Ships of EVE
Venture Forth Across the Stars
United as One, a Ship and Its Heart
There are many different ship classes in EVE Online. Each one is vital for ensuring the continued prosperity and security of New Eden. Even the humblest Frigate has a crucial role to play in large-scale combat, while Industrial and Mining ships represent the lifeblood of the economy.
Every class of ship plays its own vital role in the world of EVE. Frigates, the smallest vessels at your command, excel at intercepting and pinning down targets, catching unwitting explorers off-guard, or swarming far larger vessels whose weapons stand no chance at tracking them. Battleships rain down firepower in huge ranges of engagement, and Supercarriers and Titans might change the balance of entire battlefields with effect generators, or transport entire fleets of smaller ships into the fray. There is always a suitable ship for anything you wish to do.
Corvettes are primitive ships, fitted with basic mining, propulsion and weapon modules and are provided for free by pressing “Board Your Corvette” in any station. They provide new Capsuleers with the basic means to explore New Eden and serve as a steppingstone toward other specializations.
