TBH...none.

I fly the Hound, A LOT and I can not justify the expense of a rig when the whole point of the ship is cheap DPS.

The things are so fragile that if you sneeze they blow up, so shield and armor rigs are out. Speed ones are out as you spend most of your time cloaked and the benefits during cloaked movement are negligible.

Missile rigs are a maybe but again it comes to cost. I mean you could put some on to help you get frigs and similar crap alone. But then again if your alone in a Bomber you are doing it all wrong.

Missile Speed rigs... they are 25mil for 2... if you cant afford that, stop PVPing right now. gets your cruise missiles close to 7k a second, so they can actually hit something before they can put down their book, call a friend, call another friend, heat up some soup and then warp off.

Those are cheap, but they TRIPLE the cost of the damn thing. It's like stuffing a jet turbine in a Prius, yeah you would get results, but why?

Never said id be alone. Wolf packs Are your friend. Adn Cost was not really a issue.

Sort of a What if thin king on my part.

Seems the issue with the missle rigs is CPU which we really dont have alot of.

I also choose not to rig my Manticores. However if I were to I'd put Warhead Calefaction Catalyst rigs on it for increased missile damage.

If you fall short of volleying a target often times you don't get a second chance. I like being able to instapop other SBs that show up to the fight and those rigs would help ensure I could.

You only need to worry about cost when you screw up and die.
I've lost 3 Manticores out of some 180 kills, and the losses were definetly me being a moron.
I always run 1 Calefaction rig and 1 Auxillary Thruster for better cloaked movement.
2 BCU II plus faction missiles = some 2810 alpha strike, Apparently thats alot since I usually see people acting very proud when they have 2400 alpha.
So you've got good damage and you can maneuver a little better when you need to sneak up on a falcon.
Rig the Bomber!

I put a rigor and calefaction on mine, but if I had the isk back I wouldn't do it again. I have come too close to losing it too many times... If you fit it fairly cheaply, you don't lose a whole lot of alpha and you can afford to play a little riskier. :D
