Re: Fortress of Tawntoom

*36 Missile Boats
36 B-wings come screaming down through the atmosphere behind Alphei's Fleet and the Squad leader opens up a channel.*


:: This is Ensign Regenal of Vorian Atredies Mercenary fleet. If Ya'll can get them shields down our B-Wings and Missile boats will finish the job with Proton Bombs from the B-wings and Proton Torpedoes from the Missile boats. ::

*The mercenary fleet made the mistake that Dyvius' didn't, they were in range of the defenses. The interplanetary ion cannon fires 4 blasts at the engines of the Nebula-class Star Destroyer. Each V-180 anti-orbital cannon fires 4 shots at a Corona-class frigate. The shields drops only for a moment to allow the shots but each emplacement takes damage from Dyvius' fleet's barage.*

*Alphei realized just slightly too late that the mercenary assitant force would be coming down from behind via the massive battle taking place. That would mean they would be right through the ion cannon emplacements beams. Alphei responded.*

:: Mercenary force, I suggest you get behind us before those ion cannons rip into you any more. Also, when the shields fail, we'll let you pass and give cover fire for you bombing runs. Alphei out. ::

*Alphei saw some of the ships recive hits. Sadly, with gravity acting on these ships down here, the attack boats would be receiving hits.*

OOC: Your turn.*

*The 96 SPHA that had been positioned near the Fortress earlier in the battle were now equipped with their mass drivers and were positioned behind Dyvius' fleet. Targetting the engines of the Saboath were 11 mass drivers, targeting the engines of the Ardents and Battle Dragons are 5 per ship.*

*1 Nebula Class SD-Main Engines disabled
2 Corona class Frigates- 1 Shields down and weapons disabled.
4 Warrior Class Gunships
Fall back behind Alphei's fleet. The Fleet quickly turns their Turbolasers on the unshielded SPHA. The 36 Missile Boats turn and fire upon the guns each carrying 40 Proton torpedoes. They fire all of them on the SPHA*

Re: Fortress of Tawntoom

[Action]The mountains had been chosen as a hiding place for a reason, the mass drivers were non-line of sight weapons which allowed the SPHAs to fire from behind cover. The majority of the enemy's barrage hits the their cover, but still 9 were destroyed. They had, however, managed to get another two volleys off before being hit. Afterwards they redirect their fire on the AT-AAs further off./Action]

OOC: dang forgot how they are indirect weapons lol*
*The Missile Boats dock with the capital ships and reload their payload of Torpedoes. They then lead a more direct assult on the SPHA's The 36 Missile Boats and 36 B-wings fly over the mountains to engage the SPAH's. The Fighters remain low to avoid Mass Driver fire. The Missile Boats fire their 40 Proton torpedo paylaod while the B-wings drop 20 Proton bombs a piece on the SPHA's*

Re: Fortress of Tawntoom

*The deck officer picked up the SHPA's just a little before they raised their large cannons to attack.*



*Alphei saw them shortly after the officer had ordered a change in the shields. The large thick blasts of pure substance came hurtling at them and three managed to impact on the engines of the Sabaoth before the shields took a beating as they came back. Two of the engines for the Sabaoth were out of commission, but the other four were okay. The Battle Dragons that were farther along were able to stop all but two blasts before the shields took over. Same thing for the Ardents. The ships managed to fire a few point defense lasers at the hard matter flying at them, saving them some trouble.
The damage was as follows:
1 Sabaoth Destroyer- Shields at 67%; Weapons at 100% ; Engines: 2 Out of 6 destroyed
3 Ardent Frigates- Shields at 81%; Weapons at 100%; Engines: 1 of 6 crippled on each
3 Battle Dragons- Shields at 1%; Weapons at 90%; Engines: 1 of 4 destroyed on each
7 Battle Dragons- Shields at 79%; Weapons at 100%; Engines: 1 0f 4 crippled on each
4 Battle Dragons- Shields at 50%; Weapons at 95%; Engines: 2 crippled out of 4 on each.*

*Alphei made sure the lasers were still firing at the shield while the K-Wing bombers squadron left the hangar safely and made a low curse skimming only 20 meters from the ground where the Mass Drivers couldn't hit them. They came in range and each launched two proton torpedoes(24 total launched). The turrets were active and firing at every command deck of every SPHA as they passed overhead for the second pass.*

