FAIL: The Freighter part 2

Been asked a couple of times what actually happened so..

I'd been watching this chap move stuff in and out of the station in an Itty V for a week or two, he was using an Insta undock a few million clicks out from the station. So despite a coupleo of half hearted attempts I'd not managed to catch him with the Hurricane.

Deciding that the best way to catch him was to be waiting at his insta point. I kept my eye on him, when he next he docked, I switched Ana into his cov ops frigate, and deployed probes 20au away from the station, then set them up in standard cross form 0.5au around the station, this way when he undocks, i'd be able to get his undock spot, then catch him another day with a combat ship.

So there I was, drinking Quafe intravenously, just chilling when he undocks in a Oblieisk!
Oh fuck is he going to use the insta? He finally warps, looks like its towards the insta, checking the range, yep! Pressing scan, 100% hit, there is no choice I have to do this now, its not every day he undocks a freighter.

Warping the cov-ops down, I decloak and spam the lock button cursing the targetting delay, he's moving already alligned out, I engage the MWD and bump him, just as the lock resolves, and I apply the scram...

At this point I realised my Alt doesn't have a combat ship in system, so I then contract my Tornado to him, and frantically press buttons to accept the contract. Undocking the alt lands with the Tornado and start to apply DPS, on landing with the alt I see the notification that the pilot has initiaed Self destruct, I try to reship with Anabaric, but unfortunately I'm not quick enough to get the DPS ship back into the fight, and the freighter explodes in low structure.

Close but no cigar...

So I killed a freighter...

..well almost, bloody thing self destructed before I could finish it was about 10% structure.

But hey, its another wreck...

"21:13:38 Notify Obelisk belonging to Janet Dreamer self-destructs."

Putting bloody great big holes in things...

Anabaric dropped out of warp at the planet, and imediately locked onto the covert signal coming from Arthouris's ship. As the Tornado's bow swung round he once again smiled at how quickly she handled compared to the Hurricane. Lights flashed up on his display, weapons armed, thermal safeties disengaged, the warp disruptor light flickered, then finally came online.
He made a mental note to get that fixed, then engaged the warp drive.
The Tornado frame shook slightly as it entered the short hop to the POS where its victim was outside the shields maintaining the weapons systems. He landed on grid 10km from the Badger Mk II, immediately alligning out to a planet, the weapons locked, and 800mm shells reduced the transport to rubble in a few volleys.

Warning alarms started to chime on his console as the POS gunners frantically started to lock the Battlecruiser, but the agile Tornado was already in warp before the guns could finish locking.

"Are we having fun yet?" Arth's manical grin popped up on the neocom screen."She's fucking awesome, did you see the way that hull came apart when those 800's hit her?!"
"Arth's she's perfect, you were watching then?"
"Yeah course I was, I bought her for you, course I'm gonna see what she does" replied Arth smugly.
"We need a real challenge, find me something with teeth.."
"Done, there's a hurricane in belt 1-1"
"what do you think..." Arth replied sarcastically cutting off the comm channel.

The Tornado landed at 20km from the stationary hurricane, as Anabaric started to lock the hurricane a pilgrim decloaked inside of 10km, expecting this Ana had already maxed the speed on the tornado and was burning upwards, the microwarp drive thermal safety off, the maximum speed of 3500ms was fast approaching, now well out of range of the pilgrims deadly short range neuts the 800's made fast work of the approaching hurricane.
The pilgrim quickly decided that this fight hadn't gone as planned and cloaked just as the hurricane exploded.

Arty's grinning face popped up on the screen.
"Your still alive then?"
"A pilgrim? did you know that was there... ?"
"quit your bitching you wanted a challenge"
"Got something else lined up for you already, when its good its good, some idiot's got a battleship ratting over in 7-3, Get there now!"

Anabaric cancelled the overheat warnings, and engaged the warp drive again, on landing in the belt the mix of T2/T1 drones confirmed Arth's original statement, this guy was obviously not ready to be flying this ship, let alone bringing it into a combat environment.
As the Tornado's 800mm heavy autocannon shells rapidly boiled through the Typhoon class battleship, Anabaric sent a quick picture to Nashh of the ruined typhoon, the subject of the message...
'You owe me another shiny'

"Arth, I owe you a beer, dock up"
