Drones  help in the game for both PVP and PVE

Drones are unmanned aerial vehicles. Drones may cause additional or major damage depending on the bonuses of the ship can repair the shields and armor, stun the target designation system, etc.

Drones do not require ammunition.

As Damerow drones used in PVP combat and missions.

If you are equipped with Drake, to pass the missions, then the best option would be Hobgoblin II drones maximum damage from a set of light drones. If Drake is intended for pvp, Hobgoblin II can be changed to Warrior II (faster drones) or Hornet EC-300 (can choke the system targeting the enemy ship)

1. Characteristics drones eve

Drones can be used on vehicles with special. compartment for drones, Drogba (Drone bay). The ships have a bonus on combat drones is mainly ships race Gallente. But even on ships without bonuses drones are quite effective when properly administered.

You can control a maximum of 5 drones (except ships CBT class Carriers, they allow you to manage a large number of drones). The number of controlled drones is responsible Drones skill (+1 drone per skill level). Also, the skills Drones responsible for other characteristics drones, using the skills of this group, you can increase the range of the drones, the volume of the shield, armor and hull speed drone optimal range firing and increase the damage dealt by drones. Read more all of the skills for drones described below.

Drones are versions of T1,T2 and faction.

Drones version of T2 is more efficient version of T1, fractional part drones are at the level of T2, but are more expensive.

Example options Gallente drones

options drones eve

Characteristics drones can be seen in the window information on the Specifications tab

Part characteristics drones are permanent, unchanging values, as part of improving your study skills, bonuses, ship and install on the vehicle modules and rigs.

The range of control drones - in characteristics are not displayed. The default is 20 km and increases with skill Scout Drone Operation (+5 per level of skill and skill Electronic Warfare Drone Interfacing (+3km on the skill level), as well as modules and rigs.

The amount of Drona, m3 - specifies the number of drones to fit in Drogba ship. A constant feature.

The width of the control channel Mbps - determines how many drones you can control. A constant feature.

Information on the ship has the appropriate characteristics: volume of danbee (m3)and the width of the control channel (Mbps).


The cruiser Gnosis volume of danbee 75 m3, the width of the control channel bi/c, i.e., cruisers can manage 5 light(5M3\Mbit/c) and 5 medium drones(10m3\10Mbit/c), and heavy drones (m\mi/c) will fit in Drogba in Kol-e 3pcs, but pralat can only be two.

Damage and modifier damage - the more data, the more total damage drones. Damage is the basic immutable characteristic, and the modifier damage varies depending on the studied skills and the installed modules and rigs.


Basic drone (1) and the same drone (2) placed in Drogba vehicle(drone operate studied the skills of the character)

modifier damage drones

The value of DPS drones specified in the "Service equipment" ship - item "Firepower"

Each combat drone has its own type of damage depending on the race:

drones Amar - EM,

drones Caldary - KINETIC

Gallente drones - THERMAL,

Minmatar drones - EXPLOSIVE

Some fractional drones (Augumented and Integrated) can cause two types of damage, an example of 'Integrated' Hobgoblin damage thermal and Kinetic

Maneuverability is determined by the mass and inertia modifier Drona. A constant feature.

The volume of the shield, armor and structure (increased skills and modules) and the degree of resistance to different kinds of damage(permanent feature).

Optimal and effective range. The optimal range is the range at which the arms deals 100% damage to the target. Effective range - the range at which the amount of damage done is reduced by 50%. Improving skills, modules and rigs.

Speed tracking - tracking, like sentry guns. More than trekking the more likely to hit the target with max. damage. Improved module.

The rate - Constant characteristics.

Maximum speed - change study skills and modules

Speed along the orbit is a Constant feature.

The cooldown of shield - shields the drones and ships passively restored. A constant feature.

The signature is the size of a drone. A constant feature.

Drones of different races differ from each other in many characteristics.

Of all the drones are the fastest drones Minmatar and Gallente drones are the biggest modifier damage

So Galitskii most damania drones and the slowest

Matura, the fastest drones with damage on the 3rd place.

Kuldurskie, with a little less damage Galetsky and speed on the 3rd place. Have good protection.

Amursky drones the least damage and speed is slightly less Matura.

Just in case "damage"( damage) is damage dealt by drones. And we must not forget that this damage profile, Amari EAT it, Caldari - kinetics, Galanti - thermal and Matara - explosive damage.

