No response from Kotau? The 3rd Flotilla would be a start, but I see a Hunters Moon with Troops in that fleet. We might want to leave troops behind until we are sure we have cleared away any fighters first. Hopefully we can do something in the next couple of months before they build more defenses?

The strategy I am using is main fleet strikes first and continues attacking till planetary defenses are depleted then a portion of the attackers stay to keep the planet clear after the troops land that way its easy to bring in reinforcements if needed.

That strategy is about the only practical one, and also allows for bringing in extra troops if needed without suffering any damage, especially to troop transports.

Sadly, still no reply from Kotau! AWOL? AND I see his fleet heading in the opposite direction! So, 50 ships are going to hit Yullado III. Gee, don't kill the planet completely (yer I know, you can't).

So ANYONE likely to have a spare fleet to cover Worric VII, and I guess that will have to wait until Yullado II is cleared?

System Lord Alikiwi, within 2 months time our coalition will hit Yullado III and drop all massed troops. We are estimating that the planet doesn't have that many enemy troops on it since, if they did, System Lord Combat Wombat's small force on planet would not have lasted this long. Therefore, since it was most likely not idle, it had to have been building fighters. Once we clear the fighters off and drop the troops it shouldn't take all that long to overcome and cap it out.

After this, I'll be more than happy to come help conquer Worric VII, my friend. Overkill on our part against the planets fighters is a good thing, limiting our exposure. We shall use the same tactics in Worric. Could you give us an estimate of your total troops you can bring to bear? I still need to confer with Captain Kotau about whether or not he wants to lead the ground invasion in Worric or whether I will.

Rest assured that we have not forgotten you, System Lord.

By next month I'll have at least 560 troops. I shall however look at increasing production further, we will certainly need them. I guess you don't want a repeat of what happened last time in Yulado, so I shall wait patiently for that operation to be successful Wink

Nice to hear from someone! Thanks.

560 troops? That is good news indeed. How many of them are Harmease and how many are strictly defensive such as Tutamen? Its true you will likely need more but that is definetly a good start!

I'm thinking that Captain Kotau should lead the ground invasion for Worric instead of I so that he can get the experience needed for the unending wars to come (pp that is).

Roughly 240 Harmease, 200 Tutamen and 150 FWN, and counting...

It is true that my fastest ships, as well as myself, are going to assist with the Yullado invasion task force. I have no intention of dropping out of the Worric joint operations plan, but as Commander Astorax has mentioned, the more the better, when it comes to preventing friendly casualties. The force I am fielding will be used for fighter supression/orbital bombardment only. Along with the other commanders who will take part in ground combat, our combined strategies will allow us a quick battle and relatively low attrition rate regarding our forces.

I am confident about this action's outcome, and I am just as confident that the Federation will wrest a quick victory once our troops hit dirt.

The Yullado operation has been a rousing sucsess, with not a single space-based Federation asset lost in the invasion. The 3rd Flotilla will arrive at Worric IX in two months.

I have detached my troop carrier and sent it towards Worric VI, your main troop supply. I have also recently aquired a new Harvest Moon class troop transport, as well as a new Saint-class carrier. Both are enroute to be deployed in your area.

Also, the FNS Auroch has been fully repaired as of last month, and I expect to have the entire 3rd Flotilla's support in the action against Worric VII, which I will lead personally.

Thank you for your patience Senator, I feel this action will result in a very positive outcome.

Thank you Kotau. I have been ferrying troops and fighters into Worric as I'm sure you're aware, oh, and also myself! I am about to upgrade the HHS Hermetic, not sure that its needed anyway.

I would like, that when you pick up all those troops, and we may need another transport, that you could pick up myself as well. I intend to lead our troops myself. It should be a big moral booster for our hard working population!

