Fort Knocks has been confirmed as the first Keepstar class citadel to be constructed. Its final fitting and test firing were completed last week. This footage, received by the Scope, shows the test firing of its doomsday weapon, confirming that the citadel is indeed fully armed and operational. Located in the wormhole system of J115405, Fort Knocks is accompanied by Fortizar and Astrahus citadels, making this a truly remarkable accomplishment by its builders, Hard Knocks Citizens. In the north, the conflict continues, and while the Imperium coalition has lost all its sovereignty, it is still fighting on, mounting attacks from its current base in the low sec system of Saranen, against occupying MBC forces. To counter these guerilla tactics, the MBC has placed a Fortizar class citadel in Saranen, provokingly named ‘the Spinmaster’. Its construction is clearly intended as a statement of power and dominance in the region. Large fights have been taking place in Saranen with both sides slugging it out. In one of the larger engagements, the recently introduced capital force auxiliaries played a vital role protecting a vulnerable MBC Titan. While the Titan managed to survive, the Imperium inflicted heavy losses to its supporting forces. The MBC continues to maintain its siege, and has so far denied the Imperium any opportunity to regain a foothold in its former regions. The Force auxiliaries are the latest addition to capital ship warfare and have already been integrated into almost all large fleet operations. Continued rumors suggest that the Serpentis Corporation will introduce their own, enhanced capital ship designs soon, after their intentions came to light in a rogue broadcast made during the Amarr championships. Unconfirmed reports suggest that they will be making carriers, dreadnoughts and even Titans available to local capsuleers. This is Lina Ambre, reporting for the Scope.
