Industrial - KryosA couple of weeks ago, I posted my tanky Nereus fit for new haulers. I’ve been doing a little (pre-)Spring Cleaning these last few weeks, and I’ve noticed that I really need a Kryos in order to move around the refined minerals I’ve spread across New Eden. The fit I’m using is very general purpose:

[Kryos, General Purpose]
Reactor Control Unit II
Co-Processor II
Warp Core Stabilizer I
Warp Core Stabilizer I
50MN Y-T8 Compact Microwarpdrive
Adaptive Invulnerability Field II
EM Ward Field II
Thermal Dissipation Field II
Improved Cloaking Device II
Core Probe Launcher I, Core Scanner Probe I
Medium Low Friction Nozzle Joints I
Medium Low Friction Nozzle Joints I
Medium Core Defense Field Extender I

I started with Neville Smit’s Kryos fit from a couple of years ago. I made the following changes to make it a little more general purpose:

  • Added a Core Probe Launcher. Let’s face it, getting stuck in a wormhole with a load of refined minerals is a bummer.
  • Upgraded the cloaking device to an Improved Cloaking Device II and added a 50MN microwarpdrive. This allows the Kryos to perform the MWD/Cloak Trick.
  • Dropped the Damage Control II and Nanofiber Internal Structure II for the Reactor Control Unit and Co-Processor. These are fitting requirements brought on by the 50MN MWD.
  • Replaced the passive shield hardeners with active hardeners. These greatly improve shield resistances compared to the passive modules.

The theory of operation here is that, rather than tanking an attack, the attack should be completed avoided. That’s the purpose of the Cloak/MWD. If that gets messed up (and it will happen), the Warp Core Stabilizers and shield hardeners are there in the hopes that (a) they don’t get more than 2 points on you, and (b) they didn’t bring more than about 5k of gank. This is basically the EVE online equivalent of someone telling you to “lock the door and hope they don’t have blasters.”

Take note that nothing in this fit affects cargo hold space. Specialty cargo holds, like the mineral hold in the Kryos, do not benefit from any module in the game.

Anyway, this is a bit of a silly fit. If you manage to avoid a gate / wormhole camp, let me know! Feel free to let me know if you go down in a fiery blaze of glory, too.
