Rook Squadrons Coordinated Ops
« on: July 12, 2015, 09:35:49 AM »
  I'm looking to working alongside another squadron(s) for my 47 Ronin "Squad Night"
each Thursday night at 9PM Eastern for some "joint operations".
  This cooperative effort will see each squad assigned a particular task for the main
mission. This could be a separate fighter sweep to BARCAP  between an enemy
airfield and a second field we might be trying to capture. It could be direct fighter
escort, it could be your squad in bombers for the hour or two it will run.
  I would be responsible for working up the "OPORDS" for each week's mission(s)
as well as the plane set to be used for that night. ie: it might be German or Japanese
themed, etc.. and getting them out to the squadron COs a couple of days in
advance for forwarding to their pilots.
  It is my thought that fleshing things out a bit, and involving other Rook squadron(s)
will result in some fun missions/strikes and may allow to a smaller degree, an
operational level of operations on the map. ie: op(s) not directed at a single
field, but spread out over several sectors.
  I'm not looking for a "horde" and these will not be "strat" or "HQ" runs.
Squadron Commanders who would like to give this a shot are encouraged to
PM me here on the board and include their squadron name, in-game handle and email
address. The email address will be used to disseminate the OPORDS each
week which will also include each squadron(s) planes/tasks for the evening.
  Depending on the level of interest, I think we can do a lot of fun stuff
cooperatively and beyond that, meet and fly with folks we don't normally
have the opportunity to fly with in the main arena.
  If you've got a pure "fighters only" squadron, there's a place for you.
If you've got a "GV operations only", there's a place for you.
Your squad does only bomber ops? No problem, there's a place for you.
  If you've got only two guys in your squad, perfectly fine. I'm not
concerned about size. My main concern is coordination and cooperation.
  I think we can have a lot of fun with this right out of the gate.

Best regards,
Oddball
Commanding Officer
The 47 Ronin

Precisely so! But only for one night of the week. The rest of the week we can
revert back to stale, same-old-stuff, gameplay. :)
