Describe any awesome strokes of luck, feats of skill, or crushing defeats of your CM career.
Earlier today, i was in a Whirlwind on a destroy Starbase mission. My wingmen were all dead and I had spent all my missiles taking out enemy fighters . I flew into the middle of the turret ring and they opened fire on me. I took a hit or two, but most of their missiles missed me and hit the starbase. It ended up getting destroyed in a crossfire. I hypered.
Post your stories!
Keep the exaggeration/fabrication to a minimum.
We want to hear it the way it happened.

One day, I was flying an custom mission: "destroy a big stabase" The starbase was defend by an couple of turret. My wingmen attack a little group of turret and civillian that we see before the starbase. Whit an stupid comportement, I continue to attack the starbase. Then I see that arround the starbase there his more then one group of turret. I pas trough them. Missile where passing there and there. The totality of the ennemi ship that I can see ran after me. But I don't take any damage, I destroy four turret, one starbase some civillian and tree ennemi ship. Then my wingmen come to help me.

The only thing coming to mind now is an 'Attack Homeworld' mission I once flew with a custom ship of mine. Part of the story is that ship which was armed with Daycorns and Geenees, had quite some turning ability and - here comes the relevant part - no shielding whatsoever.
Now there are four of our squadron clashing with probably as many of theirs. As soon as the fleets are within range the whole scanner screen lights up like a christmas tree, well you all know the picture. Missiles flying all over and overall chaos ensuing I turn and accelerate all over trying not to get hit and whenever I see a window of opportunity I squeeze off a missile at some enemy and - I lie you not - every single missile I fired during that battle hit and destroyed and enemy ship.

Getting a kill on a Barbarian using a drone with a extremely lucky plectron to the corner. He hadn't taken any hits previously, but I got him just right. That same mission I got two other kills and never once was hit myself
With sufficient sensor coverage from wingmates, drones can actually do a huge amount of damage.

the best I ever did was in a custom ship that I had gotten into trouble with by being forced into a head on collision with an enemy vessel. I destroyed the enemy vessel, then had two enemy ships circling me in such a way that I could not escape by going forward. I pulled my ship into hard reverse and released a salvo of Yatari's that just happened to be precisely spaced to hit both of the enemy ships and destroy them. I got out of that mission with a gold cross and a big smile.
