The Wolf is one of two T2 variants of the popular Rifter-class frigate. Like it's cousin the Jaguar, both ships are most commonly seen in action during solo or small gang PvP.
Compared to its more rounded counterpart, the Jaguar, the Wolf is slower, has higher DPS and improved damage projection, and is almost always armor tanked. The Wolf has one extra high slot and low slot, giving it a 5/2/4 layout. The lack of ability to fit a full tackle and low speed make the Wolf a second tier solo PvP vessel, but a much more effective ship in small gang and wolfpack situations.
The Wolf is also a viable choice for low/mid end PvE. With high damage output, decent speed and a tough armor tank, it is capable of easily taking on level 3 missions and mid-range exploration complexes in the hands of a skilled pilot. Younger or less experienced pilots are advised to stick to larger ship classes for PvE situations until they are confident managing a non-stable tank and frigate transversal.
