(Can’t post in Q&A so I’m posting here)
I’m mainly a tackler and frigate (all three types) player, and of late I decided to try out intys. ECMs were pretty fine, but when I tried the recon, I realized that there’s too many modules to choose from, and not enough slots to equip all of them. (The same goes for covert ops, though I haven’t got myself a T2 covert ops to try out yet.)
(BTW, I tend towards more supportive and defensive play. I fly my tackler mainly to kill inty bomb carriers in detonation, or go for hit and run tactics against engies/guards/command fighters. I’m playing my engie as a support ship with heal auras and providing some support fire. My guard frigate is ironically my most offense-oriented ship.)
For recon, I’m stuck between parasitic remod and micro-locator. I don’t really know how to make full use of the former, so I usually use the locator even though I’m not sure how useful it really is and how to best employ them to help my team. For covert ops, I like the way the white noise jammer works, but I’m not sure if its usefulness will outweigh that of the orion or plasma arc module (I have to drop one of them if I want the white noise jammer).
(Also… I got the hawk, but I kinda prefer the bonuses provided by Imperial recon intys. Any suggestions about which is better?)
