It wasn't my intention, it was just the way things turned out.
I've been running courier jobs, mostly to earn ISK without getting my shabooies blown off. In and among they ask me to do combat ops, and once in a while I take one. Which resulted in me having 3 holds-full of loot and salvage. Which I was taking home as and when I passed through the system.
Then I got a 1 m3 courier job, and decided it was daft running a BS or a Mammoth for that. So I podded five jumps and bought a Rifter, took her to my main base, and fitted her out -- and named her Tsangerei after a planet in a song.
And ran the courier job and on the way back decided to look at a drone spawn point. And had fun !!!
I'd forgotten what a joy it is to rat in a Rifter. Turns on a sixpence, bites bum with the best, and (with AFB) runs away as soon as the damage rises. Yes, I know: majorly vulnerable to web/scram, but it's a Rifter, it's worth maybe 3M tops. I might even buy rigs for it. And faction ammo (though it eats ammo like a wolfhound).
So, could we have a little Yay!! for the Rifter and the joy of killing drones