Re: Fortress of Tawntoom

*EDIT: Sabaoth Destroyer: 3 of 6 engines destroyed
3 Ardents: 3 of 6 engines destroyed
3 Battle Dragons: crashed into terrain. Deflector shields protected from extra damage
7 Battle Dragons: 2 of 4 engines crippled
4 Battle Dragons: 3 of 4 engines crippled

Alphei realized how much trouble they were in. He looked upon the hell he'd have to go through to finished the mission. He knew that getting back to the opposite side of the fortress would protect him. He and all the other ships ducked to port hard with all the power they had left and kept from the range of the ion cannons and went around the front of the installation while firing with all they still could muster. Already the front of the fleet was around the edge of the shield to stay away from the MDC's...
The K-Wings make a second pass on the SPHA's.*

Re: Fortress of Tawntoom

*Another 12 SPHAs are destroyed as they continue to fire on the mercenary AT-AAs. The fortress' shield drops to 64%.*

Re: Fortress of Tawntoom

*Half of the Fleet has made it over the horizon of the shield, the SPHA's haven't fired any more on them. Alphei breathes a sigh of relief as the worst seems to be behind them. Once the battle was won, they'd have to go back and fix those downed Battle Dragons. There was plenty of spare parts to be had from the enemy when they were driven from the battle. He keeps the Fleet firirng heavily on the shield.

The three Battle Dragons on the ground were putting shields to max and shutting down the engines conduits to keep things from getting any worse. They continued firing at the shields with the still operational upper disk. The lower disk was totally stationary, so it was totally useless other than keeping the ships standing upright.

The K-Wings leave the battle with the SPHA's to the mercenary attack force and return to the Battle Dragons and other starships. They dock and begin to restock for a later date.*

Re: Fortress of Tawntoom

*The Corona Frigate with no shields is evacuated and put on remote control. The engines are set to overpower which will create an explosion the equivalent to a 10 megaton Nuke and a blast radius of 7 miles. The Corona frigate flies over the greatest concentration of SPHAs and dives. As the Frigate crashes down to earth the engine completes its wildcat destabilization and detonates. The Merc Fighters withdraw to avoid the explosion. The report to the Nebula SD to restock Weapons and prepare to mop up any survivors.*

[ooc:35ke5cyz]OK, first of all. I really doubt that simply over loading the reactor to a simple Corona-class frigate could cause a nuclear explosion of any kind, let alone a 10 megaton blast.

Second, even if it could make a 10 megaton nuclear blast, the blast radius would be signifigantly less than 7 miles. A 50 megaton nuclear bomb going off in real life only causes a 5 mile blast radius. So a 10 megaton blast would cause a MUCH smaller explosion.[/ooc:35ke5cyz]

*The Moonbeam Fleet successfully gets behind the other side of the shields while sitll pouring fire on them. Alphei was determined to make short work of this battle, whether the defenders liked it or not.*

Re: Fortress of Tawntoom

*The Ion cannons drain power from the rest of the fortress, charged at 400% they each fire 4 shots into orbit at Cougar's Pellaeon SDs. That is 4 shots from the Interplanetary ion cannon and 8 from the V-180 anti-orbital ion cannons hitting each Pellaeon Star Destroyer. The drop in the shield results in the desruction of a V-180.*

OOC: If the shields are down:*

*Alphei laughs and guides his forces into the barrier once created by the shields.*



*The remaining 14 warships pound into the ion cannons with all the ion cannon fire that they had.*

OOC: If the shields are still up:*

*Alphei notices that one volley of fire had sliupped through when the ion cannons fired in the last blast. He curses slightly that he had accidentally destroyed one of the three cannons he was trying to gain as prizes. The others would not fall top his firepower. The bombardment on the weaker shields continues with renewed vigor.*

Re: Fortress of Tawntoom

*All cannons continue the attack as ordered. Soon, they would destroy the shields and be done with things for good. The loss of one cannon was bad enough. To lose that massively large cannon would be a crime. Alphei asked:*









*Things were shaping up quite nicely now...*
