A Terran Adventure (Part 24) - Blockade

Rate this Entry
With the Terran arms production facility operational, I decided it was time to invest in the next phase of my Xenon Containment Force in the recently discovered Terran Unknown Sectors.

After studying the specifications and prices of the USC and all the Commonwealth destroyers I decided to settle for four Argon Titans. While they are not the most powerful or fastest of ships they do offer a good balance of weapons/shielding and more importantly are cheap.

Remembering that one of my OTAS contacts mentioned that the corporation was selling their jump drives and other equipment to the local Argon Shipyard, I decided to put a call into the Argon Intelligence rep at the shipyard and asked him to register my intent to purchase with the local salesman on my behalf. Meanwhile I needed to do some fund raising...

Several station defence, assassination, and build missions later I had raised the funds for my four destroyers and set about purchasing them, equipping them at Light of Heart, and then arming them from the capital weapons stocks I had been accumulating and storing on my flagship Goner Aran "Spirit Sanctuary".

With my four destroyers fully armed and equipped I gave their captains orders to bracket the East gate in TUS3, while I instructed my Boreas wing to act as a stand off barrier force on the entry vector from the gate.

With the Blockade in position and my capital weapon stock virtually depleted, I decided it was time to invest in building the Boron Capital weapons - Ion Cannons and Ion Pulse Generators. As my plan for my second complex, located in the Unknown sector between Montalaar and New Income, was to set it up as a Commonwealth weapon production facility this was the perfect time to begin expanding production there.
