Coalition Ishtars maul NC Raven fleet with carrier support

Fobiner, 12 February 2015

A coalition Ishtar fleet led by Li Blackhawk attacked an NC POS in Fobiner today. Several NC carriers and support ships were active in the POS. The coalition fleet shot the POS guns for several minutes before an enemy Raven fleet with a large Scimitar contingent landed.

The FC warped the 134-man fleet out and back to reposition, dropped Curators and kited the fleet off. Emboldened by the Raven/Scimitar support, 2 Nidhoggurs left the safety of the POS shields and were destroyed along with several Ravens and Scimitars. The FC warped the fleet out and back again (abandoning drones) to reposition. The fight would have gone on in this way but for 2 enemy Scorpions who smart bombed coalition drones which were grouped up. The FC tried to destroy them but they were kept alive by enemy logistics. Those Ishtars that had drones remaining redeployed them but it was not enough. The coalition fleet was losing Ishtars steadily so the FC chose to extract the fleet to fight another day.
