[FT] Sector HQ Attack

A strong NAC fleet attacks an NSL sector HQ station, both sides were 2000pts the NSL had a sector HQ station and a pair of defense platforms.

NSL sector HQ

Half the NAC fleet lead by a Tiger class strike cruiser

The other half of the fleet led by the flag ship a Trafalgar Class Super battle dreadnought.

The missile defense platform opens fire, this is bad.

Deja vu!

Some asteroids drift across the engagement zone

An NAC cruiser is destroyed by the missiles.

A torpedo fighter sqaudron engages the station, however it is heavily protected by PDS.

The two NAC wings converge to attack the station, the NSL ships are still hanging back.

Having exhausted their torpedos purple sqaudron moves into position to protect the flag from any possible fighter attack

The defenders start to engage as yellow fighter squadron makes its attack run

The NSL moves into attack

Heavily damaged by the missile attack the NAC strike cruiser attempts to make its escape.

Those asteroids are going to be a problem...

The fleets are now engaging at point blank range.

The massed fire power of the NAC flag is sufficient to destroy the NSL station.

NAC FTL drives are spun up as the NSL fleet desperately tries to cause some casualties.

Under attack from both missiles and asteroids this frigates future is not bright!

One last casualty for the NSL fleet.


The NAC fleet made the jump and left the system with the bonus 200pts for destroying the station the score was NAC 942 vs. 542 NSL. It was how ever a lot closer then it seemed the Tiger class ship that escaped only had two damage boxes left and the SDN only had seven boxes left, the SDN would have brought the NSL 911pts!


  1. Good batrep. What rules do you use?

  2. Cheers, we use Full Thrust, which have the virtue of being free as they are long out of print.

  3. Thanks for posting. I enjoyed your play-by-play as well as the pictures
