1. Absolution (Standard)


Design Notes
Use: Vanguard, Assault (cruiser dps), HQ (cruiser dps) and Kundalini Manifest.

The Absolution is undoubtedly the best armor tanked command ship for incursion running.
Its RAW dps exceeds that of an equivalent Legion, with excellent overall resistance and decent armor hp.

Its major weakness however, is range. Damage projection is semi-crippled; FULL dps can only be effectively applied < 10km.
For the typical engagement range between 10-20km in vanguards, a fully skilled equivalent Legion will be more effective with its faction crystals.
It critically needs the Command Ship skill to be L5 to offset the range disadvantage for the above.

The Absolution's best range (when compared to a Legion) are < 10km (faction crystals) and between 20-30km (scorch).
The extra drone dps takes several seconds travel time to be applied, in most cases it can be discounted vs frigate targets.

When used for cruiser dps/Kundalini Manifest, replace the stasis webifier with a tracking computer/painter.

Note1:
The T2 Automated Targeting Unit increase the maximum target count from 6 to 9 targets.

Note2:
An AB can be fitted, however the limited mid-slots are put to better use with tracking computers/stasis webifiers.

Note3:
Gang mods e.g Skirmish Warfare Link - Interdiction Maneuvers can be installed as needed.
Requires the specific Warfare Specialist skills and pilot be assigned into a booster position.

The CPU problem is resolved by swapping the heat sink/EANM to selected faction modules.

2. Absolution (Balanced)


Design Notes
Use: Vanguard, Assault (cruiser dps), HQ (cruiser dps) and Kundalini Manifest.

A minor variation of the standard Absolution with improved dps.
The armor hp is reduced (via the removal of a trimark armor rig).

The T2 Energy Collision Accelerator can be swapped for a T2 Energy Burst Aerator for 0.9% extra dps.
In most cases, the former is the better choice as it reduces crystal breakages and uses less cap.

When used for cruiser dps/Kundalini Manifest, replace the stasis webifier with a tracking computer/painter.

Note1:
The T2 Automated Targeting Unit increase the maximum target count from 6 to 9 targets.

Note2:
An AB can be fitted, however the limited mid-slots are put to better use with tracking computers/stasis webifiers.

Note3:

Requires the specific Warfare Specialist skills and pilot be assigned into a booster position.

The CPU problem is resolved by swapping the heat sink/EANM to selected faction modules.
The PG problem requires a minimum Squire PG4 implant (3% powergrid) to be resolved.

3. Absolution (Gank)


Design Notes
Use: Vanguard, Assault (cruiser dps), HQ (cruiser dps) and Kundalini Manifest.

A variation of the balanced Absolution with improved dps projection.
This partly mitigate the Absolution's range weakness and slightly improves upon its turret tracking.
The overall resist is reduced to release 1 low slot for a T2 tracking enhancer.

The T2 Energy Collision Accelerator can be swapped for a T2 Energy Burst Aerator for 0.9% extra dps.
In most cases, the former is the better choice as it reduces crystal breakages and uses less cap.

When used for cruiser dps/Kundalini Manifest, replace the stasis webifier with a tracking computer/painter.
It is highly recommended that the tracking enhancer be replaced with an EANM for the above sites to improve survivability against alpha damage.

Note1:
The T2 Automated Targeting Unit increase the maximum target count from 6 to 9 targets.

Note2:
An AB can be fitted, however the limited mid-slots are put to better use with tracking computers/stasis webifiers.

Note3:
Gang mods e.g Skirmish Warfare Link - Interdiction Maneuvers can be installed as needed.
Requires the specific Warfare Specialist skills and pilot be assigned into a booster position.

The CPU problem is resolved by swapping the heat sink/EANM to selected faction modules.
The PG problem requires a minimum Squire PG4 implant (3% powergrid) to be resolved.

Note4:
Alternatively, the trimark armor rig can be removed in favor of an anti-thermic rig to focus on better EM/Therm resist.
However, this presents a slight buffer problem when doing an EANM refit for assault, HQ and the Kundalini Manifest sites.
An 800mm plate can be fitted instead, but it requires a minimum Squire PG4 implant (3% powergrid).
