So last night I jump cloned up to the station where my carrier was stationed and watched as the crews continued their training, drills, and storing equipment. Currently the Ninveah has no modules or drones installed but plans are being drawn up and soon I will begin the process of instructing the station crew and ship crew to equip the beast for battle.
This is my current working dream setup (note: click images to embiggen them). A lot of faction modules for best performance, good solid defense, and when the shield transporter is off its cap stable at 51%. With Caldari Carrier IV I can throw out 11 fighters/drones (level V is planned but since its over 60 days I might as well plan without it) for over 950 DPS.
I spent a lot of time browsing ship setup forums on Eve Online, Scrapheap Challenge, and Battleclinic to come up with this setup but comments / suggestions are always welcome.
Now, I'm not going to be able to afford all those faction modules at once so I made sure I can make the same setup using Tech II modules only.
Here it is. Resistances are not as high, shield boost amount not as impressive, and its not as easy on the cap (although the difference is mostly negligible). However, it is vastly more affordable and as I earn more ISK I can replace modules with the superior faction versions.
In either case I plan to hold a slew of drones beyond the 11 fighters covering as many eventualities as possible.
