Surprise Deployment of Thanatos Carrier

2008-06-15 - By Svarthol

Huola - Elements of the Amarr Secret Service deployed a Thantos carrier, Giant Green Thing, in a surprise move at the Ishukone Corporation Factory. This unexpected action sent the Minmatar fleet running.

On hand for the medium sized skirmish were elements of the 24th Imperial Crusade, and other unidentified pilots. The brief engagement that ensued lasted until the Minmatar disengaged, and fled to the nearest gate.

The pilot of the Thanatos, Mobius, had this to say about the combat operation, ‘All the battleships I was engaging either docked or warped away when I undocked. I can confirm a cruiser and a frigate were destroyed by me.’

‘This is the first time I’ve seen a carrier deployed in the crusade. This may be a sign [of our] willingness to escalate the conflict,’ Inquisitor Varinor was quoted as saying.
