Im looking for some pro-active defenses for my hauler when I go into low-sec and thought maybe an ECM burst or smart-bomb for those pesky drone attacks.
So I fitted a couple and went out to an asteroid field in hi-sec to try them out. There was no one around but what I saw is that I get flagged with a weapon timer regardless, just by using them. No docking or jumping for a minute.
So what happens when I do this in low sec?
If I happen to do so in a tight situation and manage to slip away, would I not be able to jump into hi-sec because of this timer?
Leaves me a sitting duck really.
