You mean… other than virtually all of their remaining cargo space? Remember that hull tanking consumes cargo space as well.
And since it can’t be used in combat (unless they’re too stupid to shoot it), I fail to see why it needs a tactical downside such as the fitting of a local rep.
Yes, I do intend this for frigates. Medium reps from these would still be slow as balls on anything bigger than a destroyer. Amusingly, I was playing around with a hull tanked garmur fit… still nice and fast, way tankier than your typical shield fit, with the obvious drawback that it can’t really rep.
See… I disagree that you should balance a tactical element such as your buffer, against the duration of your roam.
Tactical choices should have tactical impacts. It’s like saying “you aren’t allowed to carry racial ECM modules in your hold, because you made the tactical choice to fit gravis”. No… if you made the strategic choice to bring other modules, and to swap those modules out at a safe time, the tactical benefits are yours.
In this case, you clearly couldn’t use this in combat; it’s a strategic aspect. Repairing out of combat should have no bearing whatsoever on the next engagement. The only time I wuold say that doesn’t apply is when you’re getting chased… in which case a 60 second anchor time makes the deployable useless to you (potentially even more dangerous).
This is of course an opinion.
