CM DrummerTheGunnerNate, LCM Newt, and the Challenge CMDRs have created an amazing comic about Father's Day on the Challenge! Here's a sneak preview, and you can download and read it on the Wiki in PDF. This was a truly kind and incredible gift, and a reminder of how we are all a family on the Challenge.
TIE Corps Exercise: Squadron (Re)Mobilization 4 has begun. Each squadron is tasked with completing a number of goals, from fiction- writing through singleplayer, PvE, and PvP games. Most goals require squadron members flying together, so group up when you can! The rewards at the end are unique to this competition - a chance for each squadron to change its craft and objective. This year, after a proposal from LC Honsou was accepted by Fleet Commander Rapier, a new TIE model is available: the TIE/ca "Punisher"! This craft is a heavy bomber with a wide array of heavy weaponry, an extremely strong hull, and a strong deflector shield generator. Its primary target is capital ships and heavily defended battlestations, both orbital and planetside. As they don't have hyperdrives, I expect our Arquintens cruisers to see a lot of activity, should any squadron achieve the ReMob goals to switch to these heavy bombers.
ISDII Challenge: On the Offensive has ended. COL Phalk Sturm took first place with a score of 200,262 and a new battle high score, and has earned an IS-GW. CPT Colo Delste took second with a score of 149,522 and a high score on mission #5, and has earned an IS-SW. GN Anahorn Dempsey is in third with 121,775, and has earned an IS-BW. COL Triji Boliv has also earned an IS-CW for scoring above 50,000. Congratulations to all who took part!
The Moving Day competition comes to a close on July 1st. Write fiction, create a custom battle storyline, draw a picture, or do anything else creative relating to the Challenge Battlegroup's new MC-40 - home of Eagle and Firebird squadrons. This is also a rare chance to impact the name of the ship itself, which we get to select - a name which will last forever!
Welcome LT Tiberius Duck, who joined Thunder Squadron and earned his promotion almost instantly. We shall watch your career with great interest. SL CapukkiOne has also earned their first Legions, and I expect to announce a promotion in my next report.
