Introduction

Classic Jihad was the original tactic developed and still employed by JihadSwarm today. It involves a 1 on 1 confrontation with a target, usually resulting in more tears than some of the other jihad techniques. Simply put, you load yourself up with as much weapons and DPS as possible and blast away at a target before CONCORD kills you.

Targets

Image:Osamabee.jpg
  • Hulks or Mackinaws mining in ice belts are your primary target.
  • Hulks located in regular asteroid belts.
  • Industrial ships (Badgers, Mammoths etc).

Tricks

Offensive drones trick - get within range of your target, lock him, and pop drones. Engage first with drones and only activate turrets/scrams/etc once the message pops up that you have taken a sec hit. This way your drones will not have to waste time targeting your hulk or mackinaw while your turrets plink away.

Defensive drones trick If you want to avoid a sec hit, attack a hulk with combat drones out. If they auto-agress on you while you're popping his ship (they usually do), you will avoid the sec hit from killing the Hulk.

Concord trick - See here for information how to move concord.

War Decs everywhere - If the hub stations or gates are camped with war decs constantly there are two things you can do.

  • Fit all low slots with Warp Core Stabilizers and Inertia Stabilizers to align fast and get out. This usually works unless they have a Heavy Interdictor (check first). Keep your Jihad lowslots in your cargo hold and swap once you are in the target area. Undocking in this manner is risky as hell since your Jihad BS or BC is so easy to bump.
  • Train an alt to fly the hulls that you use to Jihad. Before you insure the ship, trade it with the NPC char and have him move it to a target area. Trade back and insure.

Tanks - Some targets fit tanks. If you see any of these on scan you may need help to kill the target. While more challenging, such targets often provide more tears once their illusion of safety has been shattered.

  • Medium Shield Extender
  • Damage Control II
  • Invulnerability Field

Implants

You will likely never get podded, so use these but keep in mind that while crim flagged (after suicide) anybody can pod you in highsec so don't sit around.

With your suicide vested Mujahadeen character waiting one jump out, warp to a planet with many belts. Scan down hulks and systematically check their fittings (for the unitiated, to use a passive targeter you click the module, which gives you a crosshair mouse cursor, then click on the infidel in space or on your overview. They will not see that you have locked them). Ship scan them several times, as it doesn't necessarily show all of their fittings on any given scan. When you find a suitable target, set up a warpin for your brother to show them the way to Hell. There's no reason to jihad the chink with nothing fitted but t1 strip miners when there's inevitably a rigged hulk with t2 miners and maybe even a B-Type booster nearby.

Remember to loot and salvage both wrecks! Trial accounts can't use contracts so be sure to trade the loot back to a subscribed character at a station while you wait out the criminal timer.

Allah approved suicide vests

Fitting a ship is usually quite easy. Follow these rules to create the most effective setup.

  • Do not fit a tank at all, as Concord will instantly pop you when they spawn.
  • Fit as many damage boosters (heat sink's, gyros, etc..) that you can. If you have low skills fit 2 tech II boosters for the greatest effect. Use named otherwise.
  • Fit the largest guns with the closest range. Lowest or second lowest named weapons are typically cheaper than T1, and are much better.
  • Use faction ammo for everything except for Amarr (which is not cost effective). Have a bit more ammo then you need to complete the gank.
  • Use extra lows for Inertia stabs.
  • Fit target painters if you are using larger weapons.
  • Fit at least one Warp Scrambler. This requires you to engage within 7500M.
  • Load the hardest hitting drones you can fit 5 of.
  • For Smartbombs, see Mad Bombers.
  • Use the Jihad Calculator spreadsheet to estimate if your ship setup will do sufficient damage to destroy your target.

This ship solves a lot of issues with the below setup. Instead of having to get a perfect warpin spot, you can warp anywhere between 15-35km. Sentry drones perform insta DPS on the target instead of having to get in range with Ogres. The costs are comparable to lose. I've instapopped some Mackinaws, and two-shotted some Hulks. Swap out a 'skadi' heat sink with a T2 heat sink if you think you need a bit more DPS.

Armageddon is the ship of God, so it makes sense to use this monster. It is cheap and has a low total isk loss after insurance. You can pretty much solo any mining ship with this beast. Replace 3 of the Heat Sinks with T2 versions if you know they have a decent tank. If the target is expecting it, replace the Target Painter with a Sensor Booster.

Muhammed wrote that that for a thorax, if you have heat, cruiser V, and medium hybrid turret V, you can suicide most hulks in a .5 or .6 system. If you don't have that, two thoraxes will kill any hulk in .5 to .7 (including one hulk with a deadspace booster so far). One thorax teamed with one other of any of the other races' bullshit cruisers will probably work, too. If you want to change any of this, put an RCU in the lows and use a 10mn MWD.

This can solo most hulks if you have decent battlecruiser skills and is only about 5m per loss. Use this if you have good battlecruiser skills. If you don't, just use a thorax and team up with someone else.

The named modules are not needed and are fairly hard to find outside Jita, basic T1 is fine. Most of the Brutix kills use standard Neutron blasters.

The brutix is the king of suiciding hulks. If you don't know what ship to fly, it should be a brutix.

So your Battlecriuser skills stink? Still want to punish the wicked all by your lonesome? Try this baby - it solos lightly tanked exhumers in .7, but unfortunately costs twice as much to lose as the Brutix - my cost was 10m at current Jita prices. To use, find a target, hit approach and activate your MWD, Set everything to Prefire, when you get to 3000m launch your drones and target. Once your target is complete all of your modules will activate and your drones should begin attacking, if they dont mash an "engage target" hotkey to get them on task.

This setup is for those of you who can't fit a Dominix using the above setup due to powergrid restrictions. Setup gives 1180~ DPS and 4050~ alpha (dependent on skills).
