Capsuleer Fleet engages Beast Lords at Oijamon’s sun.
Sansha Kuvakei made another daring raid into Empire Space today bringing a huge fleet of battleships, battlecruisers and a flagship Supercarrier, The Kundalini Manifest into Oijamon.
Using their wormhole technology, the Sansha were quickly able to bring the local constellation to a stand still, positioning themselves on system gates and station docking entrances to prevent the free movement of the local population. Resistance was swiftly beaten down as lasers, torpedoes and a selection of EWAR was brought to bear on any ships entering the system or undocking.
The pilots of New Eden responded in kind as soon as word began to spread out over the local communications channels, forming up huge fleet to drive them back. At one point in the battle, nearly 200 capsuleers had engaged the Sansha forces, working to remove their support ships before turning their fire onto the Flagship Super Carrier.
After a long and intense battle, the Kundalini Manifest was destroyed and the wormhole on the gate to Auviken collapsed. Celebrations, however were short lived as reports quickly came in of a second wormhole protected by a huge fleet of Sansha Beast Lords was discovered close to the systems sun. Moving swiftly to intercept, the capsuleers were able to defeat them, destroying over 390 battleships and leaving a sprawling battle field of wrecks.
As to what the Beast Lords were doing at the centre of the system is a different story. Light Speed Interactive have received conflicting reports concerning some direct interest by the Sansha in the Sun itself but we’d advise the local population to not be concerned as yet.
ISD reported today on an Incursion event in Rasile last week. Light Speed Interactive were on site and captured live footage of the battle.
It was touch and go for the capsuleer fleet at one point, with the fleet preparing to warp out when they started to take heavy losses from the overwhelming Sansha fleet, but their luck held out with the timely collapse of the Sansha wormholes, leaving the Revenant class super carrier at the mercy of the capsuleers.
Light Speed are able to confirm the surprising similarities between the ISD member Tedra Kerrigan and the Sasha Slave piloting the Revenant. Could this suggest something more sinister occurring here?
Earlier today a strange wormhole opened in Hebisa, an otherwise inconsequential system in the Frar constellation of Metropolis. Light Speed Interactive had an agent on the field who was able to catch some video of the wormhole. Sadly the agent was caught in the cross fire when the Sansha came through the wormhole but was able to transmit some of his early rough footage before being caught and his ship destroyed.
Why this wormhole opened up and appeared stable for a few hours before being used by the Sansha is unclear. Could this be a malfunction of their wormhole devices? Or perhaps a test of new technology. Either way, the Nations ability to open up Wormholes seemingly at will is both terrifying and intriguing.
Right now our thoughts are with the family of Viktor Levick, the brave agent who was able to obtain the footage. We’ll be committing resource to locating him hopefully alive.
