Greetings pilots of the Hammer!
Welcome to this weeks Hammer Ship Report, I trust everyone is settling down into enjoying their summers despite any heat waves or cold snaps if you're on the other half of the planet!
This past week has seen several events, firstly we've completed two Battles in Imperial Storm and I want to thank everyone who took part, we saw some phenomenal participation levels across the fleet.
We're also closing out on the final medals from the June Squadron Evaluations so you should start to see these dropping into your inboxes imminently.
Numbers remain relatively stable, so lets see what we can do to recruit a few more members of the Empire!
Trivia for the Hammered - Season Two
As with Season One each week will see 4 questions released via email with the quickest pilot to answer getting 3 points, second quickest 2 points and all the pilots with a correct answer 1 point.
We tally up at the end of the week with the weekly winner receiving a IS-BR.
After 8 rounds we tally up for our Season Two winner who will receive a IS-SR, the runner up a IS-BR.

Imperial Storm III
Imperial Storm is a turn based war-game that pits all three Battlegroups against the others over a map of the planetary systems that we are currently near.
The teams will do battle against each other for control of the map, earning points for holding systems and attempting to deprive the enemy of their own.
Battles are fought using a scoring system that takes into account all Legion (LoC/LoS) earned during the combat window, alongside the average scores of a teams top 4 SP pilots.
Full rules can be found here: http://www.isdhammer.org/ImperialStorm_III.pdf
The winning Team at the end of the 30 turn game will see all participating pilots earn a TIE Corps Meritorious Unit Award (MUA).
The top 6 scorers in each of the 3 streams (top LoC count, top LoS count, top HS% SP count) will earn Iron Stars as below:
IS-CWs will be awarded to pilots for each set of 1000 Legions earned over the course of the competition during battles their fleet is involved in.
IS-CWs will also be awarded to pilots that complete all or all but one of the SP missions assigned to their fleet in battles over the course of the competition.