As an example, the comparative table light drones:

2. Classes drones

Drones are divided into classes according to their function:

1. Combat Drones (Combat drones)

Battle drones have several subclasses:

1.1 Light Scout Drones

1.2 Medium Scout Drones

1.3 Heavy Attack Drones

1.4 Sentry Drones

1.5 Fighters

1.6 Fighter Bombers

2. Combat Utility Drones (auxiliary Combat drones)

3. Electronic Warfare Drones (Drones electronic counter measures)
4. Salvage Drones (Drones dismantling)

5. Mining Drones (Drones extractors)

6. Logistic Drones (Repair drones)


1.1 Light Scout Drones (Light reconnaissance drones)

light drones eve: Acolyte, Hornet, Hobgoblin, Warrior

Volume 5 m3,

The width of the control channel 5Mbps

The fastest drones, to kill frigates best option. And with good leveling skills and in variant T2 cope with the cruiser. Convenient and as additional firepower to help primary weapon.


1.2 Medium Scout Drones (Medium reconnaissance drones)

medium drones eve: Infiltrator, Vespa, Hammerhead, Valkyrie.

Volume of 10 m3,

The width of the control channel 10Mbit/s

Drones slowly lungs, but stronger and damania. For shooting cruisers and Battlecruisers(BC). The frigates efficiency is reduced compared to light.


1.3 Heavy Attack Drones (Heavy combat drones)

Heavy_Attack_Drone: Praetor, Wasp, Ogre, Berserker.

Volume 25 m3,

The width of the control channel bet/s

Drones with a little speed and maneuverability, but with good damage, especially on the ship with bonuses. Good to attack cruisers, BC and Battleships(BS). For frigates not be enough speed.

An example of the characteristics of light, medium and heavy drones

light,medium and heavy drones eve differences


1.4 Sentry Drones (Sentry drones)

Sentry Drones: Curator, Warden, Garde, Bouncer.

Volume 25 m3,

The width of the control channel bet/s

Drones without engines, i.e. can't fly, but can cause a lot of damage, especially on ships with bonuses. They move very slowly and if you want to cancel the attack of target and enter the command "Back on Board", the drones will stop firing and slowly crawl to the ship.

We also have core damage by race (as written above). The most important characteristics of these drones that range firing: optimum and effective range and velocity tracking tools(tracking). There are drones leading effective fire at close range and long-range drones.

Drones melee is Galitskii Garde - tracking the biggest, the best\effective range is the smallest. The damage coefficient is the largest.

Long-range drones. Although kalwarski drones Warden and the largest optimal, but intense. damage to the smallest and the effective range is not the greatest. Therefore it is better for ranged to apply matura Bouncer,because the effective range of the battle was the largest and most intense. damage takes the second place after Garde.

Distance activation sentry drones 250km. But to give the command to attack target drones, you can only if your vehicle from the target is at a distance of control drones (depending on the studied skills).


Drone Warden II firing range 90km

The pilot can control the drones at a distance of 57km.

The distance from the vehicle to the target of 50 km, and from the target to the drone 150km. Ship-drone distance 100km. Drone is activated according to the purpose and will fire, but will not fall.

The distance from the vehicle to the target of 70 km, distance from the drone to the goal of 50 km, the distance between ship's drone 20km, i.e., the drone can hit the goal, but the team on the attack you will not give away.

Fractional variants sentry drones have the best options for tracking than T2 drones, and optimal\effective range they have less than T2 analogues and damage coefficient less the same, but more than T1 drones.

The fighters and drones
Drones fighters and fighter-bombers because of its features used on ships of large tonnage (CBT) Carrier and Supercarrier (example: Thanatos and Nyx)
1.5 Fighters (Fighters) - drones for ships CBT class Carrier

Fighters: Templar, Dragonfly, Firbolg, Einherji.

The volume of 5000 m3,

The width of the control channel bet/s

Versions of T2 and faction there.

Decent sized drones, comparable to the cruiser. Including and caused damage and protection.

Ship media (including bonuses), you can run more than 5 fighters. Data drones-fighters can be sent to escort other ships and they can jump over them within the system. Can warpath for the purpose. Small goals do not fall, and the large is just right for them - Bq, BS, etc.


1.6 Fighter Bombers (bombers) - drones for ships CBT class Supercarrier

Fighter Bombers: Malleus, Mantis, Cyclops, Tyrfing..

The volume of 5000 m3,

The width of the control channel 500 Mbps

Versions of T2 and faction there.

These drones will be padmasree and paprotnia than fighters. Have on Board instead of the gun torpedo installation. Accordingly, it is advisable to apply for ships more slams. Good to attack capital ships of the class. May not be the escort.
