Description & Bonuses

The Obelisk was designed by the Federation in response to the Caldari State's Charon freighter. Possessing similar characteristics but placing a greater emphasis on resilience, this massive juggernaut represents the latest, and arguably finest, step in Gallente transport technology.

Gallente Freighter Skill Bonus:

  • 5% bonus to cargo hold capacity per level
  • 5% bonus to maximum velocity per level

The Obelisk is a massive behemoth of the transport world. While it does not boast the largest cargo space (that being the Caldari Charion at 785,000 m3) it is far from a lesser vessel. It replaces the cargo space with stronger armour plating, providing a tougher meal for aggressors, if one was needed. A couple of Battleships would take a good 10 minutes to rip through shields and armour, and much longer to degrade the massive structure to nothing.

However despite its apparent defences, the Obelisk, like its freighter other counterparts, is in fact completely defenceless. Its lack of any form of module slot of any level means that all is needed is a single warp scrambler and your vessel is stuck, however long it takes. Addition of a webifyer and you are completely paralyzed. It has been amusingly suggested that caught in such a circumstance the pilot may be better off ejecting and going to retrieve a combat vessel in the time it would take to destroy an Obelisk.

The slow speed of the Obelisk means that maneuvering is a painfully slow process at the best of times and great patience is needed to pilot this vessel (or any other freighter). Some pilots do claim that a certain tranquility befalls the pilot as they are forced to move at a slower pace of life, allowing for market transactions, politics or other additional work to be done while shipping freight in New Eden.

Because of their size and purpose Obelisk's are not fitted with jettison chutes. This means that they can not eject cargo freely into space, or collect from any space bound containers. They can only be loaded in stations, Planetary Customs Offices, Player owned outposts and apparently Player Owned Structures/stations.

At an approximate current market value almost a Billion isk these vessels are not to be risked unnecessarily. This includes straying unprepared into low security space.

They are also one of the most common Freighter in New Eden because of the convenience of the skills needed to fly them. Many pilots who trained for the Gallente Iteron V, the largest capacity industrial vessel available, found advancement to the Obelisk a simpler task than other pilots who had not yet advanced to their race's Industrial level 5 qualification.
