On May 15 at 00:25 EVE time in the Lonetrek system of Taisy, a Leviathan belonging to Graham Jackson was destroyed by a joint black ops/capital force consisting of Project.Mayhem. And Snuffed Out members.
According to Project.Mayhem. FC Tau AD, the titan’s corporation had been kicked a week prior to the kill due to inactivity. After skirmishing with Circle-of-Two in Nalvula, a pilot noted in local chat that, in 30 seconds, there would be a titan on station. Disbelieving but not willing to give up a potential titan kill, heavy interdictors were sent out. They caught the Leviathan arriving at the 100km warpin before heading to and through the Taisy gate. Project.Mayhem. heavy interdictors followed immediately after. Once tackled, cynos were lit, and available capital forces were jumped in while black ops jumped to a covert cyno.
Around this time, Tau AD contacted allied Snuffed Out, who pinged for black ops to join Tau’s fleet and jump to the cyno. The Titan melted, as noted by a Snuffed Out member, “like cheese under a blowdryer,” as it had no tank fit save for rigs. Once dead, the involved alliances jumped to cynos back home, docking with greener killboards than they departed with.
TMC would like to thank Hy Wanto Destroyer of Snuffed Out and Tau AD of Project.Mayhem. for their contributions to this article.
