Dramiel 101

I´ve seen some forumposts and blogs about the Dramiel lately, so I thought I´d share what I know of this awesome ship.

First, read Skye´s blog.
That is the AC fit.

Then go to contracts, type in "DRAMIEL" and get one close to you, or go to Jita where most seems to be.
-While in Contracts screen, type in "Gistii B-Type 1MN MicroWarpdrive" and buy one of those too.
Some might get cheap here and opt for a normal MWD, but it is the key factor for this fit, as it allows you to be cap stable, zipping around at 6000m/s laughing at anything trying to catch/shoot ye.

For the rest of the fit, I opted to go with Jaxxon´s Arty fit, as I saw him topping the damage-charts on it when the Pythons did Amamake (look at dec 8:th)
And I liked the idea of staying further out if in a gang and target being tackled by others.

Then practise flying it.
Train on some belt rats or a can whatever, but get used to going really fast around your target.
-It gets tricky when there are multiple targets on the field, as you dont want to get too close and get scrammed, but most of the time even then, your speed carries you out of scram-range.

Look at Skyes "How to tackle a sniper-ship" over at Spectre.

The Dramiel has been a part of 193 kills in Python and we have only lost 4.
(I think two were to gateguns, cant speed-tank those!! -Silly Pythonlemmings )
But the one where a Cruor got his faction web on Brick stands out, steer clear of things with web/scram bonuses mmmkay? ;)

I cant remember if you needed AWU IV for this (Advanced Weapon Upgrades, makes guns req less powergrid) but there are also implants that does the trick.

If you do it right, you will get plenty of kills in this, they are just awesome when they are in a gang or flock or.. flight, whatever :)
100m is alot for a Frigate I agree, but you must factor in both how big the chance of you dying in it are, also how bloody fun it is to fly!

...Plus it looks good. ;)


  1. I want one so badly!!! *checks his almost empty wallet* Stuck with the Punisher then...


  3. ok the 100m dramiels seem to be in abundance lately, due to all the posts... So i suppose the question now is when will someone post the "dramiel hunter" fits (anti-dramiel) cause with the high number of them flying around

  4. Just get a Cruor with faction-stuff :)

  5. Dramiel is clearly the best thing to hunt a dramiel in. Clearly.

  6. Double web hookbill to kill all but expert dramiel pilots.

  7. daredevil kill dramiels
