I think there is a lot of confusion and I hope to address it.
The operation yesterday was from a new FC that wanted to train new players to bombing runs or pilots interested in bombing fleets. We used to have an established bomber wing in Provi however, the FC and many of the group that formed the bomber wing were lost to Provi during the invasion. From either becoming refugees to being lost to darkness. We heard this would be a target rich fight and were not disappointed.
We had 8 pilots of which only 6 made it to the conflict. Our goal was to bomb targets of opportunity in the conflict. Of a fighting that had well over 1500 people the concern of 6 pilots and their activities should be beyond your concern. Our damages were laughable in the grand scheme of things.
So we bombed both sides yet our killboards show mainly goons. In my defense one bombing run I attempted to kill the fighters harassing a goon fleet. I missed horribly and my bomb tagged more of them than the fighters.
We bombed Darkness Muninns as well and NCdot Capital ships. I even have the killmark for the NCdot FC brother bob. So please assure yourself that I am no friend to Panfam. An enemy in which I will go to my grave hating and detesting with my very soul. I will never forgive nor forget what they did to my homeland.
We bombed all sides and the problem was that goons died more in subcaps so we happened to have more credit of hitting the Goons than the other factions present. After I ran out of bombs I stayed to target Panfam capitals with my torpedoes or pointing them. Finally after realizing I was the soul survivor of the Provi bomber fleet I returned the 51 jumps home.
I honestly didn’t know the target location until the very last second and was just a Pilot. The FC choose warp ins and targets. We bombed everyone and ensured it was good training for the new brothers. Its something different and hopefully we build from this a stronger bomber wing in Provi. One that will surpass our former abilities.
For our aid to the Militia we stand just as firm with them today as we did weeks ago. We have already provided aid in the form of liquid isk and ships to supply those fighting in the area. Any militia group that fights in the area qualifies for Provi relief funds. While some aid has already been given we have earmarked much more set for the conflict. The goal is that our brave pilots in the militia will never be lacking in ships.
We have provided several cover fleets in the area and will continue to do so. However this piggy backs off a former law in provi which was nick named Arsia’s law. Which states any Amarr loyalists that requests our aid will gain our ships in their defense regardless of Kos standings and past history for the glory of the Amarrian Empire.
Ive not personally been to the warzone the last couple days because I have been engaged in Capital battles against the forces of Recking Crew which are slaves or minions at best to Panfam.
In the coming days we will continue to provide additional aid and step up fleets into the region. We also hope to establish several beach heads into the region while working in conjunction with other Amarrian loyalist groups fighting in and around the region.
As always the forces of the Marches are here in an assisting role and not a dominate one. So to conclude.
A. 6 bombers hitting everyone in a 1500 plus pilot conflict is beyond the importance of someone like you. I truly mean that because I respect your position inside Goons.
B. It was such a minor detail in the total conflict. We did not protect Panfam or target only one group. Such as the Goon fleet that followed for 11 jumps out of Provi our All Amarrian ship fleet that went to kill the UK Poco in Floseswin. So instead of UK fighting us in a all Minmatar Fleet they allowed Goons to save it. I was personally saddened that goons would interfere with such a traditional battle of foes that predate any rivalry. Then the Goon fleet sat on the Poco and saved it.
C. I would not listen to any hype that we specially targeted one group. Its just that one side lost more subcaps than the other and because we had slightly hazed them with our bombs before we were credited with the kill.
D. Not really much of a story here. Heck goons are free to roam and shoot what ever they like. I think people are trying to overstate our usefulness in the battle. However, my personal kill of a NCdot FC might smash any story of us helping Panfam. However, like you said you know of our past dealings and my total hatred of Panfam you should look into your heart or your steel trap of a mind you have and ferret out the logic and reasoning that rumors are just rumors.
As always I stand in defense of Amarr, Provi, and my fellow battle brothers.
Amarr Victor. Ave Providence.
