The Naga was designed in YC 109 by Corporate Police Force
as an anti-Guristas
ship, sacrificing the usual robust Caldari Navy
standards in favor of supporting battleship-class weaponry. It was rejected by Hyasyoda
management for being overspecialized.
The Naga design remained in the Hyasyoda archives, forgotten (save for a cameo in the Gallente holo-series CPF Blue
). In YC 113 the Caldari Navy entertained contracts for a new tier of gunboat battlecruiser. Hyasyoda quickly submitted and won with the Naga, underbidding both Kaalakiota
The Naga is effective in any campaign where fast, mobile firepower is required.
