Director of Intel, XWA Alliance

 

This report is about a recent attack by our archenemy, Duke (Matt Rutherford of P3X-8472, coords: 15:16:20) on the Director of Intelligence, Darth Sceltor.  Overall, the forces of Sceltor prevailed against Duke's, with heavy losses for both sides.  The following is a chart detailing the losses of Duke.

*This number includes the 100 Ghosts which did not participate in the attack.

Forces lost by me total 510, including PDS.  As you will see below, this was much less than the number of ships lost by Duke.  The losses hurt, but they will be replaced, and seeing Duke hurt like this was well worth it.

So, according to these numbers compiled here, the remaining forces in Duke's fleet total 572 ships.  The total number of ships sent total 1790.  Do the math and you see that Duke lost 1318 ships.  We all know of Duke's high asteroid count and his ability to rebuild fast.  This means these losses will only hurt him for a short while, so all this attack basically tells us is that he doesn't plan very well.  I intercepted 1 Unit Scan prior to the attack.  This could mean many things, but when you take into account the composition of the fleet here, he intended to raid my asteroids, as opposed to a military strike meant to intimidate.  He succeeded n taking a number of my asteroids, 25 to be exact, though that cost him dearly.  I conclude that this raid was a failure, and Duke will fall, and fall hard eventually.
