Caldari – A journey into the past

Let’s move on to the last of the big four Empire factions, the Caldari.
At the same time the Caldari are the faction with the most new models and let’s be honest it didn’t hurt them.
The Caldari stand for their shield and missile systems like no other faction and the ships look accordingly. This combination makes the Caldari a very flexible faction and therefore very popular in any area of PVE. I can’t really imagine the ships with the launchers as gunships equipped with hybrid weapons.
While the old designs lived very much from a certain asymmetry, the new models look much smoother and as if from one cast and for the most part now also more symmetrical. In contrast to the Amarr, where the ships are visually more massive due to the armor, most Caldari ships are more finely constructed due to their shields.
Basically, most of the ships here also needed customization and these look pretty darn good.

So here we go with the overview. Again, I don’t guarantee completeness and if I should have forgotten a ship feel free to give me a corresponding tip.

As in the other articles we start with the Stealthbomber. The Manticore has become much beefier and looks like it can do good damage and carry a lot of ammunition.

The Nighthawk has also undergone a hull change. It is no longer based on the Ferox, but on the Drake. The Nighthawk is not only used in fleet battles, but is also popular as a ship with a very strong tank in PVE. This tank also fits more to the Drake than to the Ferox, because the primary weapon system is missiles and not hybrid turrets.

As usual, we have only considered the T1 hulls in our review here.

So far the most Caldari ships have been reissued and I hope there will be some more. Of some like the Kestrel there are already versions of how they could look like. There are still some ships missing that urgently need a makeover in my eyes.
