Rupture - Part II
Both of my loyal readers probably remember my losing to a Rupture when I didn't have the drones on my overview. I was orbiting close enough to the Rupture that its 425mm autocannons weren't able to hit me, but the drones did me in.
This time it was different - but not in a good way.
I tracked down Kmelx's Rupture ratting in Auner. I turned on the damage control, overheated everything, and warped to zero. There was the Rupture just 6k away! YES!
I targeted, scrambed (didn't want him running away!), webbed and turned on my nos. Then I hit "orbit at 500m" and headed his way with my 150mm autocannons blazing! And there were drones on the overview- so those would be primary targets once I was safely orbiting the Rupture at a close distance.
20 seconds later sirens, red warning lights, explosions, and I was in my pod. This time, against this Rupture, I didn't manage to get under his guns. He destroyed me on the way in. Those 425mm autocannons are deadly!
In hindsight, I probably should have turned on the overheated afterburner instead of just strolling in under normal power - that might have given me enough speed to survive the salvos as I approached. Next time maybe I'll remember to try that...
