Hi there, Jim Bridger here. I’m a younger corp member, and my specialty is flying destroyers. My goal is to max every skill that can improve destroyer performance. Yeah, I’ve got a least a year to go before I’m even close.

Meanwhile, how do you salvage in a destroyer? Simple, mount a tractor beam. When you’ve got more salvage than will fit in the destroyer cargo, just bung it in a jet can and carry the jetcan on tow. When you’re done, just call Marlenus and ask for a BFB pickup. (BFB stands for Big Fuckin’ Bustard.)

So, my second ship kill ever. I’m salvaging loose ore that was floating around the belts in jetcans, have most of a jetcan full in tow. Marlenus in the BFB has not yet arrived.

This Iteron V shows up, flown by one Everecc. Danged if he didn’t lumber out of warp, take one look at me in my Thrasher bristling with guns, and open up on me with his single 75mm popgun.

By the time I stopped laughing, it was all over. Dig this killmail:

Hello and welcome! The intent of this blog is to introduce Ironfleet to curious parties, accumulate handy Eve Online links in one place for the convenience of Ironfleet members and the general public, and preserve for posterity the history of the corporation in anecdotal form. (Which is a fancy way of saying we’ll post the odd killmail, along with entertaining chatlogs and the choicest bits of smack.)

As of this writing Ironfleet is a few days more than eight months old.
