[COMPLETE] 2021-03-05 20:00 Bombing Practice

Post by Tomcat Evergreen »

We will practice using Stealth Bombers with Bombs. Commands and manouvers and maybe even some blops bridge taking. We may talk about strategies on how or when to use bombers.

NOTE: This does not have a theory part, we will fly through space.

When: Friday 2021-03-05 20:00 EVE time
Where: E-UNI private mumble (NSC Education)
Duration: 30 to 60 minutes (first time, no idea how long we will be busy)

Topics Covered:
  • Bombs
Student requirements:
  • Be able to fly a Stealth Bomber (Hound, Nemesis, Manticore or Purifier)
  • Be able to use a Covert Ops Cloaking Device II
  • Be able to use a Bomb Launcher I
  • Access to EVE Uni Private Mumble. Use this guide for set-up: Setting up Private Mumble
There is no specific fit required for this practice session.
Bring your own ship, as I only may have a limited number of ships ready to sell or loan.
But I have some Bomb Launchers for those who only have a Blops bombers without the launcher.
Bomb Launchers may be on the market in PC9 as well.

Seven people joined me for this practice session.
We went briefly through some theory before we undocked and started going through the motions of a bomb run on a stationary target (mobile depot). First without cloak and step by step, so everyone could see and understand what was happening, then the same cloaked.
Following this we did a bomb run under harder conditions, moving target and having to pick a random warpout point (no bookmark provided).
After two attempts there and the target still alive we switched bomb type and changed the scenario to chasing a target into a bubble trap and bomb it there where we finally killed it.
Just as we ended the session, we got word of a nearby wormhole with a gas huffing venture in it and used what we just had practiced:

Thanks everyone for coming. :D

P.S.: Now would be a good time to seed the market in PC9 with bombs . :wink:

Unfortunately some work stuff came up, or I would have been the eighth attendant.

But I do have a Hound in PC9 now, so… next time.

Ammo was indeed a bit hard to find locally on such short notice. My AMC-based alt is starting on torpedo production; looking to move into bombs asap. Would be happy to help out a bit with that, if there’s a repeat of this class in the future.
