Now that I've finally settled into 0.0, it's time to get serious about the buildup of my fleet. Any pilot in EVE needs to maintain a stable of re-mounts. Different ships have different uses and specializations. On top of that you need to plan for the replacement of combat losses. For my initial fleet I plan on having a back bone of six battle cruisers and six battleships. Battlecruisers are for roams, fast response fleets and when I run out of battleships. Battleships are for main fleets (going for strategic objectives as part of a CTA or Home defense fleet when called for by the FC). Only once this backbone is in place will I work on building/re-building a stable of T2 ships for use on ops.
We'll see how it all goes but so far looks like within a few days I'll only be one BS hull short of my initial objective. At that point it will be "build back up the funds" time.
