MTV Campaign - Unkulunkulu vs. Luches Utopia

#11
Scenario 12 - That Unsettled Feeling

Having discovered that Luches Utopia was using relatively unstable wormholes for their attack,
Unkulunkulu is now scouting and exploring relatively inhospitable corners of space looking for LU activity.
They discover LU elements in a system where the star is undergoing extreme perturbations and contractions.
The resulting gravity waves are leaving both sides discombobulated, but the Pearl Divers gamely move to attack
the surprised LU forces.

 Spirit Rider 2 (Commissar) (Plt 8, Gnr 8)
 Epping Prime 2 (Plt 7, Gnr 6, Gnr A 6, Gnr B 4, Gnr C 6)
 Salamander II 2 (Plt 7, Gnr 8, Good Shot 1, Gnr A 3)
 Devastator 2 (Plt 6, Gnr 7, Aggressive Pilot 1, Gnr A 3, Gnr B 3)
 Devastator 3 (Plt 8, Gnr 8. Marksman 1, Gnr A 8, Gnr B 6)
 Kosmos 2 (Plt 4, Gnr 4)


i) Inflict more damage than you take.
ii) Prevent enemy from reporting your activities.
iii) Report back to command.

Terrain
Gravity Waves
i) Each turn, after shooting, each ship and torpedo drifts D4 hexes in a random direction (1D6 faces clockwise from current facing)
ii) Each turn, each ship and torpedo also turns clockwise 4DFate hex faces. (A Fate die is D3-2: -1, 0, 1 evenly distributed)
iii) Ships that collide each take 3D6 High damage and the ship that takes more damage is moved to a random adjacent hex.
iv) Ships and torpedos targeting them that drift into the same hex are resolved immediately - no dodge, no point defence.
v) Debris fields are scattered before they can form.
 
The fight takes longer than usual to unfold.
It's extremely difficult to get a missile lock when being buffeted by gravity waves, and decoys prove quite effective.
Dodge rolls for torpedoes are also unusually poor, but enough pilots have luck that most torpedoes are avoided.
The Epping Prime's PDS also proves highly effective.
In the end, LU forces run out of minigun ammo before the battle is over allowing a small number of UA survivors to hold the field.
UA achieves all objectives while LU achieves some.

Yeah- looks like it should be Target SR ≤ 10 (Iceberg has the same quad mount).

Love the scenario objectives, terrain, & as was pointed out the MTV experience rules. Poor Luches.
