Drone Boats and Tech 3 Cruisers.

My first Tech 3 cruiser was the Proteus, even though I did 2 articles on the Tengu already. This Proteus was intended to fill a similar role to the tengu, absorbing as much damage as possible while still dealing SOME damage out. In fact, with the right drones, it actually puts more damage out than the Tank Tengu does.

[Proteus, Drone Fun - Dual]
Proteus Propulsion - Interdiction Nullifier
Proteus Offensive - Drone Synthesis Projector
Proteus Engineering - Capacitor Regeneration Matrix
Proteus Electronics - CPU Efficiency Gate
Proteus Defensive - Nanobot Injector

3x 250mm Railgun II (Federation Navy Antimatter Charge M)
Drone Link Augmentor I

3x Cap Recharger II
10MN Afterburner II

2x Medium Armor Repairer II
2x Armor Explosive Hardener II
Damage Control II
Armor EM Hardener II

3x Medium Auxiliary Nano Pump I

5x Hammerhead II

As you can see, part of the tank is speed based, and the other is a dual-repairer based. One thing I do recommend is that you stagger your repairers so that you don't completely waste a repair cycle when you don't need to. The tank on this is solid enough to be able to take Recon Level 4 part 3 no problem, so that's always a good thing. Definitely kill all enemies with webbers first though, since speed is part of the tank of this ship.
