Description & Bonuses

The Merlin is the most powerful all-out combat frigate of the Caldari. By experienced pilots it is highly valued for its versatility in using both missiles and turrets, while its defenses are exceptionally strong for a Caldari vessel. Although many rookie pilots may prefer the slightly faster but less specced Kestrel missile boat since it doesn't require extensive training in both turret and missile weapons to optimze damage output. On the other hand, the Merlin is easier to fit since it has more generous resources and is more forgiving due to its better defense.

Caldari Frigate Skill Bonus: 5% bonus to shield resistances and 10% bonus to Small Hybrid Turret optimal range per skill level.
