Can salvage drones salvage large basic sleeper wrecks? At the moment they're just orbiting without even trying, I was wondering if this was a bug or not.

They cannot, they don't have access chance high enough.

Thanks, I'll try and squeeze a salvager on in that case.

Is it just the large sleeper wrecks they cannot salvage or is it impossible for all sleeper wrecks?

You'll have to have a positive salvage chance to be able to salvage, eg. (correct me if im wrong...)

A small wreck, salvaging I your chance to salvage is 30+5=35% per cycle.
A large wreck, salvaging IV your chance to salvage is 10+20=30% per cycle.
A small wreck, Salvager II your chance to salvage is 30+35=65% per cycle.
A small wreck, full gear and skills your chance to salvage is 30+85=115% per cycle.

I've managed to salvage small and medium basic sleeper wrecks with them.
