This was the first non-Sleeper op with the Chimera. We used the carrier to attack the large generators along with a Tornado Tur just happened to have lying around. For escort duty, we had the CEO's and my Proteus.
My Proteus is cov-ops fit so it fell to me to locate the large bubbles, warp to them, and position myself outside the bubble's perimeter so the rest of the fleet could warp to me. This is the fit I came up with for this sortie, though I now know it's not optimal for PvP. For that I've been told to swap the hardeners and pump rigs for EANMs, Mag Stabs and Trimarks thus lowering the resists but increasing the DPS - which is all important in a fight. I guess.

(NOTE: This fit takes a CPU implant to make it work. YMMV)
We expected our adversaries would intercept us at any point during our bubble hunting and busting sortie. We got away with it to take out the large bubbles. Still, it was a bit nerve wracking - but in a good way. There was even time for some New Eden humor.
New Eden is a much different place for this carebear these days. There is no CONCORD to back me up out here. It's up to me and my corp mates. If I'm to make my fortune out here, it's time to learn how to protect my assets from would be claim jumpers. But as the old saying goes, it takes one to know one. Hmmmm, now THERE'S an interesting thought. Not that I'd ever become a claim jumper, mind you. But that doesn't mean I can't learn from them. My sensors indicate change on the solar wind. Stay tuned.
