I suggest a healthy mix of both. The frigates will be tank-like and carry lots of resources while the fighters (which you should have more of) will be the casualties of the battles. For example, I keep an "EMP Battlelog" on my Armor Games profile, which you can view here: http://armorgames.com/user/Arctic55
If you look, my most recent post will say this: 082914 - I attacked a level 5 anomaly. Battle consisted of my 900 fighters and 50 frigates vs. 108 Ancients. 58 fighters were lost in battle. All 108 Ancients were destroyed. 5 frigates were found. I attacked a level 4 anomaly. Battle consisted of my 900 fighters and 55 frigates vs. 53 Ancients. 5 fighters were lost in battle. All 53 Ancients were destroyed. 14 fighters were found.
Notice, two battles, but all loses were on the fighters. Since I collected all the resources (thanks to the frigates) I easily replaced them and continued conquering anomalies. FWI, I don't suggest doing anomaly level 6 with what I posted above, unless you have more ships or better ships due to the massive ancient ship count.

I'm pressed but not crushed.
Persecuted but not abandoned.
Struck down but not destroyed.
