The Nidhoggur is the Minmatar carrier. Formerly a powerful remote logistics and drone platform, the Nidhoggur (and carriers in general) were rebalanced in the April 2016 release to become mobile long-range damage dealers. Due to its base speed, non-reliance on low slots (of which it has plenty of), and large fighter damage bonus, the Nidhoggur is the most popular PVE carrier. Nidhoggurs can complete multiple combat anomalies very quickly, especially if equipped with Hyperspatial Accelerator rigs. In PVP, the Nidhoggur is the preferred shield carrier again due to its high damage, agility, and larger fighter bay compared to the Chimera.
