Welpfleet: Alphafleet's Suicidal Eurotime Cousin

In Eurotime, we find ourselves overmatched in supercapital power by a coalition of anti-coalition hypocrites. Several weeks ago Mister Vee began working on a suicide-based doctrine to burn down hostile supercaps, but it was shelved due to a lack of proactive scouting; without individual scouts hunting down soft targets such as belt-ratting Nyxes or following enemy supercap blobs, there was no point. The Battle for VFK has restored our scouting capabilities as a coalition, which means that we can now roll out Welpfleet.

Welpfleet is based on having more than a hundred neuting autocannon-fit Hurricanes sitting on a Titan. Scouts find amusing things for us to drop on, we cyno on top of the target, and then the Hurricanes face**** them to death. The survival of the welpfleet is completely optional, as the Hurricanes are designed to be cheap and disposable, as well as easy to import and mass-produce. Newbies unable to fly Hurricanes will fly Rifters with web and scrams to aid in tackling, and the group needs a small number of shield logistics ships along for the ride, perhaps 10-15 for every hundred Hurricanes.

This is an initiative we are introducing across the entire Cluster****. We will no longer sit idly by in Eurotime, but actively look to spread suffering and fear in the hearts of those who would oppress us.



The Welpfleet Hurricane does approximately 500 dps before drones or heat. Its autocannons track hostile logistics ships and ArmorHACs with ease, which means that unlike the PL Tempest gank fleets, a Welpfleet presents a threat to subcap fleets stupid enough to get in its way as well as supercaps. A Welpfleet of only 100 Hurricanes will neut a hostile supercap within two cycles. A 200-Hurricane Welpfleet will tear a lone Ragnarok or Leviathan to shreds in less than two minutes. Obviously, this fleet is not a counter to a supercap blob in tight formation, but it is a sword of Damocles to hold over the heads of our too-proud foes.

Fitting Notes:

It is not necessary to have T2 neuts, you can use cheap meta neuts. You will need to be able to use both dps drones and ECM drones. Train Electronic Warfare Drone Interfacing if you haven't yet.

Drones: 1 medium, 4 lights. ECM, DPS and Neut drones, FCs discretion as to which. Yes, Neut drones.

A ****load of Ammo: Spoiled by our obsession with 1400mm Artillery, many of you will be shocked by exactly how much ammo a face**** 'cane will spit out. You need a metric assload of ammo, several thousand rounds of EMP, Fusion, Phased Plasma and Barrage. Do not just bring one type of ammo, as we will be swapping damage depending on prey.

Extra Mods: Nanofiber II, Invuln II, Kinetic Hardener II, Warp Disruptor II. Depending on the FC's discretion, mods may be swapped to one of the above depending on the situation. Have these mods available and do what the FC tells you.

Extra Ships: Welpfleet is intended to die and be disposable. Hurricanes are cheap, have at least two fitted Welpfleet Hurricanes in your hangar with the situational mods/drones to tweak them based on FC preference. These fits will be used in Homeland Defense gangs as well.

How will a Welpfleet op work in practice?

Mister Vee will be running the first few Welpfleet ops, so you can expect them to begin around 16:00 EVE. He will broadcast for Welpfleet to form up in the system of his choice (VFK or YA0 most likely) and it will blob up on a Titan. Then you will boot up one of the following: World of Tanks, Terraria, HoN, LoL, Kerbal Space Program, whatever - some kind of game you can play in another window. A No Chatter Mumble channel will be available. You wait for orders and chill out with your buddies.

While you are chilling out, Vee and our scouts are out looking for a target to Jihad onto. The Scout who finds the target will get a 'Finder's Fee' of a share of the loot dropped from any hostile supercapital murdered during a Welpfleet op, usually an officer mod.

Important rule: Whenever you lose a ship in a Welpfleet op, you must type 'welp' in local before you get podded. Good luck.

Welpfleet and Homeland Defense

The Welpfleet has a secondary purpose beyond dropping hundreds of vengeance-hungry goons on our victims: it is the basis of our new Homeland Defense strategy. Homeland Defense gangs are often a scattered mix of bull**** ships, and get ripped apart accordingly. By contrast, Welpfleet Hurricanes with Scimitar support will murder just about any small gang stupid enough to get in their way, and if they somehow die horribly they're cheap to replace. This is a great gang composition for would-be FCs to try out.

Homeland Defense Fitting Tweak: Replace 1x LSE with Warp Disruptor II, use 1x Med 4x Light ECM Drones

In a Homeland Defense gang, each Hurricane pilot sics his ECM drones on whatever target is nearest to him in the alphabet. This sows chaos among the foe while you're busy pumping EMP M into their face.

T2 Medium Autocannons -> T2 Large Autocannons

After you can use T2 Medium Autocannons for a Welpfleet Hurricane, spend the extra half-hour to train T2 Large Autos. As we discovered in VFK, being able to swap an Alphafleet to 800mm ACs turns our fleets into a whirlwind of short-range ****, which is particularly useful when scraping the bloodied remains of Tengufleets out of Our Region.

WELPFLEET:

Hurricanes > Shield Logis/Rifters/Broadswords/Onyxes/Dictors

At the FC's discretion, Command Ships, Huginns and Lachesis may be called for - this will only be for hunting Tengus and AHAC Gangs, and will not be a normal part of the doctrine.

See Welpfleet is a clever ruse to deceive our enemies. Really we plan on using 200 Hurricanes for Incursion sites. Especially the Mothership site. It would let us teach our newbees the intricacies of target calling and how to broadcast for shields in a timely manner.

Even Mittens crossposts TWR threads to the Goonswarm thread in Kugu. Try harder.

Protip: Now is the time to export hurricanes directly to Goonswarm Federation.

For a small fee, I will gladly haul your hurricanes to Goonswarm Federation station systems and put them on the market for you.

Teaching them to broadcast for shields takes a minute. It takes them at least a month to learn the logis won't be mad at them for broadcasting. :shobon:
