General Info

The Merlin offers a good alternative to the Kestrel - it has plenty of CPU and 4 mid-slots, meaning it can fit plenty of electronic warfare. It also has more effective hitpoints than other frigates due to its shield resistance bonuses. It is, however, one of the slower, lower-dps frigates. Merlins are very versatile ships, and are very popular among Agony pilots.

Alumni Only: The following suggested fit is for Alumni ONLY. In this fit, we swap out the afterburner for a microwarp drive. You can drop the suggested tracking disruptor for an invulnerability field to take advantage of the Merlin's bonus to shield resistances. This ship makes a good "chaser tackle" ship, pulsing the microwarp drive to get into scram/web range then holding down the target while it dies. Students should NOT use this fit, as microwarpdrive = death until you are familiar with evading bombs and smart-bombing battleships.
