Anyone know of proven methods of taking out Drone fleets? Expecially these new Ogre things which, for some reason ah 1/10th the size of a frigate are about as well defended)?

ecm burst will jam the drones, then when they are jammed you can concentrate on taking out the drone carrier. Smile

But don't the drones use the capital ship's locking? Also the Orge engages and kills at 15km, outside of burst range.

I think you can use your ships targeting to force the drones to aquire a specific target, but they do have their own targeting systems. You can see this as they continue to engage other targets even if your ship hasn't locked them once they've gone on the offensive.
