The Rifter is THE iconic Eve Online1 ship. Its the one we want to build into a Lego ship (please support!). Its ubiquitous throughout all of New Eden, high sec, low sec, null sec (not so much Wormhole space but its different all around). Its had entire guides written about piloting it. It is the Tech 1 frigate of choice for new players and 6 year old veterans. I use it on my main as a occasional low sec roaming ship and my alt in Red versus Blue as trained exclusively for flying it and nothing else.
Its not that it is necessarily the best Tech 1 frigate available. I've seen solid setups and piloting for Punishers, Merlins, and Incursuses but the Rifter is solid and dependable in most scenarios.
So today I present my "stock" Rifter fit.

What's your "stock" Rifter fit?
1 - Please, for the love of god, people, stop spelling it as EvE or EVE. The former is wrong and the latter is technically correct but unnecessary and jarring.
