CAPTAIN: SIR SHILOH "IRISHBRONCO" KAVANAUGH
IMPERIAL RANK: KNIGHT
FEDERAL RANK: PETTY OFFICER
BASE OF OPERATIONS: CHELOMEY ORBITAL, CUBEO
IMPERIAL FLEET SQUADRON LEADER: ETERNAL KNIGHTS
SHIP MANUFACTURER: LAKON SPACEWAYS
MODEL: TYPE-9 HEAVY
SHIP ID: IB-008
SHIP DESIGNATION: ICV DOIREANN
SHIP ROLE: MINING
CURRENT LOCATION: FUTEN SPACEPORT, FUJIN
After some investigation, research and some trial, it can now be affirmed that mining is well under way and both profitable and satisfactorily efficient.
Some delays arise with the low jump range on the T-9H, and the lower speed while seeking the most lucrative systems for Painite mining. However, these delays can be justified in that the return more than makes up the difference where profits are concerned.
We have also expanded our fleet to a number of 10 total ships, adding a Fer-de-Lance and a much anticipated Anaconda late last night. Some preliminary trial flights were deemed necessary in order to test the new assets and their capabilities in the areas of combat, where they are more specifically rated for use and will primarily be engaged in service.
We will continue mining Painite as long as the endeavor remains profitable.
However, it is the pressing concern of the commander of this fleet that the allegiance of this Wing and Squadron must become more engaged in the security of Her Highness Aisling Duval's standing and rank among the Galactic "Bubble" Powers. These endeavors shall re-commence as soon as the fleet is deemed ready for support.
Sir Shiloh Kavanaugh, Imperial Knight in Perpetual Service to Her Highness, Aisling Duval.
