91st Bomb Group- A Restart. ;)
« on: June 04, 2017, 07:45:45 AM »
Hello, folks.

I've been back for a little while now, gotten a feel for how the game and community is these days, and have decided to rekindle an old flame known as the 91st Bomb Group (H)- "The Ragged Irregulars". I've already got an X.O on board, known as Zener, and we can be found on the Bishop side of the fence on vox channel 191.

We seem to gravitate toward getting some AH time in on the weekends due to real life (I work long hours during peak summer business), so eventually, when it comes to a squad/group night, it will be established at some point during the course of the weekend.

We are recruiting, with the goal of recreating the fun we had back in the day with our particular fondness for the B17 in its roll in high alt heavy bombardment.

There are a few peripheral things we need to set up, such as a website, but we're starting off just looking for a few patient recruits who demonstrate

-good sportsmanship

-good attitude, and a

-mature mindset. (18+ preferred)

As mentioned, ***this takes patience*** (I cannot stress this enough), as our missions do take time. In the past, we regularly pulled off many long missions, complete with escort squads and individuals who voluntarily devoted their time to keep us covered.

The opposing forces that have dealt with us in the past deserve equal credit for their role in helping create a lot of fun, and in many instances, they were quite effective against many of our missions. Many times, while we've had successful bomb sorties, the opposition made it exceedingly difficult in accomplishing others, resulting in a lot of "white-knuckle" action for our escorts, and some of our flights getting shredded out of the sky. ;)

We hope to foster that environment again with some new members, and perhaps some old hands that have flown with us before.

Thank you for your attention and consideration. <Salute>

I would just like to add that we have a blast flying these missions.  If you always wanted to know how to land a bomb on a dandelion from 28,000 feet alt, ThunderEGG is the guy who can bring you to that level.

If you've never given this niche of AHIII a try, come fly a mission with us and see what it's all about.

Yes.  Dandelion.  Make one run inbound to mow down most of the dandelions; this makes the sheep concentrate where the remaining dandelions are, making them easy targets for the outbound run.

HOST: Sheep F20SHP002 has been destroyed, no more bleating out of it for 90 minutes

Progress Update:

X.O. Zener has devoted a lot of time and energy toward getting this group back up and running. Custom maps have been created, which are a relief for tired eyes like mine ;). A website will follow at some point as we settle on content and resources.

Hit us up if you're interested. Generally, we request that you give us a trial run for a week or two before deciding to commit to the 91st.

I'll try to get some time in during the week as my work days will allow (11 hour shifts as of late), but there is definitely time on weekends to get together and do something rather explosive. ;)

Look us up. Vox 191 Bishop

Some of my fondest memories of a decade + in AH have been doing 91st/Thndregg missions. Can't wait to see you guys back rocking and rolling with the Bish.
