On 2015-05-18 a Drifter battleship destroyed a small Minmatar tower belonging to the BigPoppaMonkeys corporation in E.B.O.L.A alliance in 7Q-8Z2.

7Q-8Z2 is the home system of E.B.O.L.A. alliance and where player TITAN GER was aggressing Drifters with frigates. TITAN GER would warp to his POS and kill Drifters with POS guns. There are additional frigate kill reports on TITAN GER’s killboard. These are probably other attempts to lure Drifter battleships to a kill-POS.

According to sources, TITAN GER, on the fourth run, logged off inside the POS when the Drifters started to attack the POS. The Drifters successfully reinforced and subsequently destroyed the tower. After the reinforcement timer the Drifters returned and continued to shoot the tower. It appears that TITAN GER logged off to avoid an aggression timer, but the Drifters came back, found a target, then engaged and destroyed the POS. It was TITAN GER’s personal POS so there was no call to arms to save it.

There is information on Reddit about Drifters following aggressors to stations, reattacking when entering grid again, etc. We can now add attacking Player Owned Structures to the list. Players controlling POS guns may cause the Drifters to target the POS itself. As this is the first Drifter POS killmail, it would require more killmails to discover if this was a glitch and a one time incident or if POS owners need additional caution. We know that POS guns do not automatically target NPCs, so there is little chance for more killmails, provided players avoid using POS guns as oversized DPS.

A great thanks to Dean Auduin of ZHOON PROVOCATEUR, E.B.O.L.A. alliance for providing information about the killmail.
