Just over 20k EHP (2x gank catalysts), 6.8s align time and 6.3au/s with a few days training. Caldari haulers have the largest base capacity so you get a pretty nice boost per cargo expander. Deliberately bumped it to 5km3 for carrying a couple packaged frigs and their fittings.

If you want a pure speed hauler for small items (less than 400m3) i suggest a T1 exploration frig.

This Badger has 11,448 m3 of cargo space with a maxed Caldari alpha skillset. With hardeners on, you have 26.7k EHP, increasing to 32.3k EHP with heat. This should be sufficiently tough for most gankers to look elsewhere, so long as your cargo isn’t especially valuable.

I recommend carrying three inertial stabilizers in your cargo. Often you are only carrying cargo in one direction, and returning empty, or light on cargo. On the return trip, refit the cargo expanders to inertial stabilizers to save yourself some time. After all, three I-stabs only take up 15 m3 of your cargo, less than one percent of your hold - but it will save you a decent amount of time over a long journey.

While unfortunate many alpha players will haul using autopilot. This fit is designed to give the maximum safety and speed whilst on auto pilot. Resistances are stacked into thermal/kinetic given the prevalence of catalyst attacks.

ALL STATEMENTS ARE OF BASELINE SKILL 0:
this fit allows for the idea of the badger being a FAST and LIGHT travel without sacrificing too much tank or cargo. 15kEHP overall, 40.2 EHP/s shield recharge from caldari racial, with a 9.72s align time (without modules is 13.9s). This allows for 1544 incoming dps (if shield recharge were 0) to go from 0-warp without losing the ship. The mostly passive tank (excluding the one adaptive) allows for enough CAP to warp without draining cap for tank. racial fit weaponry to help in sticky situations. this fit will be useful for most low level logistics agent missions as well as a personal quick travel hauler.
