Yesterday saw the completion of Mistakes Were Made, a Diamondback Explorer kitted out to be a search and rescue ship.
Now The Avenging Hammers have two S&R ships at their disposal. Here’s her bio:
Space is hard. Sometimes you need help. Maybe your forgot to equip a fuel scoop. Or maybe you were pulled out of supercruise and had your drives taken out. Whatever happened, you’re not alone in the black. There’s help just around the corner.
Mistakes Were Made is the second vessel (alongside Hammer Mercy) commissioned for The Avenging Hammers – 113th Spaceflight Wing whose sole purpose is search and rescue. Any pilot, regardless of affiliation or allegiance, can call on her to lend a hand.
Mistakes Were Made was built as a multi-purpose S&R vehicle equipped with both Fuel and Repair Limpet Controllers. With a large fuel scoop and room for 16 limpets, she has the range to go anywhere and the capacity to services multiple ships before needing to return and replenish.
Fitting her out cost a good bit but it’s nice knowing I can pick her up and head out to help quickly.
After that I was pretty much just set on working some missions to make back the loss when Jinawee, popped into the Hammer Discord. She’s a streamer too! I say “too” like it hasn’t been 3-4 months since I’ve streamed….I need to get on that…it’s a long story…
ANYWHO, she recently picked up an Oculus Rift as was testing out streaming while wearing it. I switched into Untold Fortune and we went a hunting. Joined by our glorious, handsome, and virile Wing Commander Valthonis, we racked up a bunch of kills and went to turn in. I netted close to 700K in what probably was less than half an hour of flying. After that, the Commander bowed out and I flew escort for Jinawee while she switched into her Type-6 and went mining. I’ve never mined and I’ve never really even seen mining done. It was quiet at the belt cluster she dropped into, which is good, cause I was able to check out the process and learn a good bit. I’m going to have to give it a try at some point!
If I started mining as a career in Elite, what should I name the company?
