Hi there

I'm planning to bring my Sleipnir into lowsec for combat sites (signatures).

As i have absolutely no experience with it vs. NPCs, would you rather recommend 720s over 425 ACs ?
The range on arties is very nice, but i have my doubts about dps.

This would be my autocannon fit:

h: 7x 425s, improved cloak
m: gist x-type LSB, 2 hardeners, shield boost amplifier II, y-t8 mwd
l: 4x RF gyro, 1x TE II
rigs: 2x cap control circuit II
three hammerheads two hobgoblins

A bit pricey, but i will use a scout when going through gates. Perhaps upgrading the mwd to deadspace for less cap penalty at a later time.
What are your opinions? I would love to use an AB instead of a MWD for more speedtanking, but the MWD helps a lot when things go south at gates.

Mainly i will be looking for (minor) annex sites and the occasional 6/10.

first if you are set on not using a dc2 then go with 3 gyros and 2 tracking mods...

have you tested yer fit in a mission at least yet? say something compareable to what sites you will be doing.
i see no cap booster and you are flying an active sleip if you get in trouble yer skrewed with only a lsb. granted i dont pve in mine only the occasional belt jacking around, i would prolly ask if someone that uses it for this purpose has a passive fit,as you cannot carry many cap boosters if you chose to change it up. unless yer scout alt is in a cloaky hauler. still i think i would use a cane or something else imo...

also you are gonna be a lol km when die in lowsec with a cloak on a sleip..

Medium drones are pretty terrible against elite frigates - you would be better off with a full set if light drones.

Where exactly do you plan on doing these "Combat Sites".
You should aim to do them around "Angel Rat" space, if anything due to the naturally high Exp / Therm resistances.

actually base sleipnir resists are: 62 50 40 50. Highest being em and lowest kinetic.

There was an expert forum user - she got banned during the monocle revolts - she said she loved doing C3 WH's with arties sleipnir. You do have the bonus to falloff but medium guns are medium guns - AC's are good up to 15-20 km but more than that you'll have too many half hits and outright misses.

I myself did arties sleipnir in an incursion mom site - with t2 ammo I could still hit up to 100 km. Yes - your ROF is terrible but your range makes up for it.

Go for arties (gah I never thought I'd say that).
