Greetings citizens of the Empire , I am Admiral Golan Trevize of PIE , last night saw the first major engagement between the forces of good and the despicable subhuman terrorists, after CONCORDE´S sanction of corperation alliances.
THE ADMIRAL SMILES A COLD SMILE AND ADJUSTS THE CROSS HANGING AROUND HIS NECK , A GROUP OF AMARR FLEET OFFICERS LED BY PIE VICE-ADMIRAL KA´LORN FONTA IS PASSING BY , CLEARLY ON A INSPECTION OF A PARAMILLITARY WARSHIP THE ADMIRAL NODS TO THE VICE ADMIRAL AND CONTINUES
At approximately ---- hours I received a report of terrorists being active in the Amarr homeworld system whilst I was leading a search and destroy mission in the Misaba region my force consisted of 1 Apocalypse class and 3 Armageddon class battleships.
Upon deciphering the message i ordered the fleet to set a interception course.
A few hours later I approached the throne worlds and my fleet stumbled across a lone terrorists scout piloting a fast Rupture who was quickly dispatched with a volley of megapulse fire.
***ADMIRAL TREVIZE WALKS TOWARDS THE TACTICAL OVERLAY UNIT SHOWING THE THRONE WORLDS AND POINTS TO A SMALL RED DOT ***
Upon entering Amarr I ordered the fleet to gather around the TES Majestic in a defensive formation as Lieutenant Katarn who had joined our force, performed a recon duty , the scanners showed nothing bar a single Rifter class hull that’s was not deemed worthy of our attention.
THE ADMIRAL PRESSES A FEW BUTTONS AND THE OVERLAY SHIFTS TO ASHAB SYSTEM
5 minutes later I received a distress call from a CVA ally , multiple hostiles in Ashab system, battleships, numerous cruisers and battlecruisers 10 in all.
I ordered my fleet to warp to Ashab gate and hold until we where in position , then I gave the order to jump in…….nothing was at the gate, we warped to first Kehour gate then Hedion still nothing , then Vice-Admiral Bromhide opened comms with me and told that he had just passed the entire terrorist force setup in a defensive position around the Amarr gate , they where clearly trying to cut us of from reinforcements and preventing our escape.
10 RED SYMBOLS APPEAR AROUND THE AMARR GATE AND 5 BLUE AT THE KEHOUR GATE
I gave the order to shift for long range fire , radio crystals where loaded, target packages where assigned, we would concentrate on their cruiser escorts first to even out the odds.
All where aligned to the gate and on my mark we warped , death or glory!! .
As my fleet came out of warp, numerous hostiles where there , I ordered my crew to their battlestations and gunnery crews started locking, targets where called and soon the first volleys of megapulse fire streaked towards the subhumans, 2 battlecruisers where downed along with a frigate to one lost PIE Punisher.
TACTICAL OVERLAY CHANGES
The terrorist forces then warped out to regroup and reequip , Lieutenant Katarn speeded to Amarr to get his spare punisher while Captain Excs of Imperial dreams joined us in a Interceptor.
Intel reached me and the enemy was at the Kehour gate , the golden fleet alligned again , this time setup for short range fire, this time the enemy was positioned with fast ships close to the gate and battleships far away, Another 2 cruisers including a Deimos class fell to our fire , unfortunately Vice-Admiral Caya lost his Armageddon to concentrated fire due to the enemies cowardly dampeners we could not drive them from the field, I choose to disengage in good order.
OVERLAY CHANGES TO A PLANET ORBITED BY 4 BLUE DOTS ONE RED WARPS IN
Regrouping at planet 2 , while repairing damage suddently a ship came out of warp a battleship class hull belonging to the terrorist forces……it was quickly scrambled and died to concentrated Megapulse fire in less than 30 seconds, Caya was avenged!!.
SHIFTS TO TANOO GATE
A scout reported that the remaining enemy forces where at the Tanoo gate so yet again we warped in , a battlecruiser and a Typhoon class where waiting for us , again lasers flashed and the duo died to the cleansing Amarr lasers, another victory had been won for the glory of Amarr and the Emperor.
SMILES A SATISFIED SMILE AND CONTINUES
To all the pilots of the CVA , you did me proud today defiantly charging an enemy that outnumbers you , you are true heroes of Amarr AMARR VICTOR
Awesome report Golan, must have been one hell of a battle
My 2 tumbs up for the participants!
Did we have 10 at that gate? I thought it was around 7? And we had only 1 bs i think
Damn shiny arse battleships.
Aye, and the losses after we downed that BS could have been avoided if people has listened to the orders that were given. But it was a fun fight nethertheless.
Passive Targetters are a quirky idea too.
Great report Admiral Trevize. I am proud to call myself an Amarrian after seeing this report, yet another of many, describing the brave pilots of the CVA.
QUOTE"Aye, and the losses after we downed that BS could have been avoided if people has listened to the orders that were given. But it was a fun fight nethertheless. "
A few weeks ago we had a slight communications mishap that resulted in some lost ships. Agreed Khaldorn communications are critically important in any fleet action. I'd suspect its even our ability to communicate and coordinate moreso then the "power" of the Amarrian ships that is our biggest weapon on the CVA side.
PIE continues to triumph, even in combat situations that are not thier reputed forte'.
Well done, Praetorians.
I hope Fatal Attraction & Windle Poons are settling into their new ships nicely! :twisted:
