It started well with Starwalker flying in from the sun but then it all went horribly wrong as the distance did not get down to close quarter combat, the range remained at 10km to 15km. Starwalker’s 150mm auto cannons tried to lay down the hurt but fighting at that range was barely hitting and even overheating did not appreciably change the damage.
The artillery fit Rifter had no such trouble and was now tearing away Starwalker’s armour to get to the pod. The armour repair was not keeping up and a last desperate measure was tried – to overheat the afterburner to close the distance.
It was useless and in all the excitement Starwalker forgot the basic lesson – try to slingshot (move away and then back towards) a kiter to get into range. Eventually the armour was ripped away and then the structure to destroy (http://r1fta.griefwatch.net/?p=details&kill=2720) the valiant but doomed armoured Rifter. It had been kited to death.
