I'm setting up a mini-op into W-space, and wanted to run it like this:

Jumping in from hi-sec, will be looking for a lower class WH.
Mainly going in as a mining experiment, so the crew is going to look like this:
Char 1: Myrmidon
Char 2: Maller
Char 3: Ocra, with Hulk (C1) and Retriever (C2) in Ship Maintainance bay

My question is: Can a myrm and a maller take out the sleeper spawns at a grav site in a lower class WH system? I chose those two ships because they can both fit into the ship bay on the Orca when they swap out for their mining vessels.

Secondary question: If it's possible, what kind of fitting am I looking at for them? Both combat characters can only fit medium, tech 1 weapons, but can fit T2 armor mods.

You're going to have a hard time with it using smaller ships like that. You probably won't have too much trouble with a grav site in a class 1 or class 2 site, esp if you set the two ships up to remote rep each other along with a decent local tank. The t1 weapons will slow you down in killing the sleepers. In a class 1 you'll likely only have to deal with up to 4 frigates or two cruisers. A class 2 or three you may have to deal with 4 cruisers and that might be too much for your two ships.

Low end sites with frigates only, probably. Trade up that second Maller to a Harbinger if you want some peace of mind when you fight cruisers.

Close range, high damage, high tracking. Webs and painters can help. Armor reps. Bit of a buffer.

Now I'd like to take a moment and ask that you think this through: Dont mine in a belt with an Orca. That ore bay is awfully temping, I know, but you've got to be strong.

An orca in a belt is a wet dream- in fact I caught an Orca in a belt the other day. You can be certain I ruined the guy's day.

Ok, so more general then... class 1-2, would it be ok to run a Brutix + Harbinger with the two combat characters (both with remote repair modules), then have either one or both of them jump back for mining vessels along with the third character?

I switched the concept from Myrmidon to Brutix when blasters were mentioned over rails. Does that sound about right? I haven't been in a wormhole since day 1 of Apocrypha. :)
