At 6:41:27 on YC113.12.01, a Sansha sympathizer by the name of Kanza Mikakka detonated a Caldari Bantam near the Federation Administrative Outpost. The Bantam was loaded with nuclear payload and triggers, and upon detonation the pilot broadcast in local, ‘For the Master,’ referring to none other than Sansha Kuvakei.
It remains unclear if the earlier attackers were Sansha sympathizers as well, though given the similarities between the incidents it would not be a far stretch of the imagination.
Kanza Mikakka was registered as a day old pilot with the Science and Trade Institute and was not flagged as a criminal. It is believed the pilot’s certifications were forged, like the others.
Kanza Mikakka survived the explosion, and his current whereabouts are unknown.

[ 2011.12.01 07:07:03 ] Aquila Shadow > from what i scanned ther were: Nuclear Pulse Generator, Thermonuclear Trigger Unit in his cargo hold
[ 2011.12.01 07:07:58 ] Urziel99 > that hardware is a little beyond the ken or financial reach of a fresh capsuleer.
[ 2011.12.01 07:09:07 ] Gabrel tosh > that and he has to have som kinda traning on how to install and wire up nukes
[ 2011.12.01 07:09:45 ] Kletius > i bet he was a patsy for someone else
[ 2011.12.01 07:09:51 ] Urziel99 > true, that also explains the ship type. The bantam has the largest cargo bay of the frigates available.
