NC kills another PL POS
There was 3.5hrs to go until a planned Northern Coalition operation to kill a Pandemic Legion POS and I logged in before dinner just to check my mail and restock ammo etc in preparation. We had reinforced the Pandemic Legion high-end moon mining tower a couple of days ago and it was due to come out. I was expecting a relaxing evening finished off with a bit of a POS bash. This was certainly not the case.
Scramble the fleet!
My Occator deep space transport ship about to fill up a jump bridge
As soon as I logged on, there were fleet invitations being spammed in alliance and in corp, instructions to X up in the Norther Coalition intel channels and orders to bring as many capital ships as possible. Something big was going down.
I jumped in my Onyx, (as usual) hoping that we’d be finally getting a capital ship fight. but as soon as I had, my corp mate yelled that his dread was stuck at a jump bridge with no fuel – so I finnaly had an opportunity to use my brand new Occator. Quickly bought 11 mil worth of Liquid ozone and went and saved the day! who says Industrial ships can’t contribute to the war effort. of course, I can’t kill anything with it so I got back in my ever so trusty gothic robo-chicken.
The FC explained the reason for the rushing… Pandemic Legion had anchored and onlined a Cynosural Jammer on their tower in the system. We had to get as many capitals in before it onlined. In what most of us consider an amazing effort, the NC formed a fleet with the people that were online and had moved over 160 capital ships into the target system OOTY-J along with a fairly good sized support fleet. Mostly Harmless, Morsus Mihi, Wildly Inapropriate and Tau Ceti Federation had all come along to the fight. This was the biggest capital fleet all in one place that I’ve been able to take a screenshot of.
The capital fleet incapacitated all the modules on the already reinforced Pos and took out the cyno jammer just for something to do. The support fleet mostly stayed on the gates, stopping the occasional PL member trying to get into the system.
After all the modules were destroyed, we settled in to wait the hour remaining until the tower came out of reinforced. We got word that They would be bringing their allies Sons of Tangra and Cry Havoc. We were all anticipating a massive fight.
… but unfortunately, nothing eventuated, we killed the tower and then went and reinforced some more PL towers back in X-7O. Perhaps if we had not been able to rally such a large capital fleet into the target system before the cyno jammer went active we may have had more of a fight.
Come on Pandemic Legion – give us a cap fight!
