It all started after I read one post by Poetic Stanziel about her Tristan adventures. I remembered one experimental fitting that I had applied to my Tristan, but never had the chance to test. It was a Tristan with oversized launchers – loaded with Light Missiles. I managed to fit two railguns and two standard missile bays. I used some help – I fitted a CPU Enhancer and some minor power grid upgrade.
After a short discussion with Poetic, she advised me to try this fitting with EFT. So I did. I fiddled around with some options and finally came up with some optimal conclusion.
See the fitting below. Assuming that all the skills required for the modules are at level IV and the character has NO implants.

Having in mind that most ships can tank two launchers on their own, or two guns on their own, but can't effectively tank two launchers plus two guns in at once (as we discussed), I have tried to balance the optimal range with T2 Ammo so that they correspond adequately to the oversized launchers.
This is a long ranged combat Tristan fit. I it supposed to have the ability to keep enemies away and destroy them despite their efforts to get in range.
You can see the result.
Since I am still just a newb in EVE, I really wish to hear what experienced capsuleers think about this fit.
