just wondering, a stealth bomber, with all the necessary skills to lvl 4 and 5, also cruise missiles lvl 4 (other missile skills 4 and 5 as well), how much dmg will it put out against cruisers and frigates that don't have a mwd fit? considering it only fires cruise missiles?

Mwd fit or not, if it catches up with them it'll still do around the same damage. It's hard to make a sum up with variating resistances but with high skills against an untanked hull it should be almost 1000 damage a missile.

I have an alpha of 2600 damage with cov ops 4 and all missile skills to 4 or 5. (And faction ammo)

If the target isn't moving, you will hurt it.

do target painters make the cruise missiles do more dmg and also, what rigs would you suggest to help the dmg against MOVING targets. minus explosion radius or explosion velocity?

There is no module to help increase damage to anything moving, unless you're talking about webs.

With tackle, a pair of SBs can wreak a lot of havoc, and a solo SB can alpha frigs and destroyers... without tackle, a group of a hundred are going to lose to one, lone inty.

Target painters won't help unless you're shooting at frigates as stealth bombers already have a 5/6 reduction to explosion radius.

Rigs will be tricky to fit as you're very short on CPU with a regular stealth bomber fit and since stealth bombers are very fragile, you might not want to increase your ISK loss when you lose it.

If you're dead set on it, calefaction and flare catalyst rigs are what you're after.

Only if the signature of target is smaller then sig resolution of cruises (which it almost never is with the SB's bonus).

Rapier+Arazu. Alternatively, missile speed rigs and missile explosion velocity rigs. However, you still don't want to be close to targets where you could potentially tackle them, bombers are paper-thin.
