We run 2 tanks PT and Assassin, never had anything enrage, cleared all HM, Save Karagga(he dies Monday, ran normal for fresh 50's last night, ran out of time to get him after Fabricator on HM) But ya, never an issue.

The problem is that you need a Tank for the HM FPs to help get everyone geared but that doesn't scale to the Operations.
HM FP 1 Tank, 2 DPS, 1 Healer
OP (NM & HM) 1 Tank, 2 Healers, 5 DPS

If no one is undergeared you will have no problem completing either raid on normal with 2 tank, 2 healers, and 4dps.

Bugs are learning the fights are really the only reason to wipe. Within 1-2 weeks of running it, normal will be farmed easily. It is on heroic/nightmare that composition becomes more of an issue for a couple bosses.

We run 1 tank also.

We do have a DPS guardian who brings along his shield gen for some **** just to make it easier, but really any class who can throw on a tank stance (Vanguard trooper, Jedi Guardian, Jedi Shadow) is more than sufficient for anything that you'd want two tanks for.

EV nothing requires two tanks. KP we have our DPS'r put on tank gen for the bounty hunters and the Droid (He taunts at high stacks so they drop off the MT) and thats about it. He does not need to be tank spec'd or geared, hell hes done it a few times forgetting to swap in his generator, of course us healers notice that kinda thing

2 tanks is better for some fights, so 2 tanks should be standard.
You can do it with one tank now, but it is very possible,
that you need a full geared 2nd tank in the future.
So to be save, i would have 2.

If you want/need to min/max then switch one on the other fights.
