T3 Logistics (Loki)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Line Pilots are now allowed to fly T3 Logistic Cruisers. Currently, only the Loki will be accepted into fleets. 

  • In order to Fly a T3 Cruiser, a pilot must first prove that they are a capable Logistics pilot by earning the Trusted Logi badge from a WTM Line Commander. 
  • Once a pilot has the Trusted Logi badge, they may apply to fly T3s. The application includes a skill check and some questions regarding the differences between flying T2 and T3 Logi. 
  • Pilots who are approved will receive an “Approved T3” badge from a Certified Trainer on Teamspeak. Only those with the badge are allowed to fly T3s.
    • Please ensure you are connected to the WTM Teamspeak when you x-up your T3 so the FC can confirm your badge.

 

Approved T3 Logistic Pilots must always x up with a Logistics Cruiser V Basilisk in addition to the T3 and be willing to switch as needed. 

 

Rep Application:

  • T3 Logi use 8 Medium Remote Shield Boosters vs the T2 Logi’s 4 Large Remote Shield Boosters. 
  • The medium reps have a much shorter optimal range (7km vs 32km), and less repping power per rep than the Large but the additional modules (8vs4) allow the T3 logi to outrep T2 logi at any distance.
  • When applying reps, 1.5 medium reps are equivalent to 1 Large Rep; so, in a situation where you would normally apply 2 large reps, you want to use 3 medium reps.
  • T3 cruisers get large bonuses to Overheating: the Offensive subsystem skill increases the benefits of overheating by 50%. T3 pilots therefore should expect to use heat far more liberally. 

 

Anchoring: 

  • For the TPPH and NRF it is not really necessary to do anything different than T2 Logi (orbit AAA at 10km).
  • For the TCRC, enter as normal and set up orbit on AAA. Once the tower bash starts, orbit a ship closer to the tower (a Leshak is recommended).

 

T2 vs T3 Benefits:

  • T2 logi bring utility to the fleet in the form of Combat Caps, Remote Sensor Boosters and Remote Tracking Computers. T3 logi do not bring any utility.
  • T3 logi rep harder than T2 logi. T3 logi are also more tanky than their T2 counterparts; therefore, they can more freely use their reps. Getting aggro in the T3 is not as dangerous as a T2 logi.

 

Skill Requirements:

T3 cruisers require extensive skills to perform at their best. All of the following skills are mandatory for T3 pilots.

  • Ship skills:
    • Strategic Cruiser IV
  • Subsystems:
    • Offensive V
    • Core V
    • Propulsion IV
    • Defensive I
  • Engineering
    • Capacitor Management V
    • Capacitor Systems Operation V
    • CPU Management V
    • Hull Upgrades IV
    • Power Grid Management V
    • Shield Emission Systems V
    • Thermodynamics IV
    • Nanite Interfacing IV
  • Navigation
    • Navigation V
    • Acceleration Control IV
    • Afterburner IV
    • Evasive Maneuvering IV
    • Fuel Conservation IV
  • Shields
    • Shield Management V
    • Shield Upgrades IV
      • Tactical Shield Manipulation IV
  • Targeting
    • Advanced Target Management III

Note: in the event that you lose a T3 ship and therefore a subsystem skill level, you are not permitted to fly a T3 again until your skills meet the requirements specified above.

Other Rules and Regulations:

  • All Tech III Logistics ships must use 8x Pithum A-Type Medium Remote Shield Boosters.
  • All Tech III Logistics ships must be 6 rep stable.
  • All Tech III Logistics ships must use Tech II Afterburners, at minimum; MWD’s are not permitted.
  • All Tech III Logistics ships must meet or exceed 75% in all shield resistances without Command Bursts.
  • All Tech III Logistics ships must be capable of reaching 50,000 Effective Hit Points (EHP) without Command Bursts.
  • The Loki requires the Dissolution Sequencer subsystem.
