Geminate is falling

6 07 2008

For some time KIA has been patrolling the spacelanes in and around K25. Roadkill have been determined to make a stand in that system. Its a broken alliance but some few pilots keep the fight going. Either blind to the fact that they have lost or simply as a gesture of defiance. I like defiance.

I have before mentioned the pilot Gemstone505 from the Foundation corporation. He has led some surprising raids on our battleship fleet with his Stealth Bombers. Its a source of inspiration to behold the capsulering by this pilot.

K25 has been under siege for most of the week and this weekend the final pieces of resistance has faltered to being sporadic and uncoordinated. Unferth Devestator has been on the field several times with his Titan but it’s actual use has been minimal. A frantic hunt went on for the titan and at one point our Dictors warped in 1-2 seconds to late to catch it.

For the most part the battle of K25 has been purely won by the Battleships of Goons, DAI and KIA. The fighting has been heavy with some very well set up POS towers consisting of Energy neutralizing batteries, lazer, auto cannon batteries and warp disruptors.

The following events is taking place over multiple days but has been shortened down.

I was running a bit late the first day making my way slowly from Q-T with a single Crow for scouting.

While I was making best speed from Q-T the main fleet assembled in TDE with a large contingent of DAI moving up the pipe which it was my plan to hook up with around VSJ.

Without any incident I hooked up with DAI and moved with them to LU- where we assembled on the gate ready to jump in when the KIA fleet did.

KIA relies heavily on their remote repping battleships but the Roadkill towers could drain such a fleet in a very short time. So we had brought additional support in in shape of some logistic ships. The logistics were lost in due course of the battle but K25 was secured and all towers reinforced by the awaiting capital fleet. Myself played only a minor role in helping to slug some large antimatter charges into the POSs.

Friday the O2O system was of primary attention to KIA. Once again we had logistic ships and all ships were loaded up for a fierce fight like the ones we had faced in K25.

Also present for some odd reason was a Typhoon. I have not seen such a ship at the front line for quite some time. Actually I have not seen them really in action ever since it was proved that loading them with overdrives, nano fibers and inertia stabilizers was a hazardous plan. But here it was back again to wreck havoc.

The POS in question held some large bubbles and should have been a deathtrap but the setup of the POS could not have been more horrible. The fire from it was sporadic, mostly unguided and hopelessly out of the damage dealing league.

We set to work straight away with a battleship gang. It might not be a pretty blob of ships but it is damn effective.

We wrapped up by shooting a few guns for the hell of it while the dreads was called in for the heavy duty work.

I do hope next week will bring more excitement.
