General

VEGA Security frequently appears in the sectors as well. 3 types of fleets belong to VEGA Security:

VEGA Security Overwatch Fleets: Aggressive detachments of VSec ships, will attack any player fleet +/-5 levels, and drop resources as well as a chance at blueprints.

VEGA Security Crafting Fleets: Fleets of VSec ships launched from Processing Complexes, they carry fewer resources than the Overwatch fleets but carry crafting materials for VSec hulls.

VEGA Security Supply Run Fleets: A special detachment of VSec ships launched from Processing Complexes only during Supply Runs. They can drop materials for a particular VEGA Security Hull. The availability of the crafting materials depends on what kind of supply run is occurring at that time.

VEGA Security Preview

VEGA Security Overwatch Fleets, abbreviated commonly as VSec Overwatch Fleets, or simply VSec, were new fleets introduced into the game on December 1st, 2014, currently run by Vorzer of the VEGA Federation. Unlike regular fleets, all VSec Overwatch fleets of level 30 or above may attack fleets +5 or -5 of themselves that get too close.

These fleets are more of a militaristic version of regular VEGA Cargo Fleets, being harder to kill, as most ships are equipped with high-level Rear Thrusters to make kiting very difficult, or simply have a high base speed (not true for the Eagle Frigate) which is only going to work by using the Run and Gun tactic with Rapture Cruisers equipped with Rear Thrusters V and Gladius Drivers or AP Drivers. The ships that make up all VSec Fleets are as follows; Corinthian Cruisers, Eagle Frigates, Lance Destroyers and Zeal Battleships. All of them are powerful, equipped with new VSec blueprints, which are the SICO Missile, ECHO Ray and AP Driver. With the exception of the SICO Missile, each weapon has a special ability not found in any other weapon. 

Originally, the VSec Overwatch fleets were launched in irregular intervals from time to time for a brief moment about once a week, lasting around 2 days on average, although they lasted 4 days during the original Riots. They were set to occur twice a month by themselves in shorter bursts in two weekends, and a third time in slightly higher spawn rates during Riot. They can also occur during special events, though sometimes specialized event fleets are used for those instead.

Currently, VSec Overwatch fleets are active during the "VSec Active" sector activity, which occurs once every 3 hrs with a 1-hour duration. Level 27 fleets spawn in planet while level 30+ fleets spawn from wormholes.

It is important to note that the fleet layout changes for Each "Tier". V-Sec Fleets are seperated into 4 tiers, Level 27 fleets, Level 30-35 fleets, Level 37-45 fleets, and level 50-55 fleets.

VSec Overwatch fleets also contain cargo. When defeated, any excess cargo that does not fit in your fleets hold will "Drift" on the map for a certain amount of time, allowing you (or other players) to collect it with another fleet. Recently the drift timer was changed from 120 seconds to 20 seconds. Due to player feedback (and a bit of outrage) the timer was increased again to 45 seconds.

Unlike the other VSec fleets, this ones do not try to engage player fleets on their level range.

The Lances and Zeals are the main threat here. Try to flank them. Compared to the later ones, they do pitiful damage to Tier 2+ hulls.

Thicker armor and stronger weapons means that most T1 autofleets will be heavily damaged at best.

A bunch of Venoms armed with Hydras or SICOs will do short work of them.

(* Has an extra weapon and/or boosted projectile speed)

The first difficult Vsec fleet, the primary threat is the destroyers.

A decoy to distract them, like a Harrier Frigate with Fusion Thrusters III, is advised to prevent heavy damage.

The armor and damage output of this fleet has ramped up significantly, kiting and flanking the destroyers is a must, as even revelations can go down quickly to them.

Zeal Battleship - AP Driver x6 {Deflector Shield}

One of the most difficult fleets in the game among Vsec. The cruisers have very thick armor and potent weaponry. The frigates are not particularly dangerous, however the real threat is the zeals. Kiting tactics may be necessary to achieve victory. A carrier is recommended, and a stronger decoy too, like an upgraded Revelation, or an Apocrypha.

Eagle Frigate - ECHO Ray x3 {Shockwave Shield}

Zeal Battleship - AP Driver x6 {Deflector Shield}

The most powerful Vsec fleet to date. Every single ship in this fleet is dangerous, even the frigates now. The zeals have the firepower to annihilate even heavily armored ships. So avoiding damage is an absolute must in order to successfully defeat this fleet. Squadrons will be a huge help here, decoys too.

VEGA Security Supply Run Fleets

VEGA Security also launches Supply Run Fleets into the sector, and these fleets contain crafting materials for a particular VEGA Security Hull. The availability of the Crafting materials for each class depends on the kind of supply run that is being run.

Raiders = Corinthian Cruiser

Artillery = Lance Destroyer

Battalion = Zeal Battleship

Hunters = Komodo Cutter

Scouts = Eagle Frigate

STRATEGY (53)

Like the other artillery fleets, run away and snipe away the ECHO Cor, 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 Lances. Once their backs are turned, send the rest of your fleet in to blast them to scrap. This fleet can even be done with Cruisers if careful.

Strategies

STRATEGY (53)

Like its other Counterparts, 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.

Strategies

STRATEGY (53)

As with the VEGA Hunters, 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

  • VSec Overwatch fleets are a permanent addition as of 2015. They will spawn in periodically.
  • Contrary to some peoples' beliefs, low and even medium level VSec fleets can be easily autoed once a player has access to T2/T3 hulls.
