How to tank this new Retriever

For the purpose of surviving gank attempts in high sec belts while not paying too much attention.

I've got a basic armour tank on the go, with 200mm Reinforced Rolled Tungsten Pates, 'Refuge' Adaptive Nano Plating, and Nan-fiber Internal Structure so it doesn't fly like a harpooned whale.

I know I've got the right idea, but maybe I should just take the stack penalty and put more resists on it, maybe rigs? I think as it stands it will take high alpha out of the usual suspect destroyers (catalyst/thrasher) even in 0.5 but I'm pretty sure two of them would end me no matter how i fit it and that tends to push me in the direction of keeping the fit cheap and playing the odds instead.

This is a low skill, reasonably cheap fit that has 18.6k EHP. You can go higher with T2.

18.3k EHP while still having 2 MLU. Currently using a downgraded version of this due to tight fitting skills. But thats what I am planning for using in Highsec.

I was using this last night. My skills are crap though so I'm only getting about 16K...

[Retriever, Armor]

Damage Control II
Micro Auxiliary Power Core I
400mm Reinforced Rolled Tungsten Plates I

Limited Adaptive Invulnerability Field I

Ice Harvester I
Ice Harvester I

Medium Trimark Armor Pump I
Medium Trimark Armor Pump I
Medium Shiny New Ice Rig I

Edit: One plus of this fit is that if the gankers are lazy they'll see the hardener and hopefully assume you're shield tanking...

Hows my posting? Call 1-800-747-7633 to leave feedback.

Good idea with the hardener. Modified my setup to get some more EHP out of it using Invulfield:

[Retriever, Tanky]

Damage Control II
Mining Laser Upgrade II
Mining Laser Upgrade II

Adaptive Invulnerability Field II

Modulated Strip Miner II
Modulated Strip Miner II

Medium Anti-EM Screen Reinforcer I
Medium Core Defense Field Extender I
Medium Core Defense Field Extender I

19.4k EHP with ALL 5. Requires a 2% CPU Imp or downgrading the DCII to Meta 4 (=> 18.9k EHP).

Cheers, Chris
