My Tengu (Project Jennifer): How I roll in level 4 missions..

Add comments

A few nights ago I tweeted about almost being AFK in two level 4 missions, and how easy the Tengu made it. Several people asked that I share the fit I use so here it is. It’s not expensive, and the hulls are really coming down in price. A word of caution though, if you’re at 10mill SP and hope to get the same results, do take in mind I’m heading to the wrong side of 55mill SP and some of my Engineering (and possibly other) skills might be a bit higher.

The particular missions I was running was for Republic Security Services mostly against Angel Cartel, hence the tank fitted against explosive damage (Pirate Invasion – Angel was this exact fitting). I have all but one of the Caldari Subsystem skills to IV, with the Offensive Systems to V. I don’t particularly use any special implants for this, but usually a CR4 and CC4 is nice to have…also maybe the slot 10 ZMM100 (-3% Missile ROF).

With this setup and my skills I get 523DPS, 18 000 HP shield, and 81 000 HP effective.. The only three ‘Faction’ modules is the Caldari Navy Large Shield Booster and Caldari Navy Shield Boost Amplifier, and Republic Fleet 10mn AB. Together this should only add about 150mill isk on the price, and I’m pretty sure you don’t need it. You definitely don’t need the after burner, and can easily use a Domination Large Shield Booster with a Tech II shield boost amp (but the skills for that module is a bit intensive). Setup above with the cheap implants I mentioned runs cap stable at 85% unless you run the shield booster, and then it’s good for almost 1.5minutes. As I said, my skills and yours might differ, so try the setup and see if it works for you.

My only gripe is that even with Scourge Fury missiles it only gets around 520DPS, and in some missions it’s not the tank that is the worry but the DPS. It just takes forever to do the missions, and some missions with Arch Frigates etc, because of the lack of small drone space (actually no drone space), can become a pain in the ass.

There is a train of thought that you ‘need’ to pimp your Tech III ship, but so far I have not needed the Tech II rigs, the Caldari Navy BCU’s, the officer PDU, or the Pith X booster and amp. If you’re going to spend that isk, get a Golem and pimp it. This fit works fine for me.

    Try this fitting, it hits the smaller targets much better because of the Target Painter and the Dps should be way higher. Downside is it requires a bit more attention, it’s not really afk-proof.

    I just ran the fit in EFT with my skills. The DPS is way higher, around 660DPS, but the tank doesn’t run stable with the AB on, and not a huge buffer. What I might do is throw one of the rigs I have off, and fit one of the Medium Warhead Rigor Catalyst I. The rig cranks up the CPU though so you would need a +3% (KMB50) implant.

    that’s sort of a failfit. here’s mine with much better DPS and tank:

    4x Caldari Navy Ballistic Control System
    1x Pithum A-Type Medium Shield Booster
    2x Caldari Navy Shield Boost Amplifier
    1x Pithum A-Type Magnetic Scattering Amplifier
    1x 10MN Afterburner II
    1x Caldari Navy Invulnerability Field
    6x Heavy Missile Launcher II
    3x CCC I

    accelerated ejection bay / amplification node / dissolution sequencer / augmented capacitor reservoir / fuel catalyst

    My personal fit is not exactly the same (I have deadspace AB and 2x CCC II) but I used this for a long time. You really can’t improve the DPS any further, unless you go for officer BCS…

  4. Serotta Ortot Says:

    It’s impressive yes, but F*CKING EXPENSIVE!!!!! That Pithum booster is about 1bn on it’s own? I really can’t justify spending that on a T3.

  5. DrPest Says:

    It’s pretty much useless since you still won’t hit the frigates and cruisers with decent damage considering the amount of money you dump into it.

    I wouldn’t fly a Tengu w/o Target Painter and Rigors anymore, because with painting, you can shoot Fury missiles all the time while doing good dmg on all kinds of targets. Plus CN Invuls and the SB are freaking expansive and screaming “Gank me!”

    and to top it off get some implants:
    slot 7: zainou ‘snapshot’ ZME2000
    slot 8: zainou ‘Deadeye’ ZMA1000
    slot 9: zainou ‘Deadeye’ ZMS1000
    slot 10: zainou ‘Deadeye’ ZMM1000

    you can go for a full faction crystal set if you want or just normal 5 implants.
    i know its a lot of isk but this will make a lot of it as well.

    i get 946 dps out of this (perfect skills 988dps) and 44.3KM range so you dont have to do too much.

    fit hardners according to missions and you will tank all lvl 4’s easy.

    you could squeeze even more dps out of this if you want.
    but loose some range.

    good luck and on a pve tengu go HAM’s

    p.s. hit frigs with faction ammo much easier then a TP
