The two Y Wings and the X Wing fire their torpedoes at the Achilles. As the missiles thunder towards the warship it turns towards the incoming torpedoes and snap fires all anti aircraft batteries at the three threats. Anti aircraft rounds rain upon the missiles hitting two of them but only destroying one.
The remaining torpedoes hit Achilles damaging her engine and breaching her hull. The ship’s hull is torn open and pressure is lost as part of the crew are killed by the loss of atmosphere (crew Rep is reduced by 1). As the engine starts to fail, the her speed slows as she loses momentum (reduce speed by 1 to 0). Klaxons ring out, calling for all repair crews to the engine bays. The hull won’t be able to be fixed until the ship is out of combat but the crew can fix the engines.
The Formidable releases two long range torpedoes towards the Achilles, hoping to finish off the stricken ship.
The unconscious pilot of the X Wing regains consciousness.
[Activation: Star Navy 3, Hishin 2 – Hishin move first]
The two independent X Wings accelerate to 5 cycles and head straight towards Achilles.
Formidable increases its velocity to 2 cycles and moves straight towards the Star Navy Fleet.
The previously unconscious pilot accelerates to 5 cycles and moves directly forward away from the fleet and its anti aircraft batteries.
The Corvette Scipion accelerates to 2.5 cycles and continues on its course towards the Star Navy.
The Y Wings deaccelerate to 2 cycles and maintain their attack approach on Achilles.
Formidable’s torpedoes thunder towards Achilles. Achilles’ Capitan shouts for evasive action but the damaged ship reacts too late. The anti aircraft batteries do not have time to fire and the missiles slam into the side of the stricken ship. The engine is hit once more and the effect of the explosion reverberate through out the cruiser and breech the hull once again. The ship explodes into a million pieces, killing the crew and ripping a massive gap in the defensive ring for Warspite.
Having fired its torpedo, the remaining X Wing deaccelerates to 2 cycles, moves forward 1 cycle, turns 1 aspect to port and moves 1 more cycle forward.
The gutsy pilot has moved into visual range (5 inches) of Old Sarge, the Addict and Hinton. They’ll now all dogfight.
