Jump to: navigation, search


A fleet is a devastating vehicle of war which will strike fear into those who come across it. A fleet which has eyes and ears in systems many jumps away, co-ordinating it's attacks and allowing it to land on top of its targets with deadly accuracy is something to be truly feared by any pilot in New Eden. The people who allow the fleet to operate in this way are the CovOps pilots, observing and feeding intelligence to the Fleet Commander. They need to be able to move without being seen or targeted, take up positions where they can observe the enemy and call in the Wolfpack when the precise moment for organized mayhem has arrived.

The course will teach you the advantages and disadvantages of the various Covert Operations frigates along with advice on fitting your ship to make the best of its abilities. You will learn how to move without being seen and how to perform evasive manoeuvres should you be trapped by the enemy. The course will also teach you how to take up positions where you can safely observe the enemy in such a way as to be able to supply all the information a Fleet Commander will ever need to know. Specific sniper training is done to enable you to bring down the enemy lurking at long range.

The AU PvP CovOps course is an advanced level course with a number of pre-requisites. It requires the knowledge accumulated over both the PVP-BASIC and PVP-WOLFPACKS courses. If you do not have the pre-req skills or courses then please do not sign up.

DISCLAIMER: Due to the high cost of the ships and modules used in this course, by signing up you are accepting that there is a level of risk where your ship and modules may be lost. The aim of the course is to minimize this risk and losses are not expected. However, neither Agony Unleashed nor its instructors can be held responsible for the loss of ships or equipment for the duration of the course. Students may decline to take part in any part of the course they wish.


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. Please pay special attention to the naming conventions for bookmarks as these seem to trip up a lot of students. There is nothing wrong with having the bookmarks article open during class and referring to it when needed. If you merely skim or read the articles and do not study them in advance you could end up lost very fast. 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.
