Well, that was interesting.
I’m in my Mammoth coming back from Jita carrying the following:
140 x Vespa II
140 x Scorch S
43 x Shrapnel Bomb
80 x Sisters Deep Space Scanner Probe
So probably around 150m worth of stuff in Jita prices. Nothing worth ganking me over, seeing it’ll take 2+ Tornadoes.
I jump into Bei and notice two Tornadoes on the gate. Hmm, this’ll be interesting, if they’re working together. Naturally, I’m scanned… then this happens:

I take hits from one of the Tornadoes, which drops my shields to about a third. The second Tornado lights up and I hear the sound of artillery, and I end up in about 25% armor. The next two seconds take longer than they should. CONCORD warps in, and POP POP go the Tornadoes… and I warp off toward the Hek gate.
I remember at this point hitting my screenshot button for the blog, but it appears it didn’t take. 😦
During warp I find the nearest station with repair services, and once I drop out of warp I head off to fix the damage my armor has sustained. A 40,000 isk repair bill later, I realise there might be valuable loot on the Tornado wrecks and head back to the gate to investigate, but someone has already beaten me to it… salvage and all.
All in all I’d judge my fit a success. I might have been able to take a third Tornado in a pinch… but I wouldn’t want to bet on it. I’m going to learn Thermodynamics so I can overheat my modules in a similar situation next time. T2 shield extenders might be nice, too!
