Sarmatiko has a history of leaking ship and modules models out of testing server/client data, he was in fact the man who brought us the first looks into the Cambion and Etana ships and of course the new Missile Launcher models weeks before CCP Games officially released a feature video.

Today we are greeted with a video titled “Tier 2 Caldari Destroyer” – we cannot confirm the veracity of this video, but still is a worth while addition to Sarmatiko’s video library.

Das Loot: New Caldari Tier 2 Destroyer Hull Leaked?

From the original dev blog announcement:

But wait, there is more. More ships that is, as we think the destroyer class currently is a little small with only four hulls. That is why we want to introduce new tech 1 destroyers to fill roles that are not yet covered – as such, Amarr / Gallente would receive additional drone boats, while Caldari / Minmatar would be more missile based.

The ship looks like an U-Boat, so German weaponry admirers will surely rejoice – how about including a submarine commander cap on the NeX Store CCP? I won’t be the only lining up for one.

    Awesome! You can see the missile hard points along the spine. Would be nice to see over sized launchers on there, Destroyers with hams or heavys? Kinda like the Naga when it had its torp bonus.

    Looking forward to the rest being leaked no *bites nails*

      Notice in the dev. blog they say "we want to introduce new tech 1 destroyers to fill roles that are not yet covered ". Glass cannon destroyers already exist. I think the role they want to fill are the ones that have come out and said…. drone boats, and missile boats…. two things the current destroyer lineup doesn't have, maybe when they look at tier 2's they'll add something like that with the new hulls in mined, but I wouldn't hold my breath for something like that in this up coming update.

        I think at the time I read Tech 2 rather than Tier 2, reading fail.

        True that glass cannon is there already on consideration but maybe these new missile dests have a bit more brawl and if they roll that up with T2 in the future it could become a rapid torp assault boat, either way its all good and potentially refreshing.

      I would say this is the case, if they don't gimp it with rockets. Cormorant has a nice bonus to rails that can bitch slap a frig.

    I just hope they make more of a use for light missiles and light rapid launchers. If they slap 7 slots for rocket bonuses, I'm going to be pissed.

  21. Your Not Serious?

    You know more new ship additions is nice, however it does nothing really for the lack of in-game content for people who live in 0.0 or anywhere that don't want to have to do the repetitive NPC missions over & over again.

    Personally I would prefer CCP made the game interesting to play again, cause the way it currently stands EVE is starting to look its age & the things which made it great have all fallen to the wayside.

    No these ships might look nice but they do nothing for the game as a whole

      Players are supposed to eb the content, CCP has stated they dotn want it to be a theme park, and want areas like 0.0 and WH to be hevily pvp centric, so you want content? un-NAP yourselves and go shoot your next door enighbor. blues the new red yo.

      You need to go back to WoW. Content is what players do with the ships they can fly. If you need more scripted bullshit to entertain you, EVE is not the game for you.

      They might not do anything for you, but to a lot of people they represent opportunities.

    Goons pussys just ran from 70 BC`s they had 170 with 15+ carriers…….We only got a carrier and idiots remaining.

    Seriously its sad, this is right after we blapped a 20 BC`s to a 3:1 fleet

    More Goonies running from us after we got 20 BC`s killed and we had 70 they had 160 with Carriers they still ran away, they had 70 Drakes alone vs our 70 Nagas, ontop of us being in UMI which is now theres.

    They really are horrible, it confounds me everytime.

    Thats all we had they had 50+ carriers and TONS OF SUBCAPS….BUT NOTHING, must not have had there 10:1 mandate they worked so carefully with on PL…..

    Come on if that wasnt a morale booster I dont know what is….."We have adapted after they have welped our drake fleets over and over, with the help of our buddies PL who gave us magic powdwered SLowcats around since 08 that we know call DAS BOOT CATS to fight the guys who defend PL`s own own moons" He had to show they clearly oare on the side of GSF and not NCDOT

    Lol terrible, If we had 1/2 your numbers you`d be in branch with RZR or Hisec because DEK+CR+PB would be cleaned out lol.

      I don't think goons want fights, they blob systems with the intent that their enemy's won't engage, and they can shoot structures in peace.

      Corm if it was symmetrical is so much prettier. Hell T1 Dessy`s are beautiful look at coercer….Gorgeous

      This isnt that pretty and since its going to hopefuly be a true missile brawler [Like its older bro the Drake] It needs to reflect that in looks, not look like an aircraft carrier.

      There were literally 1 thousands of cooler designs on Devian art, they shouldnt even waste employees time drawing new ships…Just use Devian arts for all new ships and give creator a "Special model" as a prize or something.

    Maybe it's part of the 'things that look like they should have thick armor in places now look like they have thick armor in places' a-la the stabber re-do? I realize it's a Caldari ship but that doesn't mean it has no armor whatsoever.

    Also this better become a Missile brawler, im so sick of Caldari ships that are brawlers use Blasters and try to compete with Gal with Guns…..We need a true Missile brawler like the Drake but smaller for all classes.

    Merlin should be more like Hawk instead of Harpy
    Moa should be more like Caracal with resist bonus and Ham DMG+Rangr only bonus with no HML support or at least half what hams get.

    Right now the Moa and Merlin as gunboats are lame IMO, Cald uses missiles period, its there main Weapons just like Hybrids are Gals main then drones, so should be Cald with Missiles then Guns.
