Fenrirs and Nomads have an interesting distinction: they are the fastest, most agile freighter and jump freighter, respectively. A typical Obelisk pilot with no particular bonuses aligns for warp in 43 seconds. But a Nomad can be made to align in half that. All you need is:
- a Loki link ship with a pilot with a Skirmish Warfare Mindlink;
- a full set of Low Grade Nomad implants; and,
- a Rogue Evasive Maneuvering EM-705 implant.
And if you have someone who can web your heavy ship down in the midst of warping off the gate -- say, the very same Loki CS that's providing the links -- you can warp off even quicker. It's quite an efficient way to move a large quantity of expensive goods around. It's not completely immune to suicide ganking, but it's probably about as close as it gets.
Something interesting happens if you have low enough standing with -- say -- the Amarr Empire. When you jump into an Amarr system, you'll get a warning that you're considered a criminal by that faction. Faction navy ships will show up, and their first action will be to web your ship. If you're already aligned or close to aligned, then this webbing of your ship actually helps you. It provides the same bonus that your Loki webs would have provided you. If you stick around, the faction navy ships will scram you, but if you're already in the process of warping, they'll unintentionally speed you along.
It turns out this Fenrir pilot was very recently in the Minmatar Faction War. That made him an enemy of the Amarr Empire. Which means he was almost certainly drawing this sort of faction navy attention at every gate he jumped his Fenrir through. I'm pretty familiar with this area from my own time in the Amarr faction war. Mehatoor is where a lot of Amarr FW pilots hang out. And they probably saw this Fenrir pilot, drawing his warning and being sped into warp by the Amarr Imperial Navy. What arrogance! What hubris!
And one of them probably figured that was unfair. So he undocked in an Ibis.
And he pointed the freighter just long enough for the Amarr Imperial Navy to go from webbing that Fenrir... to scramming that Fenrir.
Hee. I'm not saying that's how this went down. The fact that the Ibis is recorded as getting the final blow means that there's a piece to this puzzle that I'm missing. If you know more details about this kill, please fill them in in comments! But it was probably pretty close to that... sort of an assisted suicide.
