Following my actuel FC game (Check this thread
), we will have a little boarding fight with jost59
I'll play some Star Navy Infantery who are boarding an heavily dommaged Marauder class Pirate Frigate and jost59 will defend.Here the background :
The first FC mission was a simple patrol in a sector with a moon. The sector was occupied by a group of Pirates who where building an outpost for futur raids on merchant fleets. Hopefully, the patrol found them and decision was made to invade the pirate outpost as soon as possible before they flee away.
The 2nd mission, the attack is currently underway and the situation is as follow :
- SN BlackSun Squadron clear the space from Pirate Fighters with their Heavy Fighters.
- The Pirate Frigate, the "Jewel of Fora", which was call for help by the Pirate from the outpost come by to try to evacuate them but got heavy dommage and is now trying to flee away. Engines were damaged when a Pirate figher collide with it, AA turret is destroyed and the bridge got a direct hit from a torpedo.
- SN come with 2 Assault Shuttles (a full Platoon of SN Infantry) in order to attack the ground base. QG asked that one shuttle (2 squads) board the Frigate in order to (try) to capture the Captain and at least, find clue about the home system of the Frigate. The 2nd shuttle (with 1 Squad and Platoon Commander team) will disembark near the Pirate outpost. If/When the Frigate is captured, the remaining SN Soldiers will come as reinforcement for the ground attack.
- 1 SN Heavy Fighter will cover the Frigate (in case of space Pirate reinforcement) and the 2nd Fighter will provide ground cover for the main assault.
Initial thread about this game can be found here
, with the initial orders of the Platoon.
This thread will concern the boarding of the Frigate (will see how it plays before doing or not the main ground attack, as it will my first game of this kind).
SN Soldiers will be equiped mainly with Laser Rifles & Frag Grenades. The goal is to capture the Frigate & gather some intel, so no need to explode everything Orders, coming during the fight between Heavy Fighters and the Pirate Frigate :
Commander, your orders are changed. Follow the orders for your troops aboard Medusa-01. Their priority will be to neutralize the com center of the outpost.
The troops from Medusa-02 will board the Pirate Marauder class Frigate. Our intel team found that it's the "Jewel of Fora". This CapShip is known to be a member of a bigger Pirate fleet which cause us lot of troubles. The frigate is heavily damaged and ready for a boarding action.
Engine room damaged, defensive AA turret destroyed, the command bridge was heavily damaged after a successful torpedo hit.
The frigate is now trying to escape the sector but we'll not let them flee away.
Your orders are to board the frigate and capture it. You have to capture their Captain, if not dead yet, and gather maximum intell data about its missions. One of your priority objective is to hack their nav computers. We want to know where is the main fleet or their main base.
If the assault is successfull, let minimal troops onboard to conduct the frigate out of the sector to our main base, the other troops will embark onboard the Assault Shuttle and reinforce the main ground attack on the moon.
If the assault is unsucessfull, the BlackSun Squadron will be ordered to destroy the frigate.
Good luck Commander.
