I recently made a Gila fit for T5 electrical/Exotic see bellow…
Gila and T5 running fits can be quite expensive. Making it a attractive target for suicide gankers to hunt.
So what can you do to protect your expensive ship/modules from gankers? It’s quite simple really
The most effective method I found as follows:
1st you need to find a high-sec system at least 3 jump from Jita (preferably more then 3 jump and it helps a lot if the system is 1.0 or 0.9 status as it take less time concord to arrive)
2nd you need a safe spot somewhere in space. (preferably outside of d-scan range ( 14.3 AU) from stations/gates)
3rd you need an alt who can fly an Orca or Bowhead. (The alt that is flying the orca I use it for SP farm.)
-You simply park the Orca/Bowhead next to the Abyssal Trace and D-scan the area when ever you got time. Meanwhile your T5 runner finish the Abyssal.
-In the event of a gank you just simply remain relaxed as you have 1 minute invulnerability as you exit the Abyssal.
-Simply approach with your Orca/Bowhead the Gila (2,500m) and switch over to the Gila and right click on the Orca and select Open Fleet Hangar.
-Transfer everything from your cargo to Orca’s Fleet Hangar (make sure it’s enabled for fleet/corp members see bellow how to and yes you have to be in fleet or in the same corp for it to work)
-Then last thing to do is right click on Orca once more and select Store Vessel then warp off with your pod.
- If you worried that they may bump your orca away from the gila just simply approach the Gila/safespot from more then minimal jumping range (150km) and warp to 0 when ready or use more then 1 ocra for this purpose with SP farming so it doesn’t cost you anything monthly to operate all the Orca pilots…
This is the fit/setup I use with my alt.
Make sure you enable fleet/corp members to use Fleet Hangar/Ship Maintenance Bay by sliding the separator to the right and selecting small icons!!!
Illustration while you in space and right click on the Orca. Open Fleet Hangar then transfer everything because you cant store your ship unless cargo is empty (ammo,drugs allowed to stay) Then Store Vessel when ready and warp off with pod
This is the Badger I use for transporting stuff with cloak and MWD. I use faction cloak because it does not require as much skill point to use. I also use Dock/UnDock bookmarks at stations to prevent anyone scanning my ship. An upgrade would be to use Crane for faster transport.
Be sure your align time is 10s or less
After your jumped a gate simply align your ship and then in quickly use Cloak+MWD… wait for MWD cycle to end then un-cloak and hit warp right after. This way the gate gankers has no chance to lock your ship