I'll probably have to write an order there for that, to satisfy our paper efficent SecState. Wink

SL Alikiwi,

With the orbital victory at Yullado III, the DDS Hailstorm and Ziffin will immediately head for DD Squad Two, guarding the Sundry WP. Dragonstar is also moving the DDS Achilles and Bowshaft there; they are currently crossing Fizbon.

Just giving you a heads-up.

Much appreciated, I was a little concerned about the rather weak forces currently there.

My apologies, System Lord. I failed to properly monitor the strength of this squad. Hopefully the situation will be rectified before any serious incursions are attempted.

HHS Hermetic is undergoing a refit at Fizbon VI, which will increase its cargo capacity by 50%. It will then head back to Worric to load up fighters and some troops and myself for the invasion. I expect the refit to take 2 months.

SL Alikiwi, 5th Flotilla is now inbound to Worric IX plus assorted single ships that I shall regroup into my Flotilla. My Harvest Moon transport is at your disposal, m'Lord. Shall I send it to Worric VI to pick up troops?

You may certainly pick up troops, and I think Kotau is doing the same. I may have to write up an authorisation for that in the Lawyers office. I'll advise when thats ready. Thats assuming you are 'borrowing' them. If however, you purchase them well thats straight forward.

I see no need for the Navy to purchase troops, SL Alikiwi. The Navy can't own planets so the Navy owning troops is superfluous. Write up the authorization and I'll be more than happy to transport your troops for you though. When is the start off date for this invasion - 2 more months? I think it might take my transport 2 months just to get to Worric VI.

Authorisation has been duly provided via the Lawyers office for both Captains. As HHS Hermetic has completed its upgrade, I shall load it with fighters and move it to Worric VI, to escort any troop ships from there to Worric VII.

Hopefuly Prophets 2 ships can get rid of that destroyer that keeps being a nuisance.

Shall we then meet (after troop pickup) at position 9, 10 for a combined heavy assault?

Warning!
I MOD is in Sundry! Question is, will it chase FNS Apache, or head into Sephandris, or into Worric? I doubt the latter given its position. I think Captain Astorax you will probably have given your ship orders to move.

In the mean time can I suggest Kotau that you move the 3rd Fleet R&R to the Worric w/p to Sundry? I am also about to increase the number of defense platforms there as well.

Kotau has handed me control of his 2 troop transports, but he did not see this in the lawyers office > http://www.spaceempires.net/ftopict-6140.html

Still no answer from either of yous as to where shall we meet for this invasion. I believe we may want to have the troop ships in the first assault, I'm worried we may kill the population in the first pass, though I guess thats not too likely?

M'lord, no, its not too likely that we would kill that much population in the first pass. Also, theres too much chance that the troop transports will be shot down before they can unload their troops.

If you insist on having the transports come in in the same month as the warships, then have them come on a different day. Remember how we synchronized the attack on Yullado V? Same principle involved only move the transports away 1 space and then back to the planet so they arrive atleast 1 day later. Perhaps then we will have cleared all hostile fighters and the transports will be safe to move in.

I have my troop transport moving towards Worric VI, eta next month. I still have 2 ships in Yullado along with my Logistics Fleet but I am amenable to starting beforehand.

OOC: I was thinking Kotau would be the one to drop down and get the pp for the ground combat so he could buff his avatar up for later. Accordingly, I'll let him take the lead here. Whatever you guys want to do is ok with me - I have alot of fighter support to lend. Oh, I forgot, I left my avatar on Yullado III after the last battle so I'm sending my flagship destroyer Loki to pick it back up so make that 3 ships in Yullado along with my Logistics Fleet.

Kotau suggests you park you fleet 1 sector west of Worric VII, and I'll place the transports (3) one sector north 10, 9. I have only about 40 troops for your transport, with another 10 at Worric VIII. That gives us 3 and a bit transports.
Perhaps check at IRC!

I've made a drawing with a rough idea of the battle plan,

Astorax the staggered approach to force 2 combats (one without the transports, then one when the transports arrive) is exactly what I was thinking.

Comments?
