Development

Often nicknamed The Fat Man this nimble little frigate is mainly used by the Federation in escort duties or on short-range patrols. The Tristan has been very popular throughout Gallente space for years because of its versatility. It is rather expensive, but buyers will definitely get their money's worth, as the Tristan is one of the more powerful frigates available on the market.

Ship Profile

Class: Tristan Hull Class: Frigate Roles: Light Assault, Light Attack, Light Escort.

A misunderstood vessel if there ever was one, the Tristan is probably one of the least used frigates in New Eden. This is due to its peculiar due to her missile armament, an anomoly amongst most Gallente ships. Because of additional skills required to fully fly her the Tristan oftenly gets left behind eventually for either better missile ships or larger gallente vessels. Despite this lack of popularity it is quite strong for a frigate and in the hands of an experinced pilot using her features superior fitting options can maximize the havok she can cause when flown correctly.

As with most gallente ships she fares much better as a close range brawler able to fly in and do alot of damage quickly.
