The Rodian Landings


Rodia imperiled! Recovering after their defat at Ryloth, the separatist forces have taken over this verdant planet, thanks to the collaboration of local politicians sympathetic to their secession and the famine caused by the war. Concerned by such expansion, the Republic quickly redeploys its forces to contest the lost ground. Led by general Kenobi, a spearhead of venator cruisers and a formidable Mandator dreadnought launch an invasion of the rogue world.
Welcome to another BFG: Coruscant game. Today we have a planetary invasion, with the separatists defending their newly conquered world from the clutches of the Supreme Chancelor
The seppies have mistakenly deployed their ships on patrol, and the enemy fleet is quick to pounce on them, punishing a Providence carrier with an combined onslaught of turbolasers and bombers
A Munificent frigate is also destroyed by more enemy craft and the volleys of the Mandator
The two remaining CIS vessels open fire, and the heavy ion cannon smashes into the venators, blowing up the burning Providence in the way in
Buffeted by debris and ion fire, the cruiser braces for impact
The republic navy reacts inmediately, and moves around the asteroid field while keeping the troop transports safe on the flanks
All batteries zero in on the second providence, that is reduced to scrap under heavy fire
The Pride of the Core then has to weather two waves of droch boarding ships, that damage her weapons and even assault the bridge, killing the admiral and all his officers

Undaunted, the jedi fleet plows onwards, unleashing a veritable swarm of LAAT gunships
Clones and torpedoes slam into the massive Subjugator, taking out of the picture her weapons and leaving her crippled
The massive vessel still has claws however, and launches yet more boarding ships into the Mandator
But little can she do against the whole enemy fleet. The Pride opens up at point blank range, another wave of gunships finishes the job, causing so many damage that the gargantuan dreadnought explodes
Sadly the Mandator is also taken down in this titanic deflagration, since her lowered Ld value prevents her from bracing at the critical moment
Despite the loss of their flagship, the republican starships close in on their target, sweeping out the orbital defences and landing the invasion force
