[blockquote]The success or failure of a fleet operation more often than not depends on reliable and timely intelligence. What is the opposing fleet's location, strength, makeup? These are all things the Fleet Commander needs to know in order to make proper decisions or to lay proper traps.
Our goal in PVP-COVOPS is to provide you with the basic skills and confidence needed to fly as a covert ops scout for a fleet. The class will meet in Berta at the start and proceed into nullsec with the entirety of the class practicals occuring in nullsec. The class will be heavy on practical demonstrations and work, and if you screw up, there is a real possibility of you losing your ship. There will be a few staged exercises but we may also be heading out into deeper reaches of nullsec and at the end of class, you will be offered the opportunity to test yourself and your skills with an exercise wherein you will likely have to evade multiple hostile forces and retrieve a few items. This is a real trial-by-fire, folks, so don't sign up unless you're ready to dive in the deep end and start swimming.
This class is geared towards the newer covops pilot. As such the class will be tailored to the younger covops pilots but would be still be a good review for the old hands as well.
The core topics this class will be covering are:
* Ship Fitting and Electronic Warfare
* Probing and Directional Scanner
* Proper Recon formatting and reporting (yep, it's showing up here too)
* Gatecamp evasion tricks
* Developing a warp in for tacklers
*Course Code: COVOPS-20110219
* Time and Duration
* Class: Feb 19 @1800 (Approx 5 hours, allow, 6)
Please try to arrive well before the class is due to start - instructors cannot afford to wait for you.
