NPC Mining fleet hauler

So I have seen a Impel spawn for a retriever fleet, tried to kill it but didnt have the extra points to hold it down (impel has +2 warp core).

Today i saw a venture fleet hoping the hauler would be something easier but watch it for an hour with no hauler spawning.

So does the venture fleets have haulers? If not do they not reward any loot at all?

From my observations on SISI all mining operations eventually spawn a hauler. It can just take a long time (I sat for 90mins once). The miners themselves never drop anything other than the ore they mine (might salvage though, never tested).

These new NPC's cheat like crazy.
With marauder in bastion mode they'll scramble you, web you, disrupt you ... everything.

Damn that was my next test (use a marauder). But yes the response fleets are very capsuleer like in the way they throw everything at you, full tackle, e-war, neut, logi, dps.

There are some expensive killmails on zkillboard. Twisted

I tried it on sisi.
Sometimes you get 3 battleships that will just hit you for 1400 damage each time with 80% resists on your marauder.
You can't tank this, you can't even hit battleship because everything is weapon disrupting you even if you're in bastion, which means those npc's are cheating hard core.

Also, i killed like 60 haulers and miners on sisi, got nothing but mined ore from them and metal scraps.
So doing this PVE "event" is totally worthless.
You also loose faction standings for each kill.
