Anyway, a quick BR. As always there were goon fleets about, maka wanted to have some fun, so we formed up a 100 man tornado fleet (comp ~70 T3 bcs, 20 support, 10 logis) and set dest to goon staging system. On the way there, we found one of the mixed CFC fleets that had just finished RF'ing a RDN pos and we went for it. Local topped at 400 when we jumped in, fleet maxed at 110. -A- KB shows 86 friendly vs 296 hostile.
We warp to a planet, and then at range to a moon where the CFC fleet was. Being in alpha tornados, our optimal ranges were between 30-100km, yet obviously didnt want to be particularly close to a drake zerg. The CFC guys seemed to have 2 seperate drake fleets, along with a Test bomber squad. For the next hour, there was a constant to and fro and in-grid warps from both as everyone tried to outposition the other fleet. Our primaries generally dropped in one to two volleys, but obviously it was hard to tank the volley from 100drakes at a time also. We did a good job of keeping hostile long range tackle off the field (lach's were immediately primaried), and dictors generally got instapopped when they landed.
CFC were a bit more reserved in their positioning, generally choosing to engage only when both fleets were close to us, whereas we were generally trying to isolate one gang at a time...so there was a lot of cat and mouse. For the first half an hour of the fight, we were raking in more kills than losses, but then the test bomber squad turned up The first two (possibly 3) runs of theirs were fairly poor, and either caught nobody or a couple, but at one point they had a fantastic run and killed a decent number of ships (not sure on exact numbers), including our main FC and damaged the rest of us massively causing us to bail (I was down to 1/3 armour due to mwd turning off promptly). We probably lost a few more in the few systems neighbouring EOY as we bailed benny hill style.
Either way, it was an extremely fun fight, k/d was basically even (largely due to the bombing runs),
-A- kb link:
~30 non -A- in our fleet, so losses are a bit higher (my corp lost another 4 bc's on top at least)
First BR in ~2years
