Cool TAWDCS.org - CVW-88 Battalion is looking for serious pilots and RIO's




Hello everyone,

We are looking for serious pilots and RIO's to join our Batallion.
We have at least 2 RIO spots open, but we are also looking for F-14B, F/A-18C and A/V-8B, Chopper pilots.


The CVW-88 Battalion is aiming for the most realistic and immersive virtual experience in TAW DCS.
We follow real life procedures as closely as possible, use strict and perfect radio communications and train HARD to get to this high level of virtual flying!
This type of flight simming is not for everyone, because it requires a certain type of mindset, dedication and motivation to do it right.
If you are looking for relatively short, action packed missions which can be played without much in-depth planning and preparation, then the CVW-88 is NOT the right place for you.

If you are looking for very realistic, in-depth planned events, where flying to the ‘AO’ means you may have to rely on Air to Air refuel to be able to make it there and back home, following the correct waypoints/altitudes/speeds to be ‘on station’ at the predetermined time (ToT), where the other Squadrons are a key part of the success of the mission at hand, then the CVW-88 is THE PLACE TO BE!!!

We create MDC’s (Mission Data Cards) where all important information is stated, then we import this into DCS so every pilot has the info in his Knee Board Map while performing the missions.
We use the PERSIAN GULF as our default MAP, our main but not exclusive focus is NAVAL OPERATIONS, we only use full fidelity modules which are currently the F-14B, F/A-18C, A/V-8B and all Helicopters.
Any upcoming Naval Operations capable full fidelity modules will be incorporated as well.

We fly mostly PvE Campaign missions, but occasionally also do PvP.
Our missions are hand made every time, where we start a campaign from scratch, have objectives, depending on the outcome the next sortie is a continuation of the previous sortie. This is done until the complete campaign is finished, after that we start a new campaign from scratch.
Sometimes we also fly campaigns in the Caucasus or any upcoming maps, but the default map is the Persian Gulf.

We are all very happy and willing to help you get the best and most out of your module of choice, but you are required to train on certain topics where you lack some experience by yourself, without us having to try and motivate you to do just that.
This is the type of pilot we are looking for, a motivated and dedicated person who WANTS to be great in all things needed to perform realistic combat sorties, as perfectly as possible in a well oiled teamplay war machine.
This requires you to go out and look for ways to improve yourself, so when we actually fly missions together, we will all be at our BEST and only have to focus on the mission and not on other things that may distract us from that!!!

The CVW-88 hold its weekly Mandatory Event on SUNDAY’s @ 1945 CE(S)T (Summer Time 1745Z, Winter Time 1845Z).

The CVW-88 hold its weekly Training Sessions on THURSDAY’s @ 2030 CE(S)T (Summer Time 1830Z, Winter Time 1930Z).

The minimum requirements for joining the CVW-88 are quite high and are as follows:
– Being PRO-ACTIVE, willing to read and learn documents and perfect your skills in your own time, outside of regular training events
– Able to fly formation perfectly and able to do Air to Air Refuel (AAR) in fair weather
– Basic experience using Navigation, Combat Systems and Weapons
– Experience with using SRS (Simple Radio) and Basic knowledge of ATC Communication
– Able to do a CASE 1 recovery on a CARRIER
– Able to speak and understand proficient ENGLISH
– Using TrackIR or a similar system (also VR)
– Owning one of the following FULL FIDELITY MODULES: F-14B, F/A-18C , A/V-8B, Helicopters
– Owning the PERSIAN GULF MAP

Been flying with the CVW-88 for about 4 months now, and I absolutely love it!


I came in with some training needs, but was willing to put the time in to practice, and the guys all helped me learn a lot. Moreover, a really friendly bunch makes the community great.


The scheduled sessions also make things a little easier for me - since I know when the events are.

I'd have to bump that. I joined 88th quite recently as RIO for Tomcat. We've got excellent people, exciting and well thought training and events. Community is great indeed. I've hardly ever been flying online before, but in 88th I really feel at home.

Just a friendly reminder for those perusing the forums - CVW-88 are still recruiting for F/A-18C, F-14B pilot and RIO, AV-8B, and helicopters.

Having recently been working on our training programme for new pilots and RIOs, we'd love to welcome some new blood to our naval aviation operations.

If you're interested, please visit https://tawdcs.org/battalions/hardcore/ to find out more!

Hello everyone,

If you are interested in flying DCS as realistic as virtually possible, we invite you to take a look at our TAWDCS CVW-88 Battalion.

We are looking for fairly experienced pilots who already have the basics of flying and basic US NAVY procedures in their minds and fingertips.
If you want to go 'balls to the wall' realistic, our friendly community may be the right place for you.

Currently we fly only at European times, but we have several members from outside Europe as well, so if your time schedule allows you to fly at our times, you are more than welcome to join as well.

Check out this link for more information:
