Executioner

The Executioner is a good kiting ship and that is what you should use it for. Do not try to use it as a brawler, there are much better choices for that. Thx to the slot layout you can choose between shield tanking and armor tanking it, both works just fine. It also rather is a ship that works really well as cheap PvP tackler. While you can do PvE with it, there are better ships for that.

1. Executioner, Newbie - PvE - AB (Power Grid Management Level 4, CPU Managment Level 4)

Low Slots:
Emergency Damage Control I
Small 'Accommodation' Vestment Reconstructer I
Prototype Energized Adaptive Nano Membrane I

Med Slots:
1MN Y-S8 Compact Afterburner

Small Auxiliary Nano Pump I

While in PvP I would always fit an MWD on this Ship in PvE an Afterburner works good enough and it frees up some fitting for other things and makes it easier to handle in regards to managing your capacitor. Not that instead of 2 cap rechargers you can also fit one cap recharger and one tracking computer instead. This will make it a bit harder to manage your cap but being able to get some extra range or tracking can be quite useful.

This obviously is not a ship to tank with or to deal huge amounts of damage with. What it can do is get into tackling range fast and keeping it´s range to the target while slowly taking it down. (Fighting ships with a full set of light drones and missiles can be really tough).

This version can take a little bit more damage than the armor version and also is a tiny little bit faster. The Aux Thrusters can be replaced with shield extender rigs to make it even a little bit tankier.

That thing is just amazingly fast for a tech1 Frig (4km/s - without overheating). It still deals up to 107 dps and can take a few hits as it has close to 5k EHP as well. With that fitting it is not only a decent tackler for small gangs, but also is capable of killing stuff solo, but of course as with most kiting ships it can take a little bit to take down the target :).
