First Strike

[i]IDLE EMPIRE[/i] – to some, it is a feared pirate organisation, terrorising the honest folk of low security space.

A sharp eyed Uni pilot, on his maiden voyage in a covert ops blares through the communications channel – an enemy Jump Freighter is slowboating in Obanen.Uni Student McFighterCloud, leading in his Raven, hastily forms a strike force of 28 ships. The fleet is moving in less than five minutes. Uni veterans are wary – such a target is almost certainly bait.Yet no trap materialises, and the Uni fleet intecepts the ship in Kaaputenen, unleashing their firepower on the defenceless ship.

In a few minutes, there was no proof the ship ever existed, and the triumphant unistas, returning back to SAK for a round of warbeer, were credited with the first documented Jump Freighter loss of IDLE, valued at around 5.6 billion ISK.~~ Loutsos~~CazzahEUNN Reporters
