When alliances and corporations have sufficient power, you will start seeing the introduction of capital ships into the fleets. As a pilot in that corporation it will fall to you to help support the operations of the capital ships and do so in a manner that will not endanger the capital ships. Dropping cynosural fields for capital ships is a task not to be taken lightly as it can cause the loss of a capital ship if done incorrectly.
This seminar will instruct you in the the placement and use of cynosural fields and covert cynosural fields. In addition you will learn the issues around logistical shipping using Carriers, Rorquals, and Jump Frieghters.You will learn how to use checklists for cynosural jump operations and act as remote reconnaissance for your capital fleet, detecting and evaluating threats. By the time you are done with this course you should be able to serve as a support pilot to capital ship pilots and be able to act as a quartermaster packing for capital ship logistic operations. You will learn how to put down a cyno and actually survive its deployment and how to maximize resources
The instructor will assume that you have studied the articles relevant to the class prior to attending class. You can find those relevant articles listed below in the index for your convenience. Remember that in PvP University classes, it is your responsibility to do the learning. We can only provide the information, you have to decide to learn it. The well prepared student has read all of the articles at least once, and preferably more times, and has set aside the time to attend the class from other obligations. Furthermore, the eager to learn student will turn off the TV and other distractions and devote their attention to the class.
No courses are required for attendance.
The more core skills that the pilot has, the more dangerous they will be. Although there is almost always a push for people to get in bigger ships, a better investment in training time would be in the core skills such as navigation, electronics, mechanic, engineering, gunnery, missiles, drones and so on. Therefore, the following skills represent an absolute minimum set of skills needed to take the course. The instructors of the class recommend that you focus on many skills including these.
- Cynosural Field Generation 3+
- Skills such as those needed to fly a Cyno ship detailed in the materials.
It will be assumed by the instructor that all of the following preparation has been done prior to the start of the course. The instructor will assume you have read all articles and wont rehash them completely. Furthermore, the instructor will not make the entire class wait if you are not present or don't have your headset working.
- Read all articles indexed below.
- Buy and fit one ship and move them to the course location.
- Come on Ventrilo before the course to verify that your microphone and headset are working.
- Arrive BEFORE the class and set your clone location and make sure your clone is up to date.
Due to the high value equipment being used in this seminar, the class will be run on the Singularity test server. Please refer to the articles for this seminar on how to set up your test server client. Also make sure your character has the required skills on the test server. It may have been some time since the test server was mirrored and you might need to train the skills there. Fortunately +5 implants are to be had on the test server for 100 isk.
- What kind of Ship do we need for the course?
- Please see the articles on the seminar.
- What qualifications does this class give me within AGONY
- Graduates will be considered as having passed the practical portions of the Capital Support Operations Certification. You will still need to answer theory questions.
