Oddball Fleet: Exequrors

This was written by Phyridean, a fellow Aideron pilot. I wasn't able to join this fleet, but the battle report is fun and I wanted to share.  This took place last week.

The fighting Exeq is fit as follows:

[Exequror, Sudden Explosions]
Capacitor Power Relay II
Damage Control II
Energized Adaptive Nano Membrane II
800mm Reinforced Rolled Tungsten Plates I
Drone Damage Amplifier II
Drone Damage Amplifier II

Sensor Booster II
Experimental 10MN Microwarpdrive I
Faint Epsilon Warp Scrambler I
Fleeting Propulsion Inhibitor I

Medium Remote Armor Repairer II
Medium Remote Armor Repairer II
Medium Remote Armor Repairer II

Medium Remote Repair Augmentor I
Medium Anti-Explosive Pump I
Medium Capacitor Control Circuit I

Sprinkle with Drones to taste.
First, we helped some guys bash an ihub. Good times. Then we moved on to the main event.

We had five Execs, three Atrons in various tackle fits. The execs were 4x sudden restoration with combat drones, 1x Sudden Explosions (what I'm calling your fit above--it's good for an FC).

We headed first to Tama, with KnotHeather providing +1 scouting. On jumping into tama, we were presented with a neutral vexor and omen on the gate. Since we had the reps, we engaged the Vexor. The plethora of webs helped immensely in this regard, and he went down. The Omen got away.

At this point, we needed to change up some drones, so we went back to Notoras, refit, and came back to Tama.

We warped to a medium plex gate, and were ready to go in when a cynabal landed on us. We ate him for breakfast, poor guy.

Just after the cynabal went down, two Vigilants warped onto us, one after the other. I called 'the vigilant' primary, so we had some split DPS initially, but we were able to take the first vigilant down. During this fight, we lost all three Atrons (Opeth, KnotHeather, and Manboy) and Yoyo's Exeq. We switched DPS to the second Vigilant, and as he was deep into structure, an Augoror landed and got reps on him. We were breaking the reps slowly when a Falcon uncloaked and jammed me, losing our last point on the Vigilant. He warped out in 7% structure.

We flew back to Yvangier to reship, came back to Tama, and captured a medium plex with 18 neutrals and 1 war target in local who seemed pretty butthurt about our reps.

After the capture, we set destination to Yvangier. Investigating some plexes in Heyd, one of our pilots noticed that one of the Dust Districts had lit up. Our Atrons warped in and KnotHeather got her first FW tackle ever, on a Cormorant. We killed the cormorant  while a WT Crow sat at 250km, regretting saying in local, "what are u going to do bro rep me to death?".

Yes. Yes we are. And we did.
