stealth bombers blatantly need addressing. they'd be so cool if you could use a cov ops cloak on them, but from my recent excersion to empire, they now cost 75mil?! using a module like that on a ship designed to decloak and engage wouldn't be a good thing, as that module costs 10x than most bombers.
and an anti frig platform? with cruiser missiles? doesn't make much sense when most ships can outclass it with other weapons and don't have horrific fitting requirements.
they should be anti BS ships i think, bit nerfed but lethal in gangs of about 10-12 against 2 bs.
atm they're basically an expensive replacement of the old Cruise kessie, only 50x more expensive (which is prob why nobody uses them), or 200x more expensive if you feel like actually putting a cloak on it
They aren't solo ships thats why. They are more support. Also what makes you think they are anti-inty? Inty vs cruise missle, the inty wins. Great for quick strikes on mining ops etc but not ganking unless you have lots of em and support.
The post above was by me btw and i love the manticore it is a great little ship for gang roams when our corp goes out we usually go on small roams with just ceptors some recons and a ass heap of bombers + if your against a nuts inty pilot you can actually instapop it with good skills (like i said if the pilot dont know how to fly inties) running into 3 cal navy wrath cruise with a mwd on? not clever idea
