Whip your fury white tail
The Whiptail is a very special interceptor. It was awarded as Alliance Tournament XII prize to the four top teams. This Guristas branded interceptor packs a good punch along with everything interceptors need. With a bonus to drones and missiles and a bonus for scrambling and disruption range, this little beast could be a perfect duelist! It even has a bonus to shield resistance but remains an interceptor, for which tank is an illusion. The only real issue being cost: just like every other AT ship, it is valued at 100 billion isk.
Down the rabbit hole
This one was only the fourth to die. The pilot, Rina Kondur from INIT. commented on Discord that he “Only wanted to fly it a few times and pass it on to someone else”. He later posted that “It was passed on (…) just only 45mil of it”.
It seems that the only kill the Whiptail had before exploding was a velator, on May the third.
We got a talk with Rina Kondur:
INN > o7
Would you agree to tell me what happened with your Whiptail, and why?
Rina Kondur > I just took it out for a roam, ran into a culture gate camp. There is sadly no good story to it
