
