The Battle of Thishen
« on: April 28, 2006, 01:11:54 pm »
Wexxian sensors pick up a hyperspace signature. Suddenly a combined Icthian/Urshan fleet drops out of the ether at the edge of the system.

(OOC: I'll add more details about my ships in a bit - if you post exactly which ships you have in your first post, that would be helpful.)

The Icthian portion of the fleet is composed of about three full carrier battle groups. (These are about 30 Carriers equivalent, per the Peacetime thread - please make sure that you send about 3 times the amount of ships from this post, or less)

Group 1:
Flagship: CVF Daring

4 CVF-Class Main Battle Carriers
7 CVL-Class Light Carriers
12 DE-Class Escort Ships
3 AE-Class EW Escort Ships

Group 2:
Flagship: CVF Audacity

4 CVF-Class Main Battle Carriers
8 CVL-Class Light Carriers
10 DE-Class Escort Ships
3 AE-Class EW Escort Ships

Group 3:
Flagship: CVF Suicidal Insanity

4 CVF-Class Main Battle Carriers
7 CVL-Class Light Carriers
10 DE-Class Escort Ships
3 AE-Class EW Escort Ships

There are also various non-combat support ships, including about 10 transports loaded with marines, waiting at the back of the system. Group Suicidal Insanity waits with these ships, whilst Group Daring and Group Audacity head towards the Wexxian planet.

\\Message from Wexxian; Thishen star system, to ALL who can help:

This is the Wexxian leader Alpha-Zeti-214 calling.

Our home system in the Thishen sector has come under attack by a number of Halycon controlled ships. Even now, more ships are jumping into the system.

We require immediate assistance, from any CAB or LAH ships out there to help us; we are not warriors and are losing badly.

Estimated time until destruction of home base: 4 hours if no help will come.

Caarnth chief research faculty has dispatched 30 drone cruisers, however due to the high alert status of our own system these ships have been sent from our core systems, they will take more than 4 hours to reach your system, while they might not arrive on time, they will be able to reinforce the ships sent by your allies

\\Message from Wexxian leader Alpha-Zeti-214, to Caarnth ships in rute to Thishen:

We have managed to fly our station into the second asteroid field in the system and create a rudimentary forcefield protection.

this will stave the advancing ships a bit and may buy us some more time.

we have supstained heavy casualties, more than 6900 Wexxians are dead.

Our situation is desperate; we need all the help we can get.

\\Begin Transmission

This is Capitan Tura Chinto reporting

The Urshan fleet is ready, all forces divided to three main group,the space attackers, the invaders, and the commandor's group.
 
Space attackers:
20 Frigates, 10 destroyers, 5 cruisers

The Invaders
20 Frigates, 2 Destroyers 5 cruisers 2 battleships, 10 titan transports

Commandor's Group
10 Frigates, 8 Destroyerrs, 3 Battleship, Mother ship (a slightly bigger battleship)

*Cough

Icthian Vis and Sombrerons ships, we must all strike at once.
In the name of the Halcyon, attack!

\\End Transmission

First comes the space attackers aiming on the defenses. Then comes the Commandor's Group blasting the vital space ships and at last the Indavers are waiting, planning to send the ground troops down to the planet.

<Due to our very light involvement elsewhere, we can send in 3 Asault Cruisers imediately (filled to capacity, no less) along with a 8 Frigate Enforcers, 3 Medical Frigates, and 1 Frigate Intercetpor. If this proves to not be enough, we are prepared to send a full Command Cylinder, should you require it.

I pray to Soil you will be saved.>

Groups Daring and Audacity headed into the second asteroid field to scout the area for remaining Wexxian forces, whilst preparing for the Caarnth fleet to engage them should the Urshans not manage to occupy them for long enough. Some of the carriers started to launch fighters to help in the scouting effort.

A message was broadcast to the system as a whole from the Audacity.

\\Wexxian Forces, you are outnumbered. Reveal yourselves and surrender.\\

As they did this, Group Suicidal Insanity together with the support group started heading insystem as it became apparent that there was only light resistance. Meanwhile, work progressed on trying to decrypt a message aimed at the system, presumably to the Wexxians themselves. Hopefully the ViS ships would arrive soon, as it would take some of the pressure from Icthian forces.

//message from drone fleet//
*have eliminated all enemy cruisers at the cost of 2 of our own*
*switching to secondry targets*

OOC: If any one doesn't think that sounds right plz say so, I'm just going off the fact that its 30 cruisers V 5 cruisers, with smaller supporting ships

The Oifan-Umtag Navy shows up, and immediately the Frigate Interceptor gets put into action. It sets up to monitor all transmissons in the system, and jams all non-CAB transmission to outside the system. The rest of the ships set up a defensive force to protect the system.

\\Fire! ... Deafeat is not an option!!! ...

It seems we lost most of the cruisers therefore the main source for anti-mater torpedoes is lost, we must relay mainly on our beams.

I have now received an order from the emperor ... take no prisoners! commandor's group main target: Caarnth ships  *Cough, have no mercy!

We must use this opportunity when many of the foolish LAH races haven't arrived yet, we must make it quick! Estimated time for conquest in certain conditions: 5 Hours.

The Titans are getting closer to the surface as I speak, *Cough, waiting for Icthian approval to invade, this act must be done simultaneously.\\

The Icthian ships, noting that the Urshans were failing to sufficiently distract the drone ships, started scrambling fighters. Remaining inside the asteroid field they switched on their EW systems and shut down power to hyperdrive systems, attempting to mask their true numbers and locations amongst the surrounding rock. An encrypted message was sent from somewhere in the EM haze to the Urshan commander:

\\Your performance is unacceptable. You must mass your forces when fighting drone ships, otherwise they'll start picking off yours one by one. Make certain your attempt to slow them down. We will notify you when we have found the location of the Wexxians.\\

The Icthian commander of the Audacity swam worriedly around the bridge. Fighting massed drone ships was always tricky, he had to find some way to split them up or force them to disengage to repair to give him some time to find the Wexxians.

OOC: Just a quick note to say that you should never evaluate your enemy's losses in an RP, you should always let them do that themselves. It's really poor form to say "I destroy half your fleet." Likewise, it's bad form to say that you take very few losses yourself unless you can justify that.
