Cheetah Ready and More T1 Frigates

Starwalker had scouted Oulley for Starstepper as it seemed that the Oulley gate camp was a regular feature for Placid. Starstepper had only ever lost one Mammoth to a gate camp and he had no desire to lose a second to something that could be easily avoided.

The Mammoth made the run during a quiet time and Eugales was restocked with 3 Incursi, 3 Merlins and most of the fittings needed. Starwalker had used his Hawk to pick up some final items from Covryn and along the way had killed this cyno-ship. It was well tanked but the dual Medium Ancillary Shield Boosters were easily able to tank the station guns.

Meanwhile, Starwalker had been distracted from training drone skills for his battlecruisers and had completed Covert Ops V and was now able to fly and fully fit his Cheetah:

[Cheetah, Cheetah]
Micro Auxiliary Power Core II
Co-Processor I
Damage Control II

Limited 1MN MicroWarpdrive I
1MN Afterburner II
J5b Phased Prototype Warp Scrambler I
Codebreaker I

Covert Ops Cloaking Device II
Expanded Probe Launcher I, Core Scanner Probe I
125mm Gatling AutoCannon II, Republic Fleet Phased Plasma S

Small Gravity Capacitor Upgrade I

The original intent had been to use this ship and fit for finding Exploration (Radar) sites, primarily for ISK income, and possibly to probe down mission runners or industrial ships at safes but whilst the training was complete and the ship purchased and fitted the desire to use it had diminished considerably.

Starwalker was more interested in killing other ships and generally he spent so little time in New Eden already that he wanted to spend what time he did looking for fights. However, in over a year he still had not sorted out a steady source of ISK income and his disposable ISK was getting very low.
