Thread: Farragut under repair

  1. #1

    Farragut under repair

    I saw something interesting for the first time while playing this game (apart from combat, of course) (and apart from pulsars, binaries, and trinaries). On 2017 February 5, I saw a Farragut battle cruiser under repair outside the front of Evans Port in the Parutis system. Every now and again, I could see blue flashes from the welding. There was a Federal Corvette patrolling nearby. I wish that I could own and pilot a Farragut!

    What could have caused hull damage to a mighty Farragut?

    Repair droids with welders.

    Nice shots. Thanks for sharing. I haven't seen that.

    An Imperial interdictor?
    I suggest youi to watch the short Elite video "Damocles"!

    There are some more of these repair stations for capitols around there
    You can see some imperial ones in Cubeo at the agriculture station there (don't remember the name right now)

    What can cause such damage? Another battlecruiser!
    It happened already two times to me, that i found a batllecruiser from the federation and another one from pirates in a fight when dropping into distress signal source thread 4.
    This is one hell of a battle and happens very rarely but is really great

    In Cubeo there is a similar station for the Imperial Capital Ships, always heavily damaged ships over there. Nice pictures!

    A dev probably took it to do some "bounty hunting" in open and just made it out with 1% hull intact.

    Rhea has also two damaged Farragut BC's. Although the lighting is no where near as good as this





    I wish we can wander around after 3.0 on those mighty ships...maybe get some very special Missions...

    I dunno, but the Imperial ships I saw have what looks like 'claw' damage.

    Video (skip to about 2:30 for 'claw' marks):

    Almost anything, given their modest combat abilities and general brain-deadedness.

    Nice pictures.
    I hope to run into something like that myself.
    Has not happened yet.

    It is great to have this in the ED galaxy.
    I would love to be able to dock with such an installation and get missions.

    thx for this thread so I could go to these locations...

    how long have they been there? and has there been any difference to these ships since the 1st time they appeared there?
