Hurricane - Pirate Fitting

This Hurricane fit is widely used and is basically a buffer tank with lots of DPS (damage per second). It is built for one purpose; to track, trap and kill the target quickly. Once your prey is Webbed and Disrupted, orbit at just under 10km and attack en-masse.

Use ECM drones to help avoid any defensive attacks from the target and pulse the Micro-warp drive if too much damage is taken too often. The fit does depend on the type of targets you will engage. Drone boats and missile ships can be a problem, but anything with tracking turrets doesn't last very long at all.

The fit is also quite cheap therefore if it's lost it is easily replaced. I would not recommend rigging the ship, this can give another 10,000hp which helps with the survivability but it is not cost effective if you lose the ship.

If you want more DPS you can swap the ECM drones for Hobgoblin II's which pump it up to over 500 DPS. With the twin Webifiers, the accuracy of your guns is vastly improved; you will get better hits more often which helps speed things up so you can ransom your target then retreat before re-enforcements arrive.

The fit also works quite well fitting Tech I equipment if your skills aren't quite up to scratch yet but I would always recommend using only Tech I or Tech II instead of 'Best Named' modules as these are also expensive and chances are you will not win every fight.
