Looking for a Caldari ship that can easily solo C1 wormholes.

Just looking to dip my feet into exploration and find out what wormholes are all about. I'm already training Caldari so that would be fastest.

Looking for fairly cheap or easy to train to so preferably the lowest class of ship that can do it without it being a nightmare in difficulty. Also perhaps covert ops?

Is there a perfect ship that fits this criteria?

Nothing covert ops?

Can cruisers do it?

You have no weapons in a cov-ops so no you can't do it, although you can scan sites down first if you dualbox, and then bring in another ship.

Best Recon for exploration is a Pilgrim at the moment. If you want a cruiser sized hull, look at a Vexor (not sure you can tank sleepers though), Navy Caracal might do it too. Caldari recons are not so good for exploration unless you use a Rook (no cloak, however).

Stick with the ubiquitous Drake and you will be fine, am pretty sure you can fit a BufferPVP style fit and do C1s, but am not a Drake expert for wormholes.

As has been said, a CovOps doesn't have the tank or gank for it. And there's no T1 cruiser that will be able to do it (a Caracal might put up a good show of it, but even in C1s you'd end up warping off if you're doing anything but clearing belt/gas rats (where there are 2-4 frigs and that's it).

As people have said, the Drake is THE ship to do it in. And if you can't afford the 40-50M to fit and insure a Drake, you probably don't have the SP to reasonably take on a WH anyways (not trying to be callous, but WHs are designed as very high level PvE). On the bright side, a fully insured Drake will only loose you a few M when it dies, so make sure you insure.

Ok, well on that note, if a Drake is my goal, then can it solo higher wormholes?

I figure that I might as well get the most I can out of it and I don't want to sell myself short on just C1s if I can reasonably do C2s or C3s in it.

I would strongly suggest sticking to C1's 'till you're quite comfortable with them (they are still very profitable). A well fit Drake can do C2s fine and some sites in a C3, but you need to know what you're doing and have plenty of skills.

A Drake can do pretty much any low-mid tier PvE you care to name (L3 and under missions, C1/2 wormholes, up to 5/10 plexes, that kind of stuff) and can have a fair stab at some of the higher end stuff as well if you're skilled properly. You'll never be "selling yourself short" by training for or buying a Drake. Never.

A pvp fit drake can easily solo C1s as long as your skills/fit dont suck.

if you want something "cloaky" and caldari, youre going to have to probably go with a cloaky Tengu.
