    Highs:
    Heavy Laucher II x7
    Scourge Fury Missles Loaded and in cargo with few FOFs in Cargo (at least one load per laucher)
    Small Neut II or Small Shield Transport (Depending on gang or not)

    Mids:
    Large Shield Ext. II x2
    Large F-S9 Shield Ext x1
    3 slots for PVP gear: Typically Sensor Booster II with Scan Res. Script, Warp Disrupter II and Stasis Web II

    Lows:
    Power Relay II x4

    Rigs:
    Core Defence Field Purger x3

    Drones:
    Usually Hornet EC-300x5 but lately with nano gangs Webber drone more useful

    Note: This is a very tight fit and I have very specific skills as well as 1 implant that makes it fit.
    At work atm and cant think what the implant is called right now.
    This setup was developed in low sec pirating. Not necessarily ideal for fleet ops. Can solo kill another BC with gate gun fire.

    Will swap out tackle gear for Photon Scattering Array II (1st) and Invul field (2nd) if have plenty of tackle in gang.
    Very effective solo PVP setup vs. standard ships (non-nano)

    Ratting: Use Standard EM and Thermal Ammo, Salvager in last high slot, Photon Scattering Array II, Heat Dissipation Array II, Invul Field II. Light dronesx5.
    Probably wanna swap one or two Shield power relays for Ballistic Contorl II to help with DPS. Tank is more than sufficent.

    Bait: Drop One Launcher, Two small neuts, 3 LSE II, Photon Scattering Array II, Invul Field II, Warp Disrupter, Hornet EC-300x5.
    Idea is let them think you are easy prey. Warp Disrupter is to keep the guy you want dead the most there when the gang comes. No fun being bait if the fish shakes
    the hook off.

    Stole this off one of bug's killmails :) looks solid enough and tanks like a son of a bitch. Put on a microwarp if going roaming somewhere.

    i highly recommend the setup given by the esteemed Ravechyld. It is the result of many fitting discussions which we had, and he has had extreme success with it. Rave is probably the best drake pilot I know.

    Just to make sure we all know, though, the Drake is much more of a low-sec ship than a 0.0 ship.

    Nice little setup I ran this morning with and liked. Packs fairly nice dps for a HML drake, has a great tank, and is very agile. The nanofiber is really worth it as it makes the ship so much more nimble. I can't use t2 launchers yet, but even so I don't believe they would fit as my CPU is completely maxed with setup, can't even fit a t2 cloak. I would consider swapping out a BCS for a cpu enhancer in order to fit a t2 cloak and t2 launchers (should be able to fit either hml's or ham's with this)(edit: Cannot fit HAMS under any conditions with this setup, nvm that) and still keep an amazing tank and great dps. Goal for this setup is more bait/damage dealer in a gang then solo ganking.

    EDIT: Heres the same setup but with t2 HML's and t2 cloak, this can be fit with a 3% pg implant and adv wpn upgrades 3.

    510 DPS with Fury, 377 with Precision (mind you this is only 2 BCS now instead of 3) it is defiantly worth it to go this route instead if you have t2 hml skills.

    Dont put a nanofiber on a drake, dont put a co-pro on a drake, more often than not dont put a disruptor on a drake (tank gimp -- fly with a ceptor friend) and use Navy Scourges for pvp. Also, drop those extender rigs, even with the nano you're still slower than a lot of ships, considerably compared to other BCs either fit for damage or tank or do the HAM drake setup tbh.

    I dunno, the pure buffer tanks on a drake never seem to turn out well in PvP, you'll go down surprisingly quick with just a bit of pressure and dont use fury missiles unless your shooting other battlecruisers or higher and can afford the cap loss.

    Yea I agree the co-pro on the 2nd is a little over the top just to fit all the stuff, but with the cost of best named hml's using t2's is much more practical. Nano was put there because there is no remaining cpu for anything else, its better then nothing and makes the ship quite a bit more agile then I expected out of a drake. I do have a passive recharging drake just like the rest of the crowd but that setup is nothing new and has already been posted. I like the passive recharging setup more for solo pvp yes, but thats not what this setup was really intended for. Warp distrupter can be swapped for sensor booster depending on the situation, and is likely more practical to overcome the scan res penalty from a cloak and the fact this is more of a gang setup it isn't really needed. The only thing I hate about a passive recharging drake is their lack of dps, and I hate the lack of tank on a HAM drake (and I don't have the skills to make it practical), this was setup to be an in between, having a descent tank without sacrificing your dps. With a passive recharge setup the core of the defense comes from its 4x shield power relays, losing 2 of these for BCS's makes the HAM drake a much more practical setup as it does higher dps and can fit roughly the same tank.
  6.  
    Why not try this then. Make a agility drake with sensor boosters and target painters to be used like the caracal. Sit off about 50k+ and lob missiles for major support damage.
  7.  
    also I dunno about the "lack of tank on HAM drake" you still have more buffer than any other BC and very good damage.

    good buffer setup. I like that this setup does not require major skill training. I would however swap the nos for a neut. Really nothing there that is going to use alot of cap, so the extra amount removed from the enemy benefits you more than the smaller amount you can gain. If not need for fitting all this may wanna drop the power diagnostic for a dmg control.
