1. Megathron (Starter)


Design Notes
Use: Vanguard.

Possibly the best Gallente battleship from its T1 tiers for running incursions.
Although the Hyperion does 1.6% more raw gun dps, it loses roughly 17% less tracking to an equivalent Megathron.
Another advantage to the Megathron is its ability to field a full complement of heavy/sentry drones.

Decent cap but plagued by CPU fitting issues.
Its major weakness as a blaster ship is range.
This affects effective damage projection and removes any mid-range dps roles for the ship.

The resist focus is towards the Kin/Exp side to minimize Sansha missile damage - this is the greater danger for battleships.
The EM/Therm resist it not a great concern as long as it's in the 70-75% range or higher, depending on slot/base resist limitations.

Due to the racial base resists and armor hp limitations, the tank is less than ideal.
2x trimark armor rigs are fitted to increase buffer, rather than 1x trimark + 1x anti-thermic armor pump.
The resulting lower thermic resist is acceptable.

Note1:
The T1 Automated Targeting Unit increase the maximum target count from 6 to 8 targets.

Note2:
For sniper duty, Meta4 425mm railguns can be swapped-in without exceeding the CPU limit.
T2 425mm railguns will not fit for this configuration.

2. Megathron (Standard)


Design Notes
Use: Vanguard

A variation of the starter fit with better tank and faction webifiers.
Platings and hardeners are upgraded with selected use of faction modules.

A Centii/Corpii A-type ANP is utilized to conserve CPU.
The faction explosive hardener is necessary to allow swapping to T2 425mm railguns without exceeeding the CPU limit.

Note1:
The T1 Automated Targeting Unit increase the maximum target count from 6 to 8 targets.

(Standard -> T2 Sniper refit)


Design Notes
Use: Assault (sniper), HQ (sniper) and Kundalini Manifest.

Simple module swaps (from Standard fitting) for sniper duty.

One sensor booster allows targeting up to 145km.
In most cases, the range should be adequate.

Note1:
Having three tracking computers gives the flexibility of using faction Iridium effectively < 130km over T2 Spike.

3. Megathron (Gank)


Design Notes
Use: Vanguard

A variation of the standard fit with improved dps.
Overall resists and armor buffer are reduced.

The faction EANM is removed to release 1 low slot for an extra magstab (or tracking enhancer).
A trimark armor rig is removed to make way for an anti-thermic armor pump.

Note1:
The T1 Automated Targeting Unit increase the maximum target count from 6 to 8 targets.

(Gank -> T2 Sniper refit)


Design Notes
Use: Assault (sniper), HQ (sniper) and Kundalini Manifest.

Simple module swaps (from Gank fitting) for sniper duty.

One sensor booster allows targeting up to 145km.
In most cases, the range should be adequate.

Note1:
It is also highly recommended that an extra 1600mm be fitted for the above sites to ensure higher survivability against alpha damage.
The armor buffer is a little low for armor battleship in those sites due to the combination of alpha damage and delayed remote repair.

Note2:
Having three tracking computers gives the flexibility of using faction Iridium effectively < 130km over T2 Spike.
