I'm exploring options at the moment. I use dot run c4's a year or so ago with 4 tengus. But my work schedule makes it hard to cordinate, so i am wondering if anyone knows of a ship that i can have that will solo a c4. Note i will not live in the c4 so a carrier is out, i did a google search but found nothing difinative, any ideas?

if its not possible thats ok, i have a plan b, but if there is a setup that can either solo or duel box it, that would be nice.

salvagers wont do you any good in the high slots on a marauder. I would go with smartbombs and heavy nosferatus for the utility high slots

IT'S HARD TO READ BORSEK SOME OF US HAVE DYSLEXIA. The rest are just too lazy or dumb.

OP, pls pimp fit your marauder, you'll need all the tank and DPS possible to kill sleepers.

If you want glorious lossmails do this.

You can in a marauder, but I'd probably recommend remote repping tengu's (3 should be enough).

You can see the sticky thread on the top of this page that says "What do I bring to Kill Sleepers!".

Yaay!!!!

You need 2 RR Tengus for every C3 site except for Sleeper Information Sanctums, you need 3 for those unless you're in a Cata or Pulsar. Maybe only 2 if you have max boosts, but it'll be pretty spooky for a bit.

Message me in game and I can link you the fit I used to solo every site in a c4 including data/relic which is where you have to worry.

Why smartbombs? sleepers damn sure don't come close enough to use them.
NOS is also pointless. The only BS that come in range to nos are safeguards/defenders. The only bs that nuet in C4 sites are upholders{60k orbits} & safeguards. SiS second spawn is 1 safeguard nos & 3 defenders. Kill the safeguard first = no more nos. It does more dps by itself than the next wave. Frontier barracks second spawn is like 3 or 4 upholders. Can't nos them, out of range.
If your running IT or FCC in a marauder, then your past hopeless...

Salvagers are more useful.
In case of pvp, refitting of the depot like a pro is much more useful. 3 lg nuets, 2 md nuets, & 2 small nuets, stabs, cap booster, ASB will save ur ass.

All you do to survive neut waves is drops some of those application mods for cap rechargers and flux coils.

The only c4 neuts you ever have to worry about are during all battleship waves anyways. Mobile depot is your best friend, bring everyone from webs to paints.

I concur, Adriana. While the pvp reffiting part is interesting, soloing in a marauder is perfectly doable, although not very wise, given bad risk/reward. Faction smartbombs are the easiest and fastest way to kill the sleeper frigates, you just have to be careful not to bomb the BS wrecks. Refitting for nosferatus will keep you cap safe, the neuting pressure can run high sometimes, even though it's way worse when soloing C5s. Refitting for a MJD can be an awesome time saver, specially when using pulse lasers in a Paladin. These sites go down fast in the classic Nightmare, but only for experience's sake (4b ship?).
Well, more expensive targets anyway, why not help them out.

Thank you for the awesome C5 video and fittings. Have you tried them in TQ?

yes, if you talk to any major c5 corp, hard knocks, lazerhawks, ssc, ect... They all use marauders to run sites in c5s pretty extensivly

p.s. smartbombs dont destroy wrecks

imperial navy smart bombs hit to 7500m and most sleeper frigs will orbit you around 7000. As far as i am aware it also doesnt matter what you put the NOS on. every npc has infinite cap so you can NOS them all, so leaving a cruiser or frig alive and trigger the next waves is a valid option imho
