Vard is hot

And it was hot. Indeed. The battle took nearly 19 minutes with ships warping in and out, standdowns at 100 km and small scouting ships buzzing around. 19 Minutes where we to hold the Republics Complex to be freed from the Amarr capturing it. Tens of military wrecks from the regular Minmatar Navy floated in space, debris and hot gases spewing out of compartments where atmosphere was still maintained by emergency controls.

The captains from other ships reported their status and in the background i could sometimes hear a claxon sounding on and off when a new ingetrity breach in the hull was reported. It has been a close battle.

But we have won and the Vard system is once again decontested. That was worth the cost.
