The Ghost Hawks-
Conceived as a stealthy, unique flight squadron, the Hawks have grown into a diverse multi-role squad that offers many avenues of YSFlight experience. We encourage you to take a moment to get to know us and what our squadron is all about.
Operating from both our carrier and ground bases, the VFA-49 is a unique naval squadron participating in air to air, air to ground, air to sea, and rotorwing operations. Whatever your skill or preference in YSFlight is, there is a place for you in the 49th.
Unique and Modern aircraft-
From the Raptor to the Lancer, you can find some of the most beautiful and legendary aircraft in modern history. Our aircraft range from a real world to fictional aircraft mix, to a mix in-between. Be warned, you’ll be hard pressed to find a bird you won’t want to fly. There is something for everyone in our hangers.
A machine of many parts…
A powerful machine is only as good as the sum of its parts. Each one of our sub squadrons (divisions) is finely tuned for a specific role, sporting specialized aircraft and weapons reflecting their unique roles. You can be sure, whatever your talent or preference in YSFlight may be, you have a place in the squadron.
Division 1: Night Cobras (motto ~ “the tip of the spear..”)
Air to ground/sea. The Night Cobras perform the difficult task of SEAD (Suppression of Enemy Air defenses) and ground support. Specialized aircraft allow them to engage a variety of ground based targets. Their trademark fast, extremely low level attacks pave the way for the rest of the spear to follow.
Division 2: Black Falcons (motto~ “Fire from the Clouds..”)
Air to Air. Screaming across the sky, the Black Falcons’ only task is to kill enemy aircraft. Armed with the latest and greatest fighter aircraft, they tear through wing and air to ensure clear skies for the rest of the 49th.
Division 3 Fire Ballers (motto ~ “rain fire from the sky..”)
Bombing. Pulverizing enemy forces into the ground is the primary objective of the bomber pilots in the Fire Ballers. With their advanced bombers these pilots make sure that enemy runways and hangers vanish from existence, preventing further threats from reoccurring.
Division 4 Arch Angels (motto ~ “on a wing and a prayer..“)
Rotor wing Operations. Arch Angel pilots must display a prowess and talent in maneuvering their unique helicopters, which can range from maneuverable attack choppers to large and powerful gunships. Arch Angels provide close air support to ground troops, taking out enemy armor and dug in positions. These pilots must remain calm at all times in order to survive the wall of steel and shrapnel they fly into daily.
Training is simple in the 49th. Contact an officer, set up a time to log into the server, and learn the skills of combat from the vets and practice online.
Our forum also features a wealth of tactical knowledge and wisdom in online articles that you can use to improve your skills. Just another perk of being a Ghost Hawk.
As you develop your skills, you can join the War Games. This is an all out competition amongst your squad mates to prove who's best and to improve yourself along the way. Team building has never been more fun.
At the 49th we promote a healthy and enjoyable gaming environment, free of infighting, factions, and outright abuse. You can be absolutely sure you will be treated with respect. We will not turn you away because of lack of skill, we only ask that you exhibit a level maturity befitting a responsible gamer. After all, we’re all here to have some fun with a great flight game.
Application is simple and easy. Just follow the below link to our forum and create a new application topic. Just fill out the questions asked there. A senior officer will review your app promptly and contact you. You must be at least 13 years of age (exceptions can occur), own a joystick, and be fairly active online.
Whether you are looking to improve your combat/flight skills or simply need a change of pace in YSFlight, we invite you to consider the VFA-49, a choice for a fun and action packed future.
