Hi.

I am considering trying some null sec mining.

Any suggestions for how I should equip my Hulk to stand any chance ?

that is a nice loot pinata, unfortunately any bigger spawns are going to ether force you off the belt or if you are unlucky scram and kill you.

if mining in 0.0 you should have an alt kill the rats or do corp ops with support ships that can do that.
in truth rats should be the least of your worries as almost any pvp ship will eat you alive if you are solo.

Are you mining in an alliance system, with lots of alliance eyes and ears in the constellation/region and an intel channel? If it's an alliance mining system, there will most likely be fleets around you can join for mining buff. I do this with my Orca in null - giving 100% boost to members in-field, but also fitting a T2 shield resist gang mod onto it and a shield transfer just in case one of the Hulk/Skiff starts taking too much heat.

Also, none of this Gist rubbish. Far too expensive. All you need is gang assistance and you're good to go. Without it you're going to struggle alone in a field in 0.0 whatever you do.

A mate of mine had a very similar setup and he use to solo mine all the time, he never had any issues with rats or neuts. If you are wanting to tank a few BS rats, you are gonna have to get some deadspace stuff on your ship

if you want to tank belt rats in 0.0 as already mentioned deadspace mods are a must, the real key is the shield booster. the activation cost on those is tiny in comparison to regular small shield boosters, and if i remember correctly they give more hp too.

if you're not willing to drop deadspace mods on your hulk you have two choices, get an alt to deal with rats, or make sure you can dock up and get a ratting ship when they spawn.

gist B-type hardeners are a dirt cheap way to save cpu.
