So I currently make the majority of my isk in wormholes. Empty, occupied, don't really care so long as there's not somebody with a bigger ship in there at that specific moment. I do this using my Hurricane, but I'm starting to wonder if i'd be better off in a Drake. It wouldn't take me more than a week or so to cross-train to one, so I'd like to get people's opinions.

If the Hurricane, am I better to have the 'Cane armor-tanked or shield-tanked? I'm using a dual-repped armor tank setup at the moment as the 'Cane is clearly supposed to be armor-tanked, but that makes my DPS suffer; I only have room for one gyro and I'd like to take two. A corp mate linked me to a shield-tanked hurricane for wormholing and while it would definitely give me more DPS, I'm not so sure about its resists.

I'll post the two complete builds when I get home, but from memory the fits are something like this:

Wormhole Hurricane, armor-tanked

High:
6x 425 autocannon II
1x Probe launcher
1x Improved cloak

Mid:
1x Meta 3 MWD
3x Cap recharger

Low:

2x Medium armor repairer II
1x Gyrostabiliser II
1x Explosive armor hardener I
1x Thermic armor hardener I
1x Kinetic armor hardener I
(no T2 hardeners yet)

Rigs:
1x Explosive armor rig
2x Cap control circuit

Wormhole Hurricane, shield-tanked

High:
6x 425 autocannon II
1x Probe launcher
1x Improved cloak

Mid:
1x Afterburner 2
2x Large shield extender
1x Invulnerability field

Low:

2x Gyrostabiliser II
3x Shield power relay
1x Damage control II

Rigs:
1x EM Shield rig
2x Shield recharge rig


So, would I be better with one of those fits, or with a drake?

imo its better to armor buffer/nano tank the cane, and go dual web.

ANYWAY I WOULD USE A SHIELD TANK IMO, TRY THE FIT THAT YOU HAVE AND SEE HOW IT DOES
