Hokioi Pirate Battleship by Damage-Sponge Hokioi Pirate Battleship by Damage-Sponge
Hokioi Pirate Battleship.

A new Pirate Faction Battleship that combines Caldari and Minmatar ship design.

The Maori name "Hokioi" is from an extinct Eagle that was the largest known in existence.

I like the idea of mixing the factions up, story could easily incorporate it. Loving the design of the ship & excellent presentation. Good luck

I'd have pegged it as purely Minmatar, Thukker perhaps, with no Caldari elements. I don't really know if there are any Caldari/Minmatar pirates. Guristas are Caldari, Serpentis are Gallente, Angel Cartel is a possibility, but those are also predominantly Minmatar as well (Thukker to be precise). But whatever faction it actually belongs to, it's very very nice. :D

The design is to reflect the speed that the ship is capable off, and relies on speed tanking and maneuverability over high resist and raw hit points.

i was thinking along the lines of

-Caldari bonus 5% reduction in signature radius per level, maybe 7.5% but this might be to high
-Minmatar bonus 7.5% increase in base speed per level

So with a signature radius around 270 with Caldari BS 5 and a base speed around 210ms with Minmatar BS 5

I wanted to avoid a shield bonus fromCaldari as Minmatar ships are a Jack of all trades and the signature bonus will help if Armour tanked.

I like it. It looks delicate to be a warship. Maybe some kind of jump ship for covering really long range journeying.

Epic blend of Minmatar Duct-Taped-Solar-Panel-Wing-Thingies and Caldari Space-Battle-Cubicles.
