Second Battle of Fromeltar

Postby Terl Obar » Mon Feb 23, 2009 10:08 pm

This thread will be for playing out the battle at Fromeltar on day 5 (Groth Station).

Here is a link to the blank tactical map with numbered hexes.

The UPF should select the location of the planet, the hex the station will start in and the direction of the orbit around the planet (CW or CCW). After that the Sathar can place their ships.

Okay, here is the UPF initial position:

The Sathar can now place their 4 light cruisers and 7 destroyers. I need position, heading and speed.

I've moved the sathar and the UPF station since there is no combat possible this turn. Here are the positions at the start of round 2. It's the Sathar's move again.

(PS you only moved our craft 6 hexes, we started at 8 and decelerated by one to 7)

Oops, wrong series. Station will target the lead LC with all available weapons.

Hon. Knighthawks;

Hello Will, Good luck with bagging a Sathar ship at Fromeltar. Let me know if you would like to discuss your grand strategy for the UPF defense. I have posted a topic in the encrypted files concerning Sathar strategy and counters for it. post a reply and let's start coordinating the defense of the frontier.

Respectfully

Samaritan

P. S. Docking the unassigned minesweeper to the station was brilliant. Nothing in the rules requires the mine patterns and seeker missiles to be actively tended during an attack. This will keep the worms honest and rack up a few free kills. Good Job!

As the sathar approach the station, it fires it's laser battery at the lead destroyer but misses. The sathar return fire but from this extreme range only one electron battery connects causing 6 HP of damage to the station.

Here are the positions after the station has moved in it's orbit. Both sides can declare their shots for this phase.
