Default Looking for Squadron

I have been playing DCS on and off again for many years and I have never gotten into the multiplayer aspect of the game and I am looking to make that transition.

I am a former United States Air Force E-3 AWACS Communications Operator and Technician with over 2000 hours flight time, and a current Avionics Supervisor in the civilian sector. I know military jargon very well and know what terms like smash (air speed), BRA (Bearing, Range, Altitude), and Rifle (AGM) are so you wouldn't have to hold my hand, but I am wanting to get into teamwork and tactics, which I don't have any (in-game) experience. I am looking for a group of people active in the US time zones, with good organization and things like planned missions and activities.

I use Track IR5, Thrustmaster Warthog HOTAS and rudder pedals. Specs include a 7700k 4.5Ghz, 1080GTI, and 32g Ram.

I own following DCS modules:
FC3 Aircraft

Will be picking up the FA-18

Thank you and I hope to hear from you

Hi Swampy. We are a 21+ group who hold weekly flights every Sunday at 8PM Eastern time, generally we have 12 or more pilots and run full scale CAP/SEAD/strike/transport cooperative scripted missions. We also host occasional pickup missions and training sessions. We consider ourselves a "casual serious" group that try to observe proper brevity and procedure but do not have the strict mandatory attendance of some groups you'll find.

We run a dedicated practice server more or less 24/7 and will run a few 1 on 1 flights with you to familiarize you with our SOPs.

If that sounds like what you're looking for feel free to pay us a visit. http://355thvfs.enjin.com

VMFA-251 still has a few pilot openings available. We are an F/A-18C squadron currently training with the AV-8B until the F/A-18C module gets released. The squadron is led by a former Marine pilot and we have quite a few former military members on the roster too.

Hey there Swampy. Swing by our discord and say hello to some of our pilots and see if we're a group you'd be interested in.

We're a US Naval Aviation group focused on the framework of a Carrier Strike Group with an associated Marine Expeditionary Brigade. We have a number of subordinate squadrons that are run independent of the overall group. The group is tied together by a common flight night (Sundays at 2000 eastern and Tuesday at 2030 eastern) creating a pretty immersive enviroment with a full airspace. We aim to fly 2 missions per month and 6 trainings per month, with an annual campaign of linked missions.

CSG-1 currently has the following active squadrons:
VMA-223: AV-8B Harrier
VMA-231: AV-8B Harrier
HMLA-167: UH-1H
VFA-127: F-5E
MACS-2: ATC/GCI/JTAC (Combined Arms & LoATC)

Future Squadrons are staffed and ready to open:
VFA-25: F/A-18C
VMFA-122: F/A-18C
VF-2: F-14B

The group has about 35 pilots on roster right now and are growing.

I second the csg1 they are looking for controllers and you could fly when not controlling unles you want to be a fac(a) then you could do both.
