Development

The Probe is large compared to most Minmatar frigates and is considered a good scout and cargo-runner. Uncharacteristically for a Minmatar ship, its hard outer coating makes it difficult to destroy, while the limited weapon hardpoints force it to rely on drone assistance if engaged in combat.

The Probe as a cargo runner

New capsuleers should not ignore the ability of the Probe ship to be a good cargo runner. It has a sizable cargo hold for its size and with a skill based bonus, it can allow pilot to haul relatively large amount of good with ease. Also, since it is a basic T1 frigate, it is quite cheap to acquire and fit.
