Battle at Priori, 3073
« on: 05 January 2014, 16:13:30 »
Wars of Reaving states that when Clan Star Adder moved to take the Priori system in November 3073 their task force was opposed by a sizeable Burrock defensive force including three vessels missing from the Star Adder naval reserve. The Star Adders had already identified in December 3072 that a Kimagure and a Riga were missing from the MSKC-2 naval cache.

Of the seven ships listed as having served with the Burrocks at the height of their power, two were captured Clan Cobra WarShips, one was the CSA Yodan, and the others were the Hetherington, the Admiral Russell Nga, the two Makos Stone Crab and Ingrid Bucharev. The Ingrid Bucharev was apparently confined to the Tanis system after the helium seals failed in mid-3072, and the Hetherington was reportedly destroyed at Salonika by the Diamond Sharks.

That suggests that the three WarShips fielded by the Burrocks at Priori were the Yodan, Admiral Russel Nga and the Stone Crab, but Wars of Reaving doesn't explicitly state that, and there are a couple of other WarShips (the Fuchida and the Nikolai Tesla) that aren't clearly affiliated between the Society, Bandit Case and Burrocks, so it's possible that there were other ships that weren't named.

Is it possible to confirm what the three Burrock WarShips at Priori were?

Wars of Reaving also states that the Burrock fleet survivors retreated from Priori via a pirate jump point - if it is possible to confirm what the three WarShips were, is it also possible to confirm which of them survived long enough to escape from the battle?

It's more interesting than optimal, and therefore better. O0 - Weirdo

Sure.

They're whatever your game wants them to be.
