Next corporation up for our continued news focused broadcast is Melnie Vanagi. The "Hawks" was a small corporation that took up residence in Fourth District during its first year in Providence. Back then the corporation was only a small numbers of 15 capsuleers which now over times has grown into a medium sized corporation with 54 members. It is one of the most active combat corporation within the Fourth District and has shown great expertise in frigate combat piloting. we have the pleasure to talk to Kra senior RA, CEO of Melenie Vanagi via a VR link.
District News: "Good morning sir. Pleasure to have you uplinked to us."
Kra: "Thank you"
District News: "I had the opportunity to talk to mr. RA just before we started to broadcast and we talk about the govern structure of Melenie Vanagi. And you mr.RA sad that you don't have a hierarchy system in you corporation, that its more of a open ruling system. Is that correct? "
Kra: "Yes, that is correct,as many of our members are from minmatar heritage we have found that a more open non-strict hierarchy works best. We feel that it is unnecessary in our case."
District News: "As I see. But there is no problem to respect the authority of Fourth District ? "
Kra: "No not realy, Fourth District has a strong military background, we respect that, and our corporate more anarchistic approach does not effect the alliance at large. And our dedication to providence region and our previous alliance with CVA comes down to my will as leader. The others is out for prove themselves in combat and making money. One could say that we are aligned with a practical mindset if we were in the Caldari State, making money at all cost."
District News: I see, very well. Your combat record is very impressive and Fourth District sure has a lot to thank your pilots for. Moving on could you say something of your earlier days as a capsuleer corporation?
Kra: "Sure, Melnie Vanagi or "Black Hawks" was founded by group of friends and united pilots speaking the same local language (Latvian language). Soon after its dawn MV joined CVA alliance and went straight into bloody fight to defend Providence region that was invaded by southern hordes. It was probably one of reasons corporation went straight into heavy warfare orientation and has kept it to these days."
District News: Ah so it has always been a combat oriented corporation?
Kra: "Yes, with such heavy focus on guerrilla warfare corporation specialised on light and fast hulls mostly. Frigates and cruisers even attack battle cruisers but rarely larger hulls. Recently we have started to develop capital ship wing but it grows slowly."
District News: "Hehe, thats a big leap from small hulls, sure you are able to handle the turns of a dreadnought?"
Kra "Yes, that won't be a problem"
District News:" Please continue Mr.RA"
Kra: "At its beginning corporation was NBSI and even attacked some ships from citadel community, but since my joining it went straight into full support of Lord Aralis that was our mentor and so Melenie Vanagi started to grow towards supporting Amarr Empire and my training even hardened this direction. MV are not picky about attacking different pilots of New Eden as we are convinced that in most cases they are pirates and will attack us if given such chance. This conviction sometimes conflicts with alliance views, but as we are reimbursing all losses that occur accidentally killing some friendly pilots we get along well, I suppose."
District News: "Can you please tell our readers more about the non combat side of the "Black Hawks"?
Kra: "We are quite relaxed about our life's in space as we are immortal and life is way more enjoyable with good vine and few exotic dancer on board. Motto known to our comrades is - we fly sober but shoot drunk. Second one is - we came to kill all of you. What is quite true. HED-GP and Rahadalon inhabitants know our pilots quite well and we are feared by corporations red to us and living close enough."
District News: "Hehe, so we have seen on your kill statistic. Well keep up the good work and it has been a pleasure speaking with you sir."
Kra: "Thank you"
