Titans are the largest ship type in EVE. They can perform the same fleet functions and support roles as the Mothership (Cloning, Ship maintenance arrays, Ship/Items hangars). They are the only capital ships that can create Jump drive through the use of the Jump Bridge Array, which enables escort and support ships to move from system to system without the aid of a stargate. Even though a Titan is a massive logistical advantage for the individual or Corporation who possesses one, using a Titan in a combat role is often seen as undesirable. While large, their defensive and offensive capabilities are still overshadowed by the Dreadnought and Mothership class capital ships (prior to Dominion, now they have been massively buffed for front-lines use). They do, however, have the capacity to provide more logistical support to a fleet from behind the front lines than any other capital ship, especially when it concerns the Jump Bridge Array. The only real offensive capability of a Titan aside from Capital Sized Weapons is a single target Super-weapon, known as a Doomsday Device. It is capable of destroying capital ships with ease - although only being able to fire it every 10 minutes. While once capable of remotely activating super-weapons at Cynosural Fields, this ability was removed in Revelations 2, requiring Titans to now deploy their super-weapon on the field of battle itself.
The successful construction of a Titan involves months of skill training and research. Currently, a Titan takes approximately eight weeks to build (in real-time), not including its primary components which are required for construction. One Titan class exists for each major faction.
