A Pre-Crucible and Post-Crucible Rail-fit Brutix - and a surprise.

This is Brutus. I've used him to solo Incursion beacon sites. He'd be really bad at it, if he weren't so hard headed. I won't bore you with a whole lot of fitting details. A picture is worth a thousand words. So, here are two-thousand words for you.

As you can see, Brutus got a nice new paint job. I especially like the Gallente Federation emblems on forehead and the top of each wing.

As for the rest, at first you want to believe there's not much difference in the CPU and Power Grid between the two. However, a closer look at the numbers shows that capacitor use is down from -32.23 GJ/s to  -28.9 GJ/s. That's approximately 10%. Brutus also picks up nearly 80 MW on the power grid. And this is a rail fit, it doesn't even get the best bonuses. The blaster fit will follow tomorrow. Unfortunately SiSi went down for maintenance before I could swap guns.

One last thing I noted while on SiSi tonight. I had to jump 2 systems to get more ammo for the rails. (I wanted to see how the DPS calculation looked.) As usual, I found what I wanted on the market and did a right-click, location, set as destination. Man was I surprised when my autopilot took me all the way to 10 km off the station. That's correct, it didn't disable after the last gate. It dropped warp 10 km away from the station, approached and DOCKED. I guess I missed that in the update notes. It was a real surprise, let me tell you.

Fly careful.

Be civil, be responsible and most of all be kind. I will not tolerate poor form. There will be no James Hooks here. We are all better than that.
