The expected casualty count from a highsec Astrahus takedown is entirely limited to the Astrahus crew, when there's no defending fleet to support it.

Miz, I think Nauplius' title of crimson clown is rapidly being usurped.

It's.. it's not. It's really not. :(

They're multiplying. I think it's time to start collapsing jumpgates, people.

With fits like those... ugh.

As others have said: No, a high-sec Astrahus shouldn't be able to do more than put up a pretty light show.

I wonder if Sanguine has taken a page out of Revan's old playbook and started offering mercs ridiculously cushy packages?

I would like to thank SFRIM, PNS, ALXVP, I-RED, and of course my pilots from IKAME who were able to answer the call for an engagement outside of our ideal operating hours. I'd also like to thank Charles Schmidt for flying alongside as an independent. Of course, there's work yet to do.

As for the COW losses, well-- no idea who they are, or what they thought they were doing. I'm not sure they had any idea, either.

Please don't call these people mercenaries. Sometimes it's cute, in that baby seals walking into a club kind of way but this is just depressing.

Can we call them Self-Inflicted Gutshots?

Well Cass's old mistress Revan used to offer her failures full ship reimbursement for losses as well as a weekly lump sum. If she is following in the footsteps of the mistress, then these Self-Inflicted Gut Shots are making out like bandits regardless.

I'm still waiting for my eviction notice from the Empire.

That was Aldrith was saying. Funny how assumptions cloud operational thinking.

Having reviewed the fits ... well ... I kind of have to withdraw everything I said about the firepower being impressive.

I guess they really might have thought the citadel wouldn't be armed.

Nauplius,

If you wish to talk surrender terms please contact me at any time.

At some point, preferably the moment the damn thing yellowboxed anything, that assumption should probably have gone out the airlock. Somehow, it apparently didn't. I hereby present the only conceivable chain of events where this seems possible:

"It's fine boys. It's unarmed."

*explosions*

"Erm, boss?"

"User error, surely. It's unarmed."

*explosions*

"I SAID IT'S UNARMED! STOP EXPLODING!"

*further explosions*

"It's impossible to get good help these days."

What's worse is that they kept warping in, singly and in pairs. How-- just how did that seem like a good idea?

Because generally speaking, human beings are about as intelligent as a trio of week-dead fedo.

That's an insult.

To the trio of week-dead fedo.

A Minmatar warship is like a rusting Beetle with 500 horsepower Cardillac engines in the rear, armour plating bolted to chassis and a M2 Browning stuck on top.

On behalf of I-RED, thank you to everyone involved in this undertaking. I would also like to make mention and give thanks to Elassus Herron of RDC, who also provided aid in this powerful representation of cooperation.

As Priano-haani has stated, there is still work to be done, and we look forward to collaborating again to ensure this threat is handled.
