Is there such a squad?
« on: January 27, 2019, 10:52:15 PM »
Are there any squads who are organized and do you squad/wing-man tactics and use radio discipline?

I'm curious as I like the the simulation aspects such as FSO but I think people forget that their squad mates might still be engaged in combat after they get shot down and start babbling on the squad channel. I find this very distracting when I'm engaged with 50 enemy and friendly aircraft and my bullets will kill friend and foe alike.

That said I think a Schwarm with half decent pilots or even a Rotte could be dang near unstoppable in the MA. Obviously it might take more then that in FSO.

I remember back in the day flying with JG27 that if we could get 4 pilots in the air and nobody wondered off it seemed that we all made it back to base most of the time. Just curious  if there is such a squad.

Lately we haven't been participating as a squad in the MA, due to low squadron turnout. We participate regularly in FSOs, however. You're welcome to join us for a tryout any FSO night.
