Frigate 5 required for T2 Cruisers?

Asked by

Do you really need Frigate 5 to fly T2 Cruisers? Eve Skill Monitor said no, but Eve Wiki said yes.

Can you link an article from Eve Wiki which says that?

No, definately not. A character could have racial Cruiser trained to 5 (and the associated Adv Cruiser skill such as Logistics) trained and fly the T2 cruiser without taking any racial frig skill to 5. In regards to the response about needing Assault Ships to train HAC, this is true, but you don't need a racial frig skill to train up Assault Ships (though you obviously would to fly one).

In order to fly t2 cruisers (at least that I checked) you only need racial frigate to IV. However, in the case of Heavy Assault Ships for instance, you need Assault Ships to IV, and you cannot train Assault Ships without having a racial frigate at V if I am not mistaken. In the event you already have the Heavy Assault Ships skill trained and are a Caldari pilot, you could gain access to a secondary Racial HAC with only that race's frigate skill trained to IV. I believe this is also the case for HICs (interceptor/interdictor extension) and Recons (Covert Ops Frigate extension) but not the case for Logistics ships.

You actually mistaken, racial frigate 5 is required for specific type of ship, not for assault ships skill. E.g. to fly assault ship you need assault ships skill and racial frigate skill at 5, it is separate requirements.

Serker is correct and this answer is incorrect. There are no racial skill requirements for Assault Ships.

Serker is correct and this answer is incorrect. Whilst you need racial frigate 5 to FLY an assault ship, there are no racial skill requirements for the skills Assault Ships OR Heavy Assault Ships.

Hmm when I checked the Zealot... it says Amarr Frigate iV in game. I was sure it was Frigate V, so maybe they've relaxed the pre-requisite.

One other point. EVE Wiki is maintained like any other Wiki, and incorrect information can seep into it.

However as above, I was sure you needed frigate V!

EDIT: To try and prevent certain people from being confused by what I said, you do not need racial frigate 5 for a T2 cruiser.
