While I agree taking out the harvesters on Tiber are a priority they should not be targeted during the battle since I don't believe they have much weapons considering they are for acquiring resources, I think we should target on their combat vessels first.
Until we can begin recon on the vanduul I am unsure of the vanguard and Virgil forces. As we don't know if their forces would be substantial enough to reinforce the campaign sufficiently.
I also believe we should have some portion of Hammer force remain at Orion in the event they counter attack.
As I said, _after_ we have liberated Orion and _if_ recon shows, there is no way to take on the Tiber fleet, only then would I advocate to make the harvesters the primary target, because at that point, all that matters is hitting the Vanduul where it really hurts.Taking out their industrial capacity will hurt them more in the long run than taking out a couple hundred fighters and a hand full of capitals.
How would you envision force composition?
It sounds like that HAMMER would be made up of the majority of our forces such as light and fast fighters, bombers or small multi-crewed ships like the Connie. Sort of like a Cavalry Attack Force, whereas Anvil would be smaller numerically, but made up of the larger and slower ships. Your Idris Corvettes, Tali's and other heavier ships (with their escorting Hornets).
What you are describing is a battle, not a raid, Hawkeye. In a raid, the offensive unit is necessarily cut off from the jump point and reinforcements. Slower units won't make it back.
