Earth Alliance vs. Federation
Played last week a 4.500 pts-battle against an EA-Player.
-1 Omega A w/ 2 Fligts Fury's and one fully loaded Flight T-Bolts.
-1 Olympus (Med Pulse+Rail Guns - Gamma?)
-1 Artemis Escort Frigate
Used Sabers as Anti-Fighter vessels.
Out of Range
Fired 15 Torps at Saggi. Ambassador full DEW, Sabers targeting
T-Bolts with full OEW.
Saggi fired 6 Missiles at Saber (damned!). Five Missiles hit, but
causes only minor damage. Starfurys on Anti-ballistic Mission and bad
Luck: only 8 Torps. hit and destroyed the port side of the Saggi.
Sabers destroyed three T-Bolts.
Omega opened concentrated Fire (centerlined) on one Excelsior,
which lost the Initiative: destroyed!
Ambassador targeted by all EA-Ships and Fighters. Lost its Bow
and Stern. My Ships fired at the Saggi, but again bad luck; I'd never
rolled soooo many "1" for the damage roll: Fore side heavily damaged.
Previously fired Torps destroyed nearly the Fore side of the Oly, but
it wasn't enough (4 Structure remains).
Ambassador further damaged, lost Shield Generator (oh no!),
but survives, Constellation damaged. My Ships hold fire and recharged
Ambassador retreats, other Ships tried to blow away the Oly,
but missed with the majority of their shots. Aft side now heavily
Agreed to end the battle (time was out).
One Excelsior destroyed, Ambassador escaped (a piece of junk),
Constellation retreats, too. 2 Sabers light damaged. 1 Saber, 2
Mirandas, 1 Excelsior undamaged.
EA lost 3 T-Bolts and one Starfury, Saggitarius and Olympus heavily
damaged, Artemis nearly untouched and Omega brand-new.
O.K. I've had a bad luck on the dice rolls this time, but despite this
are the EA and serious Foe for UFP-Ships. The Interceptors and SPB-
Batteries turn the dice roll in his favor AND reduces the damage by
the torps. With Anti-Ballistic Support of Fighters and the heavy
structure, the EA can survive much more hits than e.g. the Brakiri.
In this case the point value is o.k., perhaps a minor increase is
