Overall, the sleipnir is a fun ship and gets the job done, but no ships can beat the dps and tank you can achieve with a battleship. Plus, a command ship is a lot to train for early on, so battleships are easier especially if you use the meta 4 weapons. It took my character about 10 months to get into a command ship.

Yeah I figure I could farm L3s with a Hurricane until my Sleipnir or Loki skills came around, totally avoiding the time spent on battleships and large weapons.  That's a fair amount of time -- it would be kinda nice.  But if they suck at L4s compared to Maelstroms... that'd be a bad move.  But _do_ they suck in comparison? That is the question.  :)

typhoon can do all but the hardest dps missions mealstrom can finish any mission but takes forever untill you get all your skills up. tempest is middle of the road it can tank more then typhoon but not as much as mealstrom but more dmg better tracking.

to be honest if you seriously wanna mission i would advise a dominix as yoru carebare ship

Loki's can definitely run level 4 missions, but they're more expensive than battleships. So it all depends on how much you want to spend and how long you're willing to devote skill training to each ship. I mean, I can afford a nice CNR, but I enjoy using my nighthawk because it's still pretty time efficient and isn't super expensive.
I'm so... I'm so... turned on by the fact he holds my stuff to such high esteem... NO BAD REISEN! Mad Hops... would you be a dear and get a sex change?

i guess you might be right somewhat

maybe

game experience or rl skillpoints:)

I'd say the maelstrom, my loadout that Mad Hops posted will be very effective.

Second place goes to the sleipnir although you'll definitely want some faction mods, faction ammo and especially a good shield booster to get the most out of it:
