Design Lab Disappeared

So I decided to take a shot at doing solo industry in a high sec POS. I put up a tower and a bunch of mods. I forgot to set the forcefield password so there was no forcefield. Then I get a mail that a lab was being shot at and is at 90% shield, so I finally set a password on the POS and see the forcefield go up.

Fast foward a few weeks, I am scoping my POS and realize my design lab is not there. I was not dec'd. So, can someone shoot my POS mods in high sec without Concord intervention? Wouldn't I get several mails about it being shot at and/or destroyed? Should I petition?

Not sure about the notification but if you are just after POS mods hyperdunking is a valid alternative to wardeccing since this won't allow the POS owner to prepare for an attack. Financially it is a bit more expansive than wardeccing but if you are willing to gamble, why not? Once you take a mod to armor you can unanchor it (

If the force field is not active, everything is vulnerable.

I had an idle tower with a lab, and someone fired upon the lab. CONCORD responded, which was fortunate as the lab was in structure. Another attempt or second ship would have destroyed it.

Notices are limited to something like once per hour.

Check the corporate losses tab.

you had the shields off.....that means the whole tower is off and you cant do anything with it anyways so why have all of the modules set up?

Labs have very low HP, only needs a couple of Catalysts/Thrashers to pop them.

4 catalysts do it in a 0.5 system for example. Might work with three on a good day but 4 should be reasonable minimum.

always set pos forcefield to prevent pos ganking.
