All skills at 5: 

EHP: 10.2k
DPS: 309 / 352 with heat
Speed:  2285 m/s
Capacitor: lasts 40s
Optimal range:  1.4km
Cost:  40m ISK approx

This is a right little knockout artist – four blasters, plus a neut and decent tank.  And one drone – seems hardly worth getting it out of the bay for what it delivers, but every little helps, I guess. 

On the button or in a fleet, if you can get this on top of other frigates or even other destroyers, or even cruisers, it packs a decent punch, features a neut and can last the distance.

If you’re using this exclusively in plexes, you can swap out the MWD for a 1MN Afterburner II and it still all fits comfortably, giving you 2m 10s of cap and a top speed of 880m/s.

But it doesn’t get into a novice plex.  Only small plexes and above.  So you will be facing other Tech II frigates, destroyers and the like.

It also costs 40m ISK.  That’s three times more expensive than an AB / blaster fitted Algos, which does more damage and has more EHP.  So if you’re looking for a plexing button-sitter, the Algos is much better value and has a wider engagement profile, even if it is a bit slower.  In a really quick fight, the neut does help, but the Algos’ drones will still be attacking you even if the Algos itself is incapacitated.

The Enyo features a 50% reduction in MWD signature radius penalty, which tends to indicate what this ship is best at – attacking bigger ships than frigates, fast.  So I would suggest this monster is reserved for roaming fleets looking for dessies and cruisers.

However, if you ARE going to sit on the button, or are facing something that you are pretty confident is going to be a short-range AB and ideally blaster fit – and do have money to burn - give this a spin…

Hobgoblin II x 1

All skills at 5: 

EHP: 8164.8
DPS: 236 / 274 with heat
Speed:  905 m/s
Capacitor: stable at 67.2%
Optimal range:  11.1km, but 7km is ideal
Cost:  41m ISK approx

This is a bigger, harder version of the classic Incursus 7k scramkite boat.  It’s tougher, significantly more damagier, albeit a bit slower – but that doesn’t massively matter as you’ll mainly be using this against destroyers in small plexes.  Get at 7km range, orbit, put everything on.  Job done.

The rails with Fed Navy Antimatter S have an optimal of 11.1km, so whilst I generally prefer Antimatter over Javelin S, you might want to try this with Jav.  Gives you an optimal of about 5.5km, a falloff of another 7.5km and a bit more tracking, in exchange for less topline DPS.  Personally I’d just stick with Antimatter but, as always, your mileage may vary.

The Superscram Enyo is, I’m afraid, three times more expensive than the incursus 7km scramkite, but quality doesn’t come cheap.

Small Anti-EM Screen Reinforcer I

All skills at 5:

EHP: 9934.1
DPS:  AM - 313 / 359 with heat.  Null - 349 / 401
Speed:  2603 m/s
Capacitor:  12m 30s
Optimal range:  Under 1km.  Orbit at 500m if possible.
Cost:  40.4m ISK

This really shouldn’t work, but it does.  Shield tanked, with Electron IIs, the Enyo transforms itself into a slower, much tankier, harder hitting version of the derp-o-blaster Atron.  That 10k tank allied to 350+ DPS makes this a formidable assault frigate.

Solo, it can take on AB brawler frigates and Destroyers.  But where it really, really shines is in packs - hunting bigger pray.  A gang of these make quick, light work of seeing off cruisers and other bigger prey.  If ‘big game hunting’ is the objective, then switch to Null and get orbiting at 500m.
