18/1/2015 THE DUKELY DUCKS SQUADRON will fly sorties in the SYNDICATE SQUADRON Vintage Mission (Whatever it is)

Post by SeaLord on Wed Jan 14, 2015 12:50 pm

Available pilots meet at 1650 UTC for a 1700 takeoff for Sunday SYNDICATE SQUADRON Vintage Mission, whatever it may be.  Other pilots may link up with pilots already in the air at any time thereafter.

This is what each member who answered the roll call reported as his availability for a Sunday (please correct me if I am wrong):

Dukely:             1800-2100 UTC
GenMarkof007:  2000-Until He Has to Quit UTC
Sealord:            1700-Until He Has to Quit UTC
DrZebra:           1700-2000 Until He Has to Quit UTC
Nefaro:             Undetermined UTC/As Availability Presents Itself
Tailmange:        As of Posting Has Not Answered Roll Call/Unknown, But is Expected to Fly as Usual.

As of posting, all other pilots have not answered roll call.

Note: Dr. Zebra has suggested a sortie beginning at 2200.  Therefore, I suggest that pilots plan sorties before that time to end prior to 2200 UTC, so that we can fly a sortie, or sorties, beginning at 2200.

I believe the best way to contact each other online once flying starts may be through the in-game chat or Steam friends messages (although I am still experimenting with the latter). To coordinate the initial meeting--let's plan to meet on the chat here at 1650 UTC for a 1700 takeoff.  Anyone that misses the initial link up on chat, should be able to find those in-game easily enough through the in-game chat.

As usual, all pilots should use profiles with the prefix *DD* before the rest of the name.

If there are any questions, problems, or suggestions about this, please start a message thread for the airing of grevances.

So official! I will try to make one of the take off times. You can remove my other random flights I setup from the calendar too.

It is part of the "whipping this motley crew into shape" and "razor-sharp chilled steel" thing I was talking about. Well, let me clarify, they will be a motley crew of razor-sharp chilled steel.

I don't think I can change anything you have posted, so I am leaving that stuff alone. Also, feel free to tell me to make changes to anything I post or to send me directions or suggestions for new posts. I won't be offended, believe me. I don't want to interfere in any way with your role as squadron leader. The way I see it, I am just here to assist you.

To everyone--let me know if you have suggestions for training, scheduling, or anything operations related. I will do what I can on my own initiative and bring the other things to Dukely for him to deal with as he sees fit.

Haha, ok sounds good. I deleted my crappy flights since I didn't have any plans for them and the calendar was being mean to me.

Good news for Voice on TS3...

Post by GenMarkof007 on Sun Jan 18, 2015 10:01 am

Hi Guys,

It seem's that the TS3 does work with the pass...
But we need to setup the TS3 and the ROF game better.
I'll try to see if I can find a setup for this.

Cheers

Intelligence Report on today's Vintage Mission:

The mission is the Somme bombing offensive of September 1918, so late model fighters are available, many loaded with bombs. Gotha V's and HP 0-400's are also in the mix. Wind is 5 m/s from the south. The objective is to bomb the #$% out of your opponent while stopping him from doing the same to you. Pretty simple in theory.

To reiterate, my understanding is that it is squadron policy that we fly operations in realism mode with no voice comms and minimal chat.  A bomber crew together on one aircraft are allowed voice comms.  However, the final call is with Dukely and DrZebra on voice comm use for today.

I'm good with this, I think that bombers and two-seater recon should be allowed to speak on TS3...
If granted by the Dukely Ducks commander! Wink

Voice comms between pilot and gunner only! Zebra and I never discussed communication between multiple bombers but I think he feels the same as I do. Communicate with other bombers on the ground then take off for your targets.

Understood. We have several channels to work with, so we should be able to fly a couple bomber crews with internal comms only.

I will create 2 bombers rooms and 2 recons rooms, that way at take off, bomber #1 pilot and gunners can enter that room, and Bomber #2 pilot and gunners can enter that room.
Is that good?
