Seemed like a fun idea. Will the speed keep me alive or will I die quickly to cruiser/BC guns? Could use any advice you guys have. Thanks.

you could most likely survive most missions with the speed tank, but you might die of old age trying to kill all the BC's and cruisers with the lack of firepower. Still, for fun it's quite possible if you are tanked correctly...

I've used a Retribution in many L3 missions. However, there have been some that I just wasn't able to complete. Any mission with NPCs that web is dangerous, and sometimes there was a bit of warping out to repair.

I've started to prefer my Harbinger because of the added damage from drones. I also have the option of replacing a Cap Recharger with a Web for faster targets, where the Retribution had only a single Med slot which meant giving up my afterburner.

I really didn't have much trouble with Cruisers and Battlecruisers in the Retribution. I never encountered one of the rare L3 Battleships, but I certainly did fear stasis webs and anything that was faster than my guns at close range... which were usually other frigates with webs. Very Happy

I do L3s in a blaster Harpy. It takes a while, of course, but you won't die unless you get webbed. And if you do get webbed, you will die.

I've used a Jaguar for some level IIIs (and some 3 - 4/10 DED sites). It works fine for the DED sites (since I can blitz it). However, I found that the Jag lacked DPS and things took forever to kill... on top of that you'll blow through ammo if you are short range (and still probably long range since they are only smalls). Oh, and I have run into problems when you get webbed... it doesn't take long for your tank to bust when you get webbed.

Try it, but I strongly recommend just coughing up the isk for a battlecruiser.
