Helios

Helios

Helios Name: Helios
Hull: Imicus Class
Role: Covert Ops Frigate

Designed for commando and espionage operation, its main strength is the ability to travel unseen through enemy territory and to avoid unfavorable encounters.

Developer: CreoDron

The Helios is CreoDron's answer to the Ishukone Buzzard. After the fall of Crielere, the once-cordial relations between the Gallente Federation and the Caldari state deteriorated rapidly and, for a while, it seemed as if war might be brewing. It was seen by certain high-ranking officers within the Gallente navy as being of vital importance to be able to match the Caldari's cloaking technology in an effort to maintain the balance of power.

Summary

Helios-icon.png
The Helios is mainly a scanning frigate with very little combat skills. Its primary uses are scanning down anomalies and signatures quickly with its good scanning bonuses. As of the Crucible expansion you can now fit tech 2 probe launchers for an additional 5% scan bonus. The Helios also is an invaluable asset to scouting systems and survey probing moons for valuable moon-mining opportunities. Its fast speed compared to other covert-ops frigates means its practically uncatchable in gate-camps when coupled with cloaking and micro-warp-drive tactics on bubbled gates.

Core-probe.pngUse core-scan probes for exploration
Combat-probe.pngcombat-scanners for fleet/roam work
Deep-space-probe.pngdeep-space probes are used in combination to pick up signatures at extreme ranges.

Faction probes can also give you an additional bonus as well but are expensive for the new player.

Name Meaning

Helios was a greek Titan (not that kind) and personification of the sun.
