ZendikaroftheWest (How did the 2 cruisers become 5 cruisers?) *The frigates fire their big stealth missiles. The point defense grid is working at maximum capacity but cant hold of all missiles. The first frigates come into position. knowing they are out gunned and outclassed, the Cruiser aim their heavy weaponry to the enemy, while destroyers try to flank and frigates accelerate to break into enemy lines while firing railguns.
The ships dont have any sort of shielding, but heavy armor and cannons. knowing this, they have to go all in and concentrate their fire, while not holding anything back.
the fighters are a hard target, but the defensive grid established by the PD of the frigates being coordinated near perfection can stop nearly all. The outpost at the top, mistaken for the bridge, gets destroyed, crippling the HDC firestorms sensor equipment and by this takes her out of fight for an unknow duration. Seeing this, the other cruiser sends a distress call to all HDC forces that might listen, but even they themselves doubt anyone would come
The Caloris armor of the bigger ships is able to hold of beam fire and other heat based attacks quite well, but the smaller destroyers get some critical hits, one loses his engines, another one is completely destroyed
The rockets flight patterns seem to cause quite some confusion for the AI controlling the PD. The weird form of flight lets it think it sees some kind of fighter and so only heavier PD starts firing. When an officer noticed the mistake, he changes some AI settings, causing some missiles to be overseen. the missiles hit hard and cause the Caloris to break up at some points and opening weak spots.
The destroyers closing up is a thread to the bigger ships, so the frigates try to snipe them with railguns while the first salvo of stealth rockets is sent. Those rockets are quite new, and nearly invisible to radar or heat sensors, especially while near ships. They time the railguns precisely so one can put down the shield of a destroyer, and the other shoots right through the middle. They use a special railgun ammunition, that splits into multiple shots mid flight to do maximum damage and maximum penetration, but to use this kind, the first have to shoot out the shells with explosive charge. They use these to aim for the first row of attacking enemies.
The only cruiser in battle condition tries to move in front of the HDC firestorm stays in the back, shooting with cannons while giving direction to launch missiles via Morse code and blinking lights to the HDC firestorm The cannons are heavy and rotate slowly. The shoot quite inaccurate but with a great velocity. It aims at th enemy cruisers and tries to keep them at distance
The destroyers swarm out to the side, ready to return to flank the enemy destroyers or to counterattack.*
