The management made a very prompt request through evemail. The fleet was formed within 4 days.

Orders of Battle

A fleet of about 130 ships (mostly cruisers and battlecruisers ) lead by Korr'Tanas and Gareth Correlian.

Very few (less than 20) pilots inside J151538 attempted to minimize losses by using nullifed Strategic_Cruisers and starbursted Orcas.

Battle and the Lack of it

Aftermath

Most of IVY and associate assets are evacuated from the system promptly following the battle. The evacuation started before DT of Feb 17.

Interesting Facts

The only IVY losses for the entire operation are from friendly fire. And the one of fortunate (or unfortunate) unista got a special title for it.

At the afternoon of Feb 16, all of the current directors were online in same fleet albeit not in same system. All of the current management were part of the fleet at some point.
