A recent alliance discussion on making sure everyone has remote repping skills for Battleship gangs (i.e. Shield Transporters or Remote Armour Repairs) evolved into a discussion of using Logistic ships in fleets, i.e. the Eve version of a full on healer. I talked about healers in Eve before and small fleet combat with larger ships is one of the few places it makes sense because the number of enemy ships and size of friendly ships (i.e. battleships) means that Logistic ships have a chance to repair the target before its destroyed.
Well, I decided to work on my skills for remote shield and armour repairing skills which takes a couple days to get to Large Tech II modules in both areas. I need the shield skills for the carrier anyways. But I decided to check to see how much additional training would be needed for an effective Caldari Basilisk Logistic ship.
1. Long Range Targeting V
2. Logistics I
3. Logistics II
4. Logistics III
5. Logistics IV
Total time: 13 days, 17 hours, 41 minutes, 41 seconds
Not too much but more than I really feel like doing right now; maybe later this winter. A Basilisk with two Large Shield Transporter IIs could repair over 160 shield points per second. That's impressive.
