Tusker Heavy Assault Gang

RL is getting busy again, so my playtime has gone down and soon will be non existent, at least for the next few months. However, recently we've been trying out more gang compositions in order to mix it up from just kiting around all day and I've been mostly FCing those roams.

Fleet composition is fast armor HACs. On paper it seems similar to Agony's TWEED gang due to quite a few ships featuring in both (Deimoses, Oneiroses, Zealots etc.) but in reality it's different when you've flying them - it's a skirmish fleet setup, designed to skirt around the enemy and pick off tackle etc. rather than dive balls in for every engagement. Of course, this causes problems, for example it means it's more vulnerable to Battleship gangs due to having difficulties getting under the guns, but it's alot more flexible and has the ability to engage gangs that outnumber you without requiring a ton of Logi.

We've frapsed a few of the fights, such as the one below which a member uploaded to YouTube. His piloting was poor as you'll see...
Killboard link is here. Fleet compositions were


1x Deimos
3 x Omen Navy
1 x Vigilant
1 x Stabber Fleet
3 x Oneiros

Logi heavy but we were planning on fighting a 20 man gang, mostly in BCs, but instead ran into Beyond Divinity on the way to the fight.

Beyond Divinity

5 x Zealot
1 x Falcon
2 x Rapier
3 x Arazu
1 x Taranis
1 x Stabber Fleet issue
1 x Curse
2 x Scimitar



  1. 'Tusker Heavy Assault Gang' ... have more terrifying words ever been spoken ;)

    Sounds like a good fight. I particularly liked the use of remote ECCM to boost the logis sensor strength.

  2. I love videos with voice comms rather than music.

  3. gf. Stop making us look bad.

    Not sure if I'd bother with remote ECCM. Also, SFIs sure are fast.
