Hakonen has been witness to the largest battles in the current campaign by the Imperium to “punish” their enemies composed primarily of PanFam and Guardians of the Galaxy coalitions. In a third attempt to deploy a fortizar in the system, Imperium forces suffered heavy casualties under the overwhelming fire power of Titan and Super Capital forces brought by the defenders.
Figures are still coming through but it looks to have been at least 70 billion ISK lost by the attackers, including the strategic objective of the Fortizar, to the defenders’ 15 or so billion ISK. Despite Goonswarm leader The Mittani claiming that they now had the most powerful super capital fleet in the game, none have been used so far despite having comparable numbers for the initial two fights. For this third fight it seems Imperium numbers are shrinking. According to The Mittani, this campaign is scheduled to last the entire month. We’re only half way through August currently.

Goonswarm are dubbing this a “learning experience” and remark that their actual goal has been to anchor far away Astrahus citadels in other systems.
Additionally as the battle was finishing up, Pandemic Legion managed to snag a Goonswarm Avatar in Delve making the already desolated region site to yet another massive loss.
