The line between disorder and order lies in logistics.’ – Sun Tzu
‘Leaders win through logistics. Vision, sure. Strategy, yes. But when you go to war, you need to have both toilet paper and bullets at the right place at the right time. In other words, you must win through superior logistics.’ – Tom Peters
The leaders of DARKNESS. corporation Fraid Tech Industries may have vision. They may have strategy. But they were definitely missing some toilet paper yesterday when Requiem Eternal pilot McLelch paid a visit to their POS in ZXJ-71, Querious, flying a Manticore stealth bomber. McLelch likely found the POS with its shields down due to an overdue POS fuel delivery.
And there stood the X-Large Ship Maintenance Array: beautiful, majestic, and completely unprotected. It isn’t a stretch of the imagination to say that McLelch’s eyes probably popped out of her head. Once she had put them back in, she proceeded to lock the XLSMA and take it down. The prospect of a billion ISK killmail at the minimum, and the applause from corpmates, is an attractive proposition to anyone. Who could resist an opportunity like this?
The XLSMA popped. There was no loot. Disappointment. No doubt it was empty. Such is life, such is EVE. Opening the killmail must have been almost an afterthought for McLelch.
As it turns out, McLelch had unknowingly destroyed a titan. Such is EVE! One never knows what one is going to find in that box of chocolates.
Congratulations to McLelch on her outstanding killmail.
This is the second capital structure loss for Fraid Tech Industries in 2 months. Fraid also lost a SCSAA on July 4, in the same system.
Fortunately there were no Titans inside that time.
Both McLelch and Vida Nyksse, CEO of Fraid Tech, were unavailable for comment at time of publishing.
