Thrasher | EVE Online

Thrasher

Engineered as a supplement to its big brother the Cyclone, the Thrasher's tremendous turret capabilities and advanced tracking computers allow it to protect its larger counterpart from smaller, faster menaces.

The Thrasher is a terrifyingly potent damage-dealing ship, providing bonuses to Projectile turret tracking speed, optimal range, and damage. While its defenses leave something to be considered, the sheer destructive power it can project toward its targets makes it a ferocious foe for any who encounter it. Though it may not stand up to other ships in a protracted engagement, in a one-on-one contest its target may rarely last that long.

At close range, the Thrasher is able to chew through any frigate that makes the mistake of letting it get too close. This destroyer is an effective option for level 1 Missions, where its rack of guns tear through enemies like paper, as well as in PvP situations against other Capsuleers. The Thrasher also often plays a powerfully disruptive role in High-sec as well, however, where Capsuleers use them to unlawfully attack other ships in an act known as "suicide ganking” – with the objective of destroying their target before CONCORD arrives and swiftly dispatches offending vessels, often with a nearby friend ready to pilfer the remains.
