The various fits on this page are specifically designed to give the best tank possible and offencive caparbility,depending on which version you fly.
It is important to remember that your skills also affect how effective your module are, so focus on the skills that promote your defensive modules as well as your offencive ones, so balance your training plan to suit.
These fits are to be fitted as shown for reasons explained above. They are not a pick 'n' mix sweetie shop remember that.
The Incursion Bar
When you enter an incursion system the influence bar appears at the top left of your screen. It's colour will either be fully red or blue or somewhere in between.
When the bar is fully red (100%) our defencive and offencive systems are serveal reduced, when fully blue after killing mutiple sites it is consider to be 0%.
All the main fits on this page are designed for 0% influence, if we were to fly these fits at high influence and you were targeted you would melt and die before the logi's could lock you let alone rep you.
To combat this we have Hi-Influence fits that are designed to increase the buffer on your tank that will give the logistics more time to lock and rep you.

HQ Fits for Vindicators
Intermediate HQ Vindicator
A substantial upgrade to the T2 fit, as you now have the spareslot to add a tracking computer, allowing you to fit dual drone damage amplifiers for a great DPS gain.
High Influence Fit - Replace
Tracking Computer with the best LSE you have. Replace Drone Damage Amplifiers with the best Tracking Enhancers you have.
It may take some time to get into fleet, upgrading hull is advised with cash from your first incursion or sale of this original ship
Megathron Navy Issue - New Bro Fit - HQ
If you already have a Navy Mega, it is an excellent starter. However if you are moving up from a Hyperion or other t1 hull, or want to start in something a little shinier, it is best to move straight into a Vindicator. The price is only marginally different when incursion income is considered, for a much greater gain.
High Influence Fit - There is NO Hi-Influence fit for this ship as it only has four mid slots, so upgrade your hull as soon as possible.
Upgrading your Ship
So you have been flying your Basic Vindicator for a while developing your skills and making ISK giving you a nice fat wallet.
It is important to uprade in the right sequence. The last thing you do is change your rigs and your EM Ward module, upgrade your invules and other modules first. When the rest is upgraded you can then switch out the T2 thermal rig for the T2 em rig and the EM ward for the Tracking computer
You now have an Intermediate Fit Vindicator congratulations and keep training.
