An Abaddon was running a mission in Curse region. Two people in local, just him and me. My covert ops buddy was a few jumps out and I was in a capsule after dropping off a hull in nearby Sendaya.
I docked up and jumped into my trusty Wolf as my covert ops sidekick dropped probes in the system. At this point I fully expected him to see the probes and warp to safety--he didn't, and within 40 seconds or so I had his position at 100%.
I dropped out of warp smack bang on top of the battleship and landed the scram, settling into a tight orbit I began taking a moderate amount of damage from a batch of tech one medium drones. Nothing to cause any panic but I decided to kill off the drones just in case any unexpected company arrived to help the stricken battleship.
The hulking beast of a ship did not want to die. All the time that I am shooting at it local seemed to be getting busier and I watch for backup, constantly blipping the D-scan, but nothing arrives. Eventually after what seemed like an eternity the ship finally explodes in a glorious display of burning hot metal.
I was not expecting it to be so shiny. I had actually warped away from the scene without first checking the loot. After looking at the killmail I immediately warped back to claim my booty. Next time I will check the wreck first I think. The tech one Heat Sinks did raise a chuckle.
I think it took around about ten maybe fifteen minutes or so to destroy the behemoth ship. But when you know that backup is likely on the way, time seems to grind to a halt. Incidentally, when I docked for repairs I noticed two or three corpmates of the Abaddon pilot show up in local in destroyers, a little too late for a rescue party.
