Caldari Navy Hookbill
All this data is potentially out of date, and should be taken with a truckload of salt
Since Dominion, faction ships have received a serious overhaul, and the Hookbill is no exception. Once boasting a passive shield tank that a cruiser would be proud of, and a weapons layout similar to the Merlin, the Hookbill has since exchanged a respectable bonus to shield HP for a respectable bonus to missiles, trading in its two turret and two missile slots for three missile slots.
While the Hookbill bares some resemblance to the Merlin, it would be more accurate to call it a beefed up Kestrel, considering that it is a missile boat that can deliver more damage from a longer range than the Kestrel, while being able to host a tank equal to that of a Merlin, making this an very good low level PvE ship.
