Sentry Drones


Sentry Drones are cool, since I pride myself on being a decent drone pilot, am a bit embarrassed to say that I never did deploy these little monsters until only recently. There was a deep-space mission that had some pretty meaty battle cruisers protecting a complex that my agent wanted me to investigate and 'deal' with extreme prejudice.

I opted for bouncers as my electronic watchdogs and they had an optimal range of 40km and a fall-off of 35km; not bad but with better skills am sure I could increase this further. I had my target coordinates and slung the big old Dominix into warp, drone bay rattling with 40-odd drones and some shiny bouncer-class sentry drones.

The coordinates were super accurate: but I opted to land 100km from the entry point as I wanted to deploy the sentry drones and see them at work. Arriving at the site; I quickly saw that the target area was surrounded by frigate, cruiser and battle cruiser-class ships from the Angel Cartel. As per instructions, I was going to investigate with extreme prejudice and scanned the habitat modules. The Angels did not take too kindly to this and came at me - just as I wanted to. As soon as I had their attention, I deployed the sentry drones. Like aggressive watch dogs - they leapt to action - re-targeting the advancing enemy fighters when they were in range......and then dismantling them in a most satisfactory fashion. I found that the battle cruisers were the easiest to go down then the cruisers and then the frigates. Obviously, the smaller the craft the harder they would be to hit - even by the sentry drones.

No matter; most of the enemy ships were destroyed by the sentry drones before the little frigates got too close. When the frigates proved too difficult to hit, I withdrew my sentry drones and re-deployed my faster warrior II light drones. Combined with a webber, the angel frigates were chewed up nice and quick.
