This Eve Online ship guide will cover the Minmatar Wolf Assault Ship as well as fitting suggestions, attributes and skill requirements. The Minmatar Wolf is similar to its sister Assault Ship in Eve Online the Jaguar in that it favors Small Projectile Turrets, however with reduced speed, and tougher armor and structure. The Minmatar Wolf is a tech 2 vessel based off the Rifter Class frigate hull in Eve Online, sharing a similar basic design, but separate color scheme. Assault Ships require significant training in order to fly and fit properly, but typically pay-off with significant defense and firepower considering their size.
The Minmatar Wolf is described in Eve Online as: “Named after a mythical beast renowned for its voraciousness, the Wolf is one of the most potentially destructive frigates currently in existence. While hardier than its brother the Jaguar it has less in the way of shield systems, and the capabilities of its onboard computer leave something to be desired. Nevertheless, the mere sight of a locked and loaded Wolf should be enough to make most pilots turn tail and flee.” For each level trained in the Minmatar Frigate skill, the vessel receives a 5% bonus to Small Projectile Turret Damage. Training the Assault Ship skill gives two bonuses per level, first being another 5% bonus to Small Projectile Turret damage and a 10% bonus to their falloff range. Pilots wanting to fly this vessel in Eve Online will require the flowing skills; Minmatar Frigate level 5, Spaceship Command level 3, Assault Ships level 1, Engineering level 5 and Mechanic level 5. It is recommended that Capsuleers achieve the following certificates to maximize the potential of fitting options; Armor Tanking, Core Competency and Frigate Advanced AutoCannon Turrets.
