I was fortunate to be able to plan the spring op. This was a continuation of the November Op Where the Raven received Intel from our rescued hostage that the Cylons had occupied the nearby planet Zebulon.
A Raptor was dispatched to perform a recon mission and discovered that the Cylons had built a very large Raider manufacturing plant.
It was decided that the Raven Battle Group must take action and destroy the facility and take out as many Cylons along the way.
The Op was set to take place on Saturday the 2nd of April at 10:00pm but as always the Raven Battle Group is ready to take on the Cylons.
The op took place in the main chat room and for the next mission everyone is invited to attend.
We had a substantial turn out for this event. You are more than welcome to read what took place during the latest Op and I look forward to seeing more of our members for the next mission.
