Enemy: Jerec Asyr
Vanessa would continue to crush on the corvette as though it were a tin can. The destruction of such a vessel would, one would certainly hope, at least discourage their associates from getting any closer for fear the Sith would actually turn their guns on their compatriots. As it currently stood, it was 120 fighters against 200 bombers and fighters - bombers and fighters that would have their targeting systems disrupted as well given the broad-spectrum effects of the EM probes. This would making locking on to critical systems of any of the XoXaans difficult.
The approach of the X1 corvette persuaded Vanessa to change her target, once more sparing the crew of another one of the ships as she focused on it. Unsure as to whether there was a secure communication channel the corvette had to the pilots that was not stymied by the jamming, perhaps on some special ultra high frequency band or using some unusual technology, she focused on the other vessel and began to squeeze on it, having given herself a brief moment of respite. Crushing vessels with the power of the Dark Side, even mere corvettes, was not something she had regularly done, even during her time in the Unknown Regions, though she had done it before.
The XoXaans would shift the fire from their solar ionization batteries to the squadrons as they were at long, then medium range. While the weapons were hardly as capable as the anti-fighter beams typically found on one of Vanessa's ships, they did possess shield-piercing capabilities and as such could prove problematic to the enemy fleet. Visual targeting systems would allow for at least some degree of accuracy against hostile targets. The fighters in question, ignoring the qualifications of their pilots as the Empire's finest, were also incredibly powerful - five squadrons of Eightgun-class assault fighters and five of Forge-class interceptors.
The Eightgun was, as its name suggested, a fighter possessing eight primary weapons - the HL-7 xaser weapon, to be precise, a weapon with a higher rate of fire and effective shield-stripping capabilities in concert with slightly below average hull damage and modest subsystem damage. Its firepower was the greatest of any vessel available in the Sith Empire, great enough to effortlessly cleave through even a heavy bomber. The Eightguns would take lead, being backed by the Forge-class interceptors. While not designed for speed or gifted with heavy firepower, the Forge possessed extreme maneuverability, allowing it to turn within any fighter or bomber its opposition possessed.
The squadrons of fighters would stay near the capital ships, waiting for their prey to come within close range. Each Eightgun would have a Forge located behind it, ready to snap around and get any ship off the back of the assault fighters in question if it came into the area. For the time being, as Vanessa crushed down on X1, the XoXaan IIs would continue to fire at M1, albeit with reduced damage potential given their solar ionization batteries were not unloading on it.

Enemy: Dax Fyre, Tsubasa Kira
The Heresiarch was beginning to recharge its larger weaponry, both its forward gun and starboard guns. The secondary weaponry of the Heresiarch would continue firing upon the Rigor, while the secondary forward-mounted weaponry would fire at the Verdict as well. The battlecruiser would shift position to bring its portside weapons to bear on either of the other two remaining vessels - whichever one came over into place first.
The corvettes, two of which were destroyed, would essentially get back to back in groups of four and one group of three, allowing them to defend each other from attacks by the swarming escorts and ensuring their backs were always defended by another corvette. This would allow them to fire off shots with their SBeams at the passing enemies and focus their baradium missiles on incoming corvettes.

Enemy: Kimiko Taiyo
The two battleships would jump in, launch their pods, and immediately open fire with broadsides from their LRBBeams at close range on the sides of the enemy ships. The pods would smash into the bridges of the enemy vessels, with some dumping troops in elsewhere. The Dark Troopers and their variations would immediately exit the pods, beginning the intrusion - they just needed to capture Ki herself.
