Because you could put something useful in there. It only takes a min to swap them out and you know which you will need before you enter the site.
You may believe this or not, but a minute is too much. I'm not kidding here.
Exploration is good business, and good business attracts a lot of competition.
It hasn't been the first time that I clear the site and then find someone warping in looting half the hacking cans.
That's why I came up with flying a SB in the first place. It's fast, has a decent align time and can pactically kills frigs without the need of a tank.
And yes I could use an alt...but I'm one of those jack asses that refuses to pay twice the price for optimal profit.
Okay maybe I'm a bit exaggerating....but the goal here is to improve the time needed to get from the station, to the point you're looting the cans.
If there's another ship that can do it faster, then please tell me so.
So all you need is an MWD to get from your sniping range to the cans. I haven't tested the SB yet, that will be something for later.
Ideally I would have a cruiser class covops, that can fit everything I need in one ship. Scan probe time reduction on the ship, maybe even reduction on the analyzer/codebreaker modules is a dream for every exploration pilot.
The covops fits the roll of "finder" perfectly, but even thinking about killing anything (even a frig) in a covops is ridicilous.
You lose 2 highs and 2 meds to utility equipment only. (I actually use a covops cloak to sit on a "scan hit" so the competition can't probe me out while I'm on the spot.)
I've thought about using a wolf as well, the problem here is that you need to fit a tank, but I need inertia/nano's in the lows... (and the mids for the tools ofcourse)
Anyway, please feel free to correct me on my thoughts, just thinking out loud here....
What would you put in the mid slot you gain from not fitting both tools?
