riverini here! I have revised Sergo’s heavily Russian battle report and fixed a couple of things. I also added a video of the engagement. Enjoy!
After blueballing for a month, SOLAR FLEET finally committed to fight N3 (NCDOT, Nulli Secunda and Red Alliance) + Pandemic Legion during EU prime time.
U93O-A in the Cache Region had an IHub coming out of reinforced. SOLAR FLEET had an impressive fleet ready to brawl – slowcats, blap dreads, Tech 3 AHACs, stealth bombers and BC/Cruiser fleet from their allies, FA/RAZOR. They anchored a cyno jammer and anchored large bubbles on every gate then sat and waited.
This was a fight that nobody in his right mind would want to miss so N3 decided to go balls deep and fight on enemy terms. N3 brought in several fleets featuring blaster Rokhs, Abaddons and Pandemic Legion’s own Potatocats (Sentry Navy Dominix) and jumped into system. Local was at 1000 and TiDi hit 11%.
SOLAR FLEET’s Tech 3 fleet was hugging the gate while their slowcats and dreads kept some distance. And so the fight begun. Their T3 and slowcat fleets started focusing on N3′s logistics ships. As soon as the fight begun, FAZOR showed up with a Tech 1 cruiser fleet and tryed to whore on the kills in this battle. They ended up upgrading clones in E02-IK a minute or 2 after that.
Pandemic Legion’s Potatocats dropped sentry sentry drones and approached the SOLAR FLEET Lokis to get into their blaster/neuting range causing themselves to be called primaries. SOLAR’s dread and Loki fleets focused on the Navy Dominixes. The PL FC took countermeasures and immediately called to increase range from the Loki fleet and burn back to gate.
Meanwhile, the N3 Rokhcat fleet was slowly getting out of bubbles. Their logistics pilots were trying to do their best to keep fleet members alive. By this time the FAZOR T1 cruiser fleet was no more. SOLAR’s BC/cruiser fleet was eliminated and reshipped.
SOLAR FLEET’s renowned bomber wing continued nonstop bombing runs with Void bombs causing the Rokh fleet to sit without any capacitor most of the time. NCDOT’s Abaddon fleet remained, fighting against the odds slightly away from the in gate but due to having no logistics left, they could not tank the DPS coming from SOLAR’s dreads and Lokis. One by one Adaddons die. After losing a big part of their fleet, PL extracted themselves from system. The fight was over for the Abaddons and Navy Domis.
The N3 Rokh fleet was the only one remaining on field. The fight was nearly over. SF bombers made precise bombing runs, killing a lot of Rokhs, Those who survived were killed by SF dreads and Lokis.
