General

This page provides an overview on all of the NPC Fleets launched by VEGA Mining.

There are currently 4 types of fleets launched by them:

Antimatter Cargo Fleets, which carry Antimatter to the Processing Complexes,

VEGA Cargo and VEGA Elite Fleets, which drop large amounts of resources as well as a chance at a Blueprint,

VEGA Mining Crafting Fleets, which drop fewer resources but crafting materials for VEGA Mining Hulls,

VEGA Mining Supply Run Fleets, which drop crafting materials for a specific VEGA Mining Hull, depending on the kind of supply run that is taking place.

Antimatter Cargo Fleets

Antimatter Base

An Antimatter Field

Antimatter Cargo Fleets are more advanced cargo fleets which only spawn from antimatter resource fields. These resource fields are located in only two regions on each planet, they can be identified by their purple coloration.

Antimatter fields come in 3 categories. [Tier 1 (15-20)], [Tier 2 (23-25)], and [Tier 3 (27-30)]. These resource fields are also capable of spawning Rebel Crafting Fleets, which are easier to fight but provide less Antimatter.

Antimatter fleets differ from normal cargo fleets in that they contain VEGA warships, which are much stronger compared to the rebel ships used in regular cargo fleets.

VEGA Cargo Fleets

Planet Spawn-0

Cargo Fleets spawning from a Planet

VEGA Cargo Fleets are seen on the sector map. They originally spawned 4 at a time from each planet after a set time window of 7.5 minutes, but they now launch 1 at a time together with other Crafting fleets from a planet after a short time window of 2-3 minutes. You can check how long until the next launch by clicking on a planet. They spawn at different times per solar system, usually in a cycle between the spawning of Iron Star Company Fleets.

VEGA Cargo Fleets spawn from every Processing Complex on a planet and will scramble to various wormholes.

Resource payout is split in the ratio 35% H3/35% Ore/30% AM.

VEGA Elite Fleets spawn from every Processing Complex on a planet and travel towards various wormholes. They also used to spawn 4 at a time from each planet after a set time window of 7.5 minutes, but now launch 1 at a time together with other crafting fleets as well as VEGA Cargo fleets after a short time window of 2-3 minutes.

VEGA Mining Supply Run Fleets

VEGA Mining also launches supply run fleets into the sector, 4 at a time every 7.5 minutes from a planet occasionally, which drop crafting materials for a particular VEGA Mining Hull. The type of hull it drops depends on the type of Supply Run being Conducted. All VEGA Mining Supply Run Fleets are Level 40, with the exception of the VEGA Raiders, which has a Level 25 variant that drops materials for the Destiny Cruiser.

Raider = Apocrypha Cruiser and Destiny Cruiser

Artillery = Scythe Destroyer

Battalion = Dread Battleship

VEGA Artillery 40

VEGA Artillery (Supply Run)

VEGA's Artillery fleet has 6 MKV Scythe Destroyers armed with Gladius Drivers, A MK V Apocrypha Cruiser armed with ECHO Rays and A spectral shield Protected MK V Ragnarok Carrier armed with Interceptor squadrons.

Strategies

The Strategy to kill the fleet is the same as the Rebel version. Run away and snipe away the ECHO Apoc, followed by the Carrier when it is far away enough that the destroyers cant protect it, then send a decoy to fly in a wide circle around the Scythes. Once their backs are turned, send the rest of your fleet in to blast them to scrap.

VEGA Battalion (supply Run)

VEGA Battalion (Supply Run)

The VEGA Battalion Supply Run fleet consists of 6 Dread Battleship MK Vs armed with Gladius Drivers, a Mk V Condor Frigate armed with HEX Missiles, and a Mk V Ragnarok Carrier protected by Spectral Shields and armed with interceptor squadrons.

Strategies

Like its rebel Counterpart, first send a fast battleship to kite the other battleships and the frigate, similar to the normal Crafting Material Fleets, then get the attention of the carrier and destroy it with the Cruisers. Alternatively, you can use a decoy and carrier if you want to reduce damage.

VEGA Hunter 40

VEGA Hunters (Supply Run)

The second-lowest level of the Hunter fleets, but still as deadly. Consists of 5 Mk V Gharial Cutters armed with Thermal beams, 2 Mk V Dread Battleships armed with Gladius Drivers and a Mk V Ragnarok Carrier armed with Fighter squadrons and protected by Spectral Shields.

The immediate presence of the Gharial Cutters immediately makes for a extremely tough problem because the insane speed makes them unkiteable by any means. Combined with the firepower from the dreads, this fleet is extremely difficult to defeat.

Strategies

This fleet can be done with Thermal Revs, but with quite a bit of damage, the easiest way is still the Dread Rag Combo, line the battleships in a line Northwest or northeast of the cutters, with a decoy to draw the cutters attention. Strafe the battleships back n decimate the Cutters as they get in range with the Dread's Weapons and Carrier's Squadrons. Next, send a battleship to kite the 2 Dreads. Once that is done, Send your carrier in to take out the enemy carrier, shielded by your battleship.

Trivia

  • VEGA Mining used to deploy older and less powerful ships some time ago. They later, designed and developed new and superior ships which are stronger than their predecessor at least by two fold.
  • VEGA Mining Fleets were then given more cargo capacity, carrying twice the amount of content than before. This was likely due to just hunting 40s in low amounts of cargo being very tedious to high level players just simply for research.
