I'm seeing no cutlass red.
I probably should post here. I have a Cutlass Red, and I would have no problem following you guys on scouting missions in case something goes wrong
Probably best if you stay at a staging area and wait for an SOS to come in with support. It was one of the things we talked about in the last meet up. Using the MFAPs as staging areas for recon missions with support a jump or so away if things get really hairy.
The problem is, as always, that we can't know what we need to look for; we can however make some guesses and assumptions to form a groundwork. As such here would be my best guess as to items of interest and their order of priority:0. Capships: with the probable scarcity and how much value they would bring to the effort this would come above all other priorities.1. Jump points: In my opinion these could be even more critical to our success than knowing where the enemy are at least initially.2. Enemy positions and numbers: fairly self explanatory, though we should probably focus on finding any fixed installations and large fleets rather than trying to track every last scythe.4. Strategic "terrain": asteroid fields, nebulae, and such as well as their effects, if any, on shipboard systems.5. Any other material that could aid the effort either materially or monetarily.
Before even reading this forum I went on a bit of a searching mission and layed out the closest least amount of jump points into orion. 3 jump points 2 of which cross vanduul systems one of those systems being nicknamed the grinder as another poster has set it. If we take in idrises we need large jump points. and we will need a staging area outside of vanduul space to conduct operations from.... Downside will be fuel and security from what I see. Here is what I have in my notesOberon unclaimed system with 1 habitable world and occasional vanduul raids. Planet Uriel failed terraforming attempt to warm the planets core most settlers live underground on this planet. Large jump point Oberon to Virgil. Virgil is a former uee planet till vanduul claimed the system. Tropical world was once a vacation spot for wealthy elites. Now constant bombings by uee has left portions of the planet with swirling ash in the atmosphere.To next jump point we need to cross the outer edge of this system (the entire sytem) quantum drive and fuel comes into play here. From Virgil we jump into Tiber also known as the grinder because of the constant ongoing battle in the system that has claimed millions of lives Expect a strong uee and vanduul presence here.. Entry jump point is on the edge of an asteroid field. Then cross the center of the system to the Orion jump point on the opposite end of the asteroid field and system. Will pass by the only habitbale planet which also holds vanduul capital ships.The jump into Orion puts us far from any main points of interest and the planet we wish to take Armitage the first planet and settlement to encounter the vanduul is on the opposite side of the system Now as a strategist I would say this is an impossible feat... insane to attempt a raid and impossible to hold being completely surrounded if we by some miracle succeed to take the planet. Supply lines would be nonexistent. Knowing this I would say take virgil sytem and hold it... Strategic and economic value is so much higher. Once virgil is secure then Tiber... Tiber is where we will meet the strongest resistance and I for one would want to face it head on rather than trying to fly through it hoping it goes unscathed.
