Can a Titan under construction be hidden?

This question confuses me a bit the way it's currently worded. When I think of an "unwanted Titan", I think of the CSMA'd POS not wanting to be CSMA'd (rather than not wanting a baby Titan).

When I think of an unplanned Titan, I see it more as it was unplanned, however it doesn't necessarily mean it's unwanted. Do you understand what I'm getting at?

Nearly 50% of all CSMA builds are reported to be unplanned. Out of those, I believe about 25-28% are unwanted CSMA builds. A corporation can experience an unplanned baby Titan but still very much desire and/or be fit to field it. Titan abortion is a solution for an unwanted Titan, however there are some who cannot or do not wish to abort because of religious convictions, a lack of resources to get an abortion, and even bullying to not get one until it is too late. Bullying can also occur in reverse, where the Alliance and/or corpmates bully the CSMA'd POS to abort.

All of these things and more can be determining factors in a corporation's decision to have or not have a Titan abortion.

What about titans that are forced into production? Do they still have a choice?

I was thinking that a dead give away for a Titan or Super Cap being built is the presence of the CSMA array in the POS

Can the CSMA be removed when the ship is in build then put it back when the ship is ready to be delivered?

I simply don't know enough about build mechanics to know if this would work but I suspect not as the materials could be tied into the array.

I do understand that a level of SOV would be needed to anchor the CSMA.



The whole point is that people know where they are, they exist to make fights happen. Otherwis ethey would just let you build them in stations.

You should totally build a Titan, you should also TOTALLY get your corp to help mine to build it.

Especially if you're renting space in a non-station system that you're not allowed to have a refinery in and have to haul the ore to a refinery station and then drag the materials back again.

What could possibly go wrong?

Find a system with 100 moons. At each moon put a deathstar pos with 1 CSAM or whatever it is, add in plenty if cyno jammers which can be put online after the last dies. Build 1 titan at one random moon.

Hope and pray the enemy fleet gets bored before they pop the pos that is actually making rhe titan.
