(PVP2-US) United States Navy After Action Reports
JLAM posted a topic in National newsPVP2 - Clan [uSN] - join us here! UNITED STATES NAVY CROWN HAVEN NAVAL STATION, NORTHERN BAHAMAS AFTER ACTION REPORT FROM: JLAM, Ensign, USN SUBJECT: ANTI-PIRACY PATROL01Feb16 1) Lt. McPrankster, En. JLAM, En. Joshua Barney, and En. Ahlos Dahel, organized an anti-piracy operation approximately three hours prior to this posting. It involved approximately 9 USN particpants (both officer and enlisted) as well as over a dozen citizens of the USA. People were ready to fight the pirates, but lacked leadership and direction- they quickly answered the call to battle once a unified force was acting. 2) The pirates operated out of Cabo Canaveral, and used a Basic Cutter as a scout vessel. The cutter would spot targets, and engage them. The main pirate task force (two Cerberus, one Renommee, one Snow) would then launch from inside the port and attack the target. They appeared to primarily target NPC trade vessels, but also attacked vulnerable player trade vessels. This pirate group had been operating up and down the Florida coast for most of the day, and were spotted well beforehand near the Bahamas. After the operations, they were seen sailing southeast towards or near Walker's Cay in the northern Bahamas. 3) The first engagement was primarily built up of Cutters, both player and AI. While we held a numerical and battle rating advantage, we could not catch up to the pirate frigates. After reinforcements arrived, two Cerberus, Renommee, and some other ships, we determined the best plan of action was to disengage from the battle, and allow another battle to commence with the larger allied ships. 4) The second engagement consisted of the major allied ships and cutters against a Pirate Renommee and Cerberus, while myself and a USMC vessel chased down the lone Pirate Cerberus and initiated a third engagement. Sometime shortly thereafter, the pirates escaped from the second engagement, but we were able to lock down the Cerberus in the fight. 5) With time, more allied vessels joined the fight. Simultaneously, a fourth engagement began against the pirate Snow. The Snow was sunk, and after a long chase, the Cerberus was summarily destroyed. USA Losses: 0 Pirate Losses: 1 Cerberus, 1 Snow
