Is this possible? I'm currently building a Rorqual for the corp, and we're training for a booster, but I saw that Rorqual's can fit warfare links. Does this mean a Rorqual could fit Siege, Armored, and Skirmish links and boost all 3 for fleet?

From within your POS shield you can't activate them, only mining links.

Yes it could fit them, you would however lose out on mining links that way, and fitting more than 3 links leads to a need to sacrifice tank for more CPU and warfare processors, this means a reduction in available low and mid slots at the same time on a ship that cant activate them inside a shield, and is a giant 2.5b ISK target that pretty much anyone with ammo wants to shoot.

In my opinion its more efficent to keep the rorqual in the POS Boosting if possible ( note they cant enter highsec Just in case you didnt know ) and then keep a command ship outside ( or t3 ) for additional links. Yes it takes an extra pilot and extra effort, but it does mean you wont lose 2.5b And your links to a simple error watching D-Scan just at most a few hundred million and maybe a pod

So I could have it sit at 0 on a station boosting 3 warfare links?

As long as you dont use the Indu Core that could work, but why not just use a T3 or Command Ship for the same purpose and use the Skill lvl bonus?

Yes, but for that price you can use a t1 BC instead (2x command processors) or even an orca to give boosts.
Basicly anything that can use warfare links is better at it than a Rorqual :P
