Drac Hunt 3 part 3

Ok, normally I wouldn't post this much on one event, but I had to figure out what was in the level 50 fleets (that there is no way I could ever kill).  That is an hour of my life I'll never get back.....

HP may be a little off on this as someone had foolishly dinged up a few boats and may have even taken out 1 or 2, but this should give you a pretty good idea of the fleets that are in a 50 and what the different platforms have for HP's.

Notice I call the big ugly ship here

is the Atlas, I've seen it called Nemesis in a few places on the forums, and I think I may have even called it that in the last post, but from what I can tell it is actually called Atlas.

Anyway, here are the general specs for a level 50 fleet in DH3:

armor:[2x DracMegaArmor, Alliance Armour 10, 3x Alliance Armour 9]

4x TorpPlatform

4x QuadPlatform
armor:[2x DracMegaArmor]

armor:[Alliance Armour 10, Alliance Armour 9]

armor:[3x Alliance Armour 10]

armor:[3x Alliance Armour 10]

2x SC
armor:[Alliance Armour 10, Alliance Armour 9]

3x MCX
armor:[3x Alliance Armour 10]

2x DreadX
armor:[3x Alliance Armour 10]

Drac Hunt 3 part 2

First, please don't post links to my blog in the BP forums.  The moderators just end up deleting them and it causes them more work and they have enough to do.  They've had to clean a lot of links up out of the "drac hunt 3 pre-raid discussion".  They've been nice and, so far at least, left posts that tell people to google drac hunt 3, which some still can't seem to do.

I do like the fact that over and over there were some quotes earlier in the week that everything on my blog was dead wrong.  Guess we'll  know for sure in a few days.

But for whoever said they'd bet $1000 bucks that I was mostly right on the forums when someone else said it was all BS (think that post got removed also), feel free to track me down and send part of that to me any time if you win :)

Remember these are all just educated guesses after some research on what things may be introduced each week.  This is by no means an official BP blog and all my personal speculation.

Anyway with all that out of the way....

My guess is that if the Arc Missiles are released this raid, and I see no reason they won't, is that they are actually base turrets, not ship weapons like many on the forums have been speculating (some on the forums, in a different thread, recently have been speculating they are turrets also and I'm guessing that is right, but then again I missed the name on the hull on a 50/50!).

As for the Mercury (not the Anaconda, hey like I said I could be wrong on the name and it looks like I was) it is a Large ship (Scorp size) and appears that it will have 6 weapon slots.  Not sure why I didn't bother putting that in the previous post, must have been too eager to get the post out!

Enjoy the upcoming Raid.

Drac Hunt 3

DH3, 6 days away:

What are the latest prizes you ask, here are my best guesses:

Top prize, another ship, oh wait you probably already guessed that.  It looks like a missile and anti sub, mid sized, hull this time around.  Not sure on the name, I've seen 2 possibilities, either Mercury or Anaconda.  I'm guessing Anaconda.

Options for Tier 1-3 prizes?

New Missiles:
Arc Missile 1-3

Future planned warheads to go with them (doubt this raid):
Arc Warhead 1-3

Tier 4?:
New base weapon, possibly named Javelin.  Looks to be some type of Rail Gun
