Eve News24, Fair and balanced! brings you the other side of the 49-U6U battle. We got TEST Alliance account, here’s Against All Authorities’, we report – you decide.
Mission Objective: Armor RF Station, Delayed Approx 5 hours, Completed.
The -A- Team formed up at 02:00 EVE TIME And were the first on field in . They began with opening volleys
at the station that was just coming out of Reinforced mode.
The -A- Team consisted of a Tengu Fleet from -A- & Friends, and an additional smaller Tengu fleet from Red Alliance Augmented with ROL, Engarde, Cascade Imminent, and other pilots. As well as an -A- Bomber wing led by -MVN- FC James Kordent. And an -A- Team Tornado support fleet lead by -A- FC Lee Chanka.
The final fleet formed was an -A- Team Tackle fleet that operated on its own guerilla style and was led by Roweena Azur from Cascade Imminent. Even a small alliance from Providence (Eternal Evocations) came because of their mutual disdain of the DekCo.
The fight began at the Station in 49-U6U. THe fight began with Pandemic Legion jumping in approx 40 slowcats with the first carrier being the cyno piloted by Black Saint. FOr those that are unfamiliar. Slowcats are carriers setup for spider tanking and using Sentry drones for offense. Unfortunately The sig/speed of the -A- Team Tengus proved to be a bad match for the PL slowcats as they were
unable to mount much of an offense.
Their was about 1.5 hours of fighting around the station the -A- Team logistics did an outstanding job in saving Tengus from death before the fleet could dimish enemy recons. With the occasional switch to Rokhs, Maelstroms, and Drakes.
Around this time the -A- FCs decided to use a titan to bait a knee jerk reaction from Pandemic Legion to jump in Super Carriers to gauge how many they had available (Piloted by an alt of Makalu Zarya). Little known to everyone on the field PL had only jumped in a portion of their Super fleet and had held the rest in reserve in hopes to bait the -A- Super fleet into action. Luckily -A- Spies and Scouts are everywhere.
A few minutes of killing dictors and hictors went by then -A- Team Fleet went back into action on the DekCo Logistics and Rokhs.
While the -A- Team was busy engaging the DekCo subcap fleet the PL Super Fleet warped to the 8QT Gate and destroyed the SBU before the Bomber wing could get into place to destroy the fighter bombers.
During the entire fight the DekCo ships were piling back into the system in groups to augment numbers that were being lost do to precise fire from the -A- Team Fleet. The -A- Team fleet were also taking heavy losses to the logistics wing and were being reinforced as fighting continued.
All said and done, the DekCo fleet managed to keep the -A- Fleet busy long enough to destroy an -A- SBU and the -A- Team Fleets managed to wipe the floor with the DekCo Subcap fleet. -A- Re-Anchored a new SBU and RFed the Station, so yes, the DekCo did “save the system” or rather, delayed the next stage of RF for 3 hours.
Judging by the battle report the -A- Fleet won the subcap battle by far while being out numbered by
Approx 300 pilots.
750 on the -A- team and 1,110 on the DekCo
I have personaly found respect for DekCo Pilots and one thing can surely be said about them, They will gladly die
for their cause, and -A- will gladly make it happen.
