It looks like RVB are coming to the Goons defence, as assistance against D A R K. (from viewing the war in-game). Rumour has it that Goons and RVB are forming a cartel, and now it looks like mutual assistance pact.
I am an observer, not a participant (at least not yet anyway).
I missed one CO repair effort.
The second had a lot of suspect repairers on field; with opportunistic ganking of those ships. A few went down.
