I was just curious as to what the minimum ship realistically is for running different Anomalies. I was just thinking about running around in lowsec for a bit just running Anoms, but I was wondering if a decent Caracal would be able to handle them or if I'd need my Drake instead.

Caracal would be pretty

I'm not sure how helpful "pretty" is. Would it be effective at clearing out the sites or would it not have enough tank/DPS?

It would take you a very long time to clear out just 1 lowsec anomaly in a Caracal. Use a Drake.

lol, yeah, I found that out the hard way. I ended up just going and testing it out with a Caracal and ended up orbiting a BS rat and we couldn't break each other's tanks (I actually got through his tank, but only after I went and bought 3 HMLs and overheated them). After 4 more BSes spawned from that, I gave up and just got the Drake, lol. It was a fun evening though (it reminded me of the first time I took down a belt BS in a Rifter, 2 hours of work, but definitely worth it, lol)

I'm honestly not sure what you're trying to ask.

you said you got bored off shooting bs in caracal and bought 3rd HML, so i assume you have been using 2 HML's previously

No, I had been using a rack of AMLs, but I went and looked on the market and found a couple HMLs two systems over and I went and bought 3 (all they had).

And the reason I did that rather than just go get my Drake is that the Drake was 10 jumps away.

You're not ready for Lowsec anoms if you plan on fighting Battleships in a Carcal with weaponry designed for killing frigates.

Get a Drake with full rack of Heavy Missile Launchers and then we'll talk.

I do have a Drake with full T2 HMLs. I wasn't sure that lowsec anoms spawned BSes though. I was able to do all of the frig/cruiser/BC targets there fine, which was what I was expecting.

Taking on the BS with the Caracal was just because it spawned and I said "what the heck". I'm not trying to go make a ton of ISK running lowsec anoms, I was just bored one day and felt like trying it, but I didn't feel like going all the way to get my Drake, that's all.

For future reference, Ports, Hubs, Havens and Sanctums will always spawn battle ships. Forlorn Dens will as well.
