riverini’s note: In case you are wonder what the hell a RoshCatz is, it is an internal joke name N3 had for Gila Fleets – a name which will probably cause Canaris Roshaak a stroke – also, thanks to the N3 pilots who mentioned how adding a “z” at the end of any cat fleet made it “more edgy”.
Canaris Roshaak from Nulli Secunda wrote this BR of a fight with Solar Fleet, I am not sure if he submitted or it was leaked to riverini, still here is it.
Planning to crash a “big ass” fight between Unclaimed and DD/Stainrus the brave capsules of The Kadeshi and the Unthinkable formed up in a 160 man Gila fleet. However, Vince Draken barged on comms and started screaming of a Solar Alpha fleet numbering 150, and using maelstroms and Rokh.
The plan was changed and ourfleet burned towards M53-1V in Cash. Midway scouts informed us that NCdot dropped their supers on Solar fleet, and they have disengaged, heading towards us.
So, our fleet regrouped on the M53 gate, and as we landed the first Solar ships started jumping in. Sentry drones were deployed and the fleet was anchored up. The first few Battlecruisers that broke cloak were locked and alpha shot back into their pods. Then the maelstroms turn came and we started rapidly burning through them, they were dropping in 1-2 volleys each.
In a few minutes more than 30 BS were killed, however, as the minutes passed by they were able to burn away from the Sentries range and their losses started to slow. Meanwhile, the NCdot guys were screaming at us to light a cyno in order
to jump in with their caps and whore the KMs, we obliged and NCdot super fleet jumped in, cleaning up the field.
All in all we lost a few Gilas and some newbros support ships, for 35+ BS killed and 10 recon/T3. It is fair to say that it was a good change of plans!
