A small FW skirmish recently turned into a capital ship carnage in Egghelende, with Snuff Box [SNUFD] taking heavy losses.
After some time playing docking games, with faction battleships and Carrier support from the Fweddit & friends side, in comes Snuff Box, with several Dreadnoughts and Carriers, to murder a Chimera belonging to The Imperial Fedaykin [TMFED], of the Amarr Militia:
However, the cyno was dropped on top of the station, so the Snuff Box capital ships started to bump and drift away from the station, up to 90 Km as reported by Fweddit. This detail became relevant as, shortly after, a Moros was still at some 60Km from the station, all by itself, allowing Fweddit to tackle it.
Batphone at the ready, it happened that Pandemic Legion had been moving their supercap fleet around the area. The rest is easy to figure out: Snuff Box came back with the Dreadnoughts, they Sieged, and the Pandemic Legion cyno spelled doom for them, with a whooping 36 Supercarriers and 27 Carriers/Dreads:
Snuff Box ended up losing 11 Dreadnoughts according to the battle summary.
One of the original parts involved, Knights of the Posing Meat, lost three T1 cruisers and a Velator, which again show us that even a small pebble in the right place can bring forth an avalanche, if people with resources find themselves nearby the action and bored enough.
The battle marked a bittersweet week for Snuff Box, after managing to utterly destroy a Goon Carrier fleet with negligible loses a few days ago.
