So another nasty surprise from the Special Fleet, dealing full damage to all 3 attacking fleets instead of 1/3. And perhaps some regenerative properties also…
Alright, we gave it a good beating, and it gave us a good beating too. Let’s see what it has left…
Fighter attack strength: 15+6=21 (40)
Capital attack strength: 11+8=19 (25)
Fighters at 38% Strength
Capital ships at 42% Strength
Stats comparable to one of our own fleets now. Besides all the extras that go with it. It’ll be 43/47 if it gets 5/5 back. In which case it would be:
Fighter attack strength: 17+6=23 (40)
Capital attack strength: 12+9=21 (25)
Fighters at 43% Strength
Capital ships at 47% Strength
The 4th SF and the 2nd DD need to get out and Resupply. I would advise Lyrae for both of them. The 1st CRF can go in and is strong enough to attack. The 3rd CRF is strong enough to stick around and attack too. I think Zeal is ready, so it should be used prior to the attack. The 4th CRF can also re-engage. Three CRF fleets working in unison. It will be beautiful, and Lorric will be sad he could not be there.
3rd CRF Fleet:
Fighter attack strength: 16+8=24 (16+2+2+3)
Capital attack strength: 16+8=24 (17+2+3)
Fighters at 56% Strength, 3rd Gen
Capital ships at 63% Strength
4th CRF Fleet:
Fighter attack strength: 15+7=22 (16+2+1+2)
Capital attack strength: 14+8=22 (17+1+2)
Fighters at 65% Strength, 3rd Gen
Capital ships at 62% Strength
Master of Logistics
1st CRF Fleet:
Fighter attack strength: 21+10=31 (16+2+3+2)
Capital attack strength: 20+11=31 (17+3+2)
Fighters at 89% Strength, 3rd Gen
Capital ships at 86% Strength
Master in Logistics
Total damage = 77/3=26/26.
It should also be noted the portal has now closed.
I will quote the rest of the plan I made underneath for ease:
Okay, I think this is the best option for the next turn.
First, several people need to double Resupply. My 2nd CRF, the 4th CRF and the 1st and 2nd SF fleets. None of these fleets are in any shape to do battle.
Next, time to wrap up that little skirmish in the South. The two UGCR Fleets can move in and destroy the Nordera (they‘ll do 46% capship damage, the Nordera only have 44%). The 1st LSF can move down to Draco on the second action,
and the 1st CSA can take Kardoen.
For Aldebaran, the 1st DD, 3rd DD and 3rd SF can crush the 2nd Fura’ngle. (102 capship damage. Let's hear it for Barrage! )
It might actually be better to have Droid not take Kardoen, and go straight to Algol, so he can join the battle next turn. In fact, yes, I think that would be much better.
