"Come On, Undock!"

Last night I logged in and was informed that we were camping a war target in station. "ORLY? What's he flying?" I asked. "Manticore," was the response.

I figured I could use this as an opportunity to try out the new Eagle Heavy Assault Cruiser I bought a couple weeks back.

As you can see, it can sling antimatter ammo out to 35 km with ease and the tracking is such that I can easily hit ships with a transversal of 1300 m/s or less. With a six second lock time on a corpmate's interceptor, I was confident that any stealth bomber undocking would only have a sliver of window to make his escape and no time at all to pop any of my frigate buddies.

Unfortunately, the war target was off eating or whatever and we didn't see any action. But we prevented him from having any fun in Eve and sometimes that's all the victory you need.

In other news, I completed training for Sensor Linking IV which gives me access to Remote Sensor Booster IIs and I've got a Myrmidon cooked up for that purpose with three of them installed. Now I'm back on Energy Emissions V (which I switched from to avoid the skill completing during this week's patch as a saftey precaution) and that skill completes tonight. Soon capital energy transfers will be mine!
